Presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Kyd's evocative soundtrack to the video game "Hitman: Contracts" took home the trophy for Best Original Music at the ceremony held earlier this year. The award honors the best original music score within an interactive videogame, recognizing excellence in composition, production and integration.

Kyd's other gaming soundtracks include Microsoft's new Xbox 360 title "Gears of War" and the next Hitman release, "Blood Money."
