BMI Congratulates its SCL Award Winners
On Tuesday night, the Society of Composer & Lyricists presented their inaugural awards at the Skirball Center in LA, honoring composers and songwriters in all visual media. Winning in all five categories were some of Hollywood’s hottest composers, all of whom are BMI affiliates. In addition, the SCL presented legendary BMI composer Thomas Newman with the Spirit of Collaboration Award for his enduring partnership with director Sam Mendes, with whom he worked once again on the current box office hit 1917.
