David Arnold Receives Richard Kirk Award at BMI Film & TV Awards

Press Release

LOS ANGELES, May 18, 2011 — Leading U.S. music rights organization Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) staged its annual Film/TV Awards tonight at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles. During the invitation-only gala, BMI celebrated the composers of music featured in the past year’s top-grossing films, top-rated prime-time network television series, and highest-ranking cable network programs. Hosted by BMI President & CEO Del Bryant and Doreen Ringer Ross, Vice President, Film/TV Relations, the ceremony also featured the presentation of the Richard Kirk Award to David Arnold.

The Richard Kirk Award is bestowed on composers who have made significant contributions to the realm of film and television music. As the 2011 honoree, David Arnold joins an elite list that includes Rachel Portman, Alan Silvestri, David Newman, Thomas Newman, Christopher Young, George S. Clinton, Harry Gregson-Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Michael Kamen, Mark Mothersbaugh, Danny Elfman, Alan Menken, Mike Post, Lalo Schifrin, John Barry, Charles Fox, and John Williams.

David Arnold’s mastery of traditional film composition spiked with cheeky pop irreverence has yielded scores for a diverse collection of films including James Bond installments Tomorrow Never Dies, The World is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Grammy- and BAFTA- nominated Casino Royale, and Quantum of Solace, the Grammy-winning Independence Day, the 2000 remake of Shaft, Stargate, Zoolander, Godzilla, The Young Americans, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Changing Lanes, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and so many more, as well as BBC series Little Britain and Sherlock, and British mockumentary series Come Fly With Me.

Multiple award winners included Alexandre Desplat (SACEM), Brian Tyler, Harry Gregson-Williams, Blake Neely, Steve Jablonsky, David Buckley (PRS), Daniel Licht, Pete Townshend (PRS), Keb’ Mo’, Doug Bossi, Matt Koskenmaki, Andy Kubiszewski, Michael Suby, and Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Atticus Ross for The Social Network.
