2019 Reel Music Awards – The Winners


2019 Reel Music Awards

MARCH 23, 2020 — The Reel Music Awards is an attempt to recognise and highlight some of the memorable music written for areas of media such as film, television and video games. 2019 was typical of other years in that I thought that there were many highlights and surprises along with a few disappointments (purely down to my own high expectations). I hope that these awards point readers in the direction of some of scores that they might otherwise not have come across. A full list of nominations can be found HERE.

As I write this post everyone’s lives are undergoing a great amount of upheaval and, perhaps, reading someone’s personal list of scores they feel merit some acknowledgement may not be a priority. I hope that everyone is keeping safe and that my choices enjoyably passes a few minutes of time. With all that’s been going on I haven’t had the time – and to be honest, had the inclination – to summarise my thoughts for my selections, but I hope to add some reasons for my choices at some point in the near future.
