2020 Reel Music Awards – 2020 scores for consideration

Another bumper year of music from movies, TV shows, and games (and other interactive media) provides solace for a difficult year for everyone.

Music written for the various media areas has always had an appeal because of the way it can instil a whole gamut of emotions in the listener over a relatively short period of time (unless it’s a 2+ hour, 3 CD complete score release). And these soundtracks/scores have been needed in a big way in 2020. Usually “awards” such as those announce annually by Reel Music have really had little bearing in the grand scheme of things but this time, although they may still mean very little to most people, hopefully highlighting some of the most enjoyable albums will help point some in the direction of music that helps brighten the day.

As before, I have decided to post a list of titles that I have been listening to over the course of 2020 (and slightly into 2021) and which have been the basis of the upcoming awards – which will be announced in due course. Again, the purpose of these lists is to feed anyone’s curiosity to see what sort of titles are out there and to see what titles have gone towards making my final lists.

The lists are long and there are likely to be some mistakes to be found but I hope that any errors have been kept to a minimum. Any mistakes are purely my responsibility. Some people may be curious of my choice of allocation for some titles to some genres. I have tried my best to assign all titles to the most appropriate genres but it can be difficult when some titles cross several genres (according to imdb.com).

I was curious to see if the covid-19 pandemic had had an effect on my listening characteristics or the type of music for films, TV, etc. that was released and that I had been listening to. My total number of titles listened to in 2020 was broadly in line with my listening experience in 2019 (only about 5% down in 2020 compared with 2019). The number of albums from drama, comedy and action/adventure/thriller movies were down in 2020 compared with the previous year, with albums from fantasy/sci-fi/horror and animated movies being of a similar proportion in both years. The proportion of titles from documentaries and television were significantly higher in 2020 compared with 2019: for documentaries numbers were up by almost 70%! All these numbers probably don’t mean anything but I thought it was interesting that there were some fluctuations in the types of films available (as measured by their respective score releases).

So, below is a list of all the titles where I was able to listen to their soundtracks/scores over the course of 2020. Some high-profile titles will be missing: any music that I listened to and had a very strong negative listening experience were excluded pretty quickly from further listening and don’t feature in these lists. But I can’t rule out the possibility that an omission is just a huge error in my part.

Finally, in order to qualify for inclusion in the 2020 Reel Music Awards consideration list the title had to have received some sort of release in 2020 somewhere (according to imdb.com and additional internet searching) and had not been considered in 2019. I extended the monitoring time past the end of 2020 to capture any ‘stragglers’ – music from a 2020-released titles where the album was not available until into 2021. I think the cut-off date was 5th February 2021. Any 2020 titles released after this date (and I am seeing a lot of them) will now be assessed in the archival section in the 2021 Reel Music Awards.

As before, titles released in 2020 for ‘archival titles’ (i.e., music albums available in 2020 to movies, TV shows, etc. originally released in 2019 or previously) are not listed here but will appear in the upcoming nominations post.

      Hi Ley,
      There’s a lot there to try to absorb! Maybe wait until the nominations post (hoping to get this up in the next couple of weeks).

    Alan, Thanks so much for checking out our lil’ indie film Blood From Stone and considering our score for your nominations! Really appreciate you giving it a shot. Our composer really did build a unique sound for the world we were trying to evoke and it’s wonderful to see his work get this recognition – especially amongst some truly iconic composers from around the world! Quite an impressive list!
