A week-and-a-half ago, I put up a list of films, performances, and technical achievements of which to take note. That post can be found here.
Among those I mentioned was Christopher Young, the composer for Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell. As it is unlikely that Young will receive any notice at the Academy Awards, I wanted to draw your attention to somewhere he has received notice.
The International Film Music Critics Association has released its nominees for the best in film composition from 2009.
Christopher Young received four nominations, including Film Score of the Year, Film Composer of the Year, Best Score for a Horror/Thriller, and Film Music Composition of the Year.
You can find the rest of the nominees and a press release at this link.
So, congratulations to Christopher Young. Here is a link to his nominated Film Music Composition, “Concerto to Hell.” It's worth a listen.
