SESAC Honors Music Composers and Publishers with Annual Awards

SESAC Rights Management is paying tribute to its creators with its annual Film & Television Composer Awards. The honorees were announced today on SESAC.com and across the organization’s social media platforms, celebrating the affiliates’ achievements of the past year. The online celebration honored music composers in the categories of film, streaming media, cable television, network television and local television.

“It’s been an extraordinarily challenging year for all music creators. This year, more than ever, it’s important that we pause to recognize the excellence of our film and television composers. Without their outstanding contributions to the creative process, the movies and television shows we love would be only a shadow of what they are,” said John Josephson, Chairman and CEO, SESAC Rights Management. “We’re beyond thrilled to honor our talented composers and publishers and look forward to celebrating their many accomplishments for years to come.”

“Film and television music is the best it’s ever been, thanks to our wonderful composers. While we miss celebrating with them in person this year, their incredible work continues and inspires us all,” said Erin Collins, SESAC’s Vice President Film, Television, and Developing Media.

Among the honorees, Christophe Beck was honored for his film composition of Frozen IIDaniel Lopatin for Uncut GemsAndy Grush and Taylor Stewart of The Newton Brothers for Dr. Sleep; and Randy Newman for Marriage Story and Toy Story 4.
