Greetings ScoreKeeper here with a brief bit of news about a score that I previewed back in August. Mark Snow has been nominated for a French César Award for his score for COEURS (2006) (previously titled PETITES PEURS PARTAGÉES). He is the only American to be nominated in his category. The awards will be presented on February 24th. I wrote up a small preview of the score which you can read HERE. Here is the press release announcing Mark’s nomination.
“COEURS" COMPOSER MARK SNOW NOMINATED FOR FRENCH CÉSAR AWARD Awards Presented February 24 (Paris, France) Film composer Mark Snow has been nominated for a César Award, the main national film award in France, for Best Music Written for a Film for "Coeurs" (International Title: "Private Fears in Public Places"). Snow is the only American composer nominated in the category. "Coeurs," adapted from an award-winning play, offers a darkly comedic glimpse into the lives of six lonely characters and the strange circumstances that connect them. It also received recognition in seven other categories including Best Director (Alain Resnais). The award ceremony takes place on February 24. Snow has received numerous Emmy nominations and ASCAP awards. Last year, he became the first composer to receive ASCAP's prestigious Golden Note Award for lifetime achievement and impact on music culture. Past Golden Note recipients include Elton John, Sean "Diddy" Combs and Stevie Wonder. He has enjoyed great popular success as well. Mark Snow's iconic "X-Files" theme remains a worldwide phenomenon. Classically trained at Julliard, he continues to blend his orchestral style with electronica influences. His impressive list of over one hundred television and feature film credits includes "Starsky and Hutch," "Crazy in Alabama," "Disturbing Behavior," "Millenium" and "Ghost Whisperer."
Congratulations Mark!
