HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: 'Irishman,' 'Once Upon a Time' Among Nominees

Legendary composer Burt Bacharach will receive the Icon Award. Industry veteran Bob Hunka will receive the Legacy Award.

The guild presents four awards for best music supervision for film, at various budget levels.

The guild also presents two song honors, one for film and one for television. Here, too, music supervisors are honored, along with the songwriters. Three of the five film song nominees — "Spirit" from The Lion King, "Into the Unknown" from Frozen II and "Glasgow (No Place Like Home)" from Wild Rose — are on the Oscar shortlist for best original song, but the other two guild nominees ("One Little Soldier" from Bombshell and "Don't Call Me Angel" from Charlie's Angels) were left off the Oscar shortlist.

Both newly written and newly revived songs are eligible in the song categories. This year's nominees on the TV side include newly recorded versions of C. Carson Parks' “Something Stupid," which was a global smash in 1967 for Nancy Sinatra and Frank Sinatra, and The Killers' "All These Things That I've Done," a song from that band's 2004 debut album.

Evyen Klean is competing against himself in two categories: best music supervision in a docuseries and best music supervision in a television movie. Hot songwriter IIya Salmanzadeh is competing against himself for best song written and/or recorded for a film.
