Composer Craig Armstrong to Be Feted With Ascap’s Henry Mancini Award

19 February 2016 6:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers will present Craig Armstrong with its prestigious Henry Mancini Award at its 31st annual Screen Music Awards on March 24.

The awards ceremony — formerly known as the Ascap Film & TV Awards — recognizes composers and songwriters from the past year’s top films, television shows and video games.

Armstrong, best known for his work with director Baz Luhrmann, resulting in his Golden Globe-winning score for “Moulin Rouge!” and Grammy-nominated score in “The Great Gatsby,” is being recognized for his music contributions to film, television and visual media.

“There is nothing that Craig Armstrong can’t do,” said Ascap President and Chairman Paul Williams in a statement. “His work gleefully ignores genre distinctions, and he has expanded our understanding of what music can mean for a film, opera or theater production. We never know what to expect next from Craig’s restless imagination.”
