The 84th annual Academy Awards stormed through LA last Sunday like a Gucci-clad swashbuckler riding a white stallion! 5 Alarm Music may not have been swarmed with flash bulbs on the red carpet, but our music made its appearance in films nominated and awarded Hollywood’s highest honor. Move over, Meryl Streep!
The highly anticipated American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara definitely lived up to expectations! With five nominations including Best Actress, Cinematography, Film Editing, Sound Mixing and Sound Editing, it makes this film a definite must-see.
I think everyone familiar with the Swedish version was curious how they were going to portray certain disturbing scenes. That chick is hard core! Listen for these two tracks from the Cavendish Music and JW Media Music catalogs:

The financial thriller Margin Call hosts a star-studded cast including Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons. What better way to score a financial crisis scene than with a heartfelt opera aria? Listen for this classic from the Abaco Classics Music Library:

We all know that a great movie trailer is the key to building excitement for an upcoming release. Movie previews are the best reason for showing up early to a movie theater! The Trailer Trash music library added extra rumble and impact to The Help (Winner for Best Supporting Actress, nominated for Best Picture, Best Actress) and War Horse (nominated for Best Picture, Cinematography, Art Direction, Original Score, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing) trailers.
Congratulations to all the winners and nominees! We can’t wait to offer up more great music to future blockbusters.
