SCL Oscar Reception

Dan Showbiz

Wow – it’s that time of the year again! The Academy Awards are tomorrow night, and so, today I had the annual Society of Composers and Lyricists reception to honor the nominees in the music categories. Everyone except John Williams was scheduled to make an appearance, but typical to Hollywood types, almost none of the song nominees showed up. However, present were the following nominees: Elliot Goldenthal and Julie Taymor (Frida), Elmer Bernstein (Far From Heaven), Philip Glass (The Hours), Thomas Newman (Road to Perdition). Also present were such folks as Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Leonard Maltin, Bruce Broughton, and others. You can check out some pix here, and I should have a little blurb on SoundtrackNet about it shortly.
