HEARTBEAT OF A MOVIE proudly presents all the nominations for the 2016 HOAM Awards. Before we start, here is some general information first:

Each year, HEARTBEAT OF A MOVIE will present the so-called “HOAM Awards” whose aim is to give recognition to the composers who have written the best scores of the last year. As such, it does also represent a retroperspective of what has happened in the film music scene in the past twelve months by looking back at the greatest achievements and most memorable moments one could have experienced in cinemas and while listening to the latest soundtrack releases.

In total, there are thirteen different categories in which a score or a film composer can be nominated, each category comprising nominations up to a maximum of five nominations (except “Best Cue of the Year” – 10 nominations).
