Last February, Bear McCreary was nominated and won several awards for his Rings of Power score from the International Film Music Critics Association. McCreary won for Composer of the Year, and Best Original Score for Television. He also won Score of the Year, over fellow nominees John Williams and Michael Giacchino. It was the first and only TV score to not only be nominated, but to win over the nominated film scores in this category.
Next up, the 75th Primetime Emmy Award nominations will be announced on July 12. Prime Video has been campaigning hard for Rings of Power, which is likely to receive recognition in various craft and music categories.
