Now up for an honor in musical composition, three big screen titles namely "Casino Royale", "Ice Age: The Meltdown", and "Severance" are all in competition for winning the Best Original Film Score at this year's Ivor Novello Awards, an annual celebration in paying respect to the craft of the songwriter and composer.
British Academy of Composers and Songwriters as the organization holding the event has revealed that David Arnold, John Powell, and Christian Henson are the names submitted into the nomination of the category for "Royale", "Meltdown", and "Severance", respectively. Winners will be announced during the award ceremony that takes place in London on May 24.
Named after Cardiff-born entertainer Ivor Novello, Ivor Novello Awards, also known as The Ivors, were first introduced in 1955 and have since been the only honor given annually to Britain's songwriting and composing talents. Last year's event saw "Pride and Prejudice", "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", and "Evil" each earn a nod in the slot with the latter coming out as the winner.
