Awards News

It’s been a big day for awards in the Doctor Who world – Big Finish theme composer David Arnold, better known for his work on the Bond movies, has been awarded a fellowship by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He is one of five musicians to receive the award, conceived to mark the 50th anniversary of the Ivor Novello awards.

As has probably been announced elsewhere by now, alternative (BBCi) Ninth Doctor companion Sophie Okenedo has been nominated in the “Actress in a Supporting Role” Oscar category for her performance in the film “Hotel Rwanda”. Meanwhile, John Debney (Paul McGann TV Movie composer) has received a nomination for his score for Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ”.

And what better place to mention that “White Noise” – starring Michael Keaton – is at number seven at the US Box Office, and number 3 in the UK. The film was directed by the TV Movie’s Geoffrey Sax.
