About Hollywood Music Awards
The Hollywood Music Awards (HMA) is the only red carpet style event in the world that celebrates music in visual mediums. Honoring a variety of music styles, from traditional to experimental, the awards show will give equal attention to both signed and unsigned music artists for their music recordings. Separate categories will focus on artists whose music is used in films, television, video games, commercial advertisements, movie trailers, web-based videos and other new media. We'll also spotlight those responsible for choosing and placing music in those mediums, including music supervisors, licensers, directors, publishers and producers. In addition, there will be a special Lifetime Achievement Award and Career Achievement Award presented to iconic individuals for musical contributions to the art of film, television and other forms of media. Live music performances and celebrity appearances will highlight the star-studded gala. HMA will host the show once a year in Hollywood, California. Best of all, it's open to any and all music artists, because we believe it's not "who you are," but rather "what you are."
"We just decided to attend 2008 Hollywood Music Awards in LA this fall, as apart of our US trip. If you will be around LA, hope you can join us!" - Leisei & Michael of the Michael White Quintet
