  Composer and Performance Awards Awards  
 

Of course, it goes without saying.  Without the men and women who compose and perform our favorite music, we'd still be hearing the clickity-clack of the film projectors behind us as our only audible tie to the films, shows or games we enjoy.  Each year it seems one composer comes "out of nowhere" to make a name for themselves, while another sets themselves apart due the volume of quality work or even one seminal project.  Here we also give out Cue Awards to the best orchestral and solo performances found in film, television or game music.
