In this update containing more than 7300 individual entries on the stars of scoring for film and television, Keeping Score presents the credits for the full-bodied, symphonic masterworks from primarily English-language films, though a substantial number of French and Spanish films that have become popular in international markets are also included. The reader or researcher can locate the musical score by searching in a variety of easy ways: under the composer's name, by the title of the film, or by the year of the film's release. Included is a complete collection of composer award list winners of the Oscars, Emmys, Ace Awards, and the Golden Globes. Additionally, the book includes a selective discography of film and television soundtracks and music scores.
