A Star Is Born (Warner Bros)

The 9th Annual Guild of Music Supervisors Awards announced their winner on Wednesday evening in a ceremony that took place at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.   

A Star Is Born was a double winner, taking the awards for best music supervision for a film budgeted over $25 million, and for best song or recording created for a film for the Oscar-nominated “Shallow.”

Green Book won for film budgeted under $25M, Vox Lux for films under $10M and Eighth Grade for films under $5M.

The event celebrates the highest achievements in music supervision, recognizing exemplary work in 18 categories representing movies, television, games, advertising and trailers.

This Is Us and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel were the television winners for drama and comedy, respectively.

Lukas Nelson, son of legendary crooner Willie Nelson, performed the song “Shallow” from A Star Is Born, for which he co-wrote songs.
