Blubbering in the theater.  This moment in Coco perfectly encapsulated the feeling of the film. It is a beautiful moment with a beautiful song.


TV Song

Fewer choices here of course, but Once Upon a Time did a musical episode that was fantastic.  My favorite song from that episode was performed by Captain Hook called “Revenge is Gonna Be Mine.”


Best Use of Music in a Movie: Baby Driver.  The soundtrack for Baby Driver felt like a character all its own in this movie.  Runners-Up:  Thor: Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Best Use of Music in a TV Show:  Twin Peaks.  Every idode ended at the Roadhouse where you saw big name stars performing music.  It was always a surreal feeling that fit exactly with Twin Peaks.  Runners-Up:  Once Upon a Time, Riverdale

Best Movie Score:  Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  Star Wars always brings epic scores thanks to EYG Hall of Famer John Williams.  Runners-Up:  Blade Runner 2049, Coco, War for the Planet of the Apes
