October 17, 2022 – Jacquie Joy, an Australian composer, sound designer and music producer has been recognised with two prestigious nominations for her music scores in The Hollywood Music in Media Awards™ (The HMMAs).

The HMMAs are broadly considered within the industry as the main springboard to Emmy and Oscar nominations.

Jacquie Joy’s second nomination is for her score, Diana Title Theme which has been nominated in the Dramatic/Crime category. The title track is from a web series called Diana, filmed in Brisbane, Australia and directed by Peter Koevari.

“It also feels quite surreal to be nominated alongside distinguished and talented composers such as my composing hero, Ronit Kirchman who’s music I love in The Sinner (Netflix) and
Evil Eye (Amazon Prime),” she added.
