2021 Society of Composers and Lyricists award winners announced

Encanto, Society of Composers and Lyricists, Jared Bush, Byron Howard, Charise Castro Smith

The latest film industry guild to announce its 2021 award winners is the Society of Composers and Lyricists, and they've picked a few surprise victors. Across two categories for film scores, they've chosen to honour Germaine Franco for Encanto and Daniel Hart for The Green Knight. While both deserving winners, they might not have been everyone's #1 prediction to win here, as both faced very strong competition from scores like Hans Zimmer's for Dune and Jonny Greenwood's for both The Power of the Dog and Spencer. You can remind yourself of the SCL's nominations for the year at this link.
