Irish animated feature Wolfwalkers has been nominated for a Hollywood Music in Media Award for Best Original Score while Irish composer Eímear Noone is nominated for Best Original Song ‘Stand for Hope - When I Stand with You’ from the Irish animated film Two By Two: Overboard!.

The Irish-set romantic comedy Wild Mountain Thyme has also been nominated in the Best Original Song - Independent Film category, with the title I'll Be Singing, performed by Sinéad O’Connor.  The film is also nominated in Best Original Score - Feature Film category which was composed by UK’s Amelia Warner and produced by Irish composer Brian Byrne.

The widely acclaimed Wolfwalkers, which is tipped for an Oscar nod in 2021, is the latest offering from the already four-time Oscar-nominated Kilkenny studio Cartoon Saloon. The feature animation is being acknowledged for its superb score, which was written by French composer Bruno Coulais in collaboration with Irish musicians and folk group Kila.  Wolfwalkers faces competition in its category from The Croods: A New AgeOnwardShaun The Sheep: Farmageddon, and Soul at the awards. 

The film Two By Two: Overboard! is co-produced by Galway-based Irish animation company Moetion Films, which is headed by producer Moe Honan.  Stand for Hope - When I Stand with You was written by Noone and performed by Irish singer Sibéal (Ní Chasaide).  The original song is against Carried Me With You from OnwardFeel the Thunder from The Croods: A New AgeFree from The One And Only IvanJust Sing from Trolls World Tour; and Rocket to the Moon from Over The Moon in the Best Original Song - Animated Film category.

Wild Mountain Thyme, which has garnered much discussion around its delivery of Irish accents, has clearly hit the right mark for its musical delivery and will compete in Original Score – Independent film alongside The 24th, Ammonite, The Glorias, Minari, and Shirley, while Sinead O’Connor’s performance of I’ll Be Singing will compete against: Everybody Cries performed by Rita Wilson, Rain Song performed by Yeri Han, and Staring at a Mountain performed by Sharon Van Etten.

Eímer Noone’s nomination brings further recognition to her following international acclaim in 2020 when she became the first woman to conduct the live orchestra for the annual Oscars ceremony in Hollywood back in February 2020. She is also known for her award-winning composing work on video game music.
