Awards

Robbie Robertson Wins Posthumous Icon Award at 2024 Guild of Music Supervisors Awards

Robbie Robertson was posthumously honored with the Icon Award. Allan Mason won the Legacy Award.

The Barbie ballad “What Was I Made For?” by Billie Eilish and Finneas won best song written and/or recorded for a film at the 2024 Guild of Music Supervisors Awards, which were held at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 3). The awards, now in their 14th year, celebrate the craft of music supervision in film, television, documentaries, advertising, trailers and video games.

“What Was I Made For?” is the front-runner to win the Oscar for best original song on March 10. If it does, it will be the third GMS winner to go on to win the Oscar, following “City of Stars” from La La Land and “Shallow” from A Star Is Born.
