SAN DIEGO (CelebrityAccess) — Music rights organization SESAC hosted its annual Film & Television Composer Awards on Thursday night with Christophe Beck taking top honors for the score for the Disney/Marvel film “Ant-Man & The Wasp.”

The invitation-only gala also honored 40 television composers, including Danny Lux, Gabriel Mann and Devin Powers, for their work on programs such as Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Inspectors, The Resident, and 48 Hours among others.

During the event, SESAC also provided an update on SESAC Scores: The Beck Diversity Project, an initiative that launched last year in partnership with composer Christophe Beck to help foster opportunities for demographically underrepresented composers.

Six events were held over the course of the year in Los Angeles that supported over 350 participants, and the livestream events drew in almost five thousand viewers. These events were hosted by noted figures in the industry, including Beck, John Swihart, and Richard Kraft, among others.

Lastly, SESAC announced plans to help fund Beck’s new endeavor, The Key Change Foundation, which provides grants to support films scored by emerging film composers from underrepresented groups..

SESAC, a music rights organization, hosted its annual Film & Television Composer Awards at the Casa del Mar in Santa Monica, Calif., last night. The invitation-only event was attended by some of the industry’s top executives, composers and publishers.
