See The Full List Of Winners Below

The 2017 Screen Music Awards honoured some of our nation’s best film and television composers last night, awarding recognition to Briggs, Missy Higgins, and more for their exceptional work in creating music for screen.

Briggs took home the award for Best TV Theme with ‘Here’ (featuring Caiti Baker), composed with Charlton Hill and Justin Shave for Fox League Super Saturday, with Briggs’ noting the importance of the track to Indigenous NRL players.

 

 “The song reflects the journey of the Indigenous players who give so much excitement and leadership to the sport and community week in and week out, not just the specific Indigenous round,” he said.

 

 

Missy Higgins picked up Best Original Song Composed for the Screen with ‘Torchlight’ written for Australian film, Don’t Tell. The accolade is the first Screen Music Award Higgins has won.

 

Other notable winners include Antony Partos, who took out Feature Film Score of the Year for Jasper Jones, Elliot Wheeler for Best Music for a Television Series or Serial with The Get Down, and a win for Bryony Marks in the category of Best Music for a Mini-Series or Telemovie with the ABC’s popular four-part mini-series, Barracuda.
