“Barbie” won two awards to lead all films at the 14th annual Guild of Music Supervisors Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles, while “Daisy Jones & the Six” won a pair to lead in the television categories.

Music supervisor George Drakoulias won in the Best Music Supervision for Film Budgeted Over $25 Million category for “Barbie,” while Drakoulias and songwriters Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell won in the Best Song Written and/or Recorded for a Film category for “What Was I Made For?”

Other film winners were “Joy Ride” (Best Music Supervision for Film Budgeted $25 Million and Under), “Theater Camp” (Best Music Supervision for Film Budgeted $10 Million and Under) and a tie between “Chang Can Dunk” and “Totally Killer” for Best Music Supervision for a Non-Theatrically Released Film.

“Daisy Jones” music supervisor Frankie Pine won in the Best Music Supervision – Television Comedy or Musical category, while that limited series also won in the Best Song Written and/or Recorded for Television category for “Look at Us Now (Honeycomb).” “The White Lotus” and “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” also won TV awards.

In the documentary categories, Jonathan Finegold won for “Little Richard: I Am Everything” and Andrea von Foerster won for “Welcome to Wrexham” Season 2.

The trailers for “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “Yellowjackets” and “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” also won awards. “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” won in both of the video game categories.

Eilish and O’Connell’s win for “What Was I Made For?” came from a category that also contained two songs they’re competing against for the Best Original Song Oscar — “I’m Just Ken,” also from “Barbie,” and “It Never Went Away” from “American Symphony.” In the previous eight years that the GMS has presented an award in the song category, its winner has only gone on to take the song Oscar twice.

Sunday’s ceremony also honored the late Robbie Robertson with a performance by Margo Price, Rocco DeLuca and Johnny Shepherd. Robertson was also honored with the posthumous presentation of the Icon Award, while Allan Mason received the Legacy Award.

The show took place at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles.
