Best Original Score
Classically trained from an early age, Henry combines his expertise in classical music with his experience in dance/club music and his innovative production of Electronica. Jackman’s recent film scores span a wide range of genres, from action films to period dramas to family films, including: Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain Phillips, Wreck-It Ralph, This is the End and Winnie The Pooh.
Jackman began composing his first symphony at age six. He went on to study classical music at St. Paul’s, Eton College and Oxford University. As a teenager, he became influenced by the underground rave scene, and began producing chart-topping dance remixes.
Over the next few years, Jackman built a successful career in the recording industry co-writing, mixing, producing, and/or programming with major artists including Seal, Art of Noise, and Coolio. In 2006, Jackman garnered the attention of Hans Zimmer and John Powell, who hired Jackman to compose additional music for films including The Dark Knight and Kung Fu Panda. Henry Jackman’s first major solo scoring gig was Monsters and Aliens in 2009.

For “Meet the Robinsons,” Hall was elevated to head of story.

Roy Conli joined Walt Disney Animation Studios in 1993, and after assembling all the creative elements for “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and launching the project, he relocated to France to oversee the contributions of the Paris-based animation team over the two-year production schedule. Upon completion of the film, he remained in France and guided production on the animated films “Hercules” and “Tarzan.” Conli returned to the studio in Burbank to produce “Treasure Planet.” He served as producer of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 50th animated film “Tangled,” and he’s part of the executive leadership team for WDAS.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Conli studied theater at San Francisco’s prestigious American Conservancy Theater (ACT). A chance meeting with a group of creative talents from the Pasadena Playhouse led Conli to a position with the legendary theater and, ultimately, a four-year stint as director of operations. In that role, he initiated a restoration of the neglected venue, contributed his talents as production manager and guided the theater to its official reopening in 1983.
Conli subsequently moved to Boston where he continued his education at Boston University and eventually earned an M.F.A. After graduation, he served as associate producer for the Camden Shakespeare Festival in Maine. In 1989 Conli joined the production team at the Mark Taper Forum, the leading regional theater in Los Angeles. Over the next four years he managed all special projects and new play development for the Taper, where he helped launch premieres of such award-winning plays as “Angels in America,” “Jelly’s Last Jam” and “The Kentucky Cycle.”
