Film composer Hildur Guðnadóttir and classical composer Anna Þorvaldsdóttir both have a reason to attend the upcoming Grammy awards in January. Hildur has been nominated for her music in HBO series Chernobyl, while Anna’s album Aequa has been nominated in the category of Best Engineered Album (Classical).
Hildur’s music in Chernobyl has been nominated in the category of Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media. The score, built from recordings of a nuclear power plant, won her an Emmy earlier this year. Her fellow nominees in the category include Ramin Djawadi for Game of Thrones (Season 8), Hans Zimmer for Lion King, and Alan Silvestri for Avengers: Endgame.
Iceland Review spoke with Hildur about her work on both Chernobyl and the Joker film earlier this year.
