The 26th Annual Sammy Film Music Awards were recently announced. For a score or song to be eligible, it must have been released on CD during 2013. Though not eligible in the traditional categories, "Alone Yet Not Alone" (music by Bruce Broughton and lyrics by Dennis Spiegel) received a note of Special Merit. Hall selected the song as it was "better than any of the four Oscar-nominated songs" and referred to it as "unjustly disqualified." The categories and winners are as follows:
Best New Film Song

Robert Townson and Rick Eldridge, Album Producers
Special Preservation Award: Best Album Producer
Bruce Kimmel, Kritzerland
