Ever since his first major film score, Tim Burton's Pee-Wee's Big Adventure in 1985, Elfman has been among the most gifted and prolific composers in Hollywood history, earning a Grammy for Burton's Batman, an Emmy for Desperate Housewives, and four Oscar nominations. His compositions, including the theme to The Simpsons and scores to most Burton films, are instantly recognizable and often iconic.
THR film critic Todd McCarthy will give the award and host a Q&A with Elfman and Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi.
