NEW YORK, NY - Netflix's 'The Queen’s Gambit,’ which features music supervision by Randall Poster, won big at the Golden Globes this weekend, taking home two wins for Best Television Motion Picture and Best Actress - Television Motion Picture for Anya Taylor-Joy.
Poster also supervised ‘One Night In Miami…’ which was nominated for three Golden Globes awards - Best Song Motion Picture for “Speak Now” sung by Leslie Odom Jr., Best Supporting Actor - Motion Picture for Leslie Odom Jr. and Best Director Motion Picture for Regina King.
Poster’s recent partnership with NYC-based music strategy firm Premier Music Group, where he serves as Creative Director, cements the wide scope of his celebrated music supervision work across film, advertising, and podcasts.
Premier Music Group has had a string of early 2021 successes - Poster music supervised the Questlove directorial debut ‘Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised),’ which won the Documentary Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2021 and received critical acclaim from the New York Times, the LA Times, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and The Guardian. The company also oversaw music supervision on ads for McDonald’s (which featured an epic ‘Carpool Karaoke’-style singalong medley), T-Mobile (two spots Anthony Anderson, Adam Levine, Gwen Stefani, and Blake Shelton), and Frito-Lay (which played on ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas).
