THE BIG WRAP UP!
Get the info no other Awards give you!


Who won by how much?  What were those voters thinking?  How close did my pick come to winning?  This and many more questions are answered in this year's BIG WRAP UP!

The 2006 Cue Awards!

Welcome back to the 2006 Cue Awards where we recognize the best (and not-so-best) in soundtracks from last year.  2006 proved to be another year filled with soundtrack-cheers, but it wasn't without a few soundtrack-jeers. Nearly all of the award categories from 2005 have returned, but an exciting new category ha been added this year:  MOST MEMORABLE THEME.  Whether its from television, a video game, indy or feature film, that theme that delightfully played in our heads over and over will be honored.  So in the 20 award categories who will win the Tracksounds CUE awards for 2006?  Over the next two-weeks one or two Cue winners will be announced each day right here!  So click-back and relax and enjoy the presentations.


2006 Cue Award Nominees

Nominees were submitted by the Tracksounds staff and then each rated on a 1 to 10 scale (10 being the most deserving of the award).  The nominee with highest total rating will be awarded the Cue for that category.  In the event of a two-way-tie, a sudden-death vote is taken to determine a solitary winner.
