He has received Academy Award nominations for Best Original Score for Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight (2016) and If Beale Street Could Talk (2018), and Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up (2021). He also scored McKay’s The Big Short (2015), and Vice (2018). He is also known for scoring Battle of the Sexes (2017), Cruella (2021), and She Said (2022).
The HBO original series Succession (2018–2023) marked Britell’s entry into television. Britell scored all four seasons, earning the Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music in 2019.
His score for the second and third season in Succession each earned Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series nominations in 2020 and 2022.
His score for The Underground Railroad was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited or Anthology Series, Movie or Special in 2021.
His works, as described by Soraya McDonald of Film Comment, “seem to organically straddle accessibility and sophistication in a way that goes beyond the typical programming of a big-city pops orchestra…That might have something to do with the fact that Britell has long had one foot in the world of hip-hop and another in the world of classical music.”
Nicholas Britell is a Steinway Artist and a Creative Associate of the Juilliard School.
In December 2018, it was announced that Britell would be a part of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s newly formed creative collective “brain trust” as Salonen takes the reins as music director of the San Francisco Symphony.
