Composer Hans Zimmer will receive the 2018 Max Steiner Award at the annual Hollywood in Vienna concert gala. The event is scheduled for Oct. 19 at the Konzerthaus in the Austrian capital, Hollywood in Vienna founder and CEO Sandra Tomek announced.

"Hans Zimmer has had a close connection to Vienna for some time now," Tomek said, citing such recent recording projects as "The Crown," "Blue Planet II" and "Inferno," all recorded at Vienna's new Synchron Stage. "For a city so rich in music history, it is only fitting to give this award, named after the great Max Steiner, to this exceptional and multi-talented composer. Zimmer is an 11-time Oscar nominee, most recently for "Dunkirk." He won the Academy Award for best original score in 1994 for "The Lion King." He is also a three-time Grammy winner and two-time Golden Globe winner. The event will be broadcast internationally to more than 35 countries, and later be released on Blu-Ray.
