Original GoldSpirit
GoldSpirit Trophy

The GoldSpirit Awards, yearly granted through the website BSOSpirit, are devoted to soundtracks and film music fans.

BSOSpirit was released on 2001, as a Spanish website relating soundtracks and film music. Attempting to emphasize and recognize the role of the music in movies (contrary to other awards), since 2002, visitors can vote for their favorite scores and composers of the last year for the GoldSpirit Awards.

The name GoldSpirit comes from the contraction of Goldsmith (for the late composer Jerry Goldsmith, an homage to his figure) and Spirit (for BSOSpirit). BSO stands for Banda Sonora Original (in English, Original Soundtrack, OST).
