A message was put on the Hollywood in Vienna website this morning, October 12, with the following news:

"John Barry very sadly cannot accept his award in person, as his wife, Laurie, suffered from an acute illness that could not be foreseen and is not allowed to fly via plane.

Bond producer Barbara Broccoli and David Arnold will accept the Max Steiner award in behalf of John Barry.

And John Barry will take part via video connection from NY. James Bond conductor Nicholas Dodd conducts the Barry tribute."
