'Dragonheart's' awards legacy lives on

Not many people saw the 1996 fantasy film "Dragonheart," which was notable for featuring Dennis Quaid as a knight and Sean Connery as the voice of a talking dragon. But though the film never got a chance to make the awards circuit the year it came out, it lives on in awards shows to this day. Its music, composed by Randy Edelman, is used whenever awards shows want to show up a clip package of great import. In the case of the Emmy Awards, it was the montage for the year in drama, with clips from "Mad Men," "Lost"  and similar non-dragony shows.
