Perhaps I missed the correct answer which is 1982.

 

 

E.T.

STTWoK,

Gandhi

Poltergeist.

Conan the Barbarian  

The Thing 

Blade Runner

Victor Victoria 

Sophie's Choice.

Every great composer was on the top of his game that year.

My list was slightly better than Richard's. Richard you forgot there was another Oscar winner for Best Original Song Score, the utterly brilliant Victor/VIctoria. It remains one of my all time favorite films. John Williams mentor Henry Mancini's brilliant song score with friend and collaborator Leslie Briscusse shared the spotlight with Williams great work.

2005 was ridiculous:

 

Revenge of the Sith

Memoirs of a Geisha

Munich

War of the Worlds

Sahara

Doom

A History of Violence

Kingdom of Heaven

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

The Roost

The Chumscrubber

King Kong

Syriana

Hostage

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

Wolf Creek

 

I'm probably even leaving something out.

Gentlemen, let me propose another answer:

1963:

Cheryomushki - Dmitri Shostakovich

Cleopatra - Alex North

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World - Ernest Gold

55 Days At Peking - Dmitri Tiomkin

The List of Adrian Messenger - Jerry Goldsmith

Jason and the Argonauts - Bernard Herrmann

Sodom and Gomorrah - Miklós Rózsa

The Sword in the Stone - George Bruns

Il Gattopardo - Nino Rota

The Pink Panther - Henry Mancini

From Russia With Love - John Barry

The Great Escape - Elmer Bernstein

 

One could storm the gates of hell with scores like these
