This seems pretty spot on.


"Close Encounters to me is as good a piece of concert music as the 20th century has produced. Everybody fixates on... the Superman fanfare, or Star Wars - Main Theme, or the Raiders March. It's what happens after that, it's not the big popular hook where you go: 'My God John Williams is a genius.' Y'know it's the stuff which is maybe less hooky and less hummable, but is great art." - Hans Zimmer

I don't think The Hobbit will be acknowledged with a Best Score nomination until the third film possibly, but even en the chances are slim.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty looks ripe for good scoring possibilities, could be Theodore Shapiro's big break. And Zimmer could get a nomination for Rush, especially if it does well in other categories.

 

I think JW will have to settle for another nomination this time around, unless The Book Thief really surprises. At this early stage, Hans is looking pretty good to win his second Oscar for Twelve Years a Slave.

The film's gotten exceptional notices out of the Toronto Film Festival, which usually churns out Oscar favorites, and it's being perceived as the awards frontrunner so it does look pretty likely to rack up a lot of those nominations it's predicted for. He's been nominated a lot since The Lion King but hasn't won, just seems like the movie could end up being big enough for him to win. Obviously the score could be less than memorable (for whatever it's worth, some reviews of the film have called his score a cross between Inception and The Thin Red Line) but that matters less often than it should when it comes to these things.

Yeah I'm not too excited about JW's chances.  If he didn't win with Lincoln, I don't know how he's going to win.  That was the perfect storm of a score to a well-recieved film that didn't have any impossible competition.  Unless Book Thief the film ends up being really well recieved, it'll just be a nomination I think.

 

Btw, this will be an important one: while JW beat Alfred Newman's total nominations record in 2011, this one will make him the person with the most "best score (original or adapted)" nominations.  Newman and JW are currently tied with I think 43 nominations each in this category.

Why would Zimmer be nominated? His ghost writers prevent a nomination, no?

They aren't ghost writers, and that's why The Dark Knight was initially disqualified, because their names are on the cue sheets.



It also didn't stop them from nominating Gladiator, Sherlock Holmes, and Inception. In other words, the Academy doesn't give a shit about its own rules one year and then does the next.

Nobody gives a fuck about cue sheets, that's why they are still ghost writers.

 

Still, the point was that Zimmer won't be nominated because the ghost writers' names on the cue sheets.

And no one gives a fuck about your CD cover semantics. They're all credited. No one looks in the booklets guys, that means they're ghost writers!!!

 

I see you still haven't learned to read. Ghost means invisible in this context, i.e. uncredited.

I have a very horrifying feeling that not only will Zimmer get nominated, we will be double nominated for Rush and 12 Years A Slave.

 

And he will win for 12 Years A Slave.

 

I call this the rape and pillage of the art of film music composition.

 

And when Zimmer wins, he will get a standing ovation. And the great maestro has never received a standing ovation. Oh the cruelties of life. I think a mere 5 Oscars are absolutely paltry for such a career.

What if he gets a double nomination & a double win? And gets a standing ovation? And he won't be cut off by the music? And he will gloat as to how he toiled and sweated this score like no other in the history of film scores?

Gravity is the only one of those listed really on my radar
 
I have seen trailers for Hustle, Philips, Banks, and Mitty one time each, and none of those or any other really seem to be getting hyped much yet.  I guess it's early (I know The Butler already came and went)

It's a shame that Geisha wasn't a better film.  That would have been his best chance to win.  It was a different score for Williams, he did the press circuit and peformed with Yo-Yo Ma, and the competition that year was extremely light. 

 

Brokeback won soley on the strength of the acclaim that the film received, and not so much on the baby-ish guitar playing.  So don't think that Zimmer can't win oscar gold with simplistic nonsense on the back of a great film.

Because Ghibli films have generally very high quality, and they never disappoint me.

 

I'm sure I am  not the only one that thinks in this way (wanting something to win before he sees/listens to it) here.

Don't at least half here want John Williams to win, before they even have heard a single note from the score? ;)

I feel the same way about Ghibli.

The very name of Miyazaki means quality. At the very least, the film be good. And The Wind Rises is just so promising, rave reviews, a visually dazzling trailer and a momentous score.

Well, not me! Every year I would love nothing more than to hear every nominated score, and root for the one I personally think is the best one. I am always happy when John Williams wins, obviously, but if I think another score this year is better, than that's the score I think should win.

Same with The Wind Rises. If I see it and love it I'll root for it to win, otherwise I'll root for whatever I've seen that I think is best.

I thought this was pretty standard.

Indiewire expands the list of candidates but places Williams at #6...
 

Here's our take on the best original score race.  Like basically half of all categories, "12 Years a Slave" (Hans Zimmer, also a possibility for "Rush") and "Gravity" (Steven Price) seem like near sure things already, while Randy Newman's score for "Monster's University" seems like a predictable bet to join them. Beyond that? We'll have to wait for "Saving Mr. Banks" (Thomas Newman), "The Monuments Men (Alexandre Desplat, also a possibility for "Philomena") and "The Book Thief" (John Williams, in a rare instance of him working outside of Spielberg/Lucas ville) before we can be too certain.

 

Strong Possibilities From What We've Seen:
1. Steven Price, Gravity
2. Hans Zimmer, 12 Years a Slave

3. Randy Newman, Monster's University

Still To Come, But Lots of Potential
4. Thomas Newman, Saving Mr. Banks
5. Alexandre Desplat, The Monuments Men

6. John Williams, The Book Thief
7. Theodore Shapiro, The Secret Life of Malter Mitty

 

Could Easily Be Major Contenders:
8. Hans Zimmer, Rush
9. Henry Jackman, Captain Phillips
10. Rodrigo Leao, Lee Daniels' The Butler
11. Alexandre Desplat, Philomena
12. Danny Elfman, Dallas Buyers Club

 

Longer Shots, But Who Knows:
13. Howard Shore, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug
14. Johan Johansson, Prisoners
15. Carter Burwell, August: Osage County

True for me and I will say this from personal experience. Everytime John Williams has a score out, it is atleast in Top 3 for me every time if not at No.1. And the years where Williams is nominated and doesn't win, I usually prefer his score to what ends up winning. So even sight unseen, it seems to be that Williams would atleast turn out something that will be worthy of a win.

 

A half assed score from Williams is more accomplished than the career best work of most composers today.

Rush is certainly not good enough to be nominated for best score. Everything else about that film is great though.

The same could be said about a lot of scores that were nominated for best score (or even that won).

Methinks this is an early Oscar campaign:

 

Out of all the questions posted on that page, they choose the oldest, most tired and endlessly asked questions? Don't see the point of that video at all.

 

Wouldn't say Zimmer looks ecstatic to be there either. But doesn't he refuse to allow his scores to be nominated? Sure I read that somewhere.

 

 

These nomination predications are just standard. Is the film likely to be big? Check. Is the score by a composer who is generally seen very favourably? Check.

Rush is certainly not good enough to be nominated for best score.

 

The same could be said about a lot of scores that were nominated for best score (or even that won).

 

Oh I know that but just because it happens doesn't make it right. Skyfall last year just seemed to get a nod because the film did really well but wasn't really good enough to win any of the major acting or directing nominations so they stuck it in for Best Score.

Is this what you're talking about?
