  1. It's music made to be noticed so it's either gonna hit your ears as majestic as a peacock, or as hideous (garish, gaudy, lurid...) as a peacock. It's John Williams so better than 50% odds it'll be majestic but what's a sarcastic English thespian to do with a Harry Potter soundtrack, really. The funniest and probably most unsurprising thing reading these diary entries is how blase he was about the HP experience in general. "Cameras rehearse before actors" sounds about right. I'm glad he stuck it out. I love picturing him and Maggie Smith cracking up as he attempts his "unlearnable" speech in DD's office in GOF. I assume he's referring to "Headmaster, I, too, find it difficult to believe this mere coincidence. However, if we are to truly discover the meaning of these events, perhaps we should, for the time being, let them unfold."
  2. A new "reason behind John Williams's retirement" theory: Spielberg insisted on being Beard Guy 1
  3. Honestly at this point I'm not against just locking Fabelmans threads until the thing is out, Christ almighty
  4. Not like I'm holding my breath either but just knowing awards patterns, there is a more obvious narrative than usual. I think if he were to win, it would depend a lot on where Fabelmans as a movie falls in their favor compared to the other films nominated in score, as always.
  5. Yeah, the upload was just "Marvel Studios' Avengers - Official Trailer" Could be a fun way to do it.
  6. Hildur Guonadottir has two Oscar contenders, Women Talking and Tar. Idk about the score for the former, but the latter in particular has kind of a juicy music-based narrative where it's about a female conductor, so it could go her way again. Justin Hurwitz for Babylon is also a possible nominee/winner, he likes to go big and the movie will be very showy, could be one of those movies that scoops up a lot of the tech awards by default. The advantage for JW's chances is they've both also already won recently, and I do think he has kind of the most sentimental awards narrative this year. People are aware that he just turned 90 and that he's considering retirement from movies. A lot of people mentioning this might be his last Spielberg score in reviews and social media, and it being a Spielberg autobiography, people might feel like giving it to him on that basis. The knocks against it are that it seems like the movie is a bit lightweight and also that there isn't really a ton of Williams score in it, and he keeps it pretty mellow. But then again they give light movies Oscars plenty and the musical ignorance of AMPAS might finally work to his favor if there's a lot of classical piano in it lmao.
  7. I feel like Fellini was always going back to that. Amarcord too.
  8. For popular Hollywood cinema, Almost Famous is Cameron Crowe self-mythologizing in a similar way. "How I got my start and the source of all my trauma" lol
  9. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself tbh
  10. He doesn't comment on the score specifically but he does say "the sequence in which Sammy discovers his mom’s crime of the heart is astonishing for its wordless virtuosity; it’s a self-contained fugue of music, faces, and light". Obviously we don't know if it's score or source music but I'm guessing a pivotal character moment like that would be Williams.
  11. Anything else you can say about the score that you have on good authority?
