  1. I think you're all overthinking it. Like all Oscar categories, it's not really "Best Score," it's "Most Score." They give it to the score that's most prominent. There are many moments in Joker where the score is basically the only thing you hear in the mix. It carries a lot of scenes. I personally don't think the score is very good, but it is incredibly prominent. I'd almost even call it obnoxious in its use. But they love that stuff. It's super sad music for the sad clown movie. It'll win for that reason alone. I'd wager the majority of voters have no idea it was composed by a woman, and that won't factor much into their voting at all. The politics of Oscar choices are incredibly overstated. Year after year we end up with majority white and male nominees and winners. Most of the voters are old white dudes who don't care about diversity. It's a misconception that they're always trying to be progressive.
  2. You could probably add that to the top post. Shouldn't be too hard to do. As is, the way you worded it in that post just makes it seem like it's the same info posted in the thread but in a different format for those who can't see it.
  3. Oh ha, I totally missed that post. Have you been trying to match cue titles to all the OST/FYC tracks?
  4. I think "Prologue" on the OST must be 1M02 "The Ninth Beginning" and 1M08 "Approaching the Nursery." In the spreadsheet, 1M02 is :40 and has :06 of Kylo's theme. If you look at 1:26 in the OST prologue, there seems to be a potential edit point around 40 seconds later (2:06), right after a 6 second rendition of Kylo's theme (1:56-2:02). The next cue on the spreadsheet is 2:02 of 1M08 Approaching the Nursery. It seems possible JW edited these two cues together on the OST because of their placement in the November cut. This 2:02 does not include any old thematic material, but the track does have about 20 seconds of the Emperor's theme here This can be found on the spreadsheet on number 93, which is marked as 1M08 Approaching the Nursery, where they note :18 of the Emperor's theme. After the Emperor's theme on the track, you can hear a string part that ended up getting used when Rey tells Finn about her vision, after Chewie's "death": Again this is noted on the spreadsheet (37) as 1M08 Approaching the Nursery.
  5. Probably tracked though. Only plays for :47, :11 of which are Rey's theme. Hard to imagine we'd get a 47 second scene of Kylo meeting the Emperor right before he attacks Rey on Pasaana.
  6. Where are we getting the idea that Kylo doesn't meet the Emperor until later in the film in this cut? I'm not seeing that on the spreadsheet.
  7. Here's a question, how much was changed between the making of this list and the final film? For example, the list says there duration of total music in the film is 2:03:56. I'm I'm not mistaken, the final film has about 117 minutes. I wonder where those 7 minutes went.
  8. Interesting. I ask because I read an interview with the editor of the film who mentioned that the scene of Rey meditating was added in reshoots. So just wondering if that might have affected its cue numbering.
  9. Well sure but I meant more like maybe some of it was originally written for reel one while some of it was originally written for reel six or whatever, as opposed to it being say three different cues that were all originally scored for Rey's trip to Exegol or something.
  10. Oh duh. What a mess. Regarding Journey to Exegol, is it possible the track on the OST is actually more than one cue edited together? I have a dumb person question about cues. I know the first number is the reel, but is there a strict rhyme or reason to the second number? Like, is it always the case that something like 1m08 is the scene right before 1m09? What happens if a scene is inserted into the first reel and Williams writes a new cue for it, what sort of number does it get? I wonder because I know some of these scenes were added in reshoots.
  11. Is it possible though that cues were being used for things other than what they were originally scored (and titled) for? That could confuse things.
  12. Lot of things to observe here. The first that I'm noticing is that Peace and Purpose isn't listed as tracked, so the version of the film at this point still had Williams's original music for that scene (8M07 Big Ship Blows Up?).
  13. Too bad Ren wasn't on TROS... Also, unlike the other two films in the trilogy, TROS missed the Sound Mixing Oscar nomination. Deservedly.
  14. I don't care who it is, as long as Zimmer works the song's melody into the score as a recurring theme.
