The 3rd (?) Annual JWFan Awards


Recommended Posts

David's poll about the Oscar noms reminded me of this semi-tradition that was started up a few years back.

During this round, you, the voters, will pick the nominees which will then be voted on later.

I remember there being some issue with incorporating TV and video games, so I will create separate categories, albeit with less nominee slots to make it easier to fill out.

Film...

Pick your 5 favorite film scores of the year for this category. The 5 scores with the most votes will be nominated.

Television...

Pick your 3 favorite TV scores of the year for this category. This category represents the show's season as a whole, so no votes for particular episodes. I will accept TV movies, if that's what you feel is best. I know a lot of people here love Sherlock.

Video games...

Pick your 3 favorite VG scores of the year for this category. Anything goes as long as it's a video game.

The Wolfman by Danny Elfman

The Ghost Writer by Alexandre Desplat

Creation by Christopher Young

How To Train Your Dragon by John Powell

Parnassus would have been on that list (instead of Dragon), but it's pretty much a 2009 film. Only the album was released in January 2010. So I'm not sure how to count that...

Television:

Lost: Season 6 by Michael Giacchino

Caprica by Bear McCreary

And I don't remember anything else...

Video Games...

(nothing of great interest here)

TV: nothing other than Sherlock and Lost leapt out at me.

Films:

How to Train Your Dragon

The Wolfman

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

I thought those 3 were outstanding efforts - anything else I could list is either not completely original, or has some flaws that makes me not consider the composer at the top of their game for that score.

Film scores:

The Ghost Writer

The King's Speech

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The Special Relationship (this is a TV movie so I put it here; Sherlock is a TV series)

TV series scores:

Sherlock

Lost: Season 6: The Last Episodes

Human Target

I wanted to give honorable mention to the Chandos Christopher Gunning recording; I suppose I couldn't put that in there somewhere.

A composer doesn't have to be at the top of their game. That kinda defeats the purpose of nominations. If those three were your favorites, what other two would you like the most after?

Sadly I haven't seen nearly as many 2010 films as I would have liked to, in fact the only ones I saw are:

Youth In Revolt

Shutter Island

How To Train Your Dragon

Date Night

Kick-Ass

Iron Man 2

Toy Story 3

Predators

Inception

The Other Guys

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World

Machete

The Town

The Social Network

Harry Potter 7

Black Swan

I guess my top 5 would be:

1. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

2. Machete

3. Kick-Ass

4. Toy Story 3

5. Youth In Revolt

I really need to see The Ghost Writer, Winter's Bone, The Kids Are All Right, Let Me In, The King's Speech, The Fighter, and True Grit

As for scores?

Toy Story 3 and How To Train Your Dragon are the only ones I remember. I guess Kick-Ass was decent too.
