I spent... way longer than I should have, thinking it was a cat-shaped trophy...

Every cue of The Rise of Skywalker is better than Portals. 

*checks the other winners*

 

FILM COMPOSER OF THE YEAR

• BEAR McCREARY

 

Broxton probably had a hand that, he loved McCreary's (quite overrated) Godzilla score.

 

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR A DRAMA FILM

• LITTLE WOMEN, music by Alexandre Desplat

 

Really?

 

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR A COMEDY FILM

• JOJO RABBIT, music by Michael Giacchino

 

REALLY?!

 

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR TELEVISION

• CHERNOBYL, music by Hildur Guðnadóttir

 

REALLY?!?

 

Also, with all due respect for Williams, this year's Film Music Composition of the year should've come to Silvestri's Portals.

How is that exactly when he only has one vote?

I watched this show and was surprised of Johnnys SW wins. And I almost stop watching during the composer of the year part, McCreary's music is probably closest what I hate most in film music.

I can get behind Powell, Price and Newman winning. Our Planet is an impressive achivement (for which I was delighted to discover that the complete score was released) and while 1917 is a bit of a 'works better in the film' score in places, it has a number of absolute stunner tracks in there.

 

My score of the year is easily HTTYD. I just don't think TROS matches Powell's use of themes, orchestration, and consistent quality.

 

Little Women.... still don't get it. And I pay little attention to Giacchino these days.

Will JW get any physical trophies?

 

The winners usually receive a framed certificate; there have been a number of them that received it from Jon Broxton, Craig Lysy etc. in person (there should be photos of those occasions on the IFMCA website/Facebook). But I doubt Williams' representation will play ball in allowing them access to THE JW™.

Will he even care? (I'm not being glib on purpose, but I doubt this registers with him at all. I mean, look at this actual footage from this year's Grammy Ceremony where he won his nth Grammy):
