an honorary for David Lynch 

"All Lynch [movies] are sacred to me. I still remember going to the theater not long after I first moved to Los Angeles to see this, wondering who this unknown actress was in the lead, and coming out dazed and amazed.- Jordan

"I agree that the overused term 'masterpiece' can be applied properly to this film. It's amazing. Such a sweet balance between compassion and horror, between Hollywood dreams and Hollywood nightmares, between serious fun and serious tragedy. It is a major achievement." -Edward

Nicholas Britell
(2nd nomination)

(10th nom | 2 wins)

POLL

 

 

WHO WILL WIN?

If voters get lazy they might check Mary Poppins Returns because HEY, IT'S A MUSICAL. This is a strong lineup but for one galling omission though. We're guessing Black Panther might eke this one out, though.

 

WHO SHOULD WIN?

We're partial to Isle of Dogs but a lot of people want If Beale Street Could Talk to win and that's impressive, too.

 

WHO WAS LEFT OUT?

There were 15 finalists for Best Original Score. The 10 that missed nominations were Annihilation - Geoff Barrow & Ben Salisbury, Avengers: Infinity War - Alan Silvestri, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs - Carter Burwell, Crazy Rich Asians - Brian Tyler, Death of Stalin - Christopher Willis, Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald - James Newton Howard, First Man - Justin Hurwitz, A Quiet Place - Marco Beltrami, Ready Player One - Alan Silvestri, and Vice - Nicholas Britell

The snub of First Man, which won both the Globe and the Critics Choice awards is, while not shocking because the music branch picks can be volatile, upsetting given the strength of that score. It might have won had it been nominated!
