Comment Fun

MINDHUNTER (s2 episodes 1-2) 

"I am also a big fan of this show, because of Fincher and the detective work, even if the show skirts very close sometimes to murderer fetish..." - Jono

"I love this show. I binged 7 of the 9 episodes and could have finished but I wanted to savor it a little longer. It's such an engrossing show and beautifully filmed" -Raul

AUGUST 11TH PREDICTIONS

(SCROLL DOWN FOR ADDITIONAL SOUND CATEGORIES)

 

Original Score - Predictions

 

Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker
John Williams
(51 nominations, 5 wins)
Dec 20th

They've only extremely rarely ignored Williams when he was eligible and 5 of his 51 nominations have been for Star Wars pictures. He's now 87 years old, too, and hasn't won in 25 years.

 Little Women

Alexandre Desplat
(10 noms, 2 wins)
Dec 25th

The new John Williams? Usually nominated and he works a lot.

Ford v Ferrarri
Marco Beltrami (2 nominations)
Nov 15th

He was probably close to a nomination last year for A Quiet Place and with 5 pictures this year and 1 buzzy TV series, and one festival honor already lined up, it could be a big year for him.

Pain & Glory
Alberto Iglesias
(3 nominations)
Oct 4th

It's not easy to get nominated for foreign films, but Oscar already knows him and he does do wondrous work for Almodóvar on the regular

 JoJo Rabbit

Michael Giacchino (2 nominations)
Oct 18th

Oscar doesn't quite love him but we think he'll be back for nomination #3 fairly soon. This seems like a good opportunity.

 
Tier 2 - Or maybe these... 

 Avengers Endgame

Alan Silvestri
(2 nominations)
April 26th

We were surprised to see Infinity War on the finalist list last year so perhaps they'll want to celebrate the finale (of sorts) of 11 years of MCU movies?

 

Ad Astra
Max Richter
(never nominated)
May 24th (?)

Sci-fi dramas sometimes wow on the sound level. Seems like it's about his time, right?

Harriet

 

 

Terence Blanchard
(1 nomination)
Release TBA

Once Oscar's most insular branch finally recognizes you, it's much easier to be honored a second time. This should be a fine showcase for him.

 

The Good Liar 

Carter Burwell
(2 nominations)
Nov 15th

It took Oscar so long to honor him but now he's on their radar and working a lot so a win may be only a matter of time. Will this be a contender outside of acting? We shall see.

Gemini Man
Marco Beltrami
(2 nominations)
Oct 4th

He's scoring 5 movies this year so it's tough to say which will be the one to get him attention. Were going with Ford v Ferrari but it could be this instead

Cats
"???" 
Frozen 2
"???" 
The Lion King
"Spirit" 
Rocketman
