Article on Film Scores

Recently, I found an article online, with a list of 115 film scores in contention for the Academy Award nomination of Best Original Score.

It was a long and varied list and I decided to go through and pick ones I think should be given serious consideration.

Here are the ones, narrowed down to a much shorter list of nine. As you can see, it is a mix of the complete list, old favourites like Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard and Howard Shore, mixed with some new faces. All well and truly deserving of some Oscar attention.

Gangster Squad: Steve Jablonsky
The Great Gatsby: Craig Armstrong
The Hobbit - Desolation of Smaug: Howard Shore
The Hunger Games - Catching Fire: James Newton Howard
Man of Steel: Hans Zimmer
The Mortal Instruments - City of Bones: Atli Orvarsson
Rush: Hans Zimmer

Short Term 12: Joel P. West
Star Trek into Darkness: Michael Giacchino.
