    The Last Jedi wasn’t eligible but they gave Williams a dispensation because he’s John Williams. They should have made him eligible for his only good composition from this year; Dear Basketball. Anyway the music branch is flawed, like at the Emmys, they’ll give it to the least special nominee, so probably A Dog’s Purpose.

    Williams’s score for DEAR BASKETBALL is probably his worst in at least a decade. Instantly makes a thin, pseudo-inspiring film turn pompous and self-important. That alone hopefully cuts it out of the final 5 among the shorts. Just terrible. I doubt he’ll get a SW nod though (probably the least memorable score in the franchise).

    Loved seeing Philip Glass there–his work in JANE is wonderful–and maybe it’s too much to hope for that Carter Burwell scores a two-fer (but I’ll still keep my fingers crossed).

    Where the heck is Call Me By Your Name? Was it not eligible for some reason? I honestly thought that Sufjan Stevens was safe for a nod.

    Yeah Star Wars will miss this year, but I’m still mad Rogue One missed. Giacchino crafted an incredible score. Especially the last act!

    It’s not eligible. Sufjan wrote two songs (they were both submitted in Original Song), and the music used throughout is a combination of English/French/Italian 80’s music, along with a few piano pieces (see the tracklist here). I believe Ryuichi Sakamoto composed only one or two original tracks for the film.

    There’s actually no major ineligibilities this year. Even Blade Runner 2049 is eligible despite riffing on Vangelis’s original quite a bit. The only really notable omission is The Greatest Showman which evidently is not another La La Land, if that wasn’t already clear.

    @lovelylovely Thanks for the info. I agree with whoever said that only “Mystery of Love” should have been submitted for Song, since it has a way better chance than “Visions of Gideon” of actually getting nominated. Now, they both could ruin each other’s chances by splitting votes.

    Vote-splitting is usually a bigger problem at the winning stage than at the nomination stage.

    Especially with this year’s lack of disqualifications, this group can be so random and weird that this is one of the tougher categories to predict. I think Desplat and Marianelli are probably safe.

    I think Carter Burwell is finally in the club and had a strong year with a strong contender in Three Billboards, and John Williams usually gets nominated for respected high profile films which both TLJ and The Post are. Hans Zimmer got qualified for both Blade Runner and Dunkirk but people in the branch are probably familiar with the questions around their qualifications and it might break away enough voters in a race as competitive as this.

    They’re also not afraid to go with smaller or less recognized films in this category. They love Thomas Newman more than they love the films they tend to nominate him for, and that might be proven true again with Victoria & Abdul. J. Ralph is notorious for sneaking surprise song nominations from obscure documentaries and is eligible here for Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.

    If Greenwood were eligible in 2007 I think TWBB would have gotten nominated and subsequently won, and he’s a big contender here but it’s not the first time he’s been eligible and hasn’t gotten in. It depends on how much Phantom Thread catches on.

    Get Out is possible here and can be a possible omen of its BP chances.
