    The nominees are:
    Joker, Hildur Guðnadóttir
    1917, Thomas Newman
    Little Women, Alexandre Desplat
    Marriage Story, Randy Newman
    Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, John Williams

    With a strong list of nominees, it must be said that Thomas Newman is now on his 15th nomination without a win. Not only is he overdue, but his score for the Best Picture frontrunner is exceptionally poetic, profound and moving. It really starts out subtle, then hits you towards the end. And I thought he was our winner…until Joker’s Hildur Guðnadóttir won the Golden Globe, and won an Emmy for HBO’s hit series Chernobyl. Like Newman, Guðnadóttir is able to compose music that showcases the emotional turmoils of main character Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) and many experts have now switched their predictions for her to cap the prize Sunday, February 9th.

    There are also three existing winners here. Both Randy Newman and Alexandre Desplat have won two (2) apiece, and John Williams has five (5) – but also on his 52nd nomination! That’s no typo (I hope). 52 nominated scores. He’s 87. This could be his last go. Will voters get sentimental? Or is Little Women’s popularity and gentle melody going to sail away? I preferred Thomas Newman’s own original score better for the 1994 version of the Civil War feminist saga. And Randy Newman does nothing new for Marriage Story– expect perhaps distract the storyline, which was something I found evident throughout the film.

    If you’re betting the high tables, Joker probably has this. But I am keen on thinking voters will go with Thomas Newman’s mesmerizing score to tag along with the sweep that’s bound to happen with Sam Mende’s World War I showcase. And don’t always trust the Globe winners. Scores like All is Lost (2013) from Alex Ebert, or last year’s First Man (Justin Hurwitz) weren’t even Oscar nominees.

    Who is your pick? Does Newman have a shot to finally win? Or will the revolutionary Hildur Guðnadóttir take to the podium, becoming only the 4th woman to be win in this category

    Little angels, I found 1917’s score truly awful and noisy. I wanted to take my ears off. It ruined the whole thing, which had very good technical achievements such as the direction and, of course, the magnificent cinematography. But its score was terrible.

    Hildur Gudonadottir is winning. And Newman is in his 15th nomination, not the 14th.

    1917’s score was great, but Joker’s blew me away with how phenomenal it was. Hildur will easily take the momentum she got from Golden Globes and Critic’s Choice (only First Man won both but lost the Oscar, and that film wasn’t even nominated). Sadly Newman will just have to wait another day.

    Damn I might have to stick to Joker then.

    Thanks for the fact check!

    I mean, 1917 could still win. But Joker’s seems to have this one pretty solidly in the bag. Hildur will likely win at BAFTA too, since it got so many nominations there (it’d be weird if they only awarded Phoenix).

    This is one of those categories I might have to use logic vs my Passion haha. I also enter multiple contests because of this reason, so I can atleast spread out categories I am in the air about.

    You make a good point about Joker only winning one. It’s bound to win more.

    I also have Joker winning Makeup for the same reason. 2 wins feels too low for a film with 11 nominations. In the last 35 years only one film (Lincoln) has earned 11+ nominations and won just 2 of them. 3 feels just right, especially since that’s the same amount of wins Black Panther got last year.

    1917 is the stronger film and if it does sweep techs I don’t see why Newman has a 0% chance lol. If he takes BAFTA I’m predicting him.

    I’m predicting him. I dont really care about stats. 1917 could possibly win BP. It can easily carry score along with it’s sweep in techs.

    I am predicting 1917 will win but Joker could very well take it too. I honestly can’t remember the Joker score at all – I preferred the score to Ford v Ferrari, Downton Abbey, Marriage Story, Little Women and especially 1917. I am thinking there will be a sweep (7 Oscars) for 1917 and Thomas Newman will win as a result.
