I am a weird in my choice of music. You see, I listen only to original scores…no pop, rock, metal, rap or anything else, ONLY film scores. That is just the music that I love.
I have over 10,000 film tracks in my PC and can’t help but wander how some of these scores were not nominated for an Oscar. There are some that are out of this word and are now iconic, yet the music branch did not nominate them.
Here are some examples of snubs that are IMO criminal:
John Williams for Hook and Jurassic Park
Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard for The Dark Knight
Danny Elfman for Batman Returns
Thomas Newman for The Green Mile
These are criminal snubs for me.
Do you have any to add?June 11, 2021 at 6:36 am #1204296237
First Man by Justin Hurwitz, should be the biggest snub of the past decadeJune 11, 2021 at 6:38 am #1204296243
Requiem for a Dream and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)
Also, how was Jurassic Park snubbed?June 11, 2021 at 7:30 am #1204296286
Mica levi for Under the Skin. They should have won by a landslide.June 11, 2021 at 7:40 am #1204296299
The Harry Potter movie scores are criminally underrated.
First of all, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by John Williams should have won Best Music Score at the 2004 Oscar.
Secondly, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by John Williams, Harry Potter and the Hald-Blood Prince by Nicholas Hooper and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 AND Part 2 by Alexandre Desplat should have been nominated for the Oscar for Best Music Score in 2002, 2009, 2010 and 2011.June 11, 2021 at 7:53 am #1204296320
These are the following movie scores that I could think of off the top of my head that I thought deserved Oscar nominations:
Back to the Future
The Land Before Time
Rebecca (2020)June 11, 2021 at 8:22 am #1204296346
I am too lazy at the moment so I will just name the two incredibly obvious picks from the last few years:
First Man and TenetJune 11, 2021 at 8:59 am #1204296398
Tenet had easily the best and most memorable score of 2020. That snub was a bad joke.
