Firstly, do we already have a thread for this? I don’t usually post in movies so I have no idea.
I’m really happy that this is a category at the Emmys now, and even though I can’t see it happening I think it would a great idea at the Oscars too because:
1) It could help with one of the many confusing rules around Score submissions (something like Birdman that was ineligible because of preexisting compositions being used could submit here too or instead).
2) It could help reduce the tendency among the music categories to highlight solely animation and musicals, like in the 90s, or even last year when La La Land sleepwalked to wins.
3) It would give filmmakers who favour soundtracks over scores a chance to get recognition.
It would also be interesting to see, like at the Emmys, whether the nominees skew more towards films that perform well overall, or are music-centric.
In terms of this year, I was thinking of movies like Baby Driver or Guardians of the Galaxy 2 that don’t seem likely to do well anywhere else in the Oscar race. I’d also be curious to see what people think would’ve been nominated or won in other years.
Again, my bad if there’s already a thread on this.August 21, 2017 at 6:49 pm #1202191292
Baby Driver would easily win and GotG is the easy runner up.August 21, 2017 at 8:11 pm #1202191318
That’s what I think too, and maybe there aren’t enough contenders for this to be a viable option for the Oscars yet, but ‘Academy Award winner Edgar Wright’ would be a pretty great scenarioAugust 31, 2018 at 3:47 pm #1202620867

The only thing is that I assume the Music Supervisor (and maybe like the Soundtrack Producer and/or Music Editor, idk) would be nominated. I doubt they would nominate the director, no matter how much input they may provide for choosing songs.February 21, 2019 at 11:58 pm #1202784618
This year’s guilds winners were:
Films Budgeted Over $25 Million
Julia Michels and Julianne Jordan – A Star is Born (WINNER)
Dave Jordan – Black Panther
Becky Bentham – Bohemian Rhapsody
Michael Higham and Paul Gemignani – Mary Poppins Returns
Wende Crowley – Peter Rabbit
Best Music Supervision for Films Budgeted Under $25 Million
Howard Paar – Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Buck Damon – Dumplin’
Tom Wolfe and Manish Raval – Green Book (WINNER)
Season Kent – Love, Simon
Season Kent – The Hate U Give
Best Music Supervision for Films Budgeted Under $10 Million
Michael Hill – How to Talk to Girls at Parties
Kevin Edelman and Ben Sokoler – I Can Only Imagine
Howard Paar – Private Life
Margaret Yen and Alison Litton – Vox Lux (WINNER)
Best Music Supervision for Films Budgeted Under $5 Million
Joel C. High – Armed
Jonathan McHugh – Blindspotting
Joe Rudge – Eighth Grade (WINNER)
Joe Rudge and Chris Swanson – Hearts Beat Loud
Joseph Miller – Izzy Gets The F*ck Across Town
I think that Vox Lux would be too small to be on anybody’s radar & Green Book would likely miss to another nominee (either Dumplin’, Love, Simon or The Hate U Give. More inclined toward Dumplin’ since “Girl in the Movies” also got an invidual Guild nom for Best Song, however Season Kent was MS for the latter two so I think that shows support for him)
Eighth Grade I believe will get respect due to being able to licensing on a tiny on a budget, plus being a “cool” choice. A Star Is Born & Black Panther I feel Are definitely in.
So in the end I think this year’s final five would be
• A Star Is Born
• Black Panther
• Eighth Grade
• either Love, Simon or The Hate U Give (flip a coin)
