The nominees for Best Score are
- Alexandre Desplat for Philomena
- Thomas Newman for Saving Mr. Banks
- John Williams for The Book Thief
- William Butler and Owen Pallett for Her
- Steven Price for Gravity
Some of you know I'm a Desplat groupie - check out this gushing post or this one so you can already guess I think the talented Mr. Desplat deserves the win. Desplat has been nominated five times previously, for The Queen, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The King's Speech and Argo. That's five times in the last seven years and the man has yet to win. It's time people!
I'll be posting music from the other nominees later - check the links above for updates and for now give a listen to the main theme from Philomena.
