Comments about the soundtrack for The Lion King (Hans Zimmer)

Forrest Gump is better than The Lion King

In my opinion, Zimmer's score had nothing to win an Academy Award. Silvestri's Forrest Gump, should won it. I mean, it's much more "Academy style" to win an award. And the beutiful piano theme cannot be compared with those African styles and whatnot. The reason why Zimmer had won it just could be one: It's a Disney film. I can go further. I think there was no reason to Menken had won THREE awards. Doubtless, 94 was the year for Silvestri whereas he hadn't even nominated for any Back to the Future trilogy before. It would a plus. But in 2000 Zimmer's Gladiator, was the better one.
