> Newman gets an Oscar nomination on his first try.

Oh, yes, because we all know Oscar nominations are the only true measure of a score's quality...

The one thing Arnold had that Newman doesn't is balls. He's not afraid to cut loose and create these enormous gargantuan action cues that run for several minutes with the orchestra and electronics flying all over the place. Tell me, is there a single moment in the Skyfall score where the brass wails? Ever? No. Because Newman's score is nowhere near ballsy enough. And also, Arnold doesn't sound anything like John Barry...not even remotely.
