You have alredy told the answer. That the Academy likes him very much and he works for Spielberg. The films you have listed are really good musics and some of those should had a nomination.
But if you know that Anne Dudley won an Oscar for Full Monthy, and David Newman's ANASTASIA and Hans Zimmer's AS GOOD AS IT GETS lost.
So where's the truth?
