What you give is a fine indication of the quality of the music of those composers, although your knowledge about the number of scores by Williams (92 scores in 43 years, 50 in the last 25 years) as well as his number of nominations (41 in total, 30 in the last 25 years), AND about the other two composers you name (Goldsmith: 98 scores in 50 years, 18 nominations; Morricone: 389 scores in 41 years, 5 nominations), show that you don't even know what you are talking about.
I calculated the percentages of nominations against written scores:
Williams: 44.6 %
Goldsmith: 18.4 %
Morricone: 1.3 %
You say this is because prejudice of the Academy? Don't be stupid. Look at the numbers of golden globe nominations (Williams: 18, Goldsmith: 6, Morricone: 6)and draw the one RIGHT conclusion.
