John Williams wrote about 150 score in 25 years. Jerry Goldsmith wrote 300 scores in 42 years. Ennio Morricone wrote more than 400 scores in the same years like Goldsmith did. Now compare the nominations: more than 30, 19 and 5. It is very cruel from the Academy. Williams always wrote dripping music and he never wrotes any good action music. I agree that he wrotes good themes, but that is all.
