Uhm, what exactly are you saying? Do you even know what you are saying?

Are you suggesting Bates is an Oscar worthy composer? Or the RC boys are? Cause looking at the nominees of the last couple of years, Zimmer is the only RC composer who has received an Oscar nomination.

Also if you think the quality of a film has anything to do with the quality of the composer you are a moron. Jerry Goldsmith's resume is filled with terrible films, yet he's considered to be one of the best film composers ever. Brian Tyler is one of the more interesting composers around and I don't he ever scored a film that is considered to be great. John Ottman and Marco Beltrami are also two very talented composers who scored plenty of terrible films.

As for Bates' Conan score, I'm listening to it right now. It's ok in a guilty pleasure kind of way I guess, but once it finished I doubt I'll remember a single second of it.
