I too am another fan of both Harry Potter and LOTR. It was torn between both of these soundtracks last year. They were both so great! But since The Lord of the Rings was such a smash at the box office, it was bound to win something. The Lord of the Rings score has some powerful and emotionally gripping themes. When you listen to the soundtrack, you're taken back to middle earth. People love this kind of music, and I do as well, but not all of the time. This is where Harry Potter comes in. I've always been a huge John Williams fan, so I naturally wanted to see the movie right away. After seeing about the first few minutes of the movie, I knew that it was a hit with me. I absolutely loved everything about it! Both Harry Potter and LOTR had incredible, unforgetable scores, and I'll love them both forever. Was Harry Potter better than Lord of the Rings? Or is it the other way around? Who can say? I'm glad Howard Shore won an academy award. John Williams already has a few of his own. Very few composers recieve that high honor. It really doesn't matter anyhow! John Williams is still writing great music and will win another one within the next couple of years.
