Well, the Oscar noms came out, and here's what they are:

A.I. Artificial Intelligence (John Williams)
A Beautiful Mind (James Horner)
Harry Potter And The Sorcerer's Stone (John Williams)
The Lord Of The Rings (Howard Shore)
Monsters, Inc. (Randy Newman)

I correctly predicted three of the five. The two I thought would be nominated but weren't were Moulin Rouge and Mulholland Drive. I knew Mulholland Drive would somehow not make it, but Moulin Rouge? It's been winning the major awards and yet it didn't get nominated. Personally, I'm kind of happy about that; it's a good score, but I think it's time to give the Oscar to the one who deserves it: Howard Shore. If by some unfortunate reason that he loses, I hope they give it to John Williams for A.I.

That's another thing. I never expected Harry Potter to get nominated. Apparently, I underestimated how good of a score it was; I apologize for doubting you, John. Congratulations on receiving your 40th and 41st nominations; four more and you'll tie Alfred Newman.

Monsters, Inc. I didn't expect either. I never thought it would come out of nowhere; it's obviously the Academy's wild card choice.

I myself have grievances for Elliot Goldenthal and Hans Zimmer never having any chance this year; they both wrote very interesting scores, although I mainly prefer their music beside John Williams'. That's right, I'm one of the few Goldenthal fans out there; I'm not saying that you're not one, but I think you got the point.

The original score battle is almost at an end. After March 24, it'll be time to look at prospective scores already released and will be released. I myself will be looking forward to Star Wars Episode II and Minority Report from John Williams, and Frida from Elliot Goldenthal. I don't know of any future releases from Hans Zimnmer, but I'll find out soon. Well, that's all I have to say. Feel free to post your comments.
