I think it would be rather arrogant from any composer to say that it does bother him that he didn't won every oscar he/she was nominated for... I think it is a modest statement in the vain of zimmer: "you win some, you loose some..." Oh by the way, if people focus to much on Williams it's because they love his music and prefer him above a lot of other composers. And yes, i'm one of those people. But I buy and enjoy other composers just as much. composers as zimmer, horner, doyle, goldenthal, portman, newton howard, preisner, coulais, yared,... but as for williams, I buy his albums without a preview listen, because i know it s gonna be good if not, fantastic! And so far, he never failed me!!! greetz Jojo
