So that was the difference... the period music!! I didn´t know it, thank you for your commentary

It´s sad but truth. "The terminal" is a very good score to a comedy, but isn´t one of the great scores that we usually hear from JW. "The prisoner of Azkaban" is thematically rich and symphonically strong. But the Academy usually rejects the following scores of the sagas (except "The lord of the rings"). I think that is a crime that John Williams has only one award for Star Wars.

I´m Spanish, my English must be seriously improved, so I don´t know what you mean saying "You will die a horrible death, Oliver Stone!" when I nominate "Alexander". I believe that you didn´t like very much the movie, and I´m agree. But remember, I´m judging the score, not the movie. So I´m nominating Vangelis, not Oliver Stone...
I´m sad when I see the Academy forgetting a good score only because it´s in a bad movie, or simply in a movie that doesn´t fight for the Academy Awards. "Hook", "The time machine", "Legends of the fall", "Edward Scissorhands", "Crimson tide"... all of them are great scores that were ignored by the Academy only to be in bad movies (the first three) or movies not orientated to the Awards (the last two). I like to judge only the music
