Not at all, not at all, and you know better about grammar and punctuation than some native English-speakers around here!

He would have been nominated in any case.

Empire of the Sun was richly deserved, my favorite Williams score of the 80s.

That is also true. In my lists Williams would have won seven times: Star Wars, Superman, The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., Empire of the Sun, Schindler's List. Maybe a song here and there, too.
