2023 Oscars Prediction: Best Original Score
Category Commentary: The announced Oscar shortlist for Best Original Score had a few surprises.
Former winners in the race currently have the upper hand such as John Williams (“The Fablemans”), Hildur Gunadottir (“The Woman Talking”) and Alexandre Desplat (“Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio”).
With 52 Oscar nominations, Williams is already the second most nominated person (and the oldest) behind Walt Disney, who had 59 nods. Among the most notable and recognized musical movie scores, Williams won five Oscars in his impressive career: “Fiddler on the Roof” (1971), “Jaws” (1976), “Star Wars” (1977), “ET the Extra-Terrestrial” ( 1982) and “Schindler’s List” (1993). At 90, if he were to win, he would be the oldest winner in any competitive Oscar category, surpassing James Ivory, who was 89 when he won adapted screenplay for “Call Me by Your Name” (2017).
By contrast, former nominees such as Terence Blanchard (“The Woman King”) and Carter Burwell (“The Banshees of Inishreen”) have momentum that could propel any of them to the front.
The lineup included two women: Chanda Dancy’s “Bhakti,” who would become the first black woman nominated in the category, and Gudnadotty, who would become the first woman to win the category twice (2019’s “Joker” winner). This comes after the Academy disqualified the follow-up to “Tár”.
“All Quiet on the Western Front” asserts itself as Netflix’s top awards contender with strong performances across the board, including Volker Bartelman’s bombastic and taut musical chords. Nathan Johnson, cousin of writer and director Rian Johnson, managed to make it to the shortlist with “Glass Onion,” the sequel to “Knife Out.”
Composers also “branched out” (no pun intended) with names we initially suspected they’d name like Son Lux’s “Everything Everything All at Once” and Michael Abels’ “No.”
And then on the ticket are films like “Don’t Worry Darling” with John Powell, whose career has yielded only one Oscar nod for “How to Train Your Dragon” (2011) despite worthy efforts like “Shrek.” 2001) and “United 93” (2006). A second career reference may be possible.
Michael Giacchino’s visceral “The Batman,” Emily Levinais-Farouche’s beautiful “Living” and MM Kiravani’s epic and exuberant “RRR” were disappointing not to be among the composers in the running. Still, other nodes will hopefully make their way in the future.
