And with Hans Zimmer officially out of the race, it leaves an opening for… more John Williams. Nico Muhly‘s work in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is looking increasingly possible here as well.

Alexandre Desplat has got to be a little frustrated at this point; four nominations, no wins. And he’s going up against Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Interesting thing is that neither one of their films has the same sort of Oscar-sway as The King’s Speech or The Social Network.
After the whole There Will Be Blood debacle, I’m honestly hurting to see Jonny Greenwood score a nomination. His work in We Need to Talk About Kevin is phenomenal, though a little too subtle within Lynne Ramsay’s own eclectic music selections to make a move. But how great would it be for Greenwood AND Reznor to score noms?!?
