IFMCA nominees

Get ready for the most awesome playlist ever! I will include links to where you can hear the Film Score nominees with your very own ears. Ore someone else’s ears, if you’re psychotic. My thoughts after each category.

FILM SCORE OF THE YEAR

Cloud Atlas
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The Impossible
Life Of Pi
Lincoln

Kind of odd that only two of the Oscar nominees for original score are here, but whatever. Life Of Pi gets my vote!

FILM COMPOSER OF THE YEAR

Mychael Danna (Life Of Pi)
Alexandre Desplat (Moonrise Kingdom, Rise Of The Guardians, Zero Dark Thirty)
Danny Elfman (Frankenweenie, Silver Linings Playbook)
Fernando Velåzquez (The Impossible)
John Williams (Lincoln)

I don’t see how Desplat could lose this.

BREAKOUT COMPOSER OF THE YEAR

Nathan Johnson (Looper)
Zeltia Montes (Lovetown)
Nic Raine (Shores Of Hope)
Dan Romer & Benh Zietlin (Beasts Of The Southern Wild)
Joseph Trapanese (Tron: Uprising)

This is Beasts Of The Southern Wild’s win, for sure.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR A DRAMA FILM

Anna Karenina
The Impossible
Life Of Pi
Lincoln
There Be Dragons

I’ve never heard of that last one, but If Toothless is in it, I’ll see it. Life Of Pi for the win!

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR A COMEDY FILM

Moonrise Kingdom
Salmon Fishing In The Yemen
The Sessions
Silver Linings Playbook
Ted

The Sessions is a comedy? I’d say Moonrise Kingdom.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR AN ACTION/ADVENTURE/THRILLER FILM

The Amazing Spider-Man
Dans La Masion
The Dark Knight Rises
Skyfall
Zero Dark Thirty

It’s Batman vs. James Bond! PS, Am I the only one who thinks that would be cool to see in real life?

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR A FANTASY/SCIENCE FICTION/HORROR FILM

Cloud Atlas
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
John Carter
Prometheus
Sinister

I’m gonna say Cloud Atlas.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR AN ANIMATED FILM

Brave
Frankenweenie
ParaNorman
Rise Of The Guardians
Secret Of The Wings

Wreck-It Ralph snubbed in favor of Secret Of The Wings. Allow me to cry for you.   Q_O

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE FOR A DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

Kingdom Of Plants
Los Mundos Sutiles
Metsån Tarina
Samsara
Shakespeare And Us

I’m going to say Samsara, because it’s the only one I’ve heard of.

BEST MUSIC COMPOSITION OF THE YEAR

The Cloud Atlas Sextet For Orchestra, Cloud Atlas
The Impossible Main Title, The Impossible
John Carter Of Mars, John Carter
Pi’s Lullaby, Life Of Pi
The Peterson House And Finale, Lincoln

Pi’s Lullaby is part of the score? I’ll give this to Cloud Atlas.
