    I don’t get this. Gone Girl’s score is extremely overrated, and Saving Mr. Banks is good, but not one of Newman’s best. And as for Frozen… did this guys didn’t hear Maleficent, How To Train Your Dragon 2, Interstellar? All of them are way better than Beck’s score. I think the only one who truly deserves the nomination is Grand Budapest Hotel.

  2. Alonso says:

    These are some poor choices for the nominations. Also, why are they from both 2013 and 2014?

  3. Jacob says:

    So, easiest prediction ever – Frozen, Frozen and… wait for it… FROZEN
