    It’s going to be Carter Burwell for sure.

      I think Desplat will win. He already won the golden globe.

  2. Dono says:

    Predictable. Desplat will have another award on his shelf…

  3. Bernd-Helmut Heine says:

    Interestingly “Beauty and the Beast” didn´t get any nomination, neither the score nor the songs. Quite a disappointment IMHO!

  4. Ryan says:

    If the same songwriters from La La Land win for This is Me, I would go bonkers, wish they don’t have a movie in the bag for this year

  5. liamdude5 says:

    Out of these, it should go to either Williams or Desplat.

  6. Jeff says:

    Dunkirk?? Really??? Did these people even listen to that endless boring droning score before nominating it? What are they smoking over there?
