  1. Penderghast says:

    John Williams: *farts*
    Everybody: Here’s all the awards.

  2. Brian says:

    Isn’t Lorne Balfe nominated also for Ad Astra.
    He was the co composer I thought?

    • MrMike says:

      Lorne Balfe wrote the best scenes in Ad Astra so why is he not even nominated?Seems very strange.

  3. RobinJones says:

    The score was by Max Richter AND Lorne Balfe.So why is Balfe being discredited?Did he not write it now???

  4. liamdude5 says:

    Winners should be:
    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – John Williams
    Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga
    Into the Unknown (from Frozen 2) – Kristewn Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez (Songwriters)

  5. matevans says:

    Penderghast, you may not like his style or find him interesting but surely you cannot deny that compositionally John Williams is probably the best in the business and his score did virtually all of the emotional heavy lifting in The Rise of Skywalker.

  6. MrMagoo says:

    Where is his credit ???????
