Golden Globe Nominees: Best Original Score – Motion Picture

My predictions: 3/5
What’s missing? “The Adventures of Tintin,” “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” “The Help,” “J. Edgar,” plenty of others

This category was a crapshoot, but I still managed to do alright. The Artist (Ludovic Bource) represents the only first-time nominee in this category, a sensible inclusion since the film contains no dialogue and is driven by its music. Last year’s nominees for “The Social Network” return for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross), as well as the composer of “A Single Man” for W.E. (Abel Korzeniowski). Two heavyweights are also present, for Hugo (Howard Shore) and War Horse (John Williams). I’ve yet to fully delve into the best scores of the year, so I’ll have more to say closer to awards night.

Who could win? Probably “The Artist,” but maybe “War Horse” or “W.E.”
