Oscar Nominees: Best Original Score

My predictions: 3/5, missing “Argo” and “Skyfall”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: Anna Karenina, Argo, Life of Pi, Lincoln, Skyfall

There are definitely some positives about this category, namely the inclusion of the marvelously film-making score from “Anna Karenina.” The music similarly defined the spirit of “Life of Pi.” It’s fun to see an action piece like “Skyfall” here, its first-ever mention in this category, and “Argo” and “Lincoln” are decent inclusions as well. I was really hoping that “Beasts of the Southern Wild” could muster some momentum here along with the great gains it made in other races, but I guess you can’t have everything.

My current bet to win: Who knows? Maybe Lincoln?
