Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Original Score

The competition: Anna Karenina (Dario Marianelli), Argo (Alexandre Desplat), Life of Pi (Mychael Danna), Lincoln (John Williams), Skyfall (Thomas Newman)

Previous winners: The Artist, The Social Network, Up, Slumdog Millionaire, Atonement, Babel
My winner: TBA
The facts: Danna, who won the Golden Globe this year, is the only newbie in this race. Williams holds the record for the most nominations, with a staggering 43 as of this year, with five wins, including Steven Spielberg films “Jaws” and “Schindler’s List.” This is the third nomination for Marianelli, who won in 2007 for another Joe Wright film, “Atonement.” Newman has been nominated ten times and never won, and Desplat has been nominated five times.
Who should win: “Anna Karenina”
Who will win: The competition is tough, but I think that Lincoln will ultimately prevail.
