Golden Globe Nominees: Best Original Score

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Carol” and “The Danish Girl”
What’s missing? Spotlight, Bridge of Spies, The Martian, Room

This list could easily have been a Best Picture field. I'm surprised that “Spotlight” isn't here, but I still have to see three of these films. Frequent Coen Brothers collaborator Carter Burwell earns his second career Globe nomination for Carol, which is recognized in the top race along with The Revenant, composed by two-time winner Ryuichi Sakamoto and first-time nominee Alva Noto. Alexandre Desplat scored his eighth Globe nod for The Danish Girl, joined by first-time nominee Daniel Pemberton for Steve Jobs and veteran Ennio Morricone, earning his ninth nomination, for The Hateful Eight. More thoughts once I've seen all the films and heard their music.

What will win? I think it will be The Danish Girl.
