Oscar Nominees: Best Original Score

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Hidden Figures” and “Nocturnal Animals” over “Jackie” and “Passengers”
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: Jackie, La La Land, Lion, Moonlight, Passengers

I got three that were Best Picture frontrunners, all of which are good choices here. I didn't bet on "Jackie," a score I found to be very obnoxious but joins the film's costume designer and star Natalie Portman today. Rounding out the list is one big name, Thomas Newman, with a bid for "Passengers," which also got in for Best Art Direction. I'll have other scores to honor when I make my picks, and I’ll be listening to these whenever I can until then!

My current bet to win: I think La La Land takes this.
