Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Original Score

The competition: Dunkirk (Hans Zimmer), Phantom Thread (Jonny Greenwood), The Post (John Williams), The Shape of Water (Alexandre Desplat), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Carter Burwell)

For your information: Williams has twenty-four nominations and four wins, the most recent of which came in 2005 for “Memoirs of a Geisha.” Zimmer has thirteen nominations and two wins, for “The Lion King” and “Gladiator.” Desplat has nine nominations, and Burwell has three. This is Greenwood’s first nomination.

Who should win? I haven’t listened closely enough to these – and I have yet to see “Phantom Thread” – but I remember the music from “Dunkirk” and “The Shape of Water” best from the ones I have seen.

Who will win? I think Zimmer will take it for Dunkirk, but it could easily be any of these.
