Oscar Nominees: Best Original Score

My predictions: 4/5
My ballot: Come back in February!
The nominees: BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk, Isle of Dogs, Mary Poppins Returns

This category is where the saddest omission occurred – Golden Globe winner “First Man” didn’t make the cut. It’s a real shame considering how incredible it was. At least If Beale Street Could Talk did get honored, representing its lone technical bid among what should have been several worthwhile nominations it didn’t get. I’m fine with BlacKkKlansman even if it’s not my favorite score of the year, and I can appreciate the musical excitement of Mary Poppins Returns. It’s cool that Black Panther did make the cut, and I’m all for Isle of Dogs being here.

My current bet to win: With the presumed frontrunner out of the way, I think this defaults back to Mary Poppins Returns.
