Oscar Predictions: Best Original Score

This year, Oscar nominations will be announced on Tuesday, February 8th. I’ll be offering detailed predictions in all categories.

Last year’s nominees: Da 5 Bloods, Mank, Minari, News of the World, Soul

My choices: Coming next week!

This year’s locks: Dune, The Power of the Dog

Very likely: None

Possible: The Tragedy of Macbeth, Spencer, The French Dispatch, Being the Ricardos, Don’t Look Up, King Richard, Parallel Mothers

Unlikely: No Time to Die, The Last Duel, The Green Knight, Encanto, The Harder They Fall, Candyman

The rundown: For the fourth year in a row, the contenders in this category have been winnowed down to just fifteen finalists. I’m pleased to direct you to my Oscar volley with Timothy from The Film Experience – check out that piece to read all my thoughts (and his).

Forecasted winner: I think Dune wins this.
