The nominations for the 2019 Golden Globe Awards have been announced and we're particularly interested in who's up for Best original Score.
And the nominees for Best Original Score are…
Marco Beltrami for A Quiet Place (2018) which follows the lives of a family forced to live in silence in a dangerous, alien-ridden world. Beltrami expertly took to the task of scoring 21st Century silent cinema and landed himself his first nomination for a Golden Globe.
Alexandre Desplat for Isle of Dogs (2018), Wes Anderson’s masterpiece which follows a boy’s search for his lost dog. Desplat previous work includes scores for The Danish Girl (2015) and The Imitation Game (2014). He won a Golden Globe last year for his incredible score for The Shape of Water (2017). Will he win it two years running?
Ludwig Göransson for Black Panther (2018), the cultural milestone everyone was talking about at the start of the year. Göransson is one of the busiest composers around, taking on multiple projects at once. He is multi-award winning, however, this is his first Golden Globe nomination.
Justin Hurwitz for First Man (2018); Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong during the famous 1969 space mission. Hurwitz is probably best known for his work on the 2016 smash hit La La Land and has many credits and awards to his name. Hurwitz won two Golden Globes for La La Landtwo years ago.
Marc Shaiman for Mary Poppins Returns (2018), as Emily Blunt attempts to fill Julie Andrew’smassive shoes in a revamp of the classic. Shaiman is particularly experienced in scoring musicals as previous work includes Smash (2013-2013) and Hairspray (2007), however I’m sure scoring a revamp of such a beloved film is no mean feat. Scott Wittman is also credited as composer, however, he has been missed off the nomination list. Shaiman was nominated for the Best Original Song Golden Globe last year for The Star (2017).
The Golden Globe Awards will take place on 6th January 2019.
