The nominations for the Oscar Awards have just been announced. Shortly after the Grammy Awards, the Oscars took center stage.
In the ‘Best Original Score’ category, we find Trent Reznor who is behind the music of the latest Disney Pixar film Soul, alongside Atticus Ross for Mank and Terence Blanchard for Da 5 Blood.
There is also Emile Mosseri for the film Minari and James Newton Howard for News of the World.. Also nominated was Sound Of Metal, starring Riz Ahmed as a punk-metal drummer. The film is also nominated for ‘Best Picture’, with Ahmed nominated for ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’.
But one of the big names in this category is the singer H.E.R., who after her Grammy Award wins, is nominated for Best Original Song. The singer produced the track “Fight For You” from the film Judas and the Black Messiah.
Other nominees in this category are Daniel Pemberton and Celeste with “Hear My Voice” (The Trial of the Chicago 7) and the song “Húsavík” by Savan Kotecha, Rickard Goransson and Fat Max Gsus (Eurovision Song Contest).
But also Diane Warren, Laura Pausini, and Niccolò Agliardi with “Io Si (Seen)” for the film The Life Ahead as well as Leslie Odom, Jr. and Sam Ashworth with “Speak Now” (One Night in Miami).
To know the results, we’ll have to wait until April 26 for the award ceremony.
