Predicted both...both well-deserved...would have been nice to see Williams pick up another but Gravity is an excellent score.

ok... after two scores that actually deserved to win, let's get back to usual crap and least worthy nominees win!

Out of the nominations, Gravity is by far my favorite. Glad it won, it deserved it!

Wow, nice. I know Gravity isn't everyone's cup of tea, but the score served the film very well.

The voters definitely got that one right, voting Gravity for best score.

Depressingly tasteless choice as usual.

Tasteless? I found it very tasteful indeed

I called the win for GRAVITY back in October. Congrats, Mr. Price! Well deserved!

It definitely grew on me, and served the film extremely well.

When you set out to compose your first film score it's always a good idea to win an Oscar for it. Just ask Bernard Herrmann.

No complaints from me, either. Also one of the most enjoyable Oscar telecast of recent years.

Herrmann didn't win an Oscar for his first score – it was for his second: The Devil and Daniel Webster.

It was nice to see John Williams and Thomas Newman sitting together in the box.

Absolutely. Great score that did what it was supposed to do, support the film. smile

Wonder why Hans Zimmer wasn't nominated for 12 YEARS A SLAVE? He's usually a Oscar honey.

Book Thief was good Williams, but not great.

Saving Mr. Banks contained way too much Mary Poppins. I was surprised it was eligible.

Phenomena was very good but Desplat can write a score like that in his sleep.

Her was just kinda ...there. I LOVED the film, but the score didn't do anything for me.

Gravity is a very effective score within the film that builds to an uplifting crescendo that folks remember as they finish watching the film.

The surprise for me was the song from Frozen. I hadn't heard it before. And all I'd read about it would have led me to believe that it was the greatest song since the heyday of Menken and Ashman. Color me surprised when I heard wannabe pop drivel, tuneless, with awful "empowerment" lyrics and - no ending. If that's someone's idea of a great song, count me out. Then again, the other nominees were much worse. I don't know, call me crazy but Moon River is a great song, Part Of Your World is a great song, Beauty and the Beast is a great song, Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing is a great song - Let It Go - I don't think so, IMO.

:Facepalm: The song is essential to the film. If you haven't seen it, then no wonder you haven't understood the lyrics. I'm glad for Price His score was essential to Gravity as both sound effects, and musical score. I was moved by Idina's performance of Let It Go, even though the last note was itchy.

And for the JNH/Hunger Games score-films haters, the orchestra played two times the main themes of both scores and people recognized it. Also, there was some good use of themes (except for Horner's Spider-Man theme performed when Chris Evans shows up and after that, having the Cap. America theme).

I don't have to see the film to know a great song when I hear it. Facepalm to you. You think I need to see Wizard of Oz to know that Over the Rainbow is a great song? I don't (I have, of course, but I don't). Think I need to see Beauty and the Beast to know that Belle is a great song? I don't. This song, for ME, was pap, tuneless in the way of so many wannabe pop songs, with awkward lyrics. Glad you like it, facepalm.
