Wouldn't "Les Miserables" have been an obvious nominee if there were still an "Adapted Score" category?

Wouldn't "Les Miserables" have been an obvious nominee if there were still an "Adapted Score" category?

Possibly, but given the through-sung nature of the film, there was very little incidental music that wasn't already directly from the stage show, and I think the credits that Anne Dudley and Stephen Metcalfe received on the film (I believe it was "Orchestrations" and, in Dudley's case, "Additional Music") might have precluded that.

Bravo, Scott, for your thorough and insightful precis of certain important components of Oscar music history. Clearly, it was a labor of love,(and, clearly, lovable), and a mighty labor at that, which only your initiative and good will compelled you to perform.

Keep up the great work.

Considering how important the sequel and/or The Trilogy Plus are to the film industry right now, I'm surprised the Song Score/Adaptation Category hasn't been brought back. You want you people to watch the oscars, Iron Man III has to get more than a Sound FX nomination.



Did They Mention the Music:

Future Weather- Erik Friedlander

'Apart from a noodly guitar score that sounds like it should be playing in every Park City coffee shop, and some too-emphatic dialogue about the evils of plastic water bottles, there’s almost nothing to criticize.'

The AVClub.com

Heh, 'noodly'...

I don't know, "Best Sequel Score" doesn't seem a category likely to find much favor.

And Tyler's IRON MAN 3 probably wouldn't even qualify for Adaptation Score, since I suspect it will be an original effort not incorporating themes from Djawadi, Debney or Silvestri.

Burwell, Nyman and Preisner are the ones that hurt the most on that list. Especially considering the fact that all three worked on at least one Oscar-bait project that should have surely landed them in Original Score. Christopher Young I'll call an also-ran, if only for the fact that he traditionally works in films that aren't ever considered significant award contenders, although he's contributed so much to his mainstay genres.

cool
