No TRON? I would have loved to see how that score fared here.
Listening to it for the article, it is definitely one of my favorite scores of the year.
Also, I was kind of struck that Genocide was considered a 1982 score. I'd always had it in my mind as 1981.
Just for fun, I just thought I'd share a portion of my ballot with the people here:
Best Theme Keys (E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial) Main Theme (Monsignor) Triumph (Night Crossing) The Light (Poltergeist) The Dog Attacks (White Dog)
Best Main Title - Film Forced Vengeance (William Goldstein) Friday the 13th Part 3-D (Harry Manfredini) I, The Jury (Bill Conti) Megaforce (Jerrold Immel) The Secret of N.I.M.H. (Jerry Goldsmith)
Best Underscore Cue Column of Sadness/Wheel of Pain (Conan the Barbarian) The Departure (E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial) Escape Route (First Blood) The Pit (The Challenge) Plans (Night Crossing)
Best Action Cue Allergic Reaction/Athletic Type (The Secret of N.I.M.H.) Battle of the Mounds, Part II (Conan the Barbarian) Enterprise Attacks Reliant (Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan) Over the Top/Fish Market (The Challenge) The Rescue and Bike Chase (E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial)
It's ridiculous that Blade Runner, the candidate for the greatest film score of all time, did even got a single nomination. And what about Philip Glass's Koyaanisqatsi, one of the most groundbreaking film scores ever?
