It bums me out that there doesn't seem to be any way to add polls to existing threads in the current version of the board, but oh well.

The nominees for the Oscar are (with the ones I've seen in bold):

  • Thomas Newman, Bridge of Spies
  • Carter Burwell, Carol
  • Ennio Morricone, The Hateful Eight
  • Jóhann Jóhannsson, Sicario
  • John Williams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens
This is Burwell's first nomination, which is interesting, considering how long he's been in the business and how many award-worthy films he has scored. Williams, meanwhile, remains the second-most-nominated person in Academy history, after Walt Disney.
