BAFTA nominations

January 18, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) have released their nominations for the 2010 BAFTA Awards. The nominees for the Anthony Asquith Award for Best Original Music are:

  • ALEXANDRE DESPLAT for The King’s Speech
  • DANNY ELFMAN for Alice in Wonderland
  • JOHN POWELL for How to Train Your Dragon
  • A.R. RAHMAN for 127 Hours
  • HANS ZIMMER for Inception

If they had omitted 127 HOURS and replaced it with James Newton Howard’s THE LAST AIRBENDER (unlikely, I know, considering how awful the movie was) this would have been an almost perfect list of nominees – and no Trent Reznor in sight! The full list of nominees is here: http://www.bafta.org/awards/film/2011-film-awards,1572,BA.html

    A fine list. Unlike the HFPA, it seems that the guys at the British Academy have ears, and they can tell good music from bad. I only wish the Oscar list would look like this, but unfortunately that is unlikely.
