    Really disappointing. Interstellar, The Theory of Everything and, especially, The Imitation Game, were deserved, but Gone Girl’s score was only nominated because those guys are famous. And as for Birdman… I’m sure it only get this nomination because of the prestige this film has with the critics, because there are much better scores in other movies that aren’t so beloved by the voters (like Maleficent).

    Until this day, I really don’t understand why Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross keep on getting nominated for Golden Globes and Oscars. They’ve done their work relatively well, but it doesn’t deserve the recognition it is getting. That’s just stupid.

    In the other hand, why is Antonio Sánchez nominated? He improvised the score! James Newton Howard and Michael Giacchino carefully composed magnificent scores this year but didn’t get nominated.

    I really expected to see JNH’s Maleficent, Michael Giacchino’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or Dario Marianelli’s The Boxtrolls, on the list.

    Oh well, at least, Clint Mansell’s Noah is not nominated.
