    Is this going to be Alexandre Desplat’s year? I don’t think so. Jóhann Jóhannsson came up almost out of nowhere with an extremely delightful soundtrack and Hans Zimmer reinvented himself with the highly innovative Interstellar.

    I mean, Alexandre Desplat is simply perfect (he’s my favorite composer of all time), however I think that even though The Grand Budapest Hotel and Unbroken are gorgeous soundtracks (specially the first one), they don’t show a face from him that we have never seen before.

    In the other hand, why is Mr. Turner’s soundtrack nominated. Is not bad and is very well done, but it completely lacks of sentiment and actual melody. Texture, texture, violin squeaking, texture, texture, subtle harp.
