In the Best Original Music category, which is named in memory of the film director Anthony Asquith, the nominees are:
- JUSTIN HURWITZ for La La Land
- JÓHANN JÓHANNSSON for Arrival
- ABEL KORZENIOWSKI for Nocturnal Animals
- MICA LEVI for Jackie
- DUSTIN O’HALLORAN and VOLKER “HAUSCHKA” BERTELMANN for Lion
This is the third BAFTA nomination for Jóhannsson, and the second nomination for Levi. All the other four nominees are first-time recipients, although Korzeniowski did win a BAFTA TV Award in 2015 for his television score Penny Dreadful. None of the nominees have previously won a British Academy Film Award.
The winners of the 70th BAFTA Awards will be announced on February 12, 2017.
