    It’s a shame that Wallfisch doesn’t get equal billing for Dunkirk, given that the most effective bit of the score – the reworking of Nimrod – was his work. And the most subtle bit in an otherwise less-than-subtle score.

    Also a shame that there’s no nomination for Christopher Willis – his score for The Death of Stalin was my 2017 highlight. I assumed it was “real” Soviet music until I saw the credit.

    Two nominations for Zimmer? They’re out of their minds…
