oscarstatuetteThe Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) have announced the nominations for the 90th Academy Awards, honoring the best in film in 2017.

In the Best Original Score category, the nominees are:

  • CARTER BURWELL for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri
  • ALEXANDRE DESPLAT for The Shape of Water
  • JONNY GREENWOOD for Phantom Thread
  • JOHN WILLIAMS for Star Wars: The Last Jedi
  • HANS ZIMMER for Dunkirk

This the first nomination for Greenwood and the second nomination for Burwell. Desplat has now been nominated nine times, having previously won for The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014, while Zimmer has now been nominated eleven times, having previously won the The Lion King in 1994.

Incredibly, this is the 51st Oscar nomination for John Williams, which breaks his own record for the most nominated living person, and maintains his position as the second most nominated person of all time after Walt Disney (who had 59). He previously won Academy Awards for Fiddler on the Roof in 1971, Jaws in 1975, Star Wars in 1977, E. T. The Extra-Terrestrial in 1982, and Schindler’s List in 1993.

In the Best Original Song category, the nominees are:

  • KRISTIN ANDERSON-LOPEZ and ROBERT LOPEZ for “Remember Me” from Coco
  • MARY J. BLIGE, RAPHAEL SAADIQ, and TAURA STINSON for “Mighty River” from Mudbound
  • BENJ PASEK and JUSTIN PAUL for “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman
  • SUFJAN STEVENS for “Mystery of Love” from Call Me By Your Name
  • DIANE WARREN and LONNIE LYNN JR. (COMMON) for “Stand Up For Something” from Marshall

The winners of the 90th Academy Awards will be announced on March 4, 2018.

    La La Land was NOT nominated for a song Academy Award this year. Greatest Showman was nominated, however. Easy mistake to make. Love the site JB!
