Hans Zimmer & Jonny Greenwood Top Academy’s Original Score Shortlist With Two Slots Apiece

Composers Hans Zimmer and Jonny Greenwood came in strong on the Academy’s shortlist for Best Original Score, securing two slots apiece from a total of 15. Zimmer enters the next phase of Oscars competition with his scores for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and Cary Fukunaga’s Bond film No Time to Die. Greenwood, meanwhile, moves forward with his soundtracks for Jane Campion’s Western The Power of the Dog and Pablo Larraín’s Princess Diana drama, Spencer.

Zimmer is an 11-time nominee who won an Oscar for his score to The Lion King in 1995, most recently vying for gold with Christopher Nolan’s 2018 World War II drama, Dunkirk. Greenwood—who also scored Paul Thomas Anderson’s recently released Licorice Pizza—earned his first nomination that same year with Anderson’s Phantom Thread.

The only past Oscar winner in contention this year, apart from Zimmer, is Alexandre Desplat—who nabbed a slot with The French Dispatch. Daniel Pemberton (Being the Ricardos), Nicholas Britell (Don’t Look Up), Alberto Iglesias (Parallel Mothers) and Carter Burwell (The Tragedy of Macbeth) are the past nominees returning to the race, with Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Candyman), Germaine Franco (Encanto), Daniel Hart (The Green Knight), Jeymes Samuel (The Harder They Fall) and Harry Gregson-Williams (The Last Duel) looking to lock in their first noms. (While Kris Bowers earned his first nomination this year in the category of Best Documentary Short Subject with his film A Concerto Is a Conversation, he too is looking for his first recognition in the category of Original Score, having secured a slot today with King Richard.)

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also unveiled shortlists today in the categories of Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, International Feature Film, Makeup and Hairstyling, Music (Original Song), Animated Short Film, Live Action Short Film, Sound and Visual Effects. Nominations voting begins on January 27 and wraps up on February 1, with noms for the 94th Academy Awards to be announced on February 8.
