Pretty cool that a Bond score won. Too bad he's not nominated for an oscar.

Why does this feel like last year's news ?

How come the Grammy's and Oscar are out of sync for what's eligible that same year. i.e. this should have won last year ?

Congrats to Mr Newman though.

At first I thought this was a joke post, suggesting the board is running so slow we're just now receiving posts about last year's Grammys.

But hey, congrats to Thomas Newman and the James Bond franchise for the recognition.

Yeah. The timing of the Grammy's always seems to be behind. Feels like SKYFALL came out 2 years ago. Would think John Williams would have won for LINCOLN this year if it's behind like that. It's just whacky.

But, congrats to Maestro Newman. I really hope he takes home the Oscar for his SAVING MR. BANKS Score. Really love it in the movie and apart from it. The End Title music really tears me up. It's really lovely.

The eligibility period for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards was October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2013, Wikipedia tells us. Skyfall came out right at the beginning of this period, that's why it feels like such a long time.

Let's not forget he was also Oscar-nominated last year, for Skyfall.

I really don't know what JohnF is talking about.

Yeah - let's get him! Anyone bring a rope?

Honestly, he made a simple error. The other poster quoted above was so cross about it that he even forgot in his incandescence how to speak and write.

A bit of proportionality, chaps!

Thank goodness, and good for him. A good composer.

Otherwise, what a wretched TV awards show.
Can someone please have Macklemore go away? Worst haircut of the year too.

Nice! I was surprised to read that this is his SIXTH Grammy. The Grammy voters seem to give Newman the love that the Oscar voters won't.

MORRIS: So you've failed to win an Oscar 8 times?

NEWMAN: No, I've failed 7 times, this will be my 8th.

Must say that I am not that happy with this Grammy for Newman. I think most people in here would agree that the Bond scores are something special, especially the Barry ones, even Conti`s, Martin`s, Hamlisch`s and Arnold`s efforts. But compared to these, Skyfall was ok, but nothing very special. And nothing that deserved an award. I am so afraid that giving awards to efforts like this will make the producers think that what is adequate is "the best", and not allow others to step in. I think Newman has shown us what he can do, but I expect he will be back for the next with Mendes directing again, and being nominated for the Oscar ,getting the Grammy etc. Which is a pity, since he will contribute nothing new. As was the problem with a lot of Arnolds wall to wall action musiser.

I would prefer Arnold to Newman, but very much like to se Desplat do a Bond.

The Grammys and Oscars are more about who is flavour of the month, and not necceasasrily the best quality and most deserving. And it`s an American thing. Why would John Barry never get nominated for a Grammy or Oscar for any of the Bond films? And why was Hamlisch nominated for TSWLM? He was certainly the flavour of the month in the US back in 1977.

Barry won a Grammy for Goldfinger in 1965.

Mortenbond, surely you can accept that other people liked Newman's score more than you. And surely, you know that the producers aren't sitting around saying "Well, if it was good enough to get a Grammy, I guess it'll be fine." I don't think this award will change the score for the next Bond by even one note.

Let's see: You're upset that Newman won but you contend that the awards are absolute crap.

Tastes and trends change over the decades. Barry's Bond years are long gone, but recall, please, that he was also doing other, more sedate, movie work AND winning Oscars for them...such things as "Born Free" and "The Lion in Winter" during his biggest Bond years. For whatever reason, the music branch of the Academy did not consider the Bond scores worthier than the other scores that actually received nominations, but they certainly recognized Barry's gift for scoring.

There is no accounting for taste, my friend. That is readily apparent in every year when recordings are up for awards and others are left in the dust.
