Every year, I write a memo to the Music Branch of the Academy to highlight scores that I think have the best chance to get a nomination, and to suggest other scores that are flying below the radar. To read my in-depth analysis of the music categories, check out this month’s column in FSM Online. But here is a listing of my score predictions and suggestions for the film year 2013:


Most Likely

The Book Thief—John Williams
Captain Phillips—Henry Jackman
Gravity—Steven Price
Saving Mr. Banks—Thomas Newman
12 Years a Slave—Hans Zimmer

 

Possible

All Is Lost—Alex Ebert
Monsters University—Randy Newman
Rush—Hans Zimmer
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty—Theodore Shapiro
The Wind Rises—Joe Hisaishi

 

For Your Consideration

Labor Day—Rolfe Kent
Mama—Fernando Velazquez
Oblivion—Anthony Gonzalez & Joseph Trapanese
Philomena—Alexandre Desplat
Wadjda—Max Richter

 

Best Song

I See Fire—The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
Let It Go—Frozen
The Moon Song—Her
Ordinary Love—Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom
Young and Beautiful—The Great Gatsby
