2015 Academy Award Predictions — Best Original Score


The Nominees:

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel — Alexandre Desplat
  • The Imitation Game — Alexandre Desplat
  • Interstellar — Hans Zimmer
  • Mr. Turner — Gary Yershon
  • The Theory of Everything — Johann Johannsson


Will Win: The Theory of Everything

Could Win: The Imitation Game

Should Win: The Theory of Everything


The Theory of Everything‘s score is beautiful. It won the Golden Globe. As such, it stands out as the clear favorite. I was initially tempted to go with Alexandre Desplat for The Imitation Game, but he may be splitting the vote against his favor by being listed twice among these nominees. I also considered Hans Zimmer’s chances, but the score of Interstellar, although ethereal and befitting of the film’s mood, doesn’t quite stack up against Johann Johannsson’s score.
