Wouldn’t it be cool if Clint Eastwood won? (I’ve heard composers say he must have had help, it’s just plain too good for an actor / director to have done!)
And isn’t it interesting that Danny Elfman scored a film like Milk?
Alexandre Desplat, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
Clint Eastwood, “Changeling”
Danny Elfman, “Milk”
James Newton Howard, Hans Zimmer, “The Dark Knight”
A.R. Rahman, “Slumdog Millionaire””
