Best Original Score Prediction for 2020 Oscars

Collin Wilson: 1917 +325 (will wait for +500)

Joker should absolutely be the favorite in this category, as Hildur Guðnadóttir has become the hottest name in the industry. Guðnadóttir just won the Best Score Grammy for her work on Chernobyl and was named Composer of the Year at the World Soundtrack Awards.

The money on 1917 Best Original Score completely pulls at the ‘lifetime achievement’ strings. Thomas Newman is nominated once again by the Academy but is yet to win a single instance. Newman has 15 nominations over his career for work including Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty, Finding Nemo and WALL-E.

There certainly is a bit of Meryl Streep to this story. The actress has 17 nominations for Best Actress and just two victories. Newman may get enough votes for ‘lifetime achievement’ to make this category interesting.  Personally, I will wait for the number to offer better odds as the public gets more involved in the market.
