Oscars 2019 – Best Original Score

Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman seems to have the best support behind it, followed closely by the heroic Black Planter. Blanchard combined jazz, symphony, and R&B influences to create the feel of the 1970s through his score. Goransson went to Africa to study Senegalese music for his inspired Black Panther score. Although I would love to see Black Panther pick up this category, Blanchard seems to be the pick.

  1. “BlacKkKlansman,” Terence Blanchard
  2. “Black Panther,” Ludwig Goransson
  3. “Isle of Dogs,” Alexandre Desplat
  4. “If Beale Street Could Talk,” Nicholas Britell
  5. “Mary Poppins Returns,” Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman
