The ballots have been cast, and the winner has been chosen. Gravity has won the award for Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Best Original Score. Composer Steven Price accepted the award for the score.
Everyone has their role to play in a motion picture; the directors bring their visions to light from behind the camera, actors and actresses bring their characters to life in front of the camera, and composers make things happen from behind a mixer, an instrument, or in front of an orchestra.
Some people tend to underappreciate the importance of a good score. The score a film can bring together the most romantic moments, intensify all the action going on around you, or even chill you to the bone. Without a good score, there would just be silence in between dialogue, and motion pictures would just not have the same feel to them.
Here is a look at the nominees.
The Book Thief – John Williams
Gravity – Steven Price
Her – William Butler and Owen Pallett
Philomena – Alexandre Desplat
Saving Mr. Banks – Thomas Newman
