Best soundtracks 2013
And the nominees for Best Original Score are...
The 2013 winner of the Best Original Score category was announced on February 24th as Canadian composer Mychael Danna, whose soundtrack for Ang Lee's Life Of Pi beat competition from the likes of John Williams for Lincoln and Thomas Newman for Skyfall.
- Mychael Danna's Life Of Pi score was his first ever Oscar triumph. Only weeks before, Danna also picked up the Golden Globe for the same soundtrack.
- His fellow nominees were John Williams (Lincoln), Alexandre Desplat (Argo), Thomas Newman (Skyfall) and Dario Marianelli (Anna Karenina).
- John Williams picked up his sixth Oscar for best original score. His soundtrack for Lincoln was his 48th nomination over an unparalleled career.
- This was the tenth nomination that Thomas Newman has received - he is yet to win the Oscar.
- The only first-time nominee was Mychael Danna, whose soundtrack for Life Of Pi won the Golden Globe in the same category. He was also nominated in the Best Original Song category, but lost out to Adele's title song for Skyfall.
