2014 Movie Music Hall of Fame: what do you think?
25 August 2014, 19:55
We've just announced the nation's favourite movie music – and we want to know what you think. What should have been in this year's chart? Why aren't there more women composers? Where are the new film scores?
What a day! Since 6am, we've been counting down your top 30 all-time favourite film scores and I've just had the pleasure of revealing the nation's number one.
- The most successful composer in the chart is John Williams. This living legend has four scores in the Top 10 and a further six in the Top 50. But the No. 1 spot still eludes him. Why do you think that is?
- There are a number of notable omissions. Which absent scores do you think should have made it into the Top 100?
- The British composer Steven Price has made the biggest impact on film music in the past year. His critically-acclaimed score for Gravity won him an Oscar and a Bafta, and is the highest new entry at no. 33. But other great new scores are nowhere to be seen. Why aren't they grabbing our attention so much?
- And where are the women film composers? Debbie Wiseman's music for Wilde is the only score by a female composer in the top 100.
