OSCAR 2012: Best Original Score
On Sunday night, Hollywood honors its own with the 84th annual Academy Awards, broadcast on ABC at 8ET/7CT. All this week, KPAC's Nathan Cone and John Clare have been listening to the nominees for Best Original Score. You can hear their discussions archived on this page.
It's a strong year overall for the category. Randy Anderson favors "War Horse," and Nathan Cone also has a soft spot in his heart for the soaring themes of John Williams. But both Clare and Cone are also big fans of Ludovic Bource's work for the silent film "The Artist," and think the Academy will award it with the Oscar this Sunday. What is your pick for Best Score? Let us know in the comments section below, and be sure to follow along with Nathan Cone as he live-tweets during the program at http://www.twitter.com/TPRCinema.
Below, an interview with composer Ludovic Bource from The Hot Blog.
