The Academy’s shortlist for best original score featured a slew of titles that have already garnered buzz this season, including “Da 5 Bloods,” “The Little Things,” “Mank,” “Minari” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” among others. Horror film “La Llorona,” Mads Mikkelsen-starring “Another Round” and documentary “Collective” are in consideration for best international feature film.
Top contenders include “Nomadland,” “Minari,” “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “Promising Young Woman.” Chloé Zhao’s drama could earn up to eight nominations, while the others have a chance at up to seven. The critically acclaimed directorial debut of Regina King, “One Night in Miami,” and the rising momentum of Darius Marder’s “Sound of Metal” put the titles in contention, but their standings in the race are not yet clear.
The Oscars ceremony will take place in Los Angeles on April 25 at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT and will air on ABC. It will be produced by Jesse Collins, Stacey Sher and Steven Soderbergh.
