68: Seventh Annual Oscar Preview: Best Original Score 2021

March 21, 2022

It is Oscar season, and despite the Academy banning the category from the telecast the Best Original Score award still exists, and Glenn & Scott are here to cover the nominees. After already examining Hans Zimmer's Dune score in the previous episode, now they review Encanto by Germaine Franco, The Power of the Dog by Jonny Greenwood, Don't Look Up by Nicholas Britell, and Parallel Mothers by Alberto Iglesias. Along the way they discuss how each score is helped or limited by its film, how french horns represent toxic masculinity, whether the Academy should rethink how it awards scores all together, and recent reporting about one of the nominees. Plus Scott declares war on fade-outs, Glenn shows ignorance of baseball terminology, and they digress into discussing the current state of the Star Wars franchise.
