I was meant to moan about this yesterday but i was too tired to even write anything. Ended up posting a picture instead and had an early night.

Thomas Newman has been nominated 12 times for an Oscar and has yet to win anything, despite making some of the most important film music. What is wrong with your ears?
Some of these films would never have been as well received, without his trademark sounds. Shawshank Redemption without the “Brooks was here” piece for example. That scene would have not been so memorable without his music.

It still shocks me to see another nomination without a win! sort it out Hollywood!
