Favorite: Jóhann Jóhannsson, The Theory of Everything
Other nomination predicitions:
1) Alexandre Desplat, The Grand Budapest Hotel
2) Alexandre Desplat, The Imitation Game
3) Steven Price, Fury
4) Hans Zimmer, Interstellar
Despite Jóhannsson rising to the top as the favorite in his category, the rest of the field is wide open. Alexandre Desplat appears to be a sure lock—but for which film? He also scored Unbroken and Godzilla in 2014. Birdman composer Antonio Sanchez may also bump one of Desplat’s noms or Steven Price off the list later on down the road.
