14 Days Until Oscar.When will Thomas Newman win?

Thomas Newman is currently the most nominated composer to have never won the Oscar (and third in line of most nominations for a living artist without a win).Sci-fi hitPassengersmarks his 14th nomination.Unfortunately this year he's up against theLa La Landjuggernaut so he'll have to wait for #15.Or beyond.His cousin Randy Newman waited until his 16th before taking home the gold.

Thomas Newman is on his 14th nomination at age 61.His father won 9 Oscars but he's still waiting on his first.亚博主页

Composing for Hollywood is a family business in case that connection escaped you but their relatives didn't have to wait nearly as long...

Christmas Classics: Little Women (1994)

A few members of Team Experience will be sharing posts on their favorite Christmas movies.Here'sLynn Lee

You can have yourChristmas Storyor yourIt's a Wonderful Life.For me,my Christmas movie will always be Gillian Armstrong'sLittle Women,which took its bow Christmas Day,1994,and has kept a place in my heart ever since.Even though it faithfully adapts a literary classic,the movie's also a perfect encapsulation of the '90s: besides Winona Ryder,for whomLittle Womenwas something of a pet project,it also featured a very young Kirsten Dunst,fresh off her star-making turn inInterview With a Vampire,and Claire Danes,still in her Angela Chase days,making her big-screen debut,as well as a 20-year-old Christian Bale completing his transition from child to adult actor.

None of that,of course,meant anything to me when I first saw the film...

Oscar's Eligible Original Scores for 2015

Thomas Newman has 12 nominations but has never won.Can this be the year?The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (our much obsessed over AMPAS) has released the list of this year's original score contenders.The music branch is one of the most controversial laden in the Academy and they regularly make rulings that make people crazy.This year the most high profile scores that have been disqualified due to pre-existing material areThe RevenantandLove and Mercy.Now,a lot of films use pre-existing material  -- particularly if they part of franchises like this year'sCreed,Star Wars: The Force Awakens,The Man From UNCLE,which are all eligible -- it's just a question of "how much?"pre-existing they use.And that's where the annual controversies spring from,as when AMPAS letBabelslide (despite a score that had much much less original music than pre-existing music) and it won the category!

In a strange turn of events given Oscar darling Alexandre Desplat's typical yearly work load,he's not even the most eligible contender this year with only two scores.

The complete list of eligible scores (and more info) is after the jump.I've highlighted 15 my favorites but which areyourooting for?
