BAFTA Nominations: Music

The British Academy Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Award nominations for Music are:

    The CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON
    * Alexandre Desplat

    The DARK KNIGHT
    * Hans Zimmer
    * James Newton Howard

    MAMMA MIA!
    * Benny Andersson
    * Björn Ulvaeus

    SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE
    * A. R. Rahman

    WALL-E
    * Thomas Newman

For those that know me, there will be no surprise that I am not cheering for Mamma Mia!. The music is entertaining, or it was back in the day and the film and stage production were a huge hit in the UK. However, as fun as it might be, it doesn't fit in the category for best film music. Dark Knight is another film that I feel ought to be given the pass in terms of music. I hope to see Benjamin Button this next weekend and will probably take in both Wall-E and Slumdog again just to refresh myself with the music.
