Renee Bright

How does a composer manipulate our feelings during a film scene? Edmund Stone, host of the radio program The Score, explains the magic of film scoring through this year’s Oscar nominated Best Original Musical Scores. 

In time for the 92nd Academy Awards on Feb. 9, we’ll cover all of this year’s Best Original Score nominees: Oscar newcomer Hildur Guðnadóttir for “Joker,” 15-time nominee Thomas Newman for “1917,” his cousin, the great Randy Newman for “Marriage Story,” Alexandre Desplat for “Little Women” and, of course, John Williams for “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker,” marking his 52nd nomination.
