#FilmNominations2014 : Best Soundtrack


Only_Lovers_Left_Alive_3

In the soundtrack category several notable works deserve to be mentioned, from Johann Johannsson’s gorgeous score for ‘The Theory of Everything’ to Hans Zimmer’s overpowering ‘Interstellar; ‘Boyhood’ and its excellent use of indie classics as one of the key elements to help underlining the pass of the twelve years it took to make, from Coldplay to Arcade Fire, or the ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ 80’s mixtape, part of its storyline. Also noteworthy are some films that dealt with a music subject, such as the jazz drumming of ‘Whiplash’ and the indie band shenanigans of ‘Frank’.

But the ones that were finally shortlisted are Antonio Sánchez’s energetic drums, highlighting the rush and anxiety-led mood of ‘Birdman’; Trenz Reznor & Atticus Ros, teaming up again with David Fincher for the diverse and tense score of ‘Gone Girl’; Jonny Greenwood’s eclectic work for ‘Inherent Vice’, ranging from laidback Californian vibes to alert-inducing krautrock; the darkly goth vibes and intoxicating atmospheres of Jozef Van Wissem and SQÜRL in ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’; the exquisite work of Alexandre Desplat for ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ and the truly disturbing score Mica Levi wrote for ‘Under the Skin’.
