Weekly commentary (updated November 7, 2023): Renowned composer Thomas Newman has been nominated for 15 Academy Awards, tying him with fellow composer Alex North for the most without a win. These losses include “American Beauty” (1999), “Road to Perdition” (2022), “Finding Nemo” (2003), “WALL-E” (2008) and “1917” (2019). There’s also the dual-title year of “The Shawshank Redemption” (1994) and “Little Women.” As soon as possible, right?

In Pixar’s “Elemental,” he captures the essence of a story through music, which has made him one of the most sought-after composers in the industry.

He will battle it out with Academy Award winner Ludwig Göransson for his explosive work on “Oppenheimer“, and the growing feeling for the late Robbie Robertson, who composed “Killers of the Flower Moon.” There are also other competing animated films such as Daniel Pemberton’s breathtaking chords to “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.”

It will be a difficult race to organize throughout the season.
