John Williams Wins Another Award

2005 Broadcast Film Critics Awards chose John Williams the winner of Best Composer for Memoirs of a Geisha...though oddly enough didn't turn his nomination for the same film for best soundtrack into a win....Walk the Line won.

Neat.

I love that film, now I know why. It may also be that it's a great plot has good dialogue and has Zhang Ziyi. How fabulous.

Never saw it. I was unaware that Williams did the music for it. That is great that he got another award he is truly amazing.

Did I mention it had Zhang Ziyi. (sweat rolls down his face, he then abruptly faints on the keyboard). yfhvffjuhrjegvbfe. Sorry my head hit the keys.

I've not seen the film yet but I received the book several years ago as a birthday gift and couldn't put it down. I fell in love with the story. Interesting, but cool, that they chose Zhang Ziyi for the role of a Japanese Geisha. hehe

This was the score Williams was working on in lieu of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

How funny, get a Mandarin Chinese to play an English speaking Geisha. Now that's genus.

Is JW up for an Oscar on Memoirs of a Geisha? They gave him the shaft on ROTS, which isn't unexpected.

Indeed. I think you meant 'gen'i'us'

The nominations will be announced on January 31. We'll see then.

Aye, we dont know for sure he's been snubbed for ROTS... though yes he likely will be snubbed.

Nice to see ROTS is in final running (likely nominated) for sound editing, visual fx and makeup.
Im betting it also will get nominated for costumes and sound mixing.
Thatll be 5, which if it swept, could end up being the top winner haha, imagine that.
That'd so stick it to those stuffy jerks in hollywood

Ive been looking around at alot of poles and predictions and a surprising amount have Lucas listed as a "dark horse" for best director!! That end-of-an-era thinking that he could get a shocking nomination for the whole SW-body of work. Not likely but id be thrilled to see that.
