Episode 52: Fifth Annual Oscar Preview: Best Original Score 2019

In this year's Oscar preview Glenn & Scott cover the distinctly different moods expressed in the scores for Joker, Marriage Story, 1917, Little Women, and The Rise of Skywalker — a Star Wars score by John Williams, something never before discussed on this podcast. In part 2 they discuss the one 2019 score Scott actually liked, some highlights Glenn found noteworthy, and the best single track from any score in the last five years. Glenn feels the joy of eucatastrophe, while Scott searches desperately for melodies.
