See how her eyes just light up when she reads the winner's name aloud! And dig how that fine-ass Mr. Hancock is adorably nervous at first, then delivers an elegant tribute to Jazz, "this American-born artform" for which "praise has long been overdue".
But, you know, I have my own tastes - or lack thereof, depending on how you feel about this category! The nominees for Best Original Score, in the reverse order of how I'd rank them; bottom's up, in other words. After the jump....
I don't get jazz? Especially since much of the score consists of riffs on previously published music, so... I don't know.
It's the second-best thing about the movie (Gene Hackman number one!), and it's known as one of the Best Scores and Best Sports Scores ever. I can't quite cotton to it.
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Tomorrow - the nominees for Best Actress! And they run the gamut: Sigourney Weaver brings the action in Aliens; Marlee Matlin is sensual and knowing in Children of a Lesser God; Sissy Spacek's dark comic gifts are on display in Crimes of the Heart; Jane Fonda boozily centers a thriller in The Morning After; Kathleen Turner travels through time in Peggy Sue Got Married. Yowza!
