Day Seven: Best Score, 1968

The category is - Best Music, Original Score for a Motion Picture (Not a Musical). The nominees are:

The Fox
Lalo Schifrin
second of four nominations in this category; Grammy Award Nominee for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture

The Lion in Winter
John Barry
previous winner, second of six nominations in this category; BAFTA Award Winner for Outstanding Film Music; Golden Globe nominee for Best Original Score

Planet of the Apes
Jerry Goldsmith
fourth of 16 nominations in this category

The Shoes of the Fisherman
Alex North
tenth of 14 nominations in this category; Golden Globe Winner for Best Original Score

The Thomas Crown Affair
Michel Legrand
second of three nominations in this category; BAFTA Award nominee for Outstanding Film Music, Golden Globe nominee for Best Original Score


The Oscar winner: John Barry, his second win in this category (third overall). He was a no-show, and co-presenter Gregory Peck (with Rosalind Russell) made a gay joke.

You may remember Roz also made a gay joke while presenting Best Director. Of course, '68 had been quite a year for "gay" cinema, something we'll get into further next week, I suspect. Meanwhile, my vote:


Tomorrow, the nominees for Best Adapted Screenplay: The Lion in Winter, The Odd CoupleOliver!Rachel, Rachel, and Rosemary's Baby.
