VOTE: Best Original Score in a Film [CLOSED]

Your FIRST choice will give you THREE points

Your SECOND choice will give you TWO points

Your THIRD choice will give you ONE point

This poll is to find what people think are the best original scores to a movie of all time. Eligibility rules aren’t really a thing so scores that weren’t eligible for the Oscars (ie There Will be Blood or Knives Out) are eligible here.

This poll is coinciding with other polls from Juror 8 and FilmFanWasTaken and the subsequent Film Awards. Here are the links so you can vote for those that you can vote for:

Juror 8 Best Actress
FilmFan Best Actor

My 3 picks for score are:

1. John Williams - The Empire Strikes Back
2. Alan Silvestri - Back to the Future
3. Hans Zimmer - Inception


Also, a little shameless self promotion, but if possible like this and the other polls by FilmFan and Juror 8.


This list is now closed.
