Congrats, way to go! Still a LOT of work to be done. No women nominated in ORIGINAL SCORE - FEATURE FILM or ORIGINAL FILM - ANIMATED FILM or ORIGINAL FILM - SCI-FI/FANTASY or ORIGINAL SCORE - HORROR FILM. Putting so many great woman up with other bigger known composers (guys) for film/TV/game projects... who are the producers/directors going to pick? How do we get people to pick these talented woman? Do you want an ice cream sandwich or do you want a deluxe ice cream sunday with all the fixens? What is more appealing to the folks hiring these great composers? Who would you pick? Bragging rights, "OH MY GOSH, we just got the composer of - - - -." But this other person's music we feel might have been a better fit. Woman in many instances do not have the sparkly credits that the higher tier composers have. Thank the heavens Hildur got her shot and Pinar and Rachel years ago and Anne. We just need more miracles to happen in our industry. Maybe with the concert hall we are just so used to seeing men conduct that when we think of orchestral music, most just have in their head a man. Who knows, I don't know. Food for thought, but a lot more work needs to be done 🙂
