Oscar Nominees 2015, Best Original Score (Part 1 of 6): Alexandre Desplat’s The Grand Budapest Hotel — 8 Comments

  1. Hi Mark,

    Wonderful analysis, as ever, and so very interesting and logical. This has engaged my interest in a film I otherwise wouldn’t have bothered to see. Thanks!

  2. hi,

    thank you so much, very clear and to the point analyses. maybe a lord of the rings 1 to 3 analyses would be interesting? keep up the good work!

    • Thanks, Bram. Lord of the Rings is certainly on my to-do list. It’s just so much music that I haven’t had the time to analyze it in depth (which would go beyond merely pointing out the leitmotifs, a task that Doug Adams has done quite well).

  3. Hi Mark,

    Thank you so much for doing the Oscar nominees again!
    A wonderful analysis as others have pointed out, Desplat surely has a good chance of finally winning an Oscar this year

    • Thank you for the supportive words, Paul. If not this year, I have a feeling Desplat will earn an Oscar in the relatively near future, given that he’s becoming a regular in the list of nominees. It’s always solid music.

  4. I was looking for something to help me to understand this score better, and this blog was super helpful! I have always been a fan of Desplat’s ever since his collaboration with Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox! Thank you so much!
