They are all wonderful composers, John Williams would have to be my favorite by far. But for this I want Desplat to win. :)

Well, they have not been nominated YET. This is a very long list right now. I loved the score for this film, yet could not ignore the fact that the most memorable points in it were the stings harkening back to Williams’ score, and that might be the case for the people deciding on the final list as well.
