Best Score nominees images
The Academy Award Best Score nominees are 'Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens,' 'Bridge of Spies," 'Sicario,' 'Carol,' and 'The Hateful Eight.'

It’s the week of the Academy Awards and we’ll try to help you get a leg up on your office Oscar pool with WKAR’s afternoon classical music host Jamie Paisley about the five Best Score nominees, including the 50th Oscar nomination for John Williams.

WKAR’s resident film buff, Jamie Paisley, who is also our afternoon classical music host, transforms this week’s Staff Music Pick of the Week into an exploration of his favorite Oscar category, Best Original Score.

In his opinion, this is a great year for Best Score contenders, not least of which is John Williams' historic 50th nomination.
