The Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday evening will provide a Best Original Score statuette to either Johann Johannsson for "The Theory Of Everything," Gary Yershon for "Mr. Turner," Hans Zimmer for "Interstellar," or Alexandre Desplat for one of his two nominated scores, "The Imitation Game" or "The Grand Budapest Hotel." David Garland presents some highlights from each of those scores, plus music from prior winners such as "Exodus," "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial," "The Best Years of Our Lives," "Up," and others.

Looking forward to the program tonight. It's an eclectic bunch of nominees this year.

My favorite score of the bunch is "The Imitation Game". I will be rooting for Mr. Desplat to win this year for either one of his scores.

"Theory of Everything" seems to be a favorite. I enjoyed that music quite a lot, although I was surprised that I recognized a key piece of music when I saw the film that was not original. The cue that plays during the finale and into the start of the end credits was originally composed by the Cinematic Orchestra for the film "The Crimson Wing".
