For the first time since 1979, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced shortlists for both the Original Song and Original Score categories. To no one’s real surprise, selections from “Mary Poppins Returns,” “A Star Is Born” and “If Beale Street Could Talk” made some noise on their respective lists, with ‘Poppins’ making both. Some interesting surprises included a score shortlist nod for “Avengers: Infinity War” by Alan Silvestri, the music to the sci-fi mind-bender “Annihilation” by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury and the score to “The Death of Stalin.” On songs, Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke made the shortlist cut for his haunting “Suspiria” tunes as did Kendrick Lamar and SZA‘s Grammy-nominated track “All The Stars” from “Black Panther.”

The films shortlist for Original Score are as follows:



“Avengers: Infinity War”

Ballad - Buster - Scruggs

“The Ballad of Buster Scruggs”

“Black Panther”



“Crazy Rich Asians”

Death - Stalin
