2014 Best Score Winner

The Grand Budapest Hotel

If you look back over the history of the Golden Stakes you find that this category generally rewards outsiders rather than the film music establishment, but I gave out the award to Hans Zimmer last year and this year it’s going to Alexandre Desplat, so maybe that’s changing in a big way.  Most of the nominated scores here could be called “moody” and that’s true of the score for The Grand Budapest Hotel as well, but it also happens to be a lot more fun to listen to.  It’s probably the most melodic of these scores and it also does the best job of establishing a memorable theme.
