Jonny Greenwood nominated for an Oscar for 'Best Original Score'

Jonny Greenwood, the guitarist of Radiohead synomynous with the band’s huge success and eccentricity, can now add ‘Oscar-Nominated’ to his CV… if he has room of course.

Not content with dominating the indie scene over the last few years Jonny Greenwood took to score films recently. Taking his talent to the door of Paul Thomas to help score the director’s Phantom Thread.

It’s Greenwood’s first Oscar nom after his work for 2008’s There Will Be Blood was deemed ineligible.

All of the 2018 Best Original Score nominees can be found below. Jonny Greenwood was also nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his work on Phantom Thread, but lost to Alexandre Desplat (The Shape of Water). Something many predict will happen again.

2018 Academy Award for Best Original Score:

Carter Burwell: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Alexandre Desplat: The Shape of Water
Jonny Greenwood: Phantom Thread
John Williams: Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Hans Zimmer: Dunkirk
