Nightcrawler: James Newton Howard-Scored Film Receives Academy Award Nomination

Congratulations goes to Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy for his Academy Award nomination in Writing (Original Screenplay)!  This James Newton Howard-scored film received critical acclaim since its premiere at Toronto International Film Festival in September.

And speaking of James Newton Howard, film music critic “Scorekeeper” named his score for Nightcrawler one of the Top Ten Film Scores of 2014:

What I love most about Howard’s music for Nightcrawler is its ability to perfectly convey a strong degree of “creepy curiosity.” I’m also tickled that Howard’s main theme is actually quite victorious. It’s absolutely appropriate for a hero or principle protagonist which Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) certainly isn’t…or is he? That’s the philosophical revolving door at the heart of this film which makes it one of my favorites of the year.” – Brian Satterwhite
