Did everything listed on this page win an Academy Award? As nothing in the page says otherwise, should people assume so? Or perhaps is the first the winner and others nominees? If so, the article should say so. Wondering simply, -- Infrogmation 17:23, 16 Oct 2004 (UTC)
I've made a minor change, which I also made months ago. Don't know why I noticed it to begin with. In the category of 1981 nominations, Alex North was the composer for the movie Dragonslayer, not Jerry Goldsmith. I tried linking directly to the IMDB page, but the link does not work, so look it up yourself. Or even better, see the movie, it's quite good. smb 07/18/2005 10:22 EST.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:03, 19 July 2005 (UTC)
What about Henry Mancini on the multiple wins/nominations section?
I counted from this same article 7 nominations and 2 awards for Henry Mancini and he does not appear on the list of the multiple wins/nominations section. May be his name should be added.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:52, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Why was there no nomination for Leonard Bernstein and West Side Story or no win for him for "Original Music Score". He writes the entire show and the scribes win for it?? I wonder if Bernstein's complete omission had something to do with his being gay? WSS is possibly the very finest musical score in history.Dcrasno (talk) 20:39, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Leonard Bernstein was previously nominated in 1954 for his film score for "On the Waterfront". So there was no "gay" blacklist against him. Bernstein composed the music for the stage version, but did not work on the film version so that is why that he is ineligible. Only the orchestrators, composers, arrangers, etc. who actually worked on adapting the music for the film's score get nominated. Andrew Lloyd Weber adapted his own music for his films (Jesus Christ Superstar, etc), so that's why he can get nominated. I'm sure that if Bernstein had actually worked in arranging/adapting for the film version that he would have been nominated as well. This would be the same as if Jane Austen were to share an Oscar with Emma Thompson for the screenplay that Thompson wrote. Austen wrote the entire novel, but someone else wins for it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kaneshirojj (talk • contribs) 23:47, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
Jan A.P. Kaczmarek missing from list
Is there a reason why Jan A.P. Kaczmarek is missing from the list of Academy Award winners? Later on he is named as winning the Academy Award for Finding Neverland (which he indeed did).— Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:08, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
Thomas Newman (Living Nominations
I Believe Thomas Newman needs to be removed from the Nominations w/No wins list. He won for "Skyfall" if I'm not mistaken. Can someone verify and make the edit? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:8:8580:8B0:9DDE:3A1:3494:327C (talk) 23:52, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

Best Original Musical content duplication
The "Scoring of a Musical Picture" and "Original Song Score and Adaptation" awards are documented on the Academy Award for Best Original Musical page. Does this information need to be repeated on this page? I would like to cut it, and reformat the whole list in the same style as the "1990s" section, for better article consistency.
