THE BATMAN: Fans Really Aren't Happy Michael Giacchino's Epic Score Has Been Snubbed By The Oscars

It's been confirmed that The Batman won't be receiving a nomination for Michael Giacchino's score at next year's Academy Awards, and you'd best believe that DC fans aren't happy. Read on for details...

Yesterday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science released the shortlists for a number of smaller and second-tier categories for next year's Oscars. There were a few talking points, though nothing quite on the level of "Best Film" and "Best Director" quite this early one.

However, while votes will now be cast to decide who makes the cut when nominations are announced on January 24, many movie fans are already fuming about one massive snub. 

The Batman, which was released back in March to overwhelmingly positive reviews, has so far been recognised for "Best Makup and Hairstyling," "Best Sound," and "Best Visual Effects." However, the DC Comics adaptation has not been shortlisted for "Best Original Score."

Those that did make the cut include All Quiet on the Western Front, Avatar: The Way of Water, Babylon, The Banshees of Inisherin, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Devotion, Don't Worry Darling, Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, Glass Onion, Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio, Nope, She Said, The Woman King, and Women Talking

This is, simply put, staggering. Oscar-winner Michael Giacchino's score was nothing short of phenomenal, with his theme for Robert Pattinson's Dark Knight among the best we've heard. His work throughout was terrific, though, and we're really not sure any of the movies listed above were better. 

It's been a busy year for the composer as he also scored Jurassic World: Dominion, Lightyear, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Werewolf By Night. Giacchino made his directorial debut working on the latter, but it's clear now he won't nab another Academy Award in March for The Batman or any other project he spent 2022 working on.

"Delivering the definitive take on the World’s Greatest Detective," we said in our review earlier this year, "The Batman is a sweeping, cinematic masterpiece that’s both DC’s best film and one of the most captivating, relentless, and unforgettable comic book movies ever made."

Fans on social media are unhappy about the snub, but how do you feel about it? Share your thoughts below.
