The nominated scores and their composers are:
- The Grand Budapest Hotel, Alexander Desplat
- The Imitation Game, Alexander Desplat
- Interstellar, Hans Zimmer
- Mr Turner, Gary Yershon
- The Theory of Everything, Johann Johansson
It’s the first time Alexander Desplat has been nominated for two awards, having been nominated six times in previous years. His scores for The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Imitation Game make him perhaps the most likely recipient of the award.
