With both The Post and Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the running this Oscar season, composer John Williams, who has 50 Academy nominations already to him name, and more than any other living person, could earn a 51st or even 52nd nomination!

Both films stem from working relationships that date back to the 1970s, both of them studded with awards recognition and success. The Post is Williams’ 28th film for Steven Spielberg, a partnership that began with the director’s The Sugarland Express in 1974. The Last Jedi is the composer’s eighth Star Wars movie, having launched the original George Lucas space franchise in 1977.

The article goes on to discuss how different the two scores are, and features nuggets of importation about the music from Williams, Rian Johnson (writer/director of The Last Jedi), and others.

The article also goes on to talk about Episode IX, confirming what Kathleen Kennedy told us in 2013 at Star Wars Celebration Europe in Essen, Germany — that John Williams would score all three sequels.

As for his future with Star Wars movies, Williams confirms that he told director J.J. Abrams that he will do Episode IX next year. “I would very much like to complete that,” he says.

The Oscar nominations are announced on Monday February 5th.
