Justin Hurwitz has earned another Academy Award nomination for best original score for his work on the film Babylon.
This is the fourth Oscar nomination for the composer known for his jazz-oriented work with director Damien Chazelle. In 2017, he won the award for best original score and won one of two nods for best original song for his work on La La Land.
Earlier this month, Hurwitz’s Babylon soundtrack won the Golden Globe for best original score.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be recognized by the Academy for the Babylon score,” Hurwitz said in a statement. “As soon as Damien [Chazelle] had a script for his wild and beautiful movie, I started a three-year search for very special musicians who could bring their unique talent and flair to the music. I want to thank the musicians because without them, the Babylon musical performances and score wouldn’t be what they are.”
Written and directed by Chazelle, Babylon stars Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt and chronicles the rise and fall of multiple characters during Hollywood’s transition from silent to sound films in the late 1920s.
