Score

Will Win: Life of Pi. Composer Mychael Danna is a favorite for his mix of Indian instruments, New Age style, and a traditional Western symphony.

Runner-Up: Argo, Alexandre Desplat

Surprise: Lincoln, John Williams

Song

Will Win: Skyfall. Adele and Paul Epworth’s title theme is a massive hit, and licensed to kill at the show — which will also feature a 007 tribute to commemorate the superspy’s 50th cinematic anniversary.

Runner-Up: “Suddenly,” Les Miserables — music by Claude-Michel Schönberg; lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer and Alain Boublil

Surprise: “Everybody Needs a Best Friend,” Ted — music by Walter Murphy; lyrics by Seth MacFarlane

Sound Editing

Will Win: Skyfall. We feel the world of 007 especially acutely thanks to the aural effects created by Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers.

Runner-Up: Life of Pi, Eugene Gearty and Philip Stockton

Surprise: Argo, Erik Aadahl and Ethan Van der Ryn

Sound Mixing

Will Win: Les Miserables. No audio challenge was greater this year: blending together live-sung performances in this musical will give Andy Nelson, Mark Paterson and Simon Hayes the edge.

Runner-Up: Life of Pi, Ron Bartlett, D.M. Hemphill and Drew Kunin

Surprise: Skyfall, Scott Millan, Greg P. Russell and Stuart Wilson
