John Williams and Martin Scorsese just made Oscars history

Martin Scorsese has earned his tenth Academy Award nomination for Best Director with his film “Killers of the Flower Moon,” bringing him close to the record held by William Wyler, who had 12 nominations before his death in 1981.

Scorsese expressed his gratitude for the recognition, stating, “It’s deeply gratifying to receive this acknowledgment from the Academy, for myself and my collaborators on ‘Killers of the Flower Moon.’” He highlighted the unique experience of making the film and working with the Osage community to bring attention to an overlooked American tragedy. Scorsese also expressed regret that Robbie Robertson, co-founder of The Band and a collaborator on the film, did not live to see his work acknowledged.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” received a total of 10 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role for Lily Gladstone, Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Robert De Niro, and Best Original Score. The film faces competition in the Best Original Score category from the legendary composer John Williams, who earned his 49th Oscar nomination for his work on “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.” At 91, Williams is now the oldest nominee in a competitive award category and holds more Academy Award nominations than any living person, with a total of 54 when including original song. The late Walt Disney holds the overall record with 59 Oscar nominations, as noted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
