BAFTA Video Game Score Nominees

BAFTA Video Game Score Nominees

I love the fact that the BRITISH ACADEMY OF FILM AND TELEVISION ARTS also honors video games. This year Infinity Ward's CALL OF DUTY 4: MODERN WARFARE dominates with some 15 nominations. I guess it must have been a pretty good game. Maybe I should pick it up. (Just jokes ... I lost many hours last year to that game.)

One nomination Call of Duty did NOT get is for BEST ORIGINAL SCORE. That honor goes to the following titles:

“Assassin’s Creed” - Jesper Kyd
Jade Raymond, Patrice Desilets, Claude Langlais
Ubisoft Montreal/Ubisoft Entertainment

“Dead Space” - Jason Graves
Development Team
Electronic Arts/Electronic Arts

“Fable II” - Russell Shaw (theme by Danny Elfman)
Development Team
Lionhead Studios/Microsoft Game Studios

“Fallout 3” - Inon Zur
Todd Howard, Emil Pagliarulo, Istvan Pely
Bethesda Game Studio/Bethesda Softworks Europe

“LittleBigPlanet” - Daniel Pemberton
Kenneth Young, Mark Healey, Leo Cubbin
Media Molecule & XDev Studio Europe/Sony Computer Entertainment

“Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots” - Harry Gregson-Williams
Kojima Productions/Konami Digital Entertainment

If the list seems a little weird, that's because nominees can go back as far as October 2007. I'm excited to see Daniel Pemberton's work for LITTLEBIGPLANET finally get some recognition. So what do you think of theses noms? Do you think other associations, like The Oscars, should start of game-division as BAFTA has?

  1. That would be cool if the oscars did video games. It would be more recognition then they get from websites and G4, but it would go against all the other awards the oscars give out (i.e. no awards to action/ fantasy movies). They'd just give awards to dramatic/romance games.
