How does everyone in the forum feel about these two longtime veterans of the music and film biz finally receiving their due? Randy Newman waited through 16 nominations(!) over the past 2 decades. Howard Shore has been around just as long and got his big break as the 1st music director for "Saturday Night Live" way back in 1975! They've basically been the Susan Lucci's of the film music biz for as long as I can remember. Seeing them win tonight was such a big deal, even Oscarcast host Whoopi Goldberg and fellow nominee John Williams were visibly juiced on camera about it!
