Oscar Records: John Williams–50 Oscar Nominations

Composer John Williams, who already has 50 Oscar nominations, more than any other living person, could earn one or even two more nominations, if he gets recognition for The Post and/or Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

“The Post” is Williams’ 28th film for Steven Spielberg, a collaboration  that began with the director’s “The Sugarland Express” in 1974.

“The Last Jedi” is the composer’s eighth “Star Wars” movie, ever since the first George Lucas franchise feature in 1977.

Williams, who’s 85, is marking his 60th year composing for TV and films.

Williams’ earliest screen credits were in 1958, for TV’s “Playhouse 90” and a low-budget drive-in movie titled “Daddy-O.”
