Disney Reveals 'For Your Consideration' Awards Soundtrack For 'The Last Jedi'

By: Benjamin Hart

Awards season is upon us once again, and the newest Star Wars film may be in contention to earn a few awards of its own. Star Wars: The Last Jedi has already been nominated for two BAFTA awards, and with the Oscars right around, even more nominations are imminent.

Around this time of year studios regularly launch "For Your Consideration" campaigns in order to advertise their best films of the year to members of awards voting groups, such as the Academy Awards. Disney is no different, this year presenting such films as Beauty And The Beast, Cars 3, Coco, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and Thor: Ragnarok, along with The Last Jedi on Included on the site are various resources related to each film, and Episode VIII's section has proven to be a particular goldmine of its own.

The front page suggests a variety of possible nominations for The Last Jedi, including Best Production Design, Best Costume Design, Best Sound Mixing, Best Visual Effects, and more. Rian Johnson is also suggested for Best Director, while Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley are proposed for Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively. In addition, a photo gallery with several brand new stills is included, as well production notes and a Q & A with the cast.

But by far the most exciting thing found on the site is the "score" page for The Last Jedi, which offers up John Williams' score for a possible Best Original Score nomination. Included is a "For Your Consideration" version of the film's soundtrack, which features additional and alternate tracks not included on the original soundtrack. (Side note: The option to download all the tracks was included at first, but unfortunately you are only allowed to stream them currently.) It's definitely a great listen for Star Wars music buffs! Direct links to all the aforementioned pages are listed below:

Best of luck to the cast and crew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi throughout the rest of this awards season!
