The score for Solo: A Star Wars Story was entered for consideration of an Oscar but it hasn’t even made it through the first round as it was disqualified by officials.
Solo: A Star Wars Story has had an unexpected year. Received well by a lot of fans, but equally slated by just as many. It performed poorly at the box office and was categorized as the worst Star Wars movie so far. Things haven’t improved for the standalone movie come the end of the year as the Oscar entry for the musical score was disqualified by officials.
As the end of the year approaches, and as we begin to turn our attention at all the great movies that were released throughout the year, the Oscars begin to sift through the pile of Oscar entries that have been made.

That process has now begun, and like any competition, officials immediately start with the entries that do not qualify in the first place, before they even consider who should be nominated for the awards.

This is the very first hurdle of the process and Solo: A Star Wars Story didn’t even make it through that initial round. Not because it wasn’t worthy. The score from John Powell with themes by John Williams was simply magnificent and deserves all the recognition it can get.
They failed because they did not get their entry in on time. Cut off for the entries was Nov. 15, and they failed to meet this deadline. Therefore being disqualified immediately for consideration.
It’s a very disappointing end to the year for Solo: A Star Wars Story. A year that has already been testing enough for the movie. But in this instant, I have no sympathy for them. There was no excuse for submitting their entry late, and in this instance, they brought this new low on themselves.
