The 8th edition of the World Soundtrack Awards will take place on October 18th 2008. We agree with The Playlist‘s assessment: It’s great to see Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood finally getting some recognition for his incredible There Will Be Blood score. Greenwood was left out of Oscar contention due to stupid technicalities.
