The run-up to this year's Baftas have proved unusually controversial, but what will actually happen on the night? 'The Guardian' thinks Alexandre Desplat will win 'Best music' for 'Little Women.'

Sony Music's release of LITTLE WOMEN (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK) with music by Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and GRAMMY® Award-winning composer ALEXANDRE DESPLAT was recorded in New York City under the leadership of Desplat, who conducted a chamber orchestra to perform his original compositions, the score serves as a sonic companion to the film's coming-of-age narrative. Directed by Greta Gerwig, the Sony Pictures film captures the life of four young girls on their path to adulthood.

"Working with him has been a dream," adds Greta Gerwig of working with Desplat on the score.  "From the first sketches he sent me to listening to him record the glorious score with an orchestra in New York, every step of the process has been a joy. He has taught me how to work with a composer: how to listen, how to give notes, how to wait for it to develop, how to step away, how to dive in. I am a better filmmaker for having worked with him, and I sincerely hope that it is not the last time."
