Myers Monday: H20 composer sings Bohemian Rhapsody to Oscar win


Years after scoring Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later, John Ottman is now an Oscar winner for his work on the Freddy Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.

It’s been a long time, but the Halloween series is champion once again…

Welcome back to Myers Monday — today we have music for your ears. According to Variety, John Ottman, who scored the 1998 Halloween revival sequel, H20, is now an Oscar winner. Now editing in the industry, Ottman took home the award for Achievement in Film Editing for Bohemian Rhapsody last night at the 91st Academy Awards. It may not be for music, but Ottman was apparently making sweet music in the editing room.

More from Halloween

While it’s been 20 years since Halloween: H20, Ottman’s win is still solid for fans of the franchise. Although much of his music was infamously axed by Dimension executives, it’s cool seeing someone who worked on this little Michael Myers series of ours go on to massive success in the business. What can I say? Haddonfield is stepping it up.

Almost exclusively cutting for now controversial filmmaker Bryan Singer (who was fired from Bohemian Rhapsody), Ottman has been working as a composer for years. Featuring over 50 scoring credits, including many popular horror flicks, the mutli-talented guy now has Oscar winner next to it for life. Now that is something only a select few people can say.  From everyone at 1428 Elm, congratulations John Ottman, you deserve it.

This has been another edition of Myers Monday. We’ll see guys next week in Smith’s Grove.
