The film was nominated for an additional four Oscars: best picture, actress in a leading role (Felicity Jones as Hawking’s wife, Jane), original score (Jóhannsson) and adapted screenplay.
Two-time Oscar nominee Jóhannsson also garnered an original score Academy Award nomination for Sicario. He additionally earned two Grammy Award nominations for best score soundtrack for visual media (The Theory of Everything and Arrival).
