Can you believe it’s been a year since The Nice Guys was out in theaters? Shane Black’s 1970s action-comedy starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling was the buddy film of the summer! And what 1970s-era film wouldn’t be complete without a sizzling and funky soundtrack to boot.
Listen to the score by John Ottman (X-Men: Apocalypse, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) and David Buckley (The Town, TV’s “The Good Wife”) and step into the time machine that is the various artists soundtrack, featuring songs by The Temptations, Kool & the Gang, Earth Wind & Fire, Al Green, Bee Gees, America and more.

Among those topping her list are Nicholas Britell (Moonlight) as Breakthrough Composer of the Year and The Nice Guys (John Ottman and David Buckley) for Best Original Score for a Comedy Film.
