Not only does legendary composer John Williams have a cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but director J.J. Abrams states that every single item in that scene has been very purposefully chosen to represent the 52 academy award nominated film scores by the maestro.

This behind-the-scenes video touches on a few of them but I and many others would like to know what are the corresponding items for John Williams' 52 Oscar Nominations?


visuals (screenshots, timestamps, etc.) are preferred but not required
