* AwardSnub: ZigZagged. Williams's five UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s are more than enough to do any career proud. He also holds the record for most Academy Award nominations of any living individual, with 50 [[note]]most recently for ''Film/TheForceAwakens''[[/note]]. While even a nomination is an honor, FridgeLogic dictates that this means he's gone home empty-handed ''45 times''. Ouch?
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: You ''do'' realize just who we're talking about here, right?! (He even has [[AwesomeMusic/JohnWilliams his own Awesome Music page]].)
* EarWorm: The first time you hear any of his themes, they ''will'' get in your head.
* GatewaySeries: A lot of people get into film soundtracks and classical music through him.
* NamesTheSame: Not to be confused with the acclaimed classical ''guitarist'' [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Williams_(guitarist) John Williams]]. Nor with any of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Williams_(disambiguation) dozens of other eminent people]] with the admittedly not uncommon name.
