    That's why I chose my words carefully and said "I think" and "perhaps". My brain just tells me that Wall-E is a "better" score, but my heart tells me I prefer Bolt. Music sure is abstract!?

    Well, i think there's a prevailing thingy all over film music fans' heads during the last 10 years that everything Thomas Newman produces is better than most; not too sure that's the case anymore; at least not with "Everything" he produces.

    From what I've heard so far, my favourite scores of the year are Kung Fu Panda, Horton, Defiance and Bolt. Not much sad

    I've enjoyed quite a lot from this year actually. I think people easily forget what has been released since January 1st to now. I know I do. (And not necessarily because the scores themselves have been forgettable. Just that I am.)

    Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed a lot of scores this year too. But I can't find myself returning to many, they were nice but not "outstanding". But then again there are a lot of scores this year I haven't listened to. Who knows... wink

    Well there you go then. I've heard, in relative terms, a fair few scores from this year, and I'm not disappointed... and there's still much I haven't heard or even given my full attention to. Powell's not the only composer of 2008 remember. wink

    Indeed; why not open your ears to more stuff out there? There's surely lots of good music to be appreciated as well as Powell and the lot; Desplat for once, and the gorgeously pleasant and uplifting score from PHILIPPE ROMBI on BIENVENUE CHEZ LES CH'TIS come to mind now.

    As well as Pino Donaggio's OORLOGSWINTER, Carter Burwell's BURN AFTER READING and IN BRUGES, Jablonsky's GEARS OF WAR and the amazing Age of Conan_Hyborian Adventures by Knut Avenstroup Haugen, Paul Cantelon's THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL and ADRIAN JOHNSTON'S beautiful BRIDESHEAD REVISITED, Stargate Continuum from Joel Goldsmith, the new WORLD OF WARCRAFT score which is EPIC, Roque Banos' the oxford murders, CEZARY SKUBISZEWSKI's NIGHT, Defiance and THE HAPPENING, Preisner's ANONYMA, HISAISHI's Ponyo, Horner's the boy in the stripped pyjamas, KANTELINEN's ARN and MONGOL, and there's a lot i am forgetting for sure PLUS there's a lot more upcoming 'till Xmas.

    How many of these have most people heard?

    Brian Easdale won an Oscar for his score to the 1948 film The Red Shoes and the score has never been released.

    Can anyone think of any other nominated scores that never had a release?

    Well the studios usually send fat promo CDs to the awards' judges, so I guess they don't care how it's available to the public (and the sh|tty MP3-only release does count as "soundtrack album").

    Shouldn't that category read:

    "Best Score Soundtrack for Motion Picture that finished in the top 3 grossing films in 2010, top grossing film of 2009 and Sherlock Holmes (finished 8 in top grossing films of 2009)"?

    Did they actually see anything outside their local multiplex?
