    Yes, it was announced minutes ago. Why don't they announce them all on TV though?

    Edit: Sherlock Homes? Frack me.

    I am glad that Sherlock Holmes made it into the nominees. It's much better than the over-rated Up, in my opinion. However I'm rooting for Avatar. That's the best of the lot.

    I'm 99.9% sure Up will win, but I'm glad to see HanZ get a nom after a long time.

    The battle is between Avatar and Up. I give the edge to Avatar because the film is still in the public's conscience plus it's a mega hit.

    IMHO, Michael SHOULD win this hands down. His score is EASILY the best of the bunch!

    The Hurt Locker came out of the blue. I guess it's nominated for everything else? Might just win, you know...

    Oh, I don't know...if we remember how the Academy loves to honour utterly unmemorable scores then Up definitely seems to be the winner (at least for me it belongs to the Santaolalla and Rahman type of scores inasmuch as it was completely unmemorable.)
    Sorry guys, just my opinion.

    I reckon The Hurt Locker will win for best score.

    My track record on predicting best score wins is utterly appalling by the way.

    It's nowhere near as good as Slumdog IMHO. I don't really get why Up is winning everything (score-wise). I might disagree with a lot of awards bodies' choices for film music but I can usually understand why they pick the things they do. I just can't see it with Up, which seemed unremarkable in the film and away from it. Why is it getting so much attention when Ratatouille - just as successful a film, and a much more memorable score - didn't?

    I agree Ratatouille is the better score compared to Up, but I do think Up deserves to win, particularly from that list. It deserves to win even just for that opening scene of Carl's life.

  1. Looking at the list on http://oscar.go.com/nominations/nominees only Avatar, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Hurt Locker and Sherlock Holmes is listed in "Music (Original Score)" category.

    Up isn't listed. Am I reading this wrong or have they got it wrong themselves?

    The Hurt Locker is a very good film....but an Oscar nomination for best original score? confused No way.

    Exactly my opinion too!

    I'm surprised that the more artsy stuff, like Korzeniowski's A SINGLE MAN, was overlooked.
    I am extremely serious.

    I guess you're reading it wrong because Up is listed when I click on the link.

    It just struck me that the only bit of Fantastic Mr Fox I remember after a couple of months not listening to it is the Morricone homage, and of course if you take the Morricone out of Sherlock Holmes then there's not much left. Interesting!

    It's probably my second favourite of the bunch, but it wouldn't get in my top 20 of the year.

    If it gets him better, more high profile assignments then that can only be good.

    Completely agree with you there.

    My bet goes to either The Hurt Locker or Up. Sorry Hans, I like the score, but the odds are against you.

    Hurt Locker may or may not sweep all of the Oscars, but voters would be more inclined to think positively toward a score for a serious war movie. Up, even though it was an okay score for an okay movie, it was a score for a Pixar film, and that does counts for a lot.

    Avatar might win too, despite its incredibly derivative score, if Avatar does win most of the technical awards.
