There is no official list circulated by the Academy, though a lot of sites obtain copies of the Reminder Lists sent to Academy members, so it may be out there somewhere.

Some of you may have already known this, but I was quite shocked.

Of the 248 films eligible for Best Picture this year, only 77 are eligible for a Best Score nomination.

Does anyone know if they make the list of eligible score available online like they do with FX and song?

Everyone keeps raving about it, but there were moments of Tron: Legacy's score that reminded me of The Dark Knight's score.

After watching Tron: Legacy, my number one is Reznor & Ross and my number two is Daft Punk. Awesome score. No chance for a nom. But amazing.

After listening to The Tourist, I fully expect James Newton Howard to grab his third consecutive unsuccessful nomination and his ninth overall. It's very slick.

Anne Dudley won for The Full Monty.

...And now I'm realizing that this was already answered and far far better indeed. While checking the posts I add the comment without checking if anyone had addressed this.

For better or for worse, these are the movies that I can see filling in the slots as to where Alice in Wonderland and Black Swan are (though I already feel A.R. Rahman is in for 127 Hours):

- Never Let Me Go; Rachel Portman
- The Next Three Days; Danny Elfman & Alberto Iglesias
- The Tourist; James Newton Howard
- Eat Pray Love; Dario Marianelli
- The Tempest; Elliot Goldenthall
- Biutiful; Gustavo Santololallo
- The Illusionist; Sylvan Chomet
- Secretariat; Nick Glennie-Smith
- Robin Hood; Marc Streitenfeld

But poor Clint Mansell. What does this guy have to do after being shafted for the past decade, despite having composed memorable scores for Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain and Moon?

Never Let Me Go sounds like a perfect Where the fuck did that come from? nominee.

It's hardly a WTF nominee if you've actually seen it. The score is just hauntingly gorgeous. I think Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield showing up in Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor (respectively) would be much more earth-shattering.

I just meant it got mediocre reviews and went away really quickly. On the whole people tend to predict Best Original Score based on the Golden Globe nominees, what's getting nominated for Best Picture, and whatever animation or blockbuster had an especially pretty score. Never Let Me Go doesn't fit that bill. I'm definitely writing it in, and it further encourages me to check it out. Although I did not like Mark Romanek's first film One Hour Photo, his music videos are astonishing.

The score to Never Let Me Go is lovely, and a bit of a change of pace for Portman -- usually I can recognize a Portman score at the outset of a film, but I didn't know this was her work until the end credits.

If Never Let Me Go still has one chance at a nomination, I'd say it's this one. And I agree with flipp -- for anyone who's seen the movie, a nomination for this fairly dominant score wouldn't be anything like a shock.

Many noted the score in the film's initial reviews. Plus the Portman name is likely to attract interest from a branch that has not infrequently nominated based on high-profile composer rather than overall strength of film.

I have a spreadsheet with all the winners and nominees with columns for each category, plus a gender track so I can keep track of male and female nominees and so forth. I had to collect specific film data separately, but that wasn't too hard with imdb (though Karlin/Kymry isn't on imdb anywhere).

Along with its cinematography, I Am Love pretty much coasts on its John Adams music. However, it's not an original score but a collage of previously-composed pieces. Don't expect it to be nominated.

So it's not an original score? That's good to know.

Never Let Me Go sounds like a perfect Where the fuck did that come from? nominee.
