Find out which films are in the running for the Oscar...
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced that the following 104 films are eligible for Best Original Score at the 85th annual 85th Academy Awards. The award is voted on by all members of the Music Branch, who vote in the order of their preference for not more than five films and the five films with the highest number of votes will become the nominations for final voting.
A film's score must be a substantial body of music that serves as original dramatic underscoring to be eligible and must be written specifically for the motion picture by the submitting composer. Those scored which are diluted by the use of tracked themes or other preexisting music, diminished in impact by the predominant use of songs, or assembled from the music of more than one composer are not eligible.
