NEWS: 'The Hunger Games' long-listed for Best Original Score Oscar Award

Great news, Hunger Games fans! Deadline has reported that The Hunger Games' score composed by James Newton Howard has been included on the long list of potential nominees  for an Oscar under the Best Original Score category. May the odds be ever in our favor!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ Music Branch members will vote for no more than five of the 104 eligible movies announced today, with the five receiving the most votes becoming the nominations for final voting for the 85th Academy Awards. To be eligible, the original score must be a substantial body of music that serves as original dramatic underscoring, and must be written specifically for the motion picture by the submitting composer. Scores 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 shall not be eligible, the Academy said today.
The Hunger Games score by James Newton Howard is included in the list of eligible movies.
