Berita tanggal 29 Desember 2010 ni, tentang film-film yang memenuhi syarat untuk mendapat nominasi Oscar. Memenuhi syarat antara lain kebanyakan menggunakan musik lama, kebanyakan lagu dan termasuk juga bahwa score-nya di-submit ke juri AMPAS. Patoet diperhatikan bahwa ada dua dari tiga score Danny Elfman yang masuk ke dalam daftar ini yaitu Alice in Wonderland dan The Next Three Days. Score Danny Elfman yang tidak masuk adalah The Wolfman which I think is the best from the three, what a shame..

Last week came news that the musical scores for "True Grit," "Black Swan," "The Kids Are All Right" and "The Fighter" had been ruled ineligible by the Academy's music branch, either for using too much pre-existing music or for relying too heavily on songs.
Now that Academy voters have received the list of scores that did qualify, we can add "Toy Story 3" to the list of high-profile scores that aren't in the running – not because the branch ruled it ineligible, but because composer Randy Newman opted not to submit it.
Notable composers whose work isn't on the Oscar list: Harry Gregson-Williams for "Unstoppable," Desplat for "Tamara Drewe" and Dario Marianelli for "Agora."
