In this series of blog posts, we’ll be sharing the observations of our Entertainment Reporter, Kristyn Burtt, with you between now and the Oscars. We’ll be covering the Oscars from set up to day of at the Kodak Theatre and will be on the red carpet talking to celebrities on the day of the event as well.

Today, we’re looking at Best Song and Best Original Score that are up for the Oscar – and the controversy that is being talked about this year as it relates to each category and or film. Let us know your thoughts by posting here on our blog.

Music (Original Score)

  • “The Adventures of Tintin” John Williams
  • “The Artist” Ludovic Bource
  • “Hugo” Howard Shore
  • “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” Alberto Iglesias
  • “War Horse” John Williams
One nominee has 47 nominations but not more than Walt Disney who had 59. Who do you think will win?

Music (Original Song)

  • “Man or Muppet” from “The Muppets” Music and Lyric by Bret McKenzie
  • “Real in Rio” from “Rio” Music by Sergio Mendes and Carlinhos Brown Lyric by Siedah Garrett

Why only two nominees? Kristyn will explain.

This is a one film race – which one do you think she’s talking about. Also, what is the controversy surrounding Foreign Film submissions?

Let’s see what else Kristyn has to say:
