So the Grammy Nominations came out yesterday, and while that may not necessarily be a huge deal to the movie industry, I wanted to take a look at best movie scores. As I suspected and predicted, the Tron Legacy soundtrack by Daft Punk recieved a nomination, and could very well win. I hope they do (and accept the award wearing their robot helmets).
Also, wanted to give a shout out to Clint Mansell, for his nomination for his work on Black Swan. That movie was phenomenol (I love Aronofsky). The soundtrack to that film was something else, and I was a little disappointed when it didn't garner any Oscar love. Mansell has a long list of movies on his resume and his worked with Aronofsky many times, including: Requiem for a Dream, Pi, The Fountain, and The Wrestler. Apparently they always work together... because that's all of Aronofsky's movies... Mansell has also done soundtracks for Moon, Definitely, Maybe, Smokin' Aces, and Sahara, amongst others. This is Mansell's second Grammy nomination, his first being for The Fountain.
