‘DARK KNIGHT’ SCORE HAS ITS OSCAR ELIGIBILITY RESTORED


Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard are back in contention for an Oscar nom. The Music Branch Executive Committee of the Academy reversed its Nov. 10 decision declaring their score for “the Dark Knight” ineligible for the 2008 Academy Awards.


The score was disqualified due to five names being listed as composers on the music cue sheet. After reviewing information submitted by the affected parties, the committee concluded that two Zimmer and Howard were responsible for the score’s authorship.


Neither nomination ballots nor lists of eligible scores had been distributed so there is no impact on the actual voting process.
