'Dark Knight' Score Deemed Elegible for Academy Award

December 9, 2008


Variety is reporting that the Academy has reversed it's previous decision that would have rendered James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer's Dark Knight score ineligible.

The Music Branch Executive Committee of the Academy has 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.

Now to see if Zimmer can pass the drug test. He says he's clean, but everyone's noticed he's put on way more bulk than composing alone could ever generate.
