“Black Swan,” “True Grit” scores disqualified for Oscar consideration

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Two of the best film scores I heard this year were Clint Mansell’s “Black Swan” and Carter Burwell’s “True Grit.” The former is gothic and terrifying (in the best ways), while the latter is warm, weathered and inspiring (in the best ways).

Too bad neither of them will be able to compete for an Oscar.

Variety reports today that the scores for “Black Swan,” “True Grit,” “The Kids Are All Right” and “The Fighter” will be disqualified for consideration at the upcoming Academy Awards.

“Swan” and “Grit” reportedly are out because they are “diluted by the use of tracked themes or other pre-existing music” such as Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” or a handful of 19th century hymns.

As for “Fighter” and “Kids,” they rely too heavily on full songs like Aerosmith’s “Back in the Saddle.” Terrible.

That’s a sad loss for score aficionados, who can pop the CDs for these fantastic music soundtracks and drown out to Academy’s too-strict rules.
