The guitarist’s soundtrack work is deemed ineligible
Jonny Greenwood’s score for the Oscar-nominated film “There Will Be Blood” has missed out on its own nomination after being deemed ineligible.
Only a minority of the score was written specifically for the film, leading to its automatic disqualification from nomination.
The original score lasts for around 35 minutes, but another 46 minutes of Greenwood‘s music is also used in the film, including excerpts from his BBC-commissioned 2006 piece “Popcorn Superhet Receiver”.
The film scores that received Oscar nomination are as follows:
“The Kite Runner”
“3:10 To Yuma”
However, Greenwood has been nominated for a BAFTA for his work on “There Will Be Blood”.
