Okay, that's are a few more people as I thought. Thank you for telling me. Then I think the chance for Hans and James to win a Oscar is not that high.
Do they take into account how many people worked on a score at the Oscars? I thought they simply judged them on which they found to be the best. It doesn't matter though, Hans and James will never win because we've also got Howard Shore's The Hobbit score coming out that same year. If social Network could beat out Inception, just think what actual music will do
I thought so too. Yeah, that's true...

There was a major battle over this back when TDK was up for contention. The main problem is the Hans and James are the credited composers. As credited composers you have to write a certain percentage of the score. Hans and James sometimes also had additional composers listed on the cue sheets, even though the cues were only written by them, as a way of financially rewarding others who helped out with the score in various ways -- aka Lorne, Mel, and music editor Alex Gibson.
I believe they had the decision to disqualify the score reversed after all 5 of them signed an affidavit, but the score was never nominated in return. Maybe things will be different with Rises. Maybe.
I hope that they will change it. I think that the score will be epic! I mean it doesn't matter how many people worked on the score when it's just the best of all.
