Baffling Oscar nom   Friday, January 20, 2012 (7:03 p.m.) 

It is baffling to me that, aside from Jerry Goldsmith's score for the original film, this was the only Trek score nominated for an Oscar. But that's just how lame the Academy is. Had James Horner been 10 more years into his career, ST2 might have been nominated as it should have. Michael Giacchino may have been nominated for the 2009 movie if he hadn't also done Up that year, for which he won.

Not baffling at all. As is very often the case at the Oscars, the Best Original Score nomination was used as a consolation prize to a film that was liked, but couldn't win/be nominated for other areas.

For example, if this site were nominated for Best Use of Annoying Black Background in a Supporting Role.

Yeah, but the point was more about how the other movies with better music were snubbed
