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.
