The real reason AOTC is not going to be nominated is the closed-mindedness of the Academy. The Phantom Menace, too, didn't get nominated. Star Wars is old news to the Academy members - they've given the franchise 10 or so Oscars and that seems to be enough for them, regardless of quality. Most of them are probably old guys who harken back to the good old 70's and the original trilogy which is "light-years" beyond the new trilogy (and in terms of acting performances they are probably right). Episode II has no chance of nomination, much less an Oscar, even if it is undoubtedly the second best score of the year (second only to The Two Towers, of course).
