I've been one of the stronger supporters of TSN score since day 1. But i'll be totally honest: Zimmer and Powell didn't seserve the Oscar, Desplat deserved it. But it's just that the Academy has always been searching something extravagant to award in this category. So even if we spend a few more months on a meaningless debate whether TSN deserved the Oscar or "Frisbee", it's better to go with it and move on.

What worries me about the ranking on this site is that most of the users and some admins are willing to "crucify" decent artists when they are not on their best form, but on the other hand they discover some mediocre composers and they turn them to gods...
