The rule the Academy has about pre-existing music in the Original Score nominees is a load of bollocks. Fortunately they've seen fit to bypass it a couple of times over the past few years (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King come to mind).
As for the category itself, I no longer have any faith in it after the fiasco of this year. So, in reality I don't care who is nominated, let alone who wins, in the future.
