Arcade Fire, M83, Mike Patton, Cliff Martinez Longlisted for Best Original Score Oscar
With 2013 winding down, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revealed the long list of soundtracks that are eligible for the Best Original Score nomination next year. Several notable acts are up for the honour.

Perhaps most notably for us here in Canada, Arcade Fire are eligible for their work on Spike Jonze's Her. Owen Pallet (in collaboration with William Butler) is also eligible for his contributions to Her.

Other artists include M83 for Oblivion, Alex Ebert (of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) for All Is Lost, Mike Patton for The Place Beyond the Pines, Rick Smith (of Underworld) for Trance, Jóhann Jóhannsson for Prisoners, Nick Urata (of DeVotchKa) for both Arthur Newman and What Maisie Knew, Steven Price for Gravity, Clint Mansell for Stoker, Max Richter for Wadjda, and Cliff Martinez for The Company You Keep.

The list of 114 also includes lots of established Hollywood composers like Thomas Newman, Alan Silvestri, Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Howard Shore, Danny Elfman and more.

Bear in mind that these aren't the final nominations. Those will be announced on January 16, with the ceremony to follow on March 2.
