Over the past two days The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences listed both the score and song from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey as eligible for nominations in both the Best Score and Best Original Song categories for the 85th Academy Awards in February. I can’t even begin to fathom any of the movies in the Lord of the Rings trilogy without the soaring soulful works of Howard Shore. It undoubtedly stands as his most towering achievement to date. He won three Academy Awards® for his music for those films, two for Best Original Score, and one for Best Original Song. Shore has also won numerous other honors for his film work, including four Grammys and three Golden Globe Awards.
WaterTower Music has released The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Original Motion Picture Soundtrack today and once again composer Shore’s score is a triumph. »

It still provides a chuckle
The history of The Academy Awards is littered with strange and inexplicable happenings: Revealed shortcomings, spontaneous pushups, "The winner is Paul Newman," Sandahl Bergman's interpretive dance to "Eye Of The Tiger" (admittedly, one of the highlights of my life).
And of course ... Snow White rolling on the river.
But aside from the odd ceremony moments, and the fashion drama on the red carpet, it's the Oscar errors in judgment that we remember the most.
A few weeks ago we discussed the Oscar nomination Sins Of Omission, so let's now take a look at the performers who actually won, and how The Academy still blew it.
The 2005 nominees for Best Actor were:
David Strathairn in Good Night and Good Luck
