1. No More Oscar Nominations For Scores

    By daniel on 2003-01-20

    Future James Bond films will be ineligible for nomination in the category of Best Original Film Score at the Academy Awards.

    The ineligibility is a result of nomination rule changes by the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, who head the Academy Awards. The new rule disallows film sequels, and series, that use score elements from previous films.

    The new rule won’t just affect future Bond films, other film series such Star Wars, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings will be ineligible for nomination.
