AMPAS rejects Dark Knight Score!!!
From IMDB.com:

"In times past, a composer may have received credit for creating the musical soundtrack for a movie even when he contributed little more than the theme. However, an uproar has now followed the decision of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science's decision to disqualify the score of The Dark Knight because credited composers James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer were unable to establish that they were directly responsible for more than 70 percent of the music, a requirement of Academy rules. The two had listed three others as composers on the official cue sheet, telling Daily Variety earlier this week that they did so in order to qualify them for royalties. The Academy's music committee reportedly spent hours debating the issue, with several members arguing unsuccessfully that the score merited nomination notwithstanding the cue-sheet issue."

Wow, that's truly shocking! This could easily have won the Oscar.
