I really liked the score for Tangled. It had something really special about it. Too bad the songs didn't quite live up!

Also, Black Swan's beautiful, and so affecting in the movie. Yikes. I think it's my favorite of the year so far, though the only thing is I have a hard time figuring out where Mansell begins and Tchaikovsky ends - be that good or bad. Haha.

I would love if award groups nominated John Adams' score for "I Am Love" it is so freaking great! But perhaps too avant garde for silly AMPAS.
