He did not (underline that word) deserve the Best Original Score award. What a joke. Song, sure... fine. But best score? lolol awful choice.

I agree with Dr Malcom Crowe, Slumdog Millionaire is a good soundtrack, but it has lots of songs.  I got all of the soundtracks that got nominated and I think it should have been between Wall-E, Defiance, and Benjamin Button with Defiance winning, but even if it got beat by the other two, I would have completely understood.

I disagree. Did you know that there is not a single violin or cello in the entire Slumdog soundtrack.
THose instruments are the BASIS of EVERY single composition.

Id give it to him for sheer originality.

Plus, the songs are so different from that orchestra like cinematic moving pieces. THis just grabs you in its freshness.

A.R. Rahmen = 2 Oscars
Ennio Morricone = 1 (honorary) Oscar
James Newton Howard = 0 Oscars


what a joke. rahmen is actually a very melodic and talented composer, but the slumdog score was nothing extraordinary. the only reason i accept it as oscar worthy is because the oscar history in this category is turning into a joke.

I agree that Rahman's score for Slumdog isn't his best.  In fact it is average among his scores.  But he has done some powerful scores all along his career that he should have been nominated long ago.  I'm just happy that he got recognized for his work. 

AS for James.....i felt sorry.  Hopefully he will get one for the Last Airbender.  :)

Btw...he should have won for The Village.

Totally should have one for The Village! People will look back at 2004 and remember the score for The Village but totally forget Finding Neverland. Whatever.

Also, isn't it best original score, not songs, which is what Slumdog is full of.  I own Slumdog Millionaire, the soundtrack, because I enjoy it.  I also own Defiance and the others that were nominated, except for Milk, and Defiance should definately have won.  Unfortunately James Newton Howard just can't seem to get an Oscar.  I bought Finding Neverland too see why it won the best original score award, and was stunned.  The Village was miles ahead of it in emotion, beauty, and skill.  The Village is my top normal soundtrack (the Lord of the Rings complete recordings are my favorite), with Defiance right behind The Village.
