Oscar nominations released for best in movie music

Oscar nominations for original music and score will be announced by the Academy Thursday morning. But often, the music that you remember most from a film isn’t original. Someone realized that a particular song would strike the perfect emotional chord at a specific moment in the movie. That someone is the Music Supervisor.

And, Alison Cuddy reviews some of this year's noms. Photo: Flickr/cliff1066™
