Well, well. The Academy has reconsidered their decision regarding the disqualification of THE DARK KNIGHT original score by HANS ZIMMER and JAMES NEWTON HOWARD. One composer on the committee stated to me that their decision was originally correct by the established rules. I'm just pleased to see that the Academy was willing to look at this situation and adjust accordingly. Hopefully, they will modify the rules so collaborative efforts beyond 2 composers will be acceptable. You can read the brief story at Variety.com.
