2012 Annie Award Nominations for Best Music

2012 Annie Award Nominations for Best Music

One of this year's first list of award nominees are the Annies.  Over the years, the Annies were one of the few organizations that didn't appear to automatically hand the latest Pixar feature every award possible, which, among other things, made their annual awards interesting to follow.  This year, I find them interesting to follow because a glaring omission.  Below you will find the nominees for music for television and music for feature film, but what you will not find is a nomination for Danny Elfman's score for FRANKENWEENIE in the latter.  An outrage...yes.  So what do you think of this year's nominees and who do you predict will win each?
