Happy for Elfman's nominations. Yeah I know I say this a lot of times, but probably unlikely that he'll win. Oh well. Still great he's getting recognition. Too bad they forgot to nominate The Wolfman in the same category Alice was nominated in. The score should've been nomnated for something. It deserved some recognition, imo. All the hurdles for the score to be put back in the film etc.etc. Oh well nominated or not still a great score.

Nice to see the LLL Batman Returns reissue nominated for best archival release of an existing score.
