Congratulations to Elfman for winning film composition of the year for his cue "Alice's Theme" from Alice In Wonderland. It's very deserving of the award. In fact I think winning that award is better than winning film composer of the year and best original score for a fantasy/sci-fi/horror film. That's impressive that cue won especially with the competition it was up against. So that says a lot. "Alice's Theme" really is a great and memorable piece of music. I think it captures the spirit, tone, and heart of the Lewis Carroll book and Burton's film at the same time. So I'm happy it got the award and recognition. Nice to see Elfman win something for a change.
