Oscar Snub - Tron Legacy's Soundtrack

I know this is a little late, but I'm still upset that nobody recognized just how good the Tron Legacy soundtrack was. I guess the fact that it's not attached to a movie of such sheer brilliance as The Social Network or The King's Speech it wouldn't be nominated for a Oscar for Best Score. Now don't get me wrong, Trent Reznor did an amazing job on The Social Network's score, but just listen to a few songs from the Tron Legacy soundtrack. I guess my problem is Daft Punk. Is it because of who they are and the style of music that they pump out? Seriously, Three 6 Mafia won an Oscar for Hustle and Flow's "It's Hard Out Here For a Pimp." The song was great, the movie was definitely worthy of it's praise for the accurate portrait of life in Memphis, TN.

 My only explanation for it's Oscar snub is the fact that Tron Legacy was butchered by critics. But look at look at what the critics had to say on this 'For Your Consideration' poster designed by shokxone-studios, a designer who makes poster and such. Check out his poster for The Dark Knight Rises at

Take a listen to the end titles to Tron Legacy, by Daft Punk...

Seriously they nominated The King's Speech and How to Train Your Dragon for Best Original Score. All I know is Inception better win Best Score... Go Hans Zimmer!
