Alexandre Desplat is 51 years old and has composed some 130 movie scores. He's been nominated four times. This year they include three of the 104 eligible Oscar features: "Argo," "Rise of the Guardians," and "Zero Dark Thirty." His score for "Moonrise Kingdom" and "Rust and Bone" didn't get through the Academy's strict eligibility requirements (see below.) Here's TOH's interview.

Desplat is a potential final five contender--if he doesn't cancel himself out as he did last year--along with Oscar perennials John Williams ("Lincoln"), Danny Elfman ("Frankenweenie," "Hitchcock," "Dark Shadows," "Men in Black III," "Promised Land"), Hans Zimmer ("The Dark Knight Rises"), Thomas Newman ("Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Skyfall") and Patrick Doyle ("Brave").

The eligible scores along with their composers are listed below in alphabetical order by film title:


       "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," Henry Jackman, composer
       "After the Wizard," Stephen Main, composer
       "Alex Cross," John Debney and Sebastian Morton, composers
       "The Amazing Spider-Man," James Horner, composer
       "Anna Karenina," Dario Marianelli, composer
       "Argo," Alexandre Desplat, composer
       "Battleship," Steve Jablonsky, composer
       "The Bay," Marcelo Zarvos, composer
       "Beasts of the Southern Wild," Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin, composers
       "Being Flynn," Damon Gough, composer
       "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," Thomas Newman, composer
       "Big Miracle," Cliff Eidelman, composer
