The Academy will send a reminder list of works submitted in the Original Score category with a nominations ballot to all members of the Music Branch, who will vote in the order of their preference for no more than five; they ones with the most votes will become the nominations for final voting for the award, which will be announced on January 10, 2013.

The Academy has strict rules for eligibility:  "the original score must be a substantial body of music that serves as original dramatic underscoring, and must be written specifically for the motion picture by the submitting composer.  Scores diluted by the use of tracked themes or other preexisting music, diminished in impact by the predominant use of songs, or assembled from the music of more than one composer shall not be eligible."
