Five score and four eligible for Oscars for score

AMPAS has sanctioned 104 scores from eligible feature-length motion to contend for nominations in the original score category for the next Oscars.

The list includes Jonny Greenwood (“The Master”), whose efforts in a previous Paul Thomas Anderson film, “There Will Be Blood,” were disallowed per Academy rules.
