“Up” chosen over alum’s “Hurt Locker” for Best Original Score

Marco Beltrami ’88 and co-composer Buck Sanders received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score for the film “The Hurt Locker,” but Michael Giacchino took the trophy for his soundtrack to the animated feature “Up.”

“The Hurt Locker” certainly didn’t leave the ceremony without recognition, though, and “Crazy Heart,” another film with connections to L’il Rhody, took awards for Best Actor and Best Song.
