Fan-Made For Your Consideration: Daft Punk's 'Tron Legacy' Score
Though it's hard to top the fantastic soundtrack that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross put together for The Social Network (which took home a Golden Globe last night and will surely get nominated for an Oscar), it was very disappointing that Daft Punk didn't get any love for their amazing work on the score for Tron Legacy. However, there's at least one more major chance for the musical duo to get some award love this season since the Academy Award nominations aren't announced until January 25th. Though Disney hasn't been making a big push for the Tron Legacy score, one fan has created his own Oscar campaign poster to promote Daft Punk's great work.
For Your Consideration: Daft Punk's original score for Tron Legacy (click for a larger version):
Meshing a light disc with a vinyl record complete with light cycles making laps, this poster from Deviant Art user shokxone-studios (via Geek Tyrant) looks almost as sleek as the grid itself. Along with great quotes to praise the score and all the official looking credits, if I wasn't told this was a fan made "For Your Consideration" ad, I would've been completely fooled. Honestly, I really hope Daft Punk gets some love when the Oscar nominations get announced, because I've been listening to the Tron Legacy score in my car non-stop since it was released. Even naysayers of the film itself can probably agree that Daft Punk put their blood, sweat and tears into that score, and it paid off tremendously. Anyone else think Daft Punk deserves some Oscar love?
