Following a blog uproar, the Academy has ruled that Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard's score for The Dark Knight is, in fact, eligible for Oscar consideration, reversing their previous idiotic decision to disqualify it. Batfans can now commence lobbying for a Best Foreign Language nomination based on Christian Bale's growly Batman voice (it counts!). [Big Picture/LAT]
