The beautiful score for Toy Story 3 is an integral part of the movie viewing experience. Think back to the final scene of the film and the incredibly emotional sequence that touched so many people and it is easy to see that Randy Newman once again provided great music to accompany a Pixar film. Earlier this evening, the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 2011 Grammy Awards and the music of Toy Story 3 made the cut!
Best Score Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Media:
- Alice in Wonderland – Danny Elfman, composer
- Avatar – James Horner, composer
- Inception – Hans Zimmer, composer
- Sherlock Holmes – Hans Zimmer, composer

The nominees for the soundtrack category reads like an all-star list. Elfman, Horner, Zimmer, and Newman are all accomplished composers who have had great success in the past. That will likely make this category difficult to predict.
