Nominees for best original score include Clint Eastwood for "Million Dollar Baby," Jan A.P. Kaczmarek for "Finding Neverland," Rolfe Kent for "Sideways," Howard Shore for "The Aviator" and Hans Zimmer for "Spanglish."
Rapper Mos Def was nominated for best performance by an actor in a mini-series or motion picture made for television for his role in "Something the Lord Made."
