best of 2012: the original scores

And this is where we leave it. Time to stop living in the past, I suppose, and move on to a bright new 2013. This is the last, and one of my personal favorite, category to recap for my best of 2012 series. For such a bum year in a lot of respects, there were plentiful innovative and wonderful scores to be had, and here are my tops:
1. Dan Romer & Benh Zeitlin, Beasts of the Southern Wild

2. Jonny Greenwood, The Master

3. Heather McIntosh, Compliance

4. Michael Giacchino, John Carter

5. Dario Marianelli, Anna Karenina

6. Reinhold Heil, Johnny Klimek & Tom Tykwer, Cloud Atlas

7. Jon Brion, ParaNorman

8. Marc Streitenfeld, Prometheus

9. Henry Jackman, Wreck-It Ralph

10. Fernando Velazquez, The Impossible
