Down 3 for John Powell's technicolour soundtrack

The blockbuster animation won the hearts of children and adults alike, but Powell's soundtrack is pure action movie class. Powell is something of a minor Hollywood legend, having provided the soundtracks to some incredible money-shifting blockbusters throughout the years (try The Bourne trilogy, for starters). But with How To Train Your Dragon, he earned his first Academy Award nomination — and with two more sequels confirmed with him on board as composer, maybe we'll see him approaching the stage sometime soon.
