6. "Big Fish" (2003)
Somehow the only Oscar nomination Elfman has received for a Burton film was 2003's "Big Fish," and it was a great call because it really is one of the most nuanced and inspired scores he has ever penned for the filmmaker. Most of the time they're treading in similar waters from film to film but this work was transcendent and evocative of the tall tale atmosphere of story.
