We have already had a polls rating the best musical scores on film by composers John Williams and Hans Zimmer. Now let's take a look at one more great composer of our time: Danny Elfman.

And let's not forget about his work in television, composing the main title themes for "The Simpsons" and "Desperate Housewives". Elfman has been composing for over 30 years and has over 90 credits and 4 Oscar nominations to his name, but unbelievably has yet to win an Oscar.
