Black Panther's Göransson wins at the Oscars

Updated: Jul 20, 2020

Once again, the amazing Olivia Colman is dominating headlines but let's give the Oscar winner of Best Original Score some of the spotlight.

Last night was the biggest night of the year for the film industry; the night everyone works towards. It was of course the 91st Academy Awards. We all know Olivia Colman gave a fantastic acceptance speech when she won Best Actress, and Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper gave us all a questionably intimate performance of their Best Original Song. But let's not forget about the amazing win by Ludwig Göransson for his score for Black Panther (2018).


Now a year old, Black Panther broke a lot of records and boundaries. It has made history for a number of reasons and it was one of the most talked about films of 2018. It made progress in leaps and bounds for the African film community, so it's no surprise it has done well this award season.


Beating such tough competition as Nicholas Britell for If Beale Street Could Talk, Marc Shaiman for Mary Poppins Returns, Alexandre Desplat for Isle of Dogs and Terence Blanchard for BlacKkKlansman, it was Ludwig Göransson who took home the trophy. This win came as no surprise as he had already won a Grammy and has been nominated for a Golden Globe. This is Göransson's first Oscar win and it can only mean big things in the future for the relatively young composer.
