Oscars 2024: Ludwig Göransson Wins Best Original Score for Oppenheimer

Ludwig Göransson has won Best Original Score for Oppenheimer at the 2024 Academy Awards. He accepted the trophy from presenters Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. In his speech, Göransson thanked his parents for giving him instruments instead of video games, as well as director Christopher Nolan for inviting him to score the film in the first place. “Christopher, it was your idea to use the violin in the score, and it allowed me to work with my wonderful wife and acclaimed violinist Serena McKinney,” said Göransson.

The other nominees were Jerskin Fendrix for Poor Things, Laura Karpman for American Fiction, John Williams for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, and Robbie Robertson, honored posthumously for Killers of the Flower Moon. Mica Levi, Mark Ronson, and Joe Hisaishi were among the shortlisted entrants who did not receive nominations, for The Zone of Interest, Barbie, and Boy and the Heron, respectively.

Oppenheimer had a big night at the Oscars, going on to win Best Picture in addition to Best Director (Christopher Nolan), Best Actor (Cillian Murphy), Best Supporting Actor (Robert Downey Jr.), Best Cinematography (Hoyte Van Hoytema), and Best Film Editing (Jennifer Lame).

Earlier in the evening, Billie Eilish and Finneas won Best Original Song for “What Was I Made For?,” from Barbie. The siblings played the song live at the award ceremony with additional backing from an orchestra. Fellow Barbie cut “I’m Just Ken” also came to life onstage thanks to a theatrical performance by Ryan Gosling and dozens of Kens, as did fellow Best Original Song nominees Becky G’s “The Fire Inside,” Jon Batiste’s “It Never Went Away,” and Scott George and the Osage Tribal Singers’ “Wahzhazhe (A Song for My People).”

In January, Göransson won Best Original Score at the 2024 Golden Globes, too. During that acceptance speech, he thanked Cillian Murphy, saying, “I have been watching your face over and over and over again and it’s been an incredible experience.”
