Oscar 2024
Oppenheimer Wins Best Original Score

Maestro Anthony Parnther as Oppenheimer conductor

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has unveiled the recipients of the 96th Academy Awards. In the prestigious Best Original Score category, Ludwig Göransson won the award for his exceptional composition for "Oppenheimer," director Christopher Nolan’s sweeping drama chronicling the life and contributions of theoretical physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer. Oppenheimer's pivotal role in the Manhattan Project during the 1940s paved the way for the development of the world's first nuclear weapon.


In his acceptance speech, Göransson expressed his gratitude: “Thank you Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas for inviting me on this incredible world. Christopher Nolan it was your idea to use the violin in the score, and it allowed me to work and collaborate with my wonderful wife and acclaimed violinist Serena Göransson. We had… we recorded at night and we were rushing to home and put our kids Apollo and Romeo down to bed, but the result of that was amazing and it really set a really nice tone for the film of that performance. Theresa Stanislav, Jake Brown, Chris Fogel, Anthony Parnther, Alyssa Park, thank you for making the music sound great, and to my parents up there, thank you for giving me guitars and drum machines instead of video games! Thank you!”


Congratulations to Ludwig Göransson, Maestro Anthony Parnther, and all the winners on their remarkable achievements in the world of cinema!
