Oscar 2024, and the winners are…

The annual prize-giving event took place in Los Angeles in the evening Oscar, which also saw the musical aspects of cinema rewarded. Among the numerous statuettes awarded are the one that rewards the best soundtrack and the best song linked to the films produced the previous year.

They won the soundtrack of the film “Oppenheimer” Of Ludwig Göransson and the original song “What Was I Made For” by Billie Eilish he was born in brother Finneasincluded in the soundtrack of the film “Barbie”.

The Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson with the music of Nolan's film “Oppenheimer” (which won seven awards in total) puts a second statuette on the board after the one awarded to him in 2019 for the Oscar-winning soundtrack of “Black Panther”. Göransson has several soundtracks to his credit but is also the producer of Childish Gambino with which he made three albums. The two have racked up seven Grammy nominations and with “This Is America” won the 2019 Grammy Awards for recording and song of the year, best collaboration with a rap artist and best video clip.

The Academy awarded best original song “What Was I Made For” signed by Billie Eilish and from brother Finneas included in the soundtrack of the film “Barbie” which, contrary to predictions, did not have a great response and the only prize was that of the song. The two brothers also put the second Oscar on the board. The first time was in 2022 again as an original song with 2022 with “Not Time To die” in the soundtrack of the film of the same name from the 007 saga. For the occasion Eilish won in an “internal competition”, in fact among the nominations there was also “I'm Just Ken” also from the movie “Barbie”. Ryan Gosling he had to “limit himself” to performing the song live during the ceremony dressed in shocking pink with dozens of dancers in old Hollywood style.

These are the words with which Billie Eilish accepted the award: “Tonight I had a nightmare about this moment, thanks very much to the Academy I didn't think it would happen. I'm incredibly lucky, grateful. Thanks for the film Greta (Gerwig, the director) I dedicate it to all those who were impressed by the film. Thanks to our parents and my teachers. Thank you for believing in me.”

They also performed during the evening Andrea Bocelli with his son Matteo, thus starting from the stage of the Oscars (where he returns after the first performance in 1999) the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of his father Andrea's career. The two interpreted an absolute preview of the new version of “I will leave with you / Time to say Goodbye”. The song that officially marked the Italian singer's recording debut and the one that marked the father-son collaboration were rearranged and produced specifically for them by composer two-time Oscar winner Hans Zimmer.
