Ludwig Goransson has claimed an Oscar for his Black Panther score at the 91st Academy Awards.
Goransson, a Swedish composer, conductor, and record producer, has a longstanding working relationship with director Ryan Coogler and immediately thanked him as part of his acceptance speech.
Fifteen scores originally advanced in the Original Score category after one hundred and fifty-six scores were initially made eligible in the category. Members of the Music Branch vote to determine the shortlist and the nominees.
Goransson eventually edged out competition from Marc Shaiman (Mary Poppins Returns), Nicholas Britell (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Alexandre Desplat, who won the gong last year for his work with Shape Of Water.
