The Oscars

So, who won a musical Oscar last night? By which I mean who won an Academy Award for their musical efforts. The award doesn’t play a tune when you lift it up. Though you’d think by 2014 they’d probably do that, wouldn’t you?

Anyway, it was the Oscars last night, which are basically the Oscars of the film world, and on the music side songwriting couple Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez took the Best Original Song prize for their tune ‘Let It Go’ from the Disney flick ‘Frozen’, while Steven Price got Best Original Score for composing the music to ‘Gravity’.

As for the rest of this year’s winners at Hollywood’s big back-slapping bash, well, that’s definitely outside the remit of music news, so I’m not allowed to tell you.
