Iceland wins Oscarmain
The Icelandic composer Hildur Guðnadóttir last night won Best Original Score at the Oscars for the movie Joker.
She came in ahead of John Williams, Randy Newman, Alexandre Desplat, and Thomas Newman.
No further comment was needed but, within minutes, Hollywood media were shrilling that she is the first woman to win this award. That must have really affected how she composed.
And, by the way, Rachel Portman won the same Oscar in 1996.
Anyone remember the 20th century?
