This year's winners in the Oscars music categories were Volker Bertelmann for his Original Score for ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, and Chandrabose and M.M. Keeravani for their Original Song "Naatu Naatu" from RRR.

This is the first year in Oscar history where both of the music awards went to foreign language films. Past foreign language score winners are The Postman (Il Postino) (Luis Bacalov), Life Is Beautiful (Nicola Piovani) and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Tan Dun). The only previous winning song from a foreign language film is "Al Otro Lado Del Rio" from The Motorcycle Diaries; "Jai Ho" from Slumdog Millionaire is in Hindi, Urdu and Punujabi, but the film itself is in English.

DID THEY MENTION THE MUSIC?

EMILY - Abel Korzeniowski
 
"O’Connor’s Emily overcomes her quirks, engages her desire, and fulfills her passions -- and then some. In O’Connor’s film, Emily’s needs look and feel much like Cathy’s desires and passions in 'Wuthering Heights.' Indeed, O’Connor’s film looks and sounds like some of the more notable adaptions of the book. Nanu Segal’s landscape photography of distant, lush rolling hills and fog settling on the moors invokes director William Wyler’s 1939 take on
'Wuthering Heights' that features the work of legendary 'Citizen Kane' cinematographer Gregg Toland. Yet when passions rise, Emily looks and feels more like Andrea Arnold’s 2001 adaptation of 'Wuthering Heights.' That film features folky ballads as a score, while the music for 'Emily,' by Abel Korzeniowski, is sweeping, deeply moving, and fully orchestral."
 
Timothy Cogshell, The Onion AV Club 

"The detailed production design and the homage to the titular character’s deep appreciation of nature are two of 'Emily''s strengths. The inclusion of and focus on the mysterious porcelain mask that the family was gifted in real life is also something Brontë admirers will recognize and appreciate. The power that a figurative and literal disguise can have over you -- for better or worse -- is explored in a very artistically satisfying way. Elements of the supernatural are briefly touched upon in a visually potent scene when Emily wears the mask and speaks to her family and friends while channeling her late mother. Similarly, Abel Korzeniowski’s score is beautiful and strategic. Interspersed between tense conversations Emily has with her sisters are blissful moments frolicking in nature underneath a sweeping score that never ceases to elevate the story."
 
Emily Bernard, Collider 
 
"Cinematographer Nanu Segal ('An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn') perfectly captures the fog and the winds and cliffs and the heather as though this were another screen adaptation of 'Wuthering Heights,' while the score by Abel Korzeniowski ('W.E.') accurately, with just a few instruments, captures the feeling of an anxiety attack in musical form."
 
Alonso Duralde, The Wrap 
 
"The air is charged with melodrama and even a touch of madness. The candlelight flickers menacingly within the house’s shadowy interiors (sparely appointed by production designer Steve Summersgill). Emily’s fascination with death -- and, more specifically, with her mother’s untimely passing years earlier -- turns a tense family drama into a brooding Victorian ghost story, set to the operatic churn of Abel Korzeniowski’s score."
 
Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times 
 
"'Emily' is packed with elements that can feel like homework -- period drama, literary biopic, etc., etc. -- but it’s neither stuffy nor drab. In fact, for much of its running time, it’s a film of good humor and high spirits. The cinematography is striking but not flashy, and cinematographer Nanu Segal moves the camera with patience and precision. Yet the snazzy compositions, shock edits, bursts of handheld camera, and furious violins are like something out of a psychological thriller; this is a film that pulses and breathes and feels lived in (the clothing looks worn, the dishes look used, the homes look like homes)."
 
Jason Bailey, The Playlist 
 
"Of course, Brontë’s blank canvas allure won’t stop purists from scoffing at O’Connor’s Gen Z-friendly decision to cast 'Sex Education' star Emma Mackey in the title role (a brilliant idea, it turns out). And those same people will surely be up in arms over her melodramatic vision of how literature’s most famous middle child came to write 'Wuthering Heights' -- not least of all because it involves getting high on opium and giving a b*****b to the hunkiest new member of the Yorkshire clergy while Abel Korzeniowski’s vortex-like violin score goes absolutely hog wild over the soundtrack"
 
David Ehrlich, IndieWire 
 
"DP Nanu Segal’s photography is pretty but not prettified, and integral to the contemporary vibe. The subtle shake of the elegant, handheld camerawork becomes more pronounced outdoors, as though caught in the blustery dampness of the moors outside Haworth parsonage, the Brontë residence. Inside, the camera, dim with cloud-filtered daylight, settles pensively into rooms scuffed and unfussy, without a hint of chintz, sometimes pulling a trio of faces into a circle of candlelight out of a pure black background. Set to Abel Korzeniowski’s exceptional score, which is tempestuous and classical but frays at the edges into scraping violins, the filmmaking at times borders on the expressionistic, without ever betraying the traditional period form."
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety 
 
"The messy triangle leaves Emily in an odd position, although she never explicitly has to make a choice between one man or the other. The film comes dangerously close to portraying Brontë’s creative pursuits as fueled mainly by these men and their warring desires (the two, naturally, despise each other). O’Connor’s reliance on vignettes is a compounding factor: These sketches play well enough, especially when accompanied by Abel Korzeniowski’s sweeping score, but characters and their motivations can only be outlined so much before we transition to another scene."
 
Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter
 
END OF THE ROAD - Craig DeLeon

"Shelton, a veteran episodic director who started in music videos, brings energy and polish -- albeit not exactly the right kind of either for this story: The film moves along nicely but exhibits little flair for white-knuckle suspense or visceral action. And the warm visual palette that is at first appealing eventually becomes a nonsensical decision to light nocturnal desert settings in gaudy neon hues, as if for a rave. The routine bombast of Craig DeLeon’s score, and various preexisting pop tracks utilized, further underline an overall lack of instinct for thriller atmospherics."
 
Dennis Harvey, Variety
 
"Like the writing, the directing is serviceable, with the leads doing their best with what feels like subpar material. The action sequences tend to lack verve and the locations -- a roadside motel, a diner, a trailer park, a creepy country home with a dungeon -- seem to have been chosen from a B-movie rolodex. Scoring is omnipresent but fails to bring additional thrills."
 
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
GODLAND - Alex Zhang Hungtai
 
"Pálmason’s use of music is also noteworthy, from composer Alex Zhang Hungtai’s warped horn motif haunting the first half, to the songs characters play in the narrative, and a final juxtaposition almost comically perfect in its summarizing brilliance: a stately, patriotic Danish tune played over a succession of bluntly desolate images of Iceland, followed by a menacingly choral Icelandic song over the end credits that sounds ripped from a Viking dream."
 
Robert Abele, The Wrap 
 
"The film’s first half, redolent of 'Aguirre, Wrath of God' and 'Meek’s Cutoff,' captures the horrible drudgery of a cross-country expedition by foot, wherein the breathtaking beauty of the landscape fails to provide any relief from the physical toil of it all. 'Godland''s hyper-detailed sound design amplifies every spray of mist and the clomping of feet on muddy ground, creating a sonic landscape that’s so all-encompassing on its own that the eerie wails and moans of the score by Alex Zhang Hungtai (a.k.a. Dirty Beaches) register as portentous italicizing."
 
Carson Lund, Slant Magazine

"Both the psychological and the physical rigors of the expedition are magnified in Alex Zhang Hungtai’s other-worldly score, its ambient sounds and dissonant horns evoking everything from howling winds to whale calls."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter  
 
THE INTEGRITY OF JOSEPH CHAMBERS - William Ryan Fritch
 
"Machoian keeps the dialogue to a minimum, letting the quietly expressive Crawford carry a lot of the story with his face and his muttering. As in their previous collaboration, Machoian and Crawford balance the frequently grim subject matter with dark humor, as Joe makes up songs about himself or tries out arguments aloud to justify his various screw-ups. Sound designer Peter Albrechtsen and composer William Ryan Fritch help craft the movie’s mood, which shifts between muted realism and a deep look at what’s going on inside Joe’s head."
 
Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times
 
"Albrechtsen layers discordant ambient groans and shudders and creaks with the elemental noise of bugs, birds, animals, trees in the wind and branches cracking underfoot, together with snatches of William Ryan Fritch’s somber orchestral score. That jagged soundscape, along with the anxious notes of the setup and countless stories of hunting accidents throughout American film and literature, signals disaster."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 

LUTHER: THE FALLEN SUN - Lorne Balfe
 
"Returning director Jamie Payne (who helmed Series 5) extends the stark and amplified atmosphere of his past 'Luther' installments even as the action set pieces -- one turning Piccadilly Square into a warzone; another leaving London to explore a frozen house of horrors -- scale up, with veteran cinematographer Larry Smith bathing the film’s eeriest tableaux of domestic terror in a cold, suffusing twilight. As in previous installments of the series, Luther’s red tie -- a signature accessory -- is sometimes the brightest splash of color on the screen. Neil Cross, the series creator and sole writer, scripts 'Luther' with a sensibility so menacing and lurid that it approaches the gritty camp of recent DC superhero films, a sensation that Lorne Balfe’s taut, pulsing score only enhances."
 
Isaac Feldberg, RogerEbert.com 
 
THE QUIET GIRL - Stephen Rennicks
 
"Set to Stephen Rennick’s [sic] sweet score, which tiptoes round the edges of the film’s airy sound design, the simplicity of the story and the desire to do right by all the characters (except perhaps a prying neighbor who is sketched rather cattily) is an undoubted strength. But this is also a romantic vision of the sadness that can settle around a solitary kid like a shawl on her shoulders, and on occasion the deep investment in the long silences and sorrowful gazes that mostly make up Cáit’s life can teeter close to preciousness. When it does, though, there’s always Clinch’s superbly modulated performance, and the way the compassionate camera lavishes on Cáit all the attention that quiet, nice kids like her rarely receive, to bring us back onside."
 
Jessica Kiang, Variety 

"'The Quiet Girl' is an unassuming drama -- hushed, intimate and melancholy -- skirting the edges of sentimentality at times but invariably pulling back before it becomes a sugary cliché. That balance is maintained also in Stephen Rennicks’ lovely melodic score. This is an accomplished debut feature, its emotional rewards in inverse proportion to its scale."
 
David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter 
 
THE SEA BEAST - Mark Mancina
 
"In the impressively staged prologue, 'The Sea Beast' shows young Jacob Holland -- you may as well call him Ishmael -- clutching to shards of a broken boat. It’s a breathtaking sight, rendered all the richer via you-are-there sound design and Mark Mancina’s classical horns-and-drums score. The ship blazes red above water before the virtual camera plunges below the surface to reveal the hull torn in two. This traumatic sea beast attack gave Jacob’s life meaning: Rescued soon after by one-eyed Captain Crow (a salt-and-vinegar-sounding Jared Harris), he will spend the rest of his days chasing these creatures to the ends of the earth."
 
Peter Debruge, Variety
