The only thing better than witty dialogue is the soundtrack that accompanies it.

Tonight, the 91st annual Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, Black Panther won the highly coveted award for Best Original Score.

The film was up against BlacKkKlansman, If Beale Street Could Talk, Isle of Dogs and Mary Poppins Returns.

The Academy first debuted the Best Original Score category back in 1934. Previous winners include The Shape of Water, La La Land, The Hateful Eight, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Gravity, Life of Pi and The Artist.
