Did Grammy wins for ‘Black Panther’ and ‘BlacKkKlansman’ clear up the Oscars’ toughest category?
There may be no Oscar category less predictable this year than Best Score. But could the Grammys point the way to the winner? The recording academy honored the year’s best musical achievements on Sunday night, and two of the Oscar nominees were among the victors: Ludwig Goransson (“Black Panther”) and Terence Blanchard (“BlacKkKlansman”). Does that boost their chances with the motion picture academy?

Goransson won Best Visual Media Score for his “Black Panther” compositions. He defeated last year’s Oscar winner, Alexandre Desplat (“The Shape of Water”), as well as John Williams (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”), Michael Giacchino (“Coco”) and Benjamin Wallfisch and Hans Zimmer (“Blade Runner 2049”). Goransson also claimed Record of the Year and Song of the Year for his work on Childish Gambino‘s “This is America.” That isn’t nominated at the Oscars, of course, but Oscar voters might be aware of it.
