Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score

This page lists the winners and nominees for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, since its institution in 1947. The organizer, Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), is an organization of journalists who cover the United States film industry, but are affiliated with publications outside North America. Since the 5th Golden Globe Awards (1947), the award is presented every year, except from 1953 to 1958. The nominations from 1947 and 1948 are not available.
John Williams is the artist with most nominations (19); those resulted in 4 wins. Dimitri Tiomkin had the same number of wins, but out of only 5 nominations. Other notable achievers include Maurice Jarre (10 nominations, 3 wins) and Alan Menken (5 nominations, 3 wins). Artists like Jerry Goldsmith (9 nominations) and Michel Legrand (7 nominations) were nominated several times, but never received the award. Additionally, Dimitri Tiomkin received Special Achievement Awards for his services to film music in 1955 and 1957, as did Hugo Friedhofer in 1958.
