“Joker” composer Hildur Guðnadóttir made history by becoming the first woman in 19 years to win best original score at the Golden Globes. Guðnadóttir was the sole female nominee, besting Randy Newman (“Marriage Story”), Alexandre Desplat (“Little Women”), Thomas Newman (“1917″) and Daniel Pemberton (“Motherless Brooklyn”) to win the prize. She is a classically trained cellist from Iceland. Elton John and Bernie Taupin finally won a major award together after collaborating for 52 years. John and Taupin won best original song for writing “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from the “Rocketman” biopic.
