Academy Award for Best Original Musical


Academy Award for Best Original Musical

The Academy Award for Best Original Musical (formerly known as "Best Original Song Score and Adaptation Score" and "Best Original Song Score") is a category still in the Academy rulebooks, but cannot be awarded unless "the field of eligible submissions is determined to be of sufficient quantity and quality to justify award competition."

This award has never been presented under its current name. The last time Best Original Song Score was awarded was at the 57th Academy Awards ceremony (1984) to Purple Rain.
