'Joker' composer Hildur Guðnadóttir first woman in 20 years to win Academy Award for original score

Brave!
The 37-year-old Guðnadóttir, who first came to prominence in the Icelandic experimental band Múm, previously won the Golden Globe and BAFTA awards for her “Joker” score. The last woman to win in the category was British composer Anne Dudley, who won for 1997’s “The Full Monty.” Only seven women have ever been nominated in the Oscars’

The Icelandic composter is just the fourth woman to win in the Oscars' scoring categories and the first since 1997.
