For we awards-obsessed writers and editors at Gold Derby, the Golden Globe Awards are the official launch of a winter full of trophies, surprises, snubs, red carpets, acceptance speeches, tear-inducing emotion and forgettably cringe-worthy moments.

Hildur Guonadottir (‘Joker’) is the 1st solo woman to win a Golden Globe for original score

Hildur Guonadottir (‘Joker’) is the 1st solo woman to win a Golden Globe for original score
On Sunday night, Iceland native Hildur Gudnadottir became the first solo woman to ever win Golden Globe for her original score for “Joker.” The last female to win was in 2001, when Lisa Gerrard shared the honor with Hans Zimmer for “Gladiator.”

Gerrard was also co-nominated for a Globe previously for 1999’s “The Insider” and 2001’s “Ali.” The last woman up for the prize was Karen O alongside Carter Burwell for “Where the Wild Things Are.”

The first female nominee was Marilyn Bergman, who shared writing duties with husband Alan Bergman and Michel Legrand for the score for 1983’s “Yentl,” a musical based directed by and starring Barbra Streisand as a Jewish woman who lives and dresses as a man so she can study Talmudic Law.
