The Academy Award for Best Original Musical (formerly known as "Scoring of a Musical Picture", "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."

Contents

According to the rules the Best Original Musical is defined as this: "An original musical consists of not fewer than five original songs by the same writer or team of writers either used as voiceovers or visually performed. Each of these songs must be substantively rendered, clearly audible, intelligible, and must further the storyline of the motion picture. An arbitrary group of songs unessential to the storyline will not be considered eligible."

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.
