'All Quiet on the Western Front' and 'RRR' take music awards at the Oscars

German composer Volker Bertelmann. also known as Hauschka, won the original score Oscar Sunday night for his music for the World War I epic 'All Quiet on the Western Front'. For this adaptation of the Erich Maria Remarque classic, Bertelmann used his great-grandmother’s turn-of-the-century harmonium, a pump organ whose carefully mic’d interior noises - “the breathing, the air, the wooden cracklings” sounded to him like “a war machine.” The song 'Naatu Naatu' by M.M. Keeravaani and Chandrabose from the hit Telugu-language film 'RRR' has made history by becoming the first Indian film song to win an Oscar, beating heavyweights like Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
