In this entry I will deal with the years between 1981 and 1990, in a reverse chronological order as in the first entries of course. Although we would have a peculiarity here, because in '82 and the following year not only an Original Score was awarded but also an Original Song Score and its Adaptation or Best Adaptation Score, I will ignore that fact and concentrate on the Original Score.
Here are links to the other journal entries belonging to this (still shamefully incomplete) series:
Part 1 (2008-2001)
Part 2 (2000-1991)
