Oscar music winners

50 years of Best Original Song Oscar winners

Arguably the best moment of Sunday night's Academy Awards ceremony was when John Legend and Common won the Oscar for Best Original Song for Selma's "Glory."

To celebrate this moment and the history of great songs written for films, we compiled a Music Monday playlist with every Best Original Song Oscar winner from the past 50 years. Enjoy this musical trip back through time — and reminder that Three 6 Mafia has more Oscars than Leonardo DiCaprio.
