Notes

The 1934 film "One Night of Love" received the first Oscar for Best Music (Score). While Schertzinger and Gus Kahn were credited with thematic music, the award was presented to the head of the studio's music department between 1934 and 1937. In this case, the award went to Louis Silvers of Columbia.
