From "Rule Sixteen" of the "Special Rules for The Music Awards"

Original Score: An original score is a substantial body of music in the form of dramatic underscoring written specifically for the film by the submitting composer.

The years shown are the production years, thus a reference to 1967 means the Oscars presented in 1968 for movies made in 1967.
