“I have now worked in this profession that I love for many years, always with humility and complete dedication,” said Italian composer Ennio Morricone on Saturday, January 30, at the Bulgari Domus in Rome, where he was presented with his Golden Globe award for best original score for his work on Quentin Tarentino’s 2015 film, The Hateful Eight. The 87-year-old wasn’t able to attend the original awards ceremony held in Beverly Hills in early January, so the Hollywood Foreign Press Association brought his statue to Italy where Bulgari, which announced funding for a documentary currently in production about Morricone, threw a party in his honor. Also on hand was director Giuseppe Tornatore who is currently filming The Glance of Music about the composer who has penned over 500 scores for cinema and television—including all of Sergio Leone’s films since the Dollars Trilogy, and all of Tornatore’s films since Cinema Paradiso—as well as over 100 classical works. Beyond this awards season, the prolific Morricone may find himself in the spotlight again very soon.
