Mozart of film music
From the site:
Among the many extraordinary achievements in Ennio Morricone’s career, two in particular stand out. Firstly, he has composed the scores of more than 400 films, including several of the best-known ever written. Secondly, he has never won an Oscar. Maybe that will change this year, with Morricone’s nomination for his score for Malena. But, since he’s up against the likes of Gladiator and The Patriot, he isn’t holding his breath.
