Ennio Morricone Receives His Golden Globe – By Special Delivery

When Hateful 8 won the Golden Globe for Best Score of January 10, director Quentin Tarantino stepped onstage to accept the award for composer Ennio Morricone, 87, who was unable to travel from Rome to receive the globe in person. Tarantino called Morricone his favorite composer – and not only in the movie composing world: “I’m talking Mozart, I’m talking Beethoven and Schubert,” gushed the director, “that's what I’m talking about!” Now Tarantino is not a complete stranger to, ehm, enthusiasm but in this case his words were not hyperbolic, at least not to Morricone’s legions of fans.
