Morricone is nominated for an Oscar this year for best original score for his work on the Weinstein Co. film “The Hateful Eight,” directed by Tarantino. The film won the 2016 Golden Globe for best score.

He began his career as a music composer in 1961 with the film “Il Federak,” directed by Luciano Salce.

The composer has received 27 gold discs, seven platinum discs and three Golden Plates. The soundtrack for “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2009, and Morricone himself won the prestigious Polar Music Prize the following year.
