Three of Ennio Morricone’s most famous soundtracks

Italy had reason to celebrate at this year’s Academy Awards thanks to the well-deserved Oscar win by Ennio Morricone. The 87-year-old composer won Best Original Score for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, making him the oldest Oscar winner ever.

Morricone, who received an honorary Oscar in 2007 “for his magnificent and multifaceted contributions to the art of film music,” had been nominated five previous times.
