[AWARDS SEASON] Music on the Golden Globe 2016

Beginning of year is the time for season awards of TV and film. In January we had the 73rd edition of the Golden Globe Awards and, as it should be, the nominees for Best Original Score and Best Original Song!

In the instrumental category we had the American composer Carter Burwell by Carol (Todd Haynes, 2015), the French Alexandre Desplat for The Danish Girl (Tom Hooper, 2015), the British Daniel Pemberton with Steve Jobs (Danny Boyle, 2015), the Japanese-German duo Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto for The Revenant (Alejandro González Iñárritu, 2015) and the winner of the night: the Italian composer Ennio Morricone by The Hateful Eight (Quentin Tarantino, 2015).

In singing category, we had David Lang for "Simple Song # 3" in Youth (Paolo Sorrentino, 2015); Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Ali Payami, Ilya Salmanzadeh with "Love Me Like You Do" in Fifty Shades of Grey (Sam Taylor-Johnson, 2015); Brian Wilson, Scott Montgomery Bennett with "One Kind of Love" by Love & Mercy (Bill Pohlad, 2014); Justin Franks, Andrew Cedar, Charlie Puth, Wiz Khalifa with the beautiful tribute to Paul Walker "See You Again" in Furious

Seven (James Wan, 2015) and the winners Sam Smith and James Napier with "Writing's On The Wall", music-theme of Spectre (Sam Mendes, 2015), new James Bond adventure.

No doubt the competition was strong, however, the statuette went to Ennio Morricone for Best Original Score, well earned for the master behind the musical compositions of the spaghetti western classics like the works of Sergio Leone. As well as the Best Original Song went to Sam Smith and James Napier singing the song that packs all adrenaline and action of Spectre, by the famous and loved spy James Bond.

May the Force be with you, ladies and gentlemen
