Legendary movie score composer Ennio Morricone has won an Oscar once again!

87-year-old Ennio Morricone is a legend among movie score composers. It is just fitting that he received an Oscar for his latest work, after already receiving an Academy Honorary Award in 2007. He was nominated six times for an Oscar in his epic career, but it had to be a Quentin Tarantino movie to finally get him a "real" Oscar.

The man is responsible for iconic movie scores including For A Few Dollars More, A Fistful of Dollars, The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, Once Upon A Time In The West, The Untouchables, Cinema Paradiso and endless more.

The Hateful Eight is not Quentin Tarantino's best movie, but the music is a classic, created by an 87-year-old prolific genius.

Ennio Morricone's score for the Hateful Eight beat out the scores for Bridge of Spies, Carol, Sicario and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
