Tarantino came yesterday to Rome to receive the two David awards for PF and DU he hadn't had the chance to retire before. The two prizes were presented to him by the MAestro. Tarantino said the first movie he ever saw in a theatre was GBU.

At least he got his facts wrong. Morricones last Spagie score was from 1980.

Later he also made a score for Terence Hills Lucky Luke (1991) film.

An excerpt from Vulture's interview with Tarantino:

- Ennio Morricone wrote the score for Hateful Eight. How does it sound?
- It's horrible. What do you expect me to say?

- Well, I'm excited about it. Yours is the first Western he’s scored since 1975.
- I know, and I'm not going to say shit about it. You'll hear it when you see it. It's absolutely abysmal.

- Is Morricone bringing back his whistler for this one?
- No. There’s no whistling in this score. That guy is still alive, though.

- This is the first time one of your movies has had a score. Does that mean there won't be any pop songs on the soundtrack?
- I didn’t say that.

Dutch TV interview with Morricone posted today:

Translation of the Tarantino segment, thanks to Didier Thunus:

"I don’t want to repeat myself. Can I repeat for Tarantino what I’ve done for Leone? It’s not possible, right? It would be absurd. It would make Tarantino’s movie look hideous, because that music is old, you see. I had to write it in another way. But I have written very important music for him. I don’t know if he directly realized that, or if the others did. They didn’t expect that music, that’s why they didn’t understand it. But he told me, after he had listened to it twice: it’s ok, I like it. But at first it had been a shock. He had expected something completely different. But I didn’t give that to him, because I didn’t want to give him something he knew already."

I think they're both dicks (Ennio is well known among journalists to be a tough one) but they can be whoever they want as long as they keep making great stuff. Morricone is one of these creators whose art lies in experimentation. He's always reinventing himself, just like Picasso. That's part of what makes him much more important in music history than John Williams or Danny Elfman. Few people can compose Star Wars or OUATITW, but almost nobody can compose both GBU and The Mission.

I don't know what to make of some of the things he said:"I didn't know if I was gonna write it, I didn't know if I would have had the inspiration. It's not like writing a Mass, I can write one any day". Maestro, how can you say an idiocy like that?
Another idiocy:"I couldn't write the music I wrote for Leone because that music was old. It would have made the Tarantino's film ugly". Yeah, "old", sure.

"Old" doesn't mean OUATITW's music isn't good now that we're edgy and trendy. It means that when you're a good artist, you don't do the same kind of stuff you did 50 years ago.

Rough translation of his answer about the score:

Quote
For once, QT used an original soundtrack, which I didn't like that much. It sometimes worked, and sometimes it was just too much, too radical. Anyway, it's a matter of taste.

Knowing him, I think he means that Morricone did something very similar to his non western work of the 60's/70's: the exact opposite of the "just be discreet and highlight every camera move" motto of blockbusters music. Something very Tarantinesque, in a way. I'm just interpreting.

"ENNIO MORRICONE & QUENTIN TARANTINO TOGETHER AT ABBEY ROAD FOR THE FIRST TIME TO LAUNCH THE HATEFUL EIGHT SOUNDTRACK

To mark the launch of Quentin Tarantino’s new film The Hateful Eight and its thrilling new score from Ennio Morricone, both artists met for a special event at Abbey Road Studios.

Tarantino and actors Kurt Russell and Walton Goggins watched as Morricone conducted the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in a live recording of music from The Hateful Eight, cut to vinyl. As a gift to fans, those who pre-order the album will be given the chance to receive one of these hand-stamped, direct-to-vinyl editions through www.thehatefuleightsoundtrack.com (while supplies last).

While they were at Abbey Road, Morricone, Tarantino, Russell, Goggins and the orchestra signed the famous wall outside Abbey Road, which had been covered in The Hateful Eight artwork.

Just hours later, Morricone’s score for The Hateful Eight was nominated for a Golden Globe in the Best Original Score category."

Ennio's statement:

“When Quentin first asked me to write the score for his new western, I said no. But Mr. Tarantino is an astute man, and he left the screenplay for my wife Maria to read. He had spotted who is the boss in our house. Maria realized instantly what a brilliant screenplay Quentin had written for The Hateful Eight, and she told me in no uncertain terms that I had to do it. I am so happy that I did. To work with such a brilliant young director at my age gives me great pleasure. He was just one year old when I wrote my first score for Sergio Leone for A Fistful of Dollars. It is also a deep honour and very humbling to receive this prestigious award nomination for doing the profession I love. I receive it on behalf of myself, Quentin Tarantino, The Weinstein Company, and the whole cast and crew of this remarkable film. And of course I receive it on behalf of my clever wife Maria.”

Oops, then no star. One thing those Hollywood Star guys insist on is a personal appearance and ceremony (unless you're dead--but stars can only be awarded posthumously if the awardee has been gone for 5 years (I just looked this up)). You also have to come across with $30,000 dollars, which, I'm sure, the Weinstein organization has no problem with.

It's too bad, because there is a dearth of Walk-of-Fame Stars for practicing Italians. A few fence jumpers (Bertolucci, Anna Magnani) have 'em, very few others. I guess some kind of connection to Hollywood is required.

I think Morricone/Hateful Eight is considered the frontrunner in the Academy Award category for Best Original Score



Would be the Maestro's first competitive Oscar. He got an honorary Oscar in 2007

It seems like he has been nominated 6 times in the past - never for his work with Leone.

I can't believe he did not win for "The Mission" or for "Malena"...  :(

Then again, there are so many times when I wonder why an Oscar was given to so and so in whatever category that I should probably stop thinking about such things.

It looks like legendary film composer Ennio Morricone has a new project in the works - but he's keeping it close to the vest.

Ennio Morricone came out of semi-retirement for the Oscar-nominated score of Quentin Tarantino'sThe Hateful Eight - his first Western work in 35 years.

Speaking to Deadline, the 87-year-old musician revealed that another collaboration with Tarantino could be in the offing.
 


"Tarantino has already told me that there will be a next movie that we are going to make together," the composer hinted. "I told him that in the future I would like to have much more time.

"I would like to start working with him even long before in order to have the time to work, to think about the music, and also to exchange more ideas with him about what I am going to score for him.
 
"I never ask any director to work with me, but it was Tarantino who told me, 'OK, there will be a next time'."

I wonder what they mean by semi-retirement? Over the last year or so, he has released three new scores - one for Tornatore, one for Christian Carion and this one for Tarantino. Is that not enough?

Yes, these things are political.  And would be tough to win for a "western" anyway, Hollywood stigma.  I believe a relatively large fee has to be paid to enter a choice in the nomination pool.  Apparently, I read somewhere because GBU played commercially in NYC and Los Angeles upon its restoration in 2004, it became again eligible, would've been nice to have it undergo the process to throw its hat in for Best Score, as I absolutely think it's the best example of film scoring in all of film history.  Just the Ecstasy of Gold sequence alone might be the best example of scoring, then the Trio gunfight, amazing, all timed to the score.  Throw in Father Ramirez and another half dozen original pieces, plus the GBU title track, you've got it all.

So I hope Morricone wins for Hateful Eight, would really be an honor.  I have the soundtrack CD and edited out the tracks with dialog, Quentin must be in love with his own writing to get those included.

So I still think the Academy blew it when Ennio got the Lifetime Award by not showing the entire Ecstasy of Gold sequence on the big screen before they introduced him.  But 3.5 minutes is too long for today's younger audiences.  Me - I would've showed that AND the 3-way gunfight - too many only think of the GBU title track.

Peter Bogdanovich wrote in one of his books about how when the Academy gave the lifetime achievement award to Charlie Chaplin in 1972, Bogdanovich put together the video that played before Chaplin was presented with the award. Bogdanovich's video was 13 minutes long - including the 4-minute unedited sequence from The Kid in which the Tramp runs over the rooftops to get back the kid after he is taken away by the cops. Of course, the Academy/TV people complained about such a long video being shown on live TV, but Bogdanovich fought like hell and his full video was ultimately shown.

"Maybe the next time" said the Academy each time to Morricone.

I was watching the pictures of the 12 italian stars of the walk of fame and read "Annunzio Paolo Mantovani". "Who's that?" I thought. Then I realized that it was probably the orchestra director (I've read his family  name many times but never heard a single tune by him): very famous. Abroad. Here I never heard his name a single time in my life. Then I thought about the ones who are not in the walk of fame and I still think Morricone would be better off without the star and the Oscar.

Well done Maestro..... :D

I feared that he would've been caught up in the 'Diversity' row....because I thought that the oscar panel would've got a bit put off in awarding a film with 65 'N' words.

I like to - and want to - believe that even John Williams was happy for Morricone to win; had Williams won a 6th time, would've just demonstrated the bias of the Academy, and honoring Ennio actually makes William's achievements even better, as more of true achievement.  Maybe I'm thinking that if I had won 5 times, that I'd want the most prolific and world-honored film score composer honored at this high level.

Quentin Tarrantino should thrilled that he facilitated getting Ennio this recognition by choosing/pestering him to do The Hateful Eight.  As GBU is Quentin's favorite film (other than his own), he has realized for decades that GBU is the ultimate integration of music and film, so many different original tracks in GBU, so much more than the title theme and Ecstasy of Gold.
