Not wanting an Oscar


In the manic frenzy running up to the Oscars on 25 February, it is bizarre to hear that one person at least, doesn’t want to win an Oscar. Studio Briefing reports that composer Ennio Morricone, who has scored over 400 films, including spaghetti westerns like “For a Few Dollars More’ and “The Good The Bad & The Ugly’ is “dispointed’ that he is to receive an honourary Oscar at this year’s event.

The disappointment reportedly stems from the fact that Morricone fancied the idea of following in the footsteps of iconic director Stanley Kubrick in never winning an Oscar.

In the past, the 70-year old Morricone has received Oscar nominations for “Days of Heaven’, “The Mission’, “The Untouchables’, “Bugsy’ and “Malena’.
