The incredibly prolific composer Ennio Morricone, who has 528 film scores under his belt, will accept a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Academy Awards this Sunday night.
Morricone's most famous compositions are heard during The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West, and, more recently, The Untouchables and Bugsy. A number of Morricone's scores are being reissued this year, as well as a tribute album featuring contributions by Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, and others.
