A month later, though, Spielberg himself presented the award for Best Film Score alongside composer John Williams. Spielberg said that Williams' score was "the record of a lifetime" and that commissioning and creating his own score was a way for Wright to reward Spielberg for his direction, as well as himself. "The two of us are sharing the same holiday. It's not a family Christmas, but it's holiday enough -- which is where I'm going next!" he said.
Several of Land of the Lost's songs have become standard holiday fare, most notably "Cannibal Feasts" and "Someday Soon." The latter song thematically related to the series is one of Zimmer's personal favorites.
Brave - Music for the Motion PictureZimmer is one of the more recent examples of scoring a film based on someone else's story (commonly known as original film music), in this case he scored Brave, taking over for Mark Isham after the latter's death. The film was directed by Mark Andrews and also starred Kelly Macdonald, Emile H. Clasen, and Kelly Mantle. The film tells the story of Merida, a spirited, tomboyish Scottish warrior princess, who defies her father in order to pursue her own destiny. Music plays a large part in the storytelling of this film.
Zimmer composed the score for Sunset Boulevard. He also won the Academy Award for Best Original Score for the film adaptation of Shrek (2001), which he co-wrote with his brother Patrick Zimmer. He also won the Academy Award for Best Original Score for Gladiator (2000), for which he also co-wrote the song 'Still The One' (nominated).
Zimmer won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music for the series Stark Raving Mad (1997-1999). He also won another Oscar and two Grammys for the score for The Lion King.
