GHENT, Belgium -- English composer Clint Mansell was a double winner for his music in Darren Aronofsky's "The Fountain" at the World Soundtrack Awards presented here on Saturday. Mansell won the prize for best original soundtrack as well as the Public Choice Award.
France's Alexandre Desplat was named film composer of the year for scoring "The Queen" and "The Painted Veil" and David Arnold picked up the best original song award for "You Know My Name", written with Chris Cornell for the James Bond film "Casino Royale".
Greek legend Mikis Theodorakis ("Zorba the Greek") was given a lifetime achievement award while Daniel Tarrab and Andres Goldstein shared the Discover of the Year prize for their work on "XXY" and "Inheritance". The award for best young Belgian composer prize was awarded to Werner Viaene for "Belgium, the Movie" by Wim Robberechts.
Los Angeles-based Mansell, a former rocker with the band Pop Will Eat Itself, thanked Aronofsky for giving him the chance to write film music on "Requiem for a Dream" (2000) and the Kronos Quartet and the band Mogwai for performing his score. The self-effacing composer from Britain's midlands seemed genuinely surprised when his name was later called for the best soundtrack prize, triumphing over Mychael Danna for "Little Miss Sunshine", Philip Glass for "Notes on a Scandal", Harry Gregson-Williams for "Shrek the Third" and David Shire for "Zodiac".
"This is really great, fantastic," he said, struggling for words. »
