Titanic Composer James Horner, 61, Dead In Plane Crash

24 June 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two-time Oscar winner James Horner, whose emotive scores for modern classics including Titanic and Braveheart cemented him as one of Hollywood’s most adored composers, died in a California plane crash Monday, his agency, Gorfaine/Schwartz, has confirmed. The Los Angeles native was 61.

A beloved figure in the entertainment industry, Horner was perhaps best known for his work on the 1997 film Titanic, which won the Oscar for Best Picture. The James Cameron-directed romance led to two Oscar wins for Horner – one for original dramatic score, and the other for original song (shared with lyricist Will Jennings and performer Celine Dion) for “My Heart Will Go On.” His score sold 27 million copies worldwide, becoming a financial phenomenon in the composing world.

Horner is believed to have been flying a single-engine S312 Tucano turboprop plane when the vehicle crashed in a remote area approximately 60 miles from Santa Barbara, killing the pilot. »

People who fueled the plane at an airport in Camarillo confirmed that he took off in the aircraft Monday morning, said Horner's attorney, Jay Cooper.

The S-312 Tucano MK1 turboprop crashed and burned in a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

Horner's credits ran the gamut From big-budget blockbusters to foreign-language indies. He even composed the theme song for the "CBS Evening News with Katie Couric. »

On Monday, composer James Horner died in a plane crash outside Santa Barbara, California. He was 61.

The Hollywood Reporter has released a tribute to James Horner by James Cameron.

“No matter how [‘Titanic’] turned out, and no one knew at that point — it could have been a dog — I knew it would be a great score.”

“I was doing a lot of thinking about James when I heard the news and I checked online. The beginning and end of his filmography are films that he did, or would have done, with me. It’s a curious bookend. We both started out on the same film in 1980, and his last listed films are the Avatar sequels, »

R.I.P. James Horner: A top tier contributor to cinematic music

23 June 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It was with great sadness that we learned yesterday of the death of composer James Horner at just 61 years old. Horner died in a plane crash, piloting a small aircraft that went down a day ago in California. The composer is a multiple Oscar winner, taking home Academy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Original Song for Titanic, marking just one of his many collaborations with filmmaker James Cameron. All told, Horner was nominated by the Academy ten times, with various other nominations and wins to his credit. He was a well respected musician and giant in the industry, so he will certainly be missed in a big way. Horner was cited by the Academy for his work on not just Titanic, but also Aliens, An American Tail, Apollo 13, Avatar, A Beautiful Mind, Braveheart, Field of Dreams, as well as House of Sand and Fog.

'Titanic' Composer James Horner's Plane Crashes, Pilot Dead

22 June 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A single-engine plane registered to Oscar-winning "Titanic" composer James Horner crashed Monday in Southern California, but the identity of the one person who died has not been released.

The crash happened at about 9:30 a.m. near Quatal Canyon in Los Padres National Forest, Ventura County fire spokesman Mike Lindbery said.

The pilot was killed. No one else was on board.

Jay Cooper, an attorney for Horner, said the plane was one of several owned by the 61-year-old composer, and that no one has heard from him since the crash.

"It was his plane and if he wasn't in it, he would've called," Cooper said.

The plane was an S-312 Tucano MK1 turbo-prop with two seats, said Ian Gregor, spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

Crews extinguished a fire that erupted in vegetation surrounding the remote crash site, about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles.

Horner has been nominated for 10 Academy Awards, »

The Precedent for an Eddie Redmayne or Michael Keaton Oscar Win

19 January 2015 8:53 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With Michael Keaton winning the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy and Eddie Redmayne winning for best actor in a drama, both men continue establishing themselves as the frontrunners in this year’s lead actor race at the Oscars.

Though not new to films, Redmayne starred in Oscar-nominated films such as Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2008) and Les Miserables (2012). His performance as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, however, propelled him to widespread acclaim and put him on the radar. He is one of four best actor nominees — along with Keaton, Benedict Cumberbatch and Steve Carell — to receive their first nomination this year.

For most of his career, Keaton was known for his comedic roles, such as Mr. Mom (1983) and Beetlejuice (1988), and for his turn as Batman in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). These roles earned Keaton praise and »
