Oops. The Hateful Eight writer-director Quentin Tarantino made a major flub when he took to the stage to accept the Golden Globe for Best Original Score on behalf of the film’s composer, Ennio Morricone.

The director said Morricone had “never won an award for any one individual movie at a U.S. awards show” – but as many film buffs were quick to point out on Twitter, Tarantino was wrong.

The acclaimed composer has in fact won two Golden Globes, one for The Mission in 1987, and one for The Legend of 1900 in 2000. Although Morricone has never won an Academy Award for a specific movie, he did earn an honorary Oscar in 2007.

 

The 73rd annual Golden Globes, hosted by Ricky Gervais, was presented live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on NBC.
