Alberto Iglesias is still reaping the rewards for his composing work on three of last year’s highly acclaimed films.
The 57-year-old Spanish composer was named film composer of the year at the World Soundtrack Awards.
Iglesias, who received an invitation this summer to become a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, was heralded for his work on the soundtracks for Le Moine (The Monk), The Skin I Live In and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy.
In addition, the academy also awarded Iglesias with the award for best original film score of the year for Tinker, Tailor.
Iglesias defeated fellow Latino nominee Cliff Martinez, who served as the composer on the films Contagion and Drive, in both categories.
Iglesias previously received the Hollywood Film Composer Award at the 15th annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards for his work on Pedro Almodóvar’s haunting The Skin I Live In and Tomas Alfredson’s Cold War thriller Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy.
The World Soundtrack Awards took place on Sunday, October 21, as the closing event of the 39th Ghent Film Festival.
