For his original score of Joe Wright’s Atonement (also for Focus Features), Dario Marianelli won the Academy Award, the Sammy [Cahn] Award, and the Golden Globe Award; and was a BAFTA Award, Critics’ Choice Award, European Film Award and double World Soundtrack Award nominee. He had previously scored the director’s Pride & Prejudice (also for Focus), for which he was an Academy Award, Ivor Novello Award, European Film Award, and double World Soundtrack Award nominee; and was honored with the 2006 Classical Brit Award for Best Score.
