Yesterday, the nominations for The 73rd Golden Globes were announced. Ryuichi Sakamoto was nominated along with Alva Noto for their score for “The Revenant”, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu. He has previously won 2 Golden Globes for his film scores, for 1987’s “The Last Emperor” and for 1990’s “The Sheltering Sky.” The awards ceremony will take place on January 10 in Beverly Hills, California.
