Earlier this week, Oscar Winning composer, James Horner, tragically died in a place crash near Santa Barbara. Horner was 61 years old and as an artist, provided us with some of our favorite movie scores.
Here are some of the films Horner scored over his career:
Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan, Aliens, Field Of Dreams, Glory, Apollo 13, Clear and Present Danger, Jumanji, Titanic, Braveheart, Troy, The Amazing Spider-Man and James Cameron's Avatar. We can next here the work of James Horner in Southpaw, the boxing drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
Of course, James Horner won two Oscars for his incredible work on James Cameron's Titanic, an iconic, heartwarming and romantic score that is synonymous with that groundbreaking film. He won for both Best Original Score and Best Original Song, "My Heart Will Go On" performed by Celine Dion.
As a huge fan of film scores, James Horner is a composer I'd often listen to. My personal favorite of his being for Avatar for which he was Oscar nominated. The score is beautiful, exciting, thrilling and adventurous.
Horner was nominated for 10 Oscars, for the films: Aliens, An American Tail, Field Of Dreams, Braveheart, Apollo 13, Titanic, A Beautiful Mind, House Of Sand And Fog and James Cameron's Avatar.
The film industry lost a great artist this past Monday but Horner was also a husband and father of two children, so please be respectful in the comments.
