The awarding of the Oscar for Best Original Score to Round Midnight has been considered one of the most controversial wins in that category, beating out James Horner 's score for Aliens , Jerry Goldsmith 's score to Hoosiers , and Ennio Morricone 's score for The Mission . In his review of the score to Hoosiers , Christian Clemmensen of stated, "The awarding of the original score Oscar for 1986 to Herbie Hancock for 'Round Midnight is considered one of the greatest of the many injustices that have befallen nominees for that category. Ennio Morricone and, to a lesser extent, James Horner were worthy of recognition that year, though Goldsmith's Hoosiers stands in a class of its own because of its immense impact on the picture." [2] Morricone, who had never won a competitive Oscar at the time, said in an interview: "I definitely felt that I should have won for The Mission, especially when you consider that the Oscar-winner that year was Round Midnight, which was not an original score. It had a very good arrangement by Herbie Hancock, but it used existing pieces. So there could be no comparison with The Mission. There was a theft!". [3]
