Alexandre Desplat won for his beautiful score
The Grand Budapest Hotel took home the Oscar for Best Original Score on Sunday night.
“Merci, merci beaucoup,” said composer Alexandre Desplat as he accepted the prize. “I’ve worked with great directors and producers and I’m very grateful.”
The award was presented by Julie Andrews at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles. This is The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s fourth win of the night.
Prior to the award, Lady Gaga brought down the house with a medley of songs from The Sound of Music in honor of the film’s 50th anniversary. Andrews was notably moved following the performance.
