Desplat's work includes The Queen, Julie & Julia, The Ghost Writer, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Fantastic Mr. Fox (best original film score winner). Ryan Bingham and T-Bone Burnett took home the award for Best Original Song Written for Film for Crazy Heart's "The Weary Kind," while A Single Man composer Abel Korzeniowski was named Discovery of the Year, and the film's score won the Public Choice Award.
