Hans Zimmer Reacts to Oscar Win in Bathrobe in Amsterdam E! News UK

Hans Zimmer reacted to his Oscar win for Best Original Score by giving a speech while dressed in a bathrobe in his hotel in Amsterdam.

The composer, who is currently on tour, won the Oscar for his work on Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic Dune.

Since he was unable to accept the award in person in Los Angeles, Zimmer celebrated with a mini Oscar statuette in the bar of his hotel in the Netherlands, wearing a fluffy white bathrobe.

Along with two photos of her look, he wrote, “It’s 2am in Amsterdam, and my daughter Zoë woke me up to go to the hotel bar. Wow!”

In an acceptance speech video posted on his Twitter account, the German composer thanked his band and Villeneuve.

“Let me say this, without you and most of the people in this room, this would never have happened,” he said. “If it hadn’t been for all the musicians in this group, all the musicians in my life, who gave me the confidence to go and do these things. If it wasn’t Denis Villeneuve, very discreetly, a saying to me, “Have you ever heard of a book called Dune? and I knew right away that I had found my soul mate. Seriously, we usually talk to a director, but with Denis, he starts a sentence and I finish it, I start a sentence, he finishes it.

In the caption, he added: “Thank you to @TheAcademy, but above all, to all the musicians of @DuneMovie and to our leader Denis Villeneuve.”

The win marks Zimmer’s second Best Original Score Oscar after 1994’s The Lion King.

Dune took home several awards on Sunday, including Best Cinematography, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, Best Production Design, and Best Visual Effects.
