Jonny Greenwood has won another award for the ‘There Will Be Blood’ soundtrack at the Evening Standard Film Awards.
The succes of the film came unexpected for Jonny: “It’s quite a surprise, cause it’s a very tough film… in a good way”. Although he was not too dissapointed about missing out on the Acadamy Awards: “It’s funny. As you get temped by that kind of thing, you start thinking they’re important. Two months ago you didn’t care at all. It’s interesting, they suck you in a little bit, but I’m happy the film is being recognised. And I’m happy Paul Thomas Anderson trusted me to put noise all over his film.”
He didn’t plan on going to the Evening Standard Film awards ceremony, but changed his mind when Thom Yorke called him a coward: “We tend to avoid these things as Radiohead, but Thom made me come. As soon as he said he would, I thought it would be fun to go.”
Thom Yorke told BBC Radio 1: “We watched the film last night and I was really proud. The weirdest thing was I recognised loads of the melodies because I have heard him play them on the piano. I was hoping to nick a couple of them but unfortunately they are on the film!”
There are no other soundtracks planned: “This year is all about Radiohead and a baby,” Jonny said. Therefore he will not be attending the Bafta Awards for which his score is nominated, because Jonny is likely to father another child on the date of the ceremony: “I might need to be closer to her than the awards ceremony.”
