The Italian composer won the Best Original Score prize at the ceremony in Los Angeles on 10 January (16) for his work on The Hateful Eight, but he was unable to attend the glitzy bash, so the film's director, Quentin Tarantino, accepted the honour on his behalf.

However, Morricone, 87, will now receive the prize at a special tribute event in Rome attended by his friends and colleagues including his longtime collaborator, director Giuseppe Tornatore.

The event will be held at the flagship branch of jewellery brand Bulgari, and Lorenzo Soria, president of the Golden Globes' Hollywood Foreign Press Association, will hand the trophy to Morricone.

The prize marks Morricone's third Golden Globes win, after previously picking up awards for 1987's The Mission and Legend of 1900, his 2000 collaboration with Tornatore.
