    Michael Giacchino named '09 Oscars' Music Director

    'Ratatouille' composer named music director

    Posted: Mon., Nov. 17, 2008, 10:22am PT
    By Associated Press via Variety


    The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has tapped "Ratatouille"composer Michael Giacchino as music director for the upcoming Oscars ceremony.

    The Emmy-winning "Lost" and "Speed Racer" composer and conductor was selected by Oscar producer Laurence Mark and executive producer Bill Condon, also newcomers to the ceremony. They selected fellow Academy Awards first-timers Roger Goodman to direct, and David Rockwell as set designer for the Feb. 22 show.

    Giacchino, who was nominated last year for an original score Oscar for "Ratatouille," has never conducted a live telecast before. He said he hopes to inject some Hollywood nostalgia into the live ceremony when he leads the orchestra pit at the Kodak Theatre for the ceremony.

    I'm really thrilled about this and for him, a global showcase, not bad at all.

    Haha, I've been busy today and without a computer last night! But yes, you do need to expand out of there more often!
