German film score composer Hans Zimmer scored at the Academy Awards, claiming the Oscar for the music of Dune.

Although Zimmer did not attend the ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles as he is on tour with his band in Europe, he did take to Twitter to accept the award. In a bathrobe.

The two-time Academy Award winner tweeted, "It’s 2am in Amsterdam, and my daughter Zoë woke me up to go to the hotel bar. Wow!!"

Zimmer previously won in 1994 for Disney's animated The Lion King.

His victory was widely predicted, as Zimmer had already won the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Critics Choice Awards for his music for Dune --Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the sci-fi classic.

This is the German-born composer’s second collaboration with the director, after Blade Runner 2049. In an interview to Variety, Zimmer said that writing music for Dune fulfilled a dream because he had read Frank Herbert’s novel when he was 18 and often imagined what the music of Arrakis might sound like.

“One of the major themes of the book was the power of women,” Zimmer told Variety last year. “We were dealing with a culture that was extraterrestrial. I felt that the only thing that should be pure – and even that shouldn’t be quite pure – was the voice. I was trying to do the inner voices of the characters, without using words.”
