In the Best Original Score category composer Mychael Danna won the award for his score for the fantastical drama Life of Pi. In his acceptance speech, Danna said:

Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Well, I felt very very blessed, even before this, and I speak for the whole cast and crew, to be part of the whole Life of Pi experience. A beautiful, special film, a film of a lifetime, and I want to say thank you to Fox for being crazy enough to make this movie. I want to share this award with my director, Ang Lee – there you are! Ang, I will always treasure this voyage we made together. Thank you for guiding us to shore so safely. I want to shout out to my music crew, Rob and Doc, the musicians and singers all over the world that we recorded for this. My mom and dad, the gift of music that you gave me, thank you so much. Everyone at Fox, it’s like working with family, thank you so much. And my agents, Robert Messinger and Vasi Vangelos, my buddies back in Toronto watching, my kids back in Toronto watching, and most of all, in a room full of starlets, the most beautiful woman here, my wife Apurna. Thank you for your years of support and patience and love, it gets me through every day. Thank you. ”
