    According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Grammy Award-winner was among seven composers to win BMI Film Music Awards at the ceremony, held at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

    The awards are given out to members of Great Britain’s Performing Rights Society and other European rights services, whose BMI songs received the most U.S. airplay in 2006.

    Other composers to scoop the award included Harry Gregson-Williams for Deja Vu, John Murphy for Miami Vice and Alexandre Desplat for The Queen.

    Casino Royale was Arnold’s fourth consecutive James Bond soundtrack, having joined the franchise with 1997’s Tomorrow Never Dies. He recently announced via his official website that he will return for the upcoming twenty-second 007 picture.
