    One month ago exactly, reported that composer David Arnold’s score for Quantum of Solace had been nominated for an Ivor Novello Award.

    Today, the winners were announced at the ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel and James Bond unfortunately didn’t come out on top. The Quantum score lost to Jonny Greenwood’s effort for There Will Be Blood in the Best Original Film Score category.
