Jonathan Nolan said he met Ramin Djawadi when he did additional music in Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins". He later chose him to compose his CBS show "Person of Interest", and he was constantly amazed with his work and described him as "unbelievably talented", and said that sometimes they intended to use a song in the show (for example in the very ending of the very last episode), but then Ramin presented them to an original piece he wrote and they chose to use that instead. Later Nolan was highly impressed with Ramin's work on the HBO hit series "Game of Thrones", and he chose Ramin to serve as composer in his HBO show "Westworld".
Ramin is the first television composer in history to receive his own live orchestral tour around the United States which is centered exclusively on the soundtrack of a television series, Game of Thrones. Ramin received high acclaim from fans, musicians and critics alike during his run in the show but his recognition peaked after the season 6 finale, The Winds of Winter.
Has twins (b. November 2013) with his wife Jennifer Hawks.
Won his first Emmy Award in 2018 for the season 7 finale of Game of Thrones, while having a second nomination in the same category for an episode in the second season of Westworld. Earlier he was also nominated for a Grammy award for the seventh season of Game of Thrones.
Is the third composer in history to win the Television Composer of the Year Award in the World Soundtrack Awards, a relatively new category that added to the ceremony in 2016. He was nominated in all the three years preceding his win, and won in the 2018 ceremony for his work on Game of Thrones (seventh season), Westworld (second season) and The Strain (fourth season).
