Trent Reznor Wins An Oscar
Who would have thought that the man who wrote the lyrics, “I want to f*#k you like an animal”, would win an Oscar? That’s exactly what happened Sunday night when Trent Reznor snagged himself a pretty trophy in front of all the Hollywood heavyweights.
The Nine Inch Nails frontman and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross won the “Best Original Score” honor for The Social Network at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.
“Wow, is this really happening?,” said Reznor in his acceptance speech. ”When we finished work on The Social Network, we were very proud of our work and happy just to be involved in this film. To be standing up here in this company is humbling and flattering beyond words.”
This is not the first time the duo were honored for their work on the soundtrack. Reznor and Ross won the “Best Original Score” trophy at the Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles last month. Next up for the pair is to score the music for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the film adaptation of the best-selling novel.
Trent Reznor has come pretty far from his Pretty Hate Machine days. Check out the video for “Head Like A Hole” to see what I’m talking about. As long as he stays away from the Twilight franchise, I’ll be fine. I would hate to see one of my favorite artists get involved with glittery vampires.
