Trent Reznor Nominated For An Oscar
On Tuesday, Trent Reznor and his longtime collaborator Atticus Ross were nominated for an Academy Award for the score to David Fincher's "The Social Network," which is also up for seven other Oscars. They're fresh off picking up a Golden Globe for the music, a success the Nine Inch Nails main man was clearly surprised by: On his Twitter account shortly after that announcement, he posted a concise, two-word victory speech: "Holy s---!" Reznor and Ross aren't exactly a shoo-in to walk away with the prize, given that the category is consistently competitive. This year, the other nominees include Hans Zimmer for "Inception," A. R. Rahman for "127 Hours," John Powell - the only composer in the list not nominated for a Golden Globe - for "How to Train Your Dragon" and Alexandre Desplat for "The King's Speech." Rahman was also nominated in the Best Original Song for "If I Rise," which he worked on with Dido and Rollo Armstrong. Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me Yet," the "Burlesque" song that won at the Golden Globes, did not receive a nomination. Reznor is already at work on a soundtrack for a new film, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," also directed by Fincher. It's scheduled to be released in December. Thanks for the report to
