Trent Reznor never expected to earn a Golden Globe nomination for scoring "The Social Network," yet the Nine Inch Nails frontman got more than he could have hoped for during the 68th Annual awards ceremony Sunday night (Jan. 16): he won. Reznor, along with English musician Atticus Ross, took home the award for "Best Original Score-Motion Picture" for the gloomy, tension-filled songs heard throughout the film, which details the ups and downs Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg experienced while creating the popular social networking site. Former Golden Globe winners Alexandre Deslpat for "The King's Speech," A. R. Rahman for "127 Hours" and Hans Zimmer for "Inception" were nominated in the category. Previous nominee Danny Elfman for "Alice In Wonderland" also earned a nod. Reznor's win comes on the heels of landing another high-profile scoring gig. The 45-year-old Pennsylvania native is writing and recording the music for "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," based on the best-selling novel by Stieg Larsson. Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.

    I was honestly surprised when I saw this. I didn't think it was possible to beat Hans Zimmer. While I love both Trent and NIN to death, on a musical level, I believe Hans should have won. Though when put in perspective of their respective movies, they both did very, very well setting the mood, so it could have been a tie.

    true and all, even if he doesnt want it i believe that the corporation behind the promotion of the movie need this kind of award to gain credibility. I like the soundtrack, its awesome, it deserved to win. Who cares about the actual prize at least it got recognized
