Trent Reznor is having a highly successful year thus far. After earning a Golden Globe last month, the Nine Inch Nails frontman, along with collaborator Atticus Ross, took home the Academy Award for Best Original Score Sunday night (Feb. 27) for their work on David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network,’ which was also up for seven other Oscars.
After beating out composers John Powell for ‘How to Train Your Dragon,’ Hans Zimmer for ‘Inception,’ Alexandre Desplat for ‘The King’s Speech’ and A.R. Rahman for ’127 Hours,’ the musician posted a note on Twitter similar to the one he made after landing a Golden Glob win. “HOLY S[---] doesn’t seem enough…” he tweeted.
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. The film is also directed by David Fincher and is scheduled for release in December.
