Trent Reznor wins Oscar

Written by Bex Logan on February 28, 2011

Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor and co-composer Atticus Ross took home the Academy Award for Best Original Score for their work on the David Fincher, Aaron Sorkin film The Social Network.

The Oscar will make a nicely matched book end with the Golden Globe for Best Original Score – Motion Picture Reznor and Ross snagged last month.

Despite Reznor’s chart success as the leader of Nine Inch Nails, The Social Network soundtrack only peaked at No. 20 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

He’ll score Fincher’s upcoming English-language version of The Girl With a Dragon Tattoo.
