Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor and frequent NIN collaborator Atticus Ross (also How To Destroy Angels) have won a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score for their compositions on The Social Network, the 2010 film about Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook.

The Golden Globes were presented last night. The Social Network was nominated six times and won four Golden Globes, including Best Motion Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay.

The Social Network soundtrack album was released in October by The Null Corporation, Reznor's own independent record label. A five track sampler EP is available for download at the whopping price of your e-mail address at this location.




According to Billboard, while accepting the award, Reznor said, "A year ago I had no idea I'd have the opportunity to score a film. The idea of standing up here to accept this award is surreal."

Shortly after winning, Reznor Tweeted, "Holy shit!"

Earlier this year, Reznor announced the duo would once again be collaborating with The Social Network director David Fincher by composing the score to the US film adaptation of the bestselling novel The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, set for release in late 2011.

Scoring one of the best movie of 2010 is a sellout?

In my top3 of 2010 movies for sure, the OST was good too, and I can't remember many others who would have deserved the award, so fair play.

Well, weren't there more epic films with cool soundtracks? I can't remember the OST of this film.

Trent Reznor - The Lord of Soundtracks
Seriously, I loved the Quake soundtrack.

Well, good for him! Trent is a great composer and has done much exemplary work in his career. Receiving an award for composing what is considered the "Best Original Score" is quite an honorable accomplishment.
JohnDoe - 18.01.2011 at 00:56  
Well, good for him; I saw the movie and the soundtrack was quite nice.

You guys are crazy. People know who Reznor is so he's clearly a sellout PLUS Social Network had a wide release. Total sellout!!!! You guys are just too brainwashed by the media to understand!
JohnDoe - 18.01.2011 at 05:12  
Why is he a sellout? because he did the soundtrack for a movie? it's just work after all, it means that he is a respected musician. The music of the movie was very nicely done, gave the movie a good atmosphere. I dunno, calling him a sellout is just a tad too much.
Kratos - 18.01.2011 at 05:43  
Congrats to him, but damn from that picture he does not look like an ex-crackhead or anything

The guy who streams most of his new music for free online? For sure he is a sellout... And the soundtrack fucking rocks cocks and socks.
