"Holy shit!" - Trent Reznor

Trent Reznor

"Oscar winning Indian musician A.R. Rahman lost out the Golden Globe in the Original Score category to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who won for their music in The Social Network.

The 45-year-old musician was up for his second Golden Globe for the Danny Boyle film 127 Hours and had just a day earlier bagged the best original song trophy at the 16th Critics' Choice Awards for his number 'If I Rise' from the film.

The musician who had won his first Golden Globe in 2009 for another of the British director's film, Slumdog Millionaire, is in the running for his second Oscar with the song, which is collaboration between him and British popstar Dido.

"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," said Reznor, who is the frontman of the rock group 'Nine Inch Nails', in his acceptance speech." [The Hindu]

Trent's next soundtrack conquest will be "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" (which is appropriate since Lisbeth Salander (the girl with the tattoo) is probably a Nine Inch Nails fan. Trent recently revealed that information in a NY Times "TimesTalks" event where he was interviewed by music critic Jon Pareles. You can watch most of it in the videos below...

YES!!!!!! so happy for Trent, whose mother recently passed away unexpectedly. yes i am a big NIN fanboy.

Atticus deserves alot of attention too. his NIN & How To Destroy Angels work, as well as his soundtrack for Book of Eli, is phenomenal.

or maybe it so appropriate just because the two films share the same director, ah?

Lisbeth would be listening to some Euro-Crap death metal. NIN is way to mainstream for her and also a little 'dated'. Trent looks good for 45. His band blows though. Kind of like that other guy, Elfman, from the shit group Oingo Boingo who scores every movie now.

I know Lisbeth, and she certailny is a trent reznor fan.

In fact one time she posted on "I'd hit it" under a picture of his wife. True Story.

@9:59- I thought Trent looked pretty dapper in that suit and tie... he cleans up quite nicely!

12:49: Agreed. I like this new image he's been presenting the past couple of years. And I'm not even a huge fan of NIN either.
