Being a fan of Trent Reznor, the guy behind Nine Inch Nails, since the days of Pretty Hate Machine (the album that through word-of-mouth mainstreamed industrial-influenced music), it was a kick to see him (along with Atticus Ross) on the list of nominees announced by The Academy.
He is nominated in the Music (Original Score) category for the film The Social Network. Going up against John Powell (How to Train Your Dragon), Hans Zimmer (Inception), Alexandre Desplat (The King’s Speech), and A.R. Rahman (127 Hours), it will be fun to see how he fares. My money is on Zimmer, but if Reznor wins I won’t be disappointed.
