Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have won Best Original Score for the second time at the Academy Awards.
11 years after they took home the award for The Social Network score, the duo have once again won Best Original Score for Disney/Pixar’s Soul alongside Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste. Reznor and Ross were actually nominated for Best Original Score twice this year for their work on Soul and David Fincher’s Mank.
Though Reznor and Ross kept it brief during their acceptance speech during a post-win meeting with the press, Reznor revealed he’s ready to work on new Nine Inch Nails material.
“Ten years ago, when we did The Social Network, which is the first film that we worked on, it was such a great experience. We just came out of it inspired and re‑energized, and it was working on a medium we hadn’t done before and learned so much, that we felt like, hey, let’s do a Nine Inch Nails record; let’s go on tour.”
He continued, “And what we’ve tried to do since then is break it up where we do some rock music, we come back and do some film work. We’ve just done three pretty big films in Watchmen, Mank, and Soul in a row. We should be on tour but COVID has prevented that. We are planning on working on Nine Inch Nails material as soon as, probably tomorrow.”
