Here is his reaction when he learned that he was nominated for the Oscar

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Completely surreal" is how composer Trent Reznor describes his best original score nomination for "The Social Network," adding that he almost missed the announcement thanks to some technical difficulties at home.



"It was panic this morning because somehow my internet and TV had a complete media blackout at the crucial moment, but it turned out all was well in the end," he tells The Hollywood Reporter. Given the dark, industrial work he's known for with his band Nine Inch Nails, you might expect Reznor to dismiss something as mainstream as an Oscar nomination, but such is not the case. "I'm just very proud to be involved with a film of this caliber and working with these people. We got so close to this film - I've seen it hundreds of times and I still really love it. I didn't realize it would resonate with people as much as it has. It's been amazing and flattering to see what's happened." In light of the non-traditional approach he and co-writer Atticus Ross took to the score, Reznor says he's as surprised as anyone to be recognized by the Academy. "When we did this film, the concept of an Academy Award was not even in my sphere of imagination," he tells THR. "Atticus and I generated a bulk of music to send to David Fincher and we felt that 50 percent of it was too much because this isn't a movie about the end of the world - it's about nerds in rooms and betrayal and internal emotion. But we were surprised by what David responded to; we realized that he was willing to take chances and let the music play a pivotal role in the picture. When it was all finished I felt like we contributed a lot. It's not a traditional score, and I'm proud of that." So does Reznor see himself composing a more traditional Hollywood score some day? "Absolutely," he says. "I'm interested in the discipline and I'm interested in the challenge of working in the more traditional sense. I look at working with (a traditional orchestra) as something I haven't done yet and I've always been intrigued by it. I would be up for that challenge."

Funny quote from Twitter:

Trent Reznor scored The Social Network like an animal and now he's going to feel his Oscar from the inside.

I really love the simplistic feel that of "Hand Covers Bruise."

The first awards show, that I saw Trent and Atticus walk up on the stage in their tuxedos, I think was the Emmy Awards (not sure). I couldn't help but wonder what some of the people involved in the decisions for choosing the nominees/winner, would think if they knew that one of the lines that this man has been screaming thousands of times over the last 15 years is, "Your god is dead, and noone cares. If there is a hell, I'll see you there." I know that doesn't matter. I just think that some most likely do not realize this and would be appalled and disgusted if they knew.

I am glad this did not affect their judgments, and glad that he has received these awards and honors. I do hope they continue with more movie scores. I think that their contribution definitely made this movie better.
Keep it up Trent.

They won the Golden Globe award for that same movie The Social Network.

Yes it is a great moment for an unconventional artist to win a big award like the Oscar.

It is a great day !

I think you're right. I think it was The Golden Globe Awards that I was referring to. I couldn't remember which award. It was sometime in January.
