Nine Inch Nails mainstay gets nomination for Social Network soundtrack

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor has bagged an Oscar Nomination for his work on the soundtrack to Facebook film The Social Network.

Reznor and his soundtrack writing partner Atticus Ross have been nominated in the Best Original Score category for their work on the David Fincher film, and Reznor tells the Hollywood Reporter that he's "amazed" and "flattered" at the nomination.

"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."

"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."
