Of course, this isn’t the first time Reznor and Ross have been nominated for their work on films. Last weekend, they took home the Best Original Score award for Soul at the Golden Globes. During his speech, Reznor expressed his gratitude for being part of a theatrical project his kids could actually see. Their score for Mank was also nominated at the Golden Globes.
This latest win marks the second Critics Choice Award for Ross and Reznor. Back in 2010, they won Best Score for The Social Network and eventually won the Best Original Score Oscar for their work on the film, too.
Over the years, their music for Gone Girl and Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has also been nominated. In fact, their Girl With The Dragon Tattoo score won Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media at the 2013 Grammys.
As well, their Watchmen score won the Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited Series, Movie or Special award at the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards. Reznor and Ross are also the masterminds behind the suspenseful music for Netflix‘s Bird Box which stars Sandra Bullock and Machine Gun Kelly.
Over the years, Trent Reznor has appeared on eight different Alternative Press covers. He first appeared on the cover of AP with Nine Inch Nails back in 1990. Since Issue #31, he has appeared on various other covers and currently holds the record for the second-most AP cover appearances. Currently, Andy Black of Black Veil Brides holds the record for most cover appearances.
Soul is now streaming on Disney+.
