Trent Reznor + Atticus Ross Win 2013 Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack
Chalk up another award for Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor. The rocker, who has taken up film scoring in recent years, joined his musical partner Atticus Ross in winning the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for their work on the film ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.’
For Reznor and Ross, it was the continuance of a great musical partnership. The pair won the Best Original Score for Motion Picture at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards and the Academy Award for Best Original Score for their work on the film ‘The Social Network.’ Their work on ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ also earned them a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Score – Motion Picture.
Reznor and Ross did not attend the Grammy pre-telecast ceremonies to accept their honor, though the Reznor did tweet, “Why thanks, y’all” shortly after their category was called.
The Nine Inch Nails leader was one of the major rock winners during the early ceremonies, with Halestorm winning the Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance Grammy and The Black Keys winning for Best Rock Song for ‘Lonely Boy’ and Best Rock Album for ‘El Camino.’ Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach also won a Grammy for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical in the pre-telecast ceremony.
