Published Jan 17, 2011If you had the endurance to sit through the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night (January 16), you know that not much happened. Aside from some choice tasteless jokes from Ricky Gervais and a weird, awkward acceptance speech from Christian Bale, the program was mostly a waste of time. The undoubted highlight of the evening, however, was the award for Best Original Score, which went to former Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor for his work with Atticus Ross on The Social Network.
Looking especially dapper in a tuxedo, the once bleak electronic icon was nothing but happy with his award. "A year ago I had no idea I'd have the opportunity to score a film," he said. "The idea of standing up here to accept this award is surreal."
Reznor was so excited by the win that he even took to his semi-abandoned Twitter account, offering up a concise, celebratory "Holy shit!"
While the buzz is on that Reznor will also be looking at a potential Oscar win, the fact is that he may become a fixture in these Hollywood award shows, as he just confirmed that he will be working on director David Fincher's next project, the American rework of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
