This is all the more surprising since the two men had received a Golden Globe nomination for Dragon Tattoo at the end of last year, although they didn't win. The guys will just have to settle for their Social Network Oscar for now.
In other rock-related Oscar news, Chris Cornell's song from Machine Gun Preacher, "The Keeper," failed to get an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. It too had received a Golden Globe nomination but failed to win. So none of these guys will have to worry about busting out their tux February 26, which is when the Oscars will be held in Los Angeles.
