Trent Reznor's 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Score Gets No Oscar Love

By January 24, 2012

Follow me on:

At last year's Oscars, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor joined the likes of Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen in the ranks of rock artists who have won an Oscar. Honored for his score (with longtime collaborator Atticus Ross) for The Social Network, Reznor had a chance to go 2-for-2 with his and Ross's score for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which award prognosticators thought had a decent shot at getting serious consideration for this year's Academy Awards. Well, you can forget that: The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and Reznor and Ross didn't make the cut for Best Score.

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.
