The most prestigious The EGOT – Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony – is an incredible achievement for any musician / actor / creator. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are a little closer.
The Creative Arts Emmys Awards were presented last week Deadline Reports, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross from Nine inch nails and many televisions and films won an Emmy for work on the score for HBOs Guardian. These slots next to their Oscar for The social network and her Grammy for The girl with the dragon tattoo.
Now all they need is a Tony, which begs the question: How will Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross win a Tony? Pretty hate machine Jukebox musical? Off-Broadway adaptation of Call of Duty Black Ops II? Aaron Sorkin had better figure out how to turn The social network into an industrial rock opera.
But no, this is the real takeaway here Guardian had an incredible score to celebrateand that you should listen to it if you haven’t. It’s moving, sharp, and completely free of the complex moods the show is trying to beat.
“We would like to thank the television academy for the recognition. It means a lot to us and we really appreciate it, ”said Reznor in his acceptance speech. “We are very proud to be part of a show that is so relevant, smart and daring. We have changed and been affected by it, and it’s great to see it resonate with the world at large. “
