Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are among the nominees for this year’s Academy Awards. The musicians were nominated in the “Best Original Score” category for their work on the scores for “Mank” and “Soul.” The latter found the duo collaborating with Jon Batiste. The awards ceremony will broadcast on April 25.
Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have won a Golden Globe Award in the “Best Original Score – Motion Picture” category for their work on the score for “Soul.” The duo collaborated on that piece with Jon Batiste.
Trent Reznor is the latest artist to comment on the disturbing abuse allegations that have been leveled against Marilyn Manson. The Nine Inch Nails frontman issued a statement saying that he has “been vocal over the years about [his] dislike of Manson as a person.”
Reznor previously signed Manson to Nothing Records and produced his first two albums. The two then ended up having a falling out in the late 90s, though Manson later claimed that they had made amends.
More recently, Reznor was brought into the conversation surrounding the abuse allegations against Manson after an excerpt from Manson’s 1998 autobiography “The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell” resurfaced on social media. In that passage, Manson claimed that him and Reznor sexually assaulted a drunk woman together. Reznor has since called that story a “fabrication” in a statement to Pitchfork:
“I have been vocal over the years about my dislike of Manson as a person and cut ties with him nearly 25 years ago. As I said at the time, the passage from Manson’s memoir is a complete fabrication. I was infuriated and offended back when it came out and remain so today.”
Reznor’s comments come after Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland recently said that “every single thing that people have said about [Manson] is fucking true.”

New episodes of Netflix’s “Song Exploder” are expected to be released on December 15 and one of them will focus on Nine Inch Nails‘ “Hurt.” That track is from the band’s 1994 album “The Downward Spiral“ and it was famously covered by Johnny Cash in 2002.
Executive producer Hrishikesh Hirway commented:
“I first interviewed Trent Reznor for a Nine Inch Nails episode of the podcast back in 2017, and afterwards, as I was packing up my microphone and laptop, he asked me, ‘Have you ever thought about making this into a TV show?’ It was just a glimmer of an idea back then.
I’m so excited that it’s come to life, and I get to share four more episodes of the series with these beloved artists. They’re all so different from one another in terms of sound and background, and I can’t wait for people to see and hear their stories, and the unique path they each took to create these songs.”
In addition to the “Hurt” episode, “Song Exploder” will also have new episodes focusing on Dua Lipa’s “Love Again,” The Killers’ “When You Were Young,” and Natalia Lafourcade’s “Hasta La Raíz.”
