TRENT REZNOR Calls Winning GOLDEN GLOBE Award A 'Surreal' Experience

NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor and collaborator Atticus Ross won best original score for "The Social Network" at the 68th annual Golden Globe Awards Sunday night (January 16) in Beverly Hills, California. The Facebook-inspired film led all Golden Globe winners with four awards, including best dramatic picture.

"A year ago I had no idea I'd have the opportunity to score a film," Reznor said. "The idea of standing up here to accept this award is surreal."

"It's not a movie about Facebook," Reznor said. "It's about creativity and consequences. It's about people."

"I feel spoiled by this whole thing," Reznor said of the music he created for "The Social Network". "It was so smooth really."

"There was hard work, but there really was never moments of desperation creatively where we were looking for ideas or approaches," Reznor added.

In an interview with PBS' Tavis Smiley, Reznor said he initially turned down director David Fincher's offer to score the film. "It took a long time in the '90s to get my act together," he said. "Jump ahead to this past decade and I got sober and I worked on myself and the act of creativity became something I looked forward to now instead of dreading."

He added: "At the time when fame presented itself to me, I was not at a point in my own life where I was equipped to deal with it. I had a built-in sense of not being good enough that I've carried with me from wherever it's come from, and an easy way to fit in was to self-medicate... Twenty years into making music, the soundtrack has been a breath of fresh air."
