Reznor and Atticus Ross's score in running for Academy Award

Trent Reznor and co-composer Atticus Ross have been nominated in the best original score category at this year’s Oscars.

The pair’s score for Facebook drama The Social Network is up against scores for How to Train Your Dragon, Inception, The King’s Speech and 127 Hours.

The duo are the favourites for the award, having won the best original score honour at the Golden Globes ceremony earlier this month.

They pair are writing the score for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, due out at the end of this year. The adaptation of Stieg Larsson‘s best-selling novel sees the pair team up with The Social Network director David Fincher again.
