Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have won an Oscar for their score to The Social Network.

The Nine Inch Nails man and composer won in the Music (Original Score) category at last night's (February 27) Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.

Also nominated in the category was Hans Zimmer, for his work on Inception. Johnny Marr also contributed to that score.

Accepting his award at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, Reznor said: "Wow. Is this really happening? When we finished, we were very proud of our work and happy to just be involved in this film, and to be standing up here in this company is humbling and flattering beyond words."

The Social Network took home two further awards last night - for Adapted Screenplay and Film Editing.

Beyond Zimmer the other Music (Original Score) nominees were A R Rahman for 127 Hours, John Powell for How To Train Your Dragon and Alexandre Desplat for The King's Speech.

Elsewhere at the Oscars The King's Speech won Best Picture and lead Colin Firth won Best Actor.

Meanwhile, Reznor and Ross had already won a Golden Globe award last month for their score.
