Trent Reznor won a Golden Globe for an animated Disney movie

Read that headline again. Would you ever have expected to see something like this 25 years ago?

Last night (February 28), Trent and collaborator Atticus Ross won a Golden Globe for Best Original Score for Soul, an animated feature from Disney. In his acceptance speech, he acknowledged that “this is the first piece of art I’ve made in my life that I can show to my kids.” (The jazz parts of the film were written by Jon Batiste, the frontman for Stephen Colbert’s band, so he got an award, too.)

Reznor and Ross have written the scores for The Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl, and Bird Box.

Amazing for a guy who used to write songs like “Head Like a Hole” (which talks about black souls) and this one from The Fragile.
