“Soul” is also nominated for an Oscar for best original score.
Jon Batiste, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won a BAFTA Award for best original score for Soul on Sunday (April 11). The awards, presented by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, were broadcast on the BBC.
This is the first BAFTA win for all three composers. Reznor and Ross weren’t even nominated for a BAFTA for The Social Network, the 2010 film for which they won an Oscar. They were BAFTA-nominated for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (which, surprisingly, failed to land an Oscar nod).
The director and the rock star composer have now collaborated on four films and discuss their work on the overwhelming Oscar favorite, plus why Bird Box made no sense and whether Fight Club could come to Broadway. Read more on Guardian.
By now, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross should be getting use to their names being called in the score category when awards season rolls around. The pair — who won an Academy Award in 2011 for their pulse-pounding work on David Fincher’s The Social Network — saw their names in the mix not once but twice on Monday (March 15) when the nominations for the upcoming Oscars were announced.
