Creative Arts Emmys: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Are One Tony Away From EGOT

Nine Inch Nails multihyphenates Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won an Emmy on Thursday, making the pair one Tony away from EGOT status.

On the strength of their work on Damon Lindelof’s HBO limited series Watchmen,  based on the DC Comics graphic novel, they won an Emmy for original dramatic score for a limited series, movie or special. Accepting the award, Reznor called Watchmen “relevant, smart and daring.”

They were also nominated in the category of outstanding original music and lyrics for the series’ song “The Way it Used to Be.”

Reznor and Ross previously won an Oscar for the score of David Fincher’s The Social Network and a Grammy for the score soundtrack to Fincher’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Reznor has two additional Grammys for Nine Inch Nails’ music).

Their upcoming work includes Fincher’s Mank, a Netflix biopic about Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, and Pixar’s next animated feature, Soul.

Reznor and Ross recently discussed their work in an episode of THR’s Behind the Screen podcast.

The virtual Creative Arts Emmys presentation concludes on Saturday. A complete list of winners (so far) can be found here.
