Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won the Best Original Score for a Motion Picture during Sunday’s Golden Globes.

The Nine Inch Nails duo earned the award for their work on the Disney/Pixar film Soul, which also featured music from The Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste. They were also nominated for their score of the David Fincher film Mank.

Reznor, 55, breathed a sigh of relief when accepting his golden trophy and joked, “I think this is the first piece of art I’ve ever made in my life that I can actually show my kids.”  He also shouted out his wife in his brief acceptance speech. 

Reznor and Ross are quite the accomplished duo, as they are a mere Tony Award away from becoming official members of the EGOT club and winning the Triple Crown of Acting. 

The two have won an Oscar in 2010 for The Social Network, an Emmy Award for composing the music for the HBO series Watchmen, and a Grammy for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. They also previously won a Golden Globe for The Social Network.

As for when the two might dabble in Broadway — that could be in the cards as Reznor has flirted with the idea of bringing a musical based on the 1999 dark comedy Fight Club to the Great White Way.  As for what kind of musical he wants to compose, the NIN frontman previously expressed he’s leaning toward turning it into a rock opera.

But, with Broadway shut down because of the ongoing pandemic, it is unknown when Reznor will turn his years-long dream into a reality and work toward becoming an EGOT and Triple Crown of Acting winner.
