reznor-ross-globesThe Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) have announced the winners of the 68th Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best in film and American television of 2010.

In the Best Original Score category composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won the award for their score for David Fincher-directed Facebook movie The Social Network. In their acceptance speech, Reznor said:

“This is really flattering to be recognized in this field, thank you very much. A year ago I had no idea I’d be having the opportunity to score a film, and the idea of standing up here accepting this award is completely surreal. Thank you. We would like to collectively thank David Fincher, Aaron Sorkin, Scott Rudin, Amy Pascal, Lia Vollack, Ren Klyce, and everyone involved with this picture, as well as our wives and families. Thank you so much.”

The other nominees were Alexandre Desplat for The King’s Speech, Danny Elfman for Alice in Wonderland, A.R. Rahman for 127 Hours, and Hans Zimmer for Inception.

In the Best Original Song category, the winner was Diane Warren won for her song “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” from the Christina Aguilera/Cher screen musical Burlesque. Warren dedicated her award to the late music publicist Ronni Chasen, who had been tragically murdered several weeks previously.

The other nominees were Christina Aguilera, Samuel Dixon and Sia Furler for “Bound to You” from Burlesque; Bob Di Piero, Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey and Troy Verges for “Coming Home” from Country Strong; Alan Menken and Glenn Slater for “I See the Light” from Tangled; and Carrie Underwood, David Hodges and Hillary Lindsey for “There’s a Place for Us” from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

    I thought you liked “The Social Network.” It got a higher star rating than Inception, after all, and the review made it seems like a high three-and-a-half stars.

    The great thing about opinions is that they are free to shift slightly. Since I reviewed these scores (and have listened to them more subsequently), my opinion of The Social Network has gone down, so much so that if I were to review it again today I would probably give it 2-stars. Any of the four other nominated scores – Inception included – would have been a more worthy winner IMHO.
