Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Won an Emmy for Watchmen

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are a moving little closer to the most prestigious award combination in the world of entertainment, the EGOT—Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony is an impressive achievement for any artist. This last week, the Creative Arts Emmys Awards have been going on. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails and a lot of TV and movies won an Emmy for their work on HBO Watchmen.

Reznor And Ross Have Been Previously Recognized For Their Incredible Work

Two artists behind industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor, and Atticus Ross already received an Oscar in 2011. And in  David Fincher’s The Social Network. At the Grammys in 2015, while, the pair shared the award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, recognized for their work in Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

“We’d like to thank the Television Academy for recognition. It means a lot to us, and we truly appreciate it,” Reznor said, in a pre-taped acceptance speech. “We’re very proud to be involved with a show this relevant, smart, and daring. We were changed and affected by working on this, and it’s great to see it resonate with the world at large.”

The Story Of Watchmen

Watchmen is created by Damon Lindelof and music by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The story is based on a Comics series that is created by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Watchmen projects in an alternate version of the 20th century. Where vigilantes who were once celebrated as heroes, have been outlawed. Due to their violent techniques of getting justice. In this version of America, there are episodes of racial brutality breaking out in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Where yellow-masked police officers face off with a white supremacist group known as the Seventh Cavalry.

All That Is Left Is A Tony For Trent Reznor And Atticus Ross

Now all that is left is a Tony, which brings the question: how are Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross going to win a Tony? Pretty Hate Machine Jukebox musical? Off-Broadway adaptation of Call of Duty: Black Ops II?

Honestly, the real takeaway here is that Watchmen had an incredible score worth your time and that you should check it out if you haven’t. It’s stirring, sharp, and entirely complimentary of the complex moods that the show endeavors to strike.
