Trent Reznor and Laura Linney pick up Golden Globe Awards

The news this morning is all about the Golden Globe Awards, and in particular a shock win for Nine Inch Nails (NIN) frontman, Trent Reznor. The 45 year old electro-rocker never expected a nomination, yet at the 68th Award ceremony he, along with British Muso, Atticus Ross, walked away with the award for ‘Best Original Score-Motion Picture’ for the soundtrack to “The Social Network.”

Reznor’s gloomy yet tense tones perfectly encapsulated the mood for the film which follows the ups and downs of Mark Zucherberg’s odyssey towards building Facebook.

Elsewhere popular actress Laura Linney won a Golden Globe for her work on the ‘Showtime’ production, “The Big C” but was unable to be there in person to collect the award. Linney’s father, Romulus Linney died at his home in Germantown, N.Y., from lung cancer the night before the Golden Globe Awards ceremony. Romulus Linney was a respected playwright.

Laura Linney won the Golden Globe for Best Actress, playing Cathy Jamison on “The Big C,” a comedy show broadcast by Showtime. The show follows the lives of a high school teacher and mom, whose life changes when she discovers she has stage 4 cancer.

The award last night is Linney’s second, her first being the ‘Best Performance by an Actress In a Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television,’ coming for her part in the 2009 mini-series, “John Adams.”
