Trent Reznor admitted he and collaborator Atticus Ross are still processing receiving Oscar nominations for their music for 'Mank' and 'Soul' this year.
Trent Reznor hasn't "processed" his double Oscars nomination.
The Nine Inch Nails musician and his collaborator Atticus Ross - who first won an Oscar for best original score 10 years ago for 'The Social Network' - are nominated for their music on 'Mank' and 'Soul' this year and Trent admitted it still doesn't feel real.
He told Billboard: "We haven’t had time to fully process what’s happening. When we work on a project, much like when we’re sitting down to write a song for Nine Inch Nails, we aren’t thinking about writing something we hope charts. We’re just trying to make the best song we can.
"When we’re working on a film, we put a lot of thought into trying to make the right choice as to what we should pursue. We try to find camps that we can learn from and be inspired from. Then you get into the world, you immerse yourself in it and lose track of time."
David Fincher has directed 'Mank' and Reznor jumped at the chance to work with him again, after previously collaborating on 'The Social Network, 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' and 'Gone Girl'.
He said: "To my mind, he’s one of the greatest living directors. When I first met David, I was incredibly intimidated by him partly because his vocabulary is so wide-ranging. But every experience has been a journey I will always remember — and I can’t stress enough how rewarding each has been."
