Nine Inch Nails founder and main member Trent Reznor picked up an Oscar award last night for Best Original Score thanks to his work with Atticus Ross on the acclaimed movie, The Social Network, a film about Facebook's founder Mark Zuckerberg. Reznor and Ross were able to win despite stiff competition from Hans Zimmer and his work on the sci-fi hit, Inception, as well as beating three other big films in, How To Train Your Dragon, The King's Speech and 127 Hours.

Congratulations on the oscar Mr. Reznor! Unfortunately the best song from the soundtrack didn't make it into the movie. This song would have been ten million times better than the Beatles track at the end of the movie. I'm still shocked this song isn't in the film
