It marks Reznor and Ross’ first Emmy win.
“I’d wish to thank the Tv Academy for the popularity—it means rather a lot to us and we actually respect it,” Reznor stated. “We’re very proud to be concerned with a present this related, good, and daring. We had been modified and affected by engaged on this and it’s nice to see it resonate with the world at massive. Thanks Damon Lindelof for assembling such a gifted group of collaborators and offering us such a broad canvas to color on. And lastly thanks very a lot to our households for tolerating us spending some lengthy weeks and months on this cave. We love you, and thanks.”
Reznor and Ross had been up for 2 awards in complete tonight: Excellent Music Composition and Excellent Authentic Music & Lyrics, the latter for the Watchmen music “The Manner It Used to Be.” Labrinth won the latter award for his work on Euphoria.
With tonight’s win, Reznor and Ross at the moment are a Tony Award away from reaching the complete EGOT. They gained the Oscar for his or her The Social Community soundtrack (which simply bought a vinyl reissue) and a Grammy for his or her Woman With a Dragon Tattoo rating. 9 Inch Nails jukebox musical, anybody?
