“Completely surreal” is how composer Trent Reznor describes his best original score nom for “The Social Network,” adding that he almost missed the announcement thanks to some technical difficulties at home. “It was panic this morning because somehow my internet and TV had a complete media blackout at the crucial moment, but it turned out all was well in the end,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter.
