Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste won the Oscar for Best Original Score at the 93rd Annual Academy Awards for their work on the Pixar film Soul.

The win put a cap on a successful awards season for Reznor, Ross and Batiste, who also won the Golden Globe for Best Original Score for Soul. In September 2020, Reznor and Ross would also win the Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited Series, Movie or Special for their work on HBO's Watchmen. Reznor and Ross won their first Academy Award in 2011 for Best Original Score for The Social Network.

While Reznor is certainly no stranger to the world of film and television score writing, most still know him best as the creative force behind Nine Inch Nails. As a result, when Reznor won his second Oscar, plenty of people took to Twitter to point out just how wild it is to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer on the prestigious award show stage. Here are some of the best reactions and (very) funny jokes.
