Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Lead Society of Composers and Lyricists Award Nominations With Three
The team of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross leads all nominees for the second annual Society of Composers and Lyricists Awards, the organization of scorers and songwriters active in visual media.
The composing duo (who won an Oscar 10 years ago for “The Social Network” and an Emmy last year for “Watchmen”) received three nominations. They were cited for outstanding original score for a studio film for both their 2020 films, Netflix’s “Mank” and Disney-Pixar’s “Soul.” They share the “Soul” nod with composer Jon Batiste, who contributed the jazz threaded throughout the film. Reznor and Ross received a third nomination, for outstanding original song for visual media, for their song “(If Only You Could) Save Me,” written for “Mank.” SCL’s list is notable for the dominance of women composers in the category of outstanding original score for an independent film — three of the five nominees: Lolita Ritmanis for the Latvian international-film entry “Blizzard of Souls,” Tamar-kali for “Shirley” and Sherri Chung for “The Lost Husband.” https://variety.com/2021/music/news/society-composers-lyricisist-awards-nominations-2021-1234896924/
