There’s no doubt that a large portion of the population enjoyed watching The Social Network, but if you close your eyes and take a look past the tale of deception and betrayal that unfolds in the storyline, what you actually hear is the sound of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross blowing your mind away.

Their sonic contribution to the film helped it snag one of its four Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, and now it looks as though Reznor and Ross are set to do it again. The American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its nominees for the 83rd edition of the Academy Awards and The Social Network is in the running for eight, including one for “Best Music (Original Score).”

Hans Zimmer is also nominated for his contribution to Inception, and while seeing the flick sweep is an intriguing possibility, we’re just glad the duo are receiving some well-deserved credit.

Check out the complete list of nominees here, and don’t worry if Reznor doesn’t hoist an Oscar – we’ve always got The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo to look forward to anyway.

The Oscars air Sunday, February 27th on ABC.
