Reznor and Ross have won the Golden Globe twice for Best Score, for 2010’s The Social Network and 2011’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Both those films, likeGone Girl, were directed by David Fincher.

Reznor said  not long ago that he didn’t envision working with many directors aside from Fincher: “I don’t see myself being the guy that takes on five pictures a year, because I don’t think it could hold my interest. And also, I don’t think the experience would be as stellar as working with David Fincher. My experience has taught me there aren’t that many people out there that are that are that exceptional.”

Reznor and Ross also won the Oscar for Best Original Score for The Social Network.
