Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition For A Limited Series, Movie Or Special (Original Dramatic Score) for their work on the HBO miniseries Watchmen. They won against the scores for Hollywood, Little Fires Everywhere, Mrs. America, and Unorthodox.

The main 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony will be telecast this Sunday (9/20). Earlier this week, the scores for The Social Network and Quake were released on vinyl:
