“You think, ‘I’m probably not going to win, but if I do win, I’d better not sound like an idiot.’ The anxiety builds. Then you realise you haven’t eaten in 12 hours. And the camera’s on you, maybe, at all times. ‘I need to pick my nose, but I can’t risk it.’ Then you hear your name in slow motion. ‘OK, hug my wife. Don’t trip over the chord. Why am I taking steps two at a time? I’m going to slip, but I can’t stop. Oh, my God, there’s Nicole Kidman, she’s nine feet tall. Is the mike on?’ It’s over in a millisecond, and you’re backstage with an Oscar in your hand.”

Year Zero


According to NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor, the long-rumored television series based on NINE INCH NAILS‘  2007 album “Year Zero” is making progress. Reznor told the Los Angeles Times, “We are in pre-production with HBO and BBC America to do a miniseries. It’s exciting. I probably shouldn’t say too much about it except that I understand that there’s a thousand hurdles before anything shows up in your TV listing. It’s been an interesting and very educational process and it cleared the HBO hurdle a few months ago and now we’re writing drafts back and forth. So it’s very much alive and incubating at the moment.” 

Reznor is working with the team of Lawrence Bender (producer of Quentin Tarantino films such as “Pulp Fiction”, “Inglourious Basterds” and “Reservoir Dogs”) and Kevin Kelly Brown  (executive producer on “Roswell”) for the television series.
