Oscars 2021: Soul wins Best Original Score, Jon Batiste becomes second Black composer to win 

This is the second Oscar victory for Reznor and Ross

Published: 26th April 2021

The 93rd Academy Awards was held earlier today, and Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Jon Batiste won the Oscar for the Best Original Score for Soul.

The win makes Batiste only the second Black music composer to win an Oscar. He follows Herbie Hancock, who won an Oscar for the 1986 film Round Midnight.

The win also marks the second Academy Award for Reznor and Ross. They previously won an Oscar for David Fincher's 2010 film, The Social Network. Notably, the duo was nominated twice this year, for Soul and for Fincher's Mank.

The composers won the Oscar against the likes of Terence Blanchard (Da 5 Bloods), Emile Mosseri (Minari), and James Newton Howard (News of the World).
