♪♫ Trent Reznor's Oscar shocker
There were many things confusing about the Oscar show Sunday night. Was James Franco stoned? Did we really need to see James Franco in a pink dress? Where did all that cute chemistry go between James Franco and Anne Hathaway? Why, James Franco, why?
But the most confusing of the Oscars? The award goes to Trent Reznor. I'm thrilled he won the award. His music made "The Social Network" gleam in all its creepy undercurrents, and his songs have been making films more outstanding for years. But last night's clean-cut appearance and short, sweet acceptance speech in which he thanks his wife goes against every single Trent Reznor virtue I value.
Reznor happily married? He's supposed to be twisted and dark and (Warning: the following link will take you to a place where he uses Melissa Leo-kind-of words) hates to love you! Reznor in a tux? He's supposed to be sporting scraggly hair and trying to murder David Bowie.To a generation of maudlin teenagers, Reznor created a soundtrack of violent, borderline-psychotic love songs filled with surrealist imagery and angst.
