    First Trent Reznor and now maybe Mike Patton. Couldn’t be happier for both of them.

    I a huge Patton fan and it would be awesome is he actually won this. However I personally feel Cliff Martinez should win it (I have no idea if he’s even nominated.) Both “Only God Forgives” and “Springbreakers” were pretty damn awesome.

    Oh, the score for “Maniac” was pretty damn amazing as-well!!!
