5:39 pm - Trent Reznor, the Nine Inch Nails singer and rock auteur who is nominated for "The Social Network" score, said in the lobby of the Kodak Theatre as the show was about to begin that his first true foray into Hollywood -- and the Hollywood awards season -- has, in fact, tamed some of his relentless competitive spirit.
"I've gotten to know the other nominees and I like them. They're really cool and there's so much I know I can learn. So there's none of that cutthroat competition I would usually have."
He waited a long beat and then added a conspiratorial whisper: "That's just a lie."
