Trent and Atticus are one step closer to an Emmy

According to this PDF on the official website for the Emmys, music from the HBO Series Watchmen earned two nominations:

Outstanding Music Composition For A Limited Series, Movie Or Special(Original Dramatic Score): Watchmen β€’ It’s Summer And We’re Running Out Of Ice (note: in the event you have not had the opportunity to see this fantastic show, that's the title of the opening episode)

Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics: Watchmen β€’ This Extraordinary Being / Song Title: The Way It Used To Be (note: if this song hadn't been nominated, I'm not sure I would have bothered posting anything about the Emmys at all)

Does this mean TR & AR can take a break from doing the rounds in the press? Never! Will the acquisition of an Emmy have the kind of butterfly effect that finally fulfills the prophecy of old that Trent Reznor will write music for Fight Club: The Musical, opening the possibility of an EGOT for the man that a 1997 issue of Time Magazine named as one of the 25 Most Influential Americans?
