Nine Inch Nails also picked up another accolade recently, having won his first Emmy, making him one step closer to an EGOT. Now Trent Reznor just needs to pen a Broadway show to snag a Tony.
Reznor was on hand at the Rock Hall ceremony last year in 2019 to induct The Cure.
“I’ve been, let’s say, ambivalent about certain award ceremonies… they’ll acknowledge X but they won’t even recognize The Cure. Then I got a call I wasn’t expecting, and I’ve never been so happy to eat my words.”
The ceremony was originally scheduled for May 2 at Cleveland’s Public Hall and was first postponed to November due to the ongoing pandemic. In July, the Rock Hall, faced with the current unpredictable conditions, decided on making it a virtual affair.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2020 Induction Ceremony airs on November 7 at 8 p.m. Eastern on HBO.
