Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won their first Emmy for HBO's critically acclaimed sci-fi drama "Watchmen."

The duo won the Emmy for original dramatic score for a limited series, movie or special category.

"I'd like to thank the Television Academy for the recognition—it means a lot to us and we truly appreciate it," Reznor said. "We're very proud to be involved with a show this relevant, smart, and daring. We were changed and affected by working on this and it's great to see it resonate with the world at large."

"Thank you Damon Lindelof for assembling such a talented group of collaborators and providing us such a broad canvas to paint on," he added. "And lastly thanks very much to our families for tolerating us spending some long weeks and months in this cave. We love you, and thank you."

The pair were also nominated for outstanding original music and lyrics for the song "The Way it Used to Be," but Labrinth won the award for his song "All For Us" from Euphoria.

The pair had previously won an Oscar for the score of David Fincher's The Social Network and a Grammy for the soundtrack to Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Reznor and Ross now only need a Tony Award to achieve EGOT status.
