“The Social Network” Kicks Off Award Season With Three Wins

by Dan Koelsch

There a time in which The Social Network, David Fincher’s drama about Mark Zuckerberg’s creation of Facebook, was a joke. However, since it’s release, the film has generated a lot of buzz, including amonst critics. Thus, it isn’t too surprising that the Sony Pictures film did so well at this year’s National Board of Review Awards, which is the first major award ceremony for the 2010 award season.

The Social Network took what might be considered the top three honors, winning Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor (for Jesse Eisenberg’s portayal of Zuckerberg). Could this be a predictor of the film’s potential at The Academy Awards? There are a lot more awards before Oscar, but the NBR results hold some considerable weight.


What do you think? Does The Social Network deserve an Oscar for any category? Was it the best film of the year? Let us know in the comments below.
