The Social Network Movie Wins Four Golden Globes

Posted Jan 17, 2011

Last night The Social Network movie won 4 Golden Globe awards at the 68th annual Golden Globe awards last night. David Fincher won an award for the best director, Aaron Sorkin won for best screenplay, Trent Reznor and Atticus Rose won awards for scoring the music, and the movie won Best Picture.

The movie opened when Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) and Erica Albright (played by Rooney Mara) were talking about Finals Clubs. Erica broke up with Mark in the opening scene by saying:

“You are probably going to be a very successful computer person. But you?re going to go through life thinking that girls don?t like you because you?re a nerd. And I want you to know, from the bottom of my heart, that that won?t be true. It?ll be because you?re an asshole.”

While the screenplay writer Aaron Sorkin was on stage at the Golden Globe awards, he did not want people to think of Mark Zuckerberg as an asshole so he said:

?I wanted to say to Mark Zuckerberg, if you?re watching tonight, Rooney Mara?s character makes a prediction at the beginning of the movie, she was wrong. You turned out to be a great entrepreneur, a visionary and an altruist.?
