Social Network Oscar

The Social Network Wins 3, Loses 5 Oscars

SocialnetworkIt was a great night for The King's Speech and Inception at the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday — and a somewhat more disappointing outcome for their main rival, David Fincher's .

Fincher's movie, a fictionalized account of the rise of Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, still won three Oscars. Writer Aaron Sorkin, also known for West Wing and A Few Good Men, won Best Adapted Screenplay (it was based on Ben Mezrich's book "The Accidental Billionaires"), while Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor won Best Original Score for the movie's haunting music. The movie also won an award for Best Film Editing.

But The Social Network had been nominated for eight awards — and had been hotly tipped for Best Picture until The King's Speech started picking up buzz several months ago. It failed to win for Best Cinematography, Best Actor, Best Director or Best Picture. The King's Speech took home five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor for Colin Firth. Chris Nolan's dream-within-a-dream Inception also won five, including Best Special Effects for its stunning computer-generated imagery.

For The Social Network's fans, it will be especially disappointing that the movie won awards for sound, vision and script — but apparently was not better than the sum of those parts. And in what seemed almost like a snub, Sorkin's acceptance speech was one of them that was cut short by the Academy's "play them out" music.

Still, for a movie that's all about a nerd who fights to be popular but fails to fit in, it seems an appropriate outcome.
