The Social Network has been experiencing a recent wave of award-winning lately. With three “Best Picture” awards in three different cities, it’s fairly safe to say that this movie is going to win the coveted Oscar for the same category, which is fine because this movie deserves it.
I guess you’re bound to make a perfect movie if you’re doing scenes with 50 takes each. I’m not David Fincher, but man that sounds grueling for everyone on set. In Blue Valentine, most scenes, if not all, were done in one take. But then again, Ryan Gosling prepared for that role for 4 years and Michelle Williams prepared for 6. Sounds difficult any way you slice it.
Three massive feathers in the Oscar Best Picture cap for David Fincher’s The Social Network were handed out yesterday with The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Online and the Boston Society Of Film Critics all proudly calling it their best film of 2010. No matter how you shake it, that’s a huge, early sign of Oscar confidence in the film, especially when the LA critics awarded Fincher the Co-director win (alongside Olivier Assayas for Carlos), Best Screenplay and Best Score.
The Boston Critics also awarded Jesse Eisenberg as Best Actor for his egotistical, neurotic and elitist portrayal of Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg. [via Obsessed With Film]
