The Social Network begins to win awards

The much-praised film centring on the history of Facebook has already started reaping the awards sown by David Fincher and team’s hard work.

The Social Network, which was made on a modest $50m budget and took $22m in its opening weekend, going on to gross $187m worldwide during its run in cinemas, has done rather well indeed.

The film, documenting Mark Zuckerberg’s rise to power as Lord of Facebook, was also tipped for an eye-popping 32 awards. Not too shabby, and a nice reward for a film that piqued the curiosity of more than just the 500 million people using Facebook already.

It’s now won thirteen of those awards, and that’s not counting the four it nabbed this weekend. To give you a solid list of what it’s pulled in so far:

Boston Society of Film Critics: Best Film, Best Actor (Jessie Eisenberg), Best Director (David Fincher), Best Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin), Best Use of Music in a Film (Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross).

Hollywood Film Festival: Ensemble of the Year (Denise Grayson, Joseph Mazzello, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Dakota Johnson, John Getz, Josh Pence, Jesse Eisenberg, Armie Hammer, Rooney Mara, Max Minghella, Brenda Song, Justin Timberlake).

National Board of Review, USA: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Eisenberg), Best Screenplay – Adapted.

Washington DC Area Film Critics Association Awards: Best Film, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor (Eisenberg), Best Supporting Actor (Garfield), Best Acting Ensemble.

And the four it nabbed at the National Society of Film Critics, USA: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (Jessie Eisenberg).

Not to mention it’s also up for six Golden Globes. A modern classic, some might say – a damn lucky cast, says TFR! More on this as it goes.
