The Social Network made a real sensation on 16th January at the Golden Globes, when it scored 4 trophies, after being nominated for 6 categories. It even beat Inception, which surprisingly didn’t win anything, and also the Black Swan, two movies which raised a lot of expectations from the fans.
Here’s what The Social Network won:
- Best Motion Picture – Drama: it beat Inception and the Black Swan
- Best Director: David Fincher
- Best Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin – Inception is taken down again.
- Best Original – Score Motion Picture: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross in The Social Network, winning in front of Inception once again.
However, you can’t beat them all, so we didn’t have the chance to see Jesse Eisenberg becoming best actor (lost in front of Colin Firth from The King’s Speech), neither Andrew Garfield winning Best performance by an Actor in a supporting role (lost again for Christian Bale from The Fighter)
Other disappointment of the night was Mad Men loosing to Boardwalk Empire at Best Television Series – Drama, and also The Big Bang Theory to Glee. It seems like Don Draper (Jon Hamm) didn’t make use of his karma at the category of Best Actor, neither Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) at Best Actress.
Meanwhile, I’m curious if The Social Network will create the same buzz at the Academy Awards also. On 25th January we’ll find out the nominations, so stay tuned.
What do you think of this year’s Golden Globes. Did the winners meet your expectations?
