BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – The “Social Network” won top honors Sunday at the Golden Globes with four prizes, including best drama and director, solidifying its prospects as an Academy Awards favorite. Congrats!
The Social Network received more nominations than any other movie this year from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which runs the Golden Globe Awards.
While Facebook publicists maintain that the movie isn’t a factually correct account of the company, the public has come to regard it as such. So the multiple Globe wins, including best dramatic picture, seems to benefit the real-life social network.
The timing of the Globes tends to influence people’s expectations for the Oscars, although the former includes television while the latter only deals with movies. Nominations for the 83rd annual Academy Awards are expected to be announced at 8:30 am January 25, and the ceremony will take place February 27.
