After being nominated for a number of awards at this year’s Golden Globe awards ceremony, Facebook film “The Social Network” won four Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, including best drama, making it a front-runner in Hollywood’s Oscar race after sweeping several honors from critics and industry groups in recent weeks.
“Social Network” also won the best director award for David Fincher, best screenplay for writer Aaron Sorkin and best musical score, written by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
The film recounts the story of the founding of social networking site Facebook, an international phenomenon with 500 million users that was started in a college dormitory by founder, billionaire Mark Zuckerberg.
Another big Golden Globe winner was “The Kids Are All Right,” which featured two lesbian parents whose children search for their sperm donor father. “Kids” also picked up the award for best actress in a film comedy for its star Annette Bening, who portrayed one of the mothers in the film.
