It’s D-Day for The Social Network, which finally reaches theaters today after weeks of hype. It’s already earned the money reviews from the likes of EW and the New York Times—now it needs the box office to truly become a top Oscar player. As far as the major categories are concerned, it certainly seems on its way to a Best Picture nomination and also has a strong chance at scoring nods for Jesse Eisenberg (Best Actor) and, most likely, Andrew Garfield (Best Supporting Actor), but at this early date its best shot at an actual win feels like Best Adapted Screenplay. In Part 2 of our video interview with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and the film’s cast, we discuss some of the best “talky” movies of all time, this one included.
