Oscar nominations: David Fincher credits his team
David Fincher's award season still looks bright. The "Social Network" director saw his film pull in eight Oscar nominations Tuesday morning, including a nod of his own as best director. In a statement, he has this to say:
“I’m very grateful and humbled by the nominations for 'The Social Network.' I’m incredibly proud of the work of my wildly talented collaborators in front of and behind the camera — all of whom gave the best of themselves and their talents in service to a film about a ground-breaking American innovation. This directing nomination represents the sum of the work of all of us, and I want to acknowledge the vast contributions to this film of all of my good friends and creative partners. The success of our movie belongs to many people, and this nomination is theirs to share.”
