The momentum for the crowning of The Social Network at the Oscars next month continues apace with the movie picking up 4 awards at the Golden Globes last night, including Best Score (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross), Best Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin), Best Director (David Fincher), and Best Motion Picture (Drama).

A deserving Natalie Portman picked up the Best Actress (Drama) gong for her performance in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, while Annette Benning took the corresponding comedy award for The Kids Are Alright. The King’s Speech‘s Colin Firth and Barney’s Vision‘s Paul Giamatti picked up the Best Actor awards, with Christian Bale and Melissa Leo both winning Best Supporting for their roles in The Fighter.
