Thompson on Hollywood
It's no surprise that David Fincher won best director for The Social Network. Fincher says that when producer Scott Rudin first called he was confused--because he usually is known for "pitch black stories about misanthropes.. or serial killers."

Fincher is the frontrunner for best director at the Oscars.

The Fox party is cheering for best TV comedy series Glee, big winner tonight. Ryan Murphy accepts.

    And The Social Network is different...how?

    Ugh, I thought The Social Network was severely overrated and got most of it's attention due to the subject matter rather than the movie as a whole. I'm a big David Fincher fan and he's never let me down. Good movie but it didn't make my Top Ten. I thought Howl was by far the best movie of the year with it's combination of animation, acting, and cinematography.
