Aaron Sorkin 2011 Oscars

Aaron Sorkin won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for his script, The Social Network, at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. The script was about the Facebook website and its founder Mark Zuckerberg. It was based on the novel, The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, by Ben Mezrich.

Aaron Sorkin carefully thanked those who helped him during his acceptance speech, including director David Fincher. Sorkin said, "I wrote this movie, but David Fincher made this movie and he did it with an ungodly artfulness. Someone this talented has no business being the nicest guy in the world, but he is and he made the movie of any screenwriter's dream."
