PopEater's 'Nominate Justin Timberlake for an Oscar' Campaign
By PopEater Staff Posted Sep 23rd 2010 03:00PM
Critics are raving about David Fincher's 'The Social Network.' Word on the street is that the combination of Fincher's stellar direction, Aaron Sorkin's powerhouse script and epic performances by Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and, most importantly, Justin Timberlake make it a lock for a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards. No, that wasn't a typo. This is the performance of Timberlake's brief career as an actor, and it couldn't have come with a more game-changing movie.
As Napster co-founder Sean Parker, Timberlake is Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg's puppeteer and mentor. JT steps up his game in 'Network,' injecting a cool and sinister confidence into his portrayal of Parker. And as longtime fans of the singer-songwriter-producer, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to help turn JT into an even bigger superstar. We simply couldn't. We knew he had the pop music chops, but before 'Network,' he'd never really been able to translate his charisma into cinematic gold. Now, Timberlake is primed for major Hollywood stardom, and with that in mind, we officially launch our very own Facebook campaign to nominate Justin Timberlake for an Oscar this year. But we need a little help reminding the Academy that JT is the hidden gem in the best movie of the year. Join our group now and spread the word. Let's make it happen!
