'Social Network' actors prep for awards season

January 6, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
The stars of "The Social Network" are celebrating the next chapter in the life of the movie Thursday night. The film and its stars have been getting one honor after another from major groups. Experts predict several Oscar nominations are still on the way.

"The Social Network" is about to become more social. The critically acclaimed drama about the beginning of Facebook becomes available Tuesday on DVD and Blu-ray.

With awards season in full gear, being a part of this movie has been one great ride.

"I think the biggest star of the movie was collaboration. I think it was honestly a triumph of teamwork," said screenwriter Aaron Sorkin.

"I'm very, very proud to be a part of the film. You know, that's first and foremost. And the actual process of making the movie was enough. You know what I mean? If no one had ever seen it, ever, it would have been enough to have gone through that creative experience," said actor Andrew Garfield.

"I'm sure this DVD is coming out on January 11th totally on accident. Not during awards season at all," said actress Brenda Song.

Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, is not on Facebook. But he is on stardom's map.

"I got to play such an amazing character and if that means, you know, some people, you know, take a picture of me on the subway, which happens where I live, you know, it's occasionally uncomfortable, that's kind of one of the strange byproducts of being in something like this," said Eisenberg.

"The Social Network" has changed the lives of the stars who are a part of it.

"The Social Network" hits stores on Tuesday.
