Could Justin Timberlake go from Disney star to teen pop star to Grammy and Emmy award winner and finally Oscar winner? Well, I don’t see why it’s not possible. He’s already done all of the above except won an Oscar and now, with the release of his first awards bait film, The Social Network, this October he may get some consideration. However, he could get overshadowed by his costars, Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield (just announced as the new Spiderman), though in the movie about the founding of Facebook. Directed by Oscar nominee David Fincher, The Social Network looks at the origins of the social networking site and how a young college student (Eisenberg) became a billionaire in just 5 years and the personal and legal complications that followed. Looking at the trailer, Columbia pictures could very well have an awards contender on their hands. And how awesome would JT be at the Oscars? For more on the film, click here.
