Hang In There Eisengberg

Even though I adored Colin Firth's performance in The King's Speech, I found myself rooting for Jesse Eisenberg during The Golden Globes last night. The success of The Social Network, which won Best Picture, was so utterly dependent on Eisenberg's portrayal of Zuckerberg that I felt he should have won Best Actor. Plus, Eisenberg always comes off as completely awkward and self-conscious, which may or may not be contrived (he's basically the male version of Kristen Stewart), so it would have been fun to watch him deliver a stilted speech.  Oh well, there's still the Oscars.  

Speaking of awkward, check out this interview in which the entertainment reporter thinks that Eisenberg is "doing Zuckerberg" when he's actually just being himself.  Forward to the fourth minute of the interview. So painful.
