BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AFP)--"The Social Network" won the best picture award at the Golden Globes on Sunday, in a good night for the Facebook movie at the Hollywood awards show.

The film, about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, won in four of the six categories for which it was nominated, including best director for David Fincher.

The blockbuster movie had already picked up best screenplay and best score prizes at the Globes, traditionally seen as a pointer to success at the more prestigious Oscars show next month.
