Nomination Reaction: Scott Rudin

Producer - 'The Social Network'

Scott Rudin woke up to become a two-fisted nominee for best picture, with bids for “The Social Network” and “True Grit.”

He had no trouble tackling two very ambitious, very different projects.

“I loved the notion of using Mark Zuckerberg as a metaphor. I think the subject of the film is, ‘What is intimacy, what is loneliness, what is communication right now, what does it mean to be in a relationship with somebody,” he said.

As for “True Grit,” Rudin wasn’t intimidated by the idea of making a western. “It was a wonderful script, it’s a great story, it’s based on a great book. It didn’t feel like such a stretch to imagine.”

True to form, Rudin said he planned to celebrate his Oscar wealth “by going back to work.”
