Nomination Reaction: Michael DeLuca

Producer, Best Picture - 'The Social Network'

Michael De Luca, one of the producers of “The Social Network,” said he got up early to watch the nominations, tiptoed past his sleeping 3-year-old son’s bedroom and was celebrating with his daughter.

“I told her that daddy was in a movie that a lot of people liked so we’re getting a lot of phone calls right now. … The story dealt with basic human needs of acceptance and friendship and longing for relationships, whether you’re Copernicus or Galileo or Mark Zuckeberg, Aaron (Sorkin) did a great job of showing what you’re losing when you win.”
