The Social Network is a Big Hit!

Everyone's status updates on Facebook over the weekend seemed to be about how amazing of a movie The Social Network was, which is why it took the number one spot at the box office.

Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield have a lot of celebrating to do after The Social Network debuted at #1 making $23 million in its opening weekend.

That's not the only reason the boys should be celebrating. This movie is getting a lot of Oscar buzz. Yup, the oldies over at the Academy are even digging the film about friendship and betrayal.

Justin Timberlake has made one heck of a transition from music to acting. Just last week, he said that he won't be heading to the studio anytime soon. JT has found his calling in acting. How many talents can one person have?

Below is the top 10 grossing movies this weekend:

1- The Social Network--$23 million
2- Legend of The Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole--$10.8 million
