    Looks like The Odds’ winning streak is going to end.

    And why, exactly, would the “attacks on its [The Social Network’s] accuracy” somehow be worse than the ones leveled at A Beautiful Mind, The Hurt Locker and The Hurricane? Not only did two of those three films reach Oscar glory, but inaccuracies in biopics has been around since birth of “based on a true story.”
