And the winner for best losing reaction goes to … David Fincher.

Upon hearing that Aaron Sorkin won Best Screenplay for a Motion Picture at the 2021 Golden Globes for “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” Fincher gave a cheers to Sorkin and then downed a shot of alcohol to mourn his late father Jack Fincher’s loss for “Mank.”

He rounded out his reaction by giving a round of applause to Sorkin.

Jack wrote the screenplay for “Mank” prior to his death in 2003, but David — who directed the film — didn’t officially announce its adaptation until July 2019.

Fincher’s films include “Fight Club,” “Seven,” “The Social Network” and “Gone Girl.”
