London: `Superman Returns` star Kevin Spacey will be cheering for David Fincher`s `The Social Network` at the Oscars because his former assistant is the film`s producer.

The Oscar winner`s producing partner Dana Brunetti went to the Academy Awards with Spacey a decade ago and next year he could well be up onstage collecting gold as his Facebook film is sure to be among the 10 Best Picture Oscar nominees and many critics have tipped it for victory, reports

"Ten years ago he went to the Academy Awards as my assistant and this year he might well be going as an Academy Awards-nominated producer," said Spacey.
