The Social Network wins best film per OFCS
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
Did anyone not love this movie (except maybe Mark Zuckerberg)...?
In a shocking turn of events The Online Film Critics Society has selected The Social Network as their 2010 Film of the Year. The OFCS joins the National Board of Review, Los Angeles Film Critics, Boston Film Critics, and New York Film Critics Online in choosing David Fincher's celebrated tale of the Facebook founders over all other releases of the last 12 months. Not to be outdone, left behind, or thinking independently, the Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas and Houston Film Critics Societies, the San Francisco Film Critics Circle, the Indiana Film Journalists Awards and the African-American Film Critics Association chose it as Best Picture as well.
The film also won the Online Film Critics Society awards for Best Director (David Fincher) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin). Fincher and Sorkin were recognized by several of the film societies listed above, and Jesse Eisenberg has received several nods as Best Actor.
While the independent film societies are not always accurate predictors of Oscar success, who would have predicted a sweep of this magnitude across the critical boards? The few critics' groups that did not choose it as the Best Picture of 2010 included the Phoenix Film Critics Society, who chose The King's Speech, the Austin Film Critics who chose The Black Swan; and the Utah Film Critics Association who decided it was a tie between 127 Hours and... The Social Network.
