CRITICS' CHOICE AWARDS: The Social Network cops Best Picture, among other top honours

BIG WIN: The cast and producers of The Social Network celebrate their Best Picture win at Friday evening's Critics' Choice Movie Awards in Los Angeles.

The Social Network continued its awards season dominance, picking up three top awards at last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The movie, widely touted as the finest film of 2010, picked up top honours as Best Picture, Best Director (David Fincher) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin). Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending epic Inception swept the technical categories, and was named Best Action Movie.

Acting frontrunners Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) and Natalie Portman (Black Swan) nabbed Best Actor and Actress respectively, as Melissa Leo (Best Supporting Actress) and Christian Bale (Best Supporting Actor) took home awards for The Fighter, which also copped Best Acting Ensemble. The Critics Choice Awards are presented annually by the Broadcast Film Critics’ Association.
