New York Film Critics Circle Awards

After the Los Angeles Film Critics Association awarded David Fincher's "The Social Network" Best Picture yesterday, we now have the New York Film Critics Circle following suit by giving "The Social Network" the top prize.

Most notable behind this, though, was "The Kids Are All Right" which got three awards for Best Screenplay, Best Actress for Annette Bening and, the biggest shock of all, Mark Ruffalo for Best Supporting Actor. Nice to see considering the Critics' Choice Award nominations snubbed it earlier this afternoon.

Best Director went to David Fincher for "The Social Network."

Colin Firth in "The King's Speech" won for Best Actor while Melissa Leo in "The Fighter" won for Best Supporting Actress.

A huge surprise came in the category of Best Animated Film which went to "The Illusionist" over "Toy Story 3." Could this upset happen at the Oscars? Likely not, but it's good to see Sylvain Chomet's film getting recognition.

"Black Swan" won for Matthew Libatique's cinematography while "Carlos" won for Best Foreign Language Film.

Considering the New York Film Critics Circle awarded "The Hurt Locker" last year, I think for the Oscars everyone's eyes need to be set on "The Social Network" over the previously thought-to-be-frontrunner "The King's Speech."
