‘Social Network’ Awarded by National Film Critics and Women Film Journalists

Over the last few days The Social Network has racked up a few more awards, this time taking home the top prize from both the National Society of Film Critics (NSFC) and the Alliance of Women Film Journalists (AWFJ).

Network virtually swept the NSFC awards winning best picture, director (David Fincher), actor (Jesse Eisenberg) and screenplay (Aaron Sorkin). It also won picture, director and screenplay from the AWFJ where it also won best score (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross), but Colin Firth won the actor award for his performance in The King’s Speech.

So, The Social Network continues its run, but this weekend is where it will face its first big tests at the Broadcast Film Critics Awards on Friday, January 14 and the Golden Globes on Sunday, January 16. Neither award show will serve to be the end all, be all, but if Social Network wins with those two I really don’t see how anything can spot it, bar a major surprise. Nine days later the Oscar nominations will be announced on the 25th and then should Network win for Best Ensemble at the Screen Actors Guild Awards five days later you can pretty much wrap it up and seal it with a bow.
