The Social Network, David Fincher’s film about the founders of Facebook, clinched yet another critics group award by being judged best film by the National Society of Critics on 8 January.
The film scooped three other awards on the night– best director (Fincher), best actor (Jesse Eisenberg) and best screenplay (Aaron Sorkin).
Best actress was Giovanna Mezzogiorno in the Italian film Vincere, in which Mezzogiorno plays Mussolini’s mistress.
The two supporting actor awards were won by Geoffrey Rush for The King’s Speech and Olivia Williams for The Ghost Writer.
Best cinematography went to Roger Deakins for his work on True Grit, while Carlos (directed by Olivier Assayas) won best foreign-language film.
The non-fiction film award was given to Charles Ferguson’s Inside Job, which examines the financial crisis of 2008.
Olivier Assayas’ Carlos, a portrait of terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, was named best foreign-language film. (Source: Hollywood Reporter)
