“Social Network,” “Inception” lead D.C. Crix nominations

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: HollywoodNews.com’s Awards Season Roundup collects insights from around the Internet on films that are running in the Oscar race.

The Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association announced its nominees today, and they focused on five or six frontrunners such as “The Social Network” and “Inception.” Winners will be announced on Monday.

On the other side of the pond, Roman Polanski’s “The Ghost Writer” won the best film prize at the European Film Awards. It was one of six wins, including best director and best actor for Ewan McGreogor. Will this lead to Oscar heat?

The L.A. Times wonders if “127 Hours” is doing well enough at the box office.

The guys behind the “Catfish” documentary are being sued for using music samples in what the lawsuit says is NOT a documentary.

HitFix says “The King’s Speech” remains the odds-on favorite to win Best Picture.

And finally, one columnist asks, wisely, if there’s a double standard that exists where “Blue Valentine” gets an NC-17 for a particular sex act but “Black Swan” gets a pass?
