London Film Critics name ‘Social Network’ film of the year

HollywoodNews.com: “The Social Network” dominated the London Film Critics Circle Awards tonight, taking home the top prizes of Film and Director of the Year.

The so-called “Facebook movie” was also honored with Screenwriter of the Year for scribe Aaron Sorkin and British Actor in a Supporting Role for Andrew Garfield, who was also nominated in the British Actor category for Never Let Me Go.

The King’s Speech, which is currently viewed as the frontrunner in the Oscars race, finished second with three overall wins: British Actor of the Year for Tom Hooper, Best Actor for Colin Firth, and The Attenborough Award for British Film of the Year.

Other winners of the night included Annette Bening (The Kids Are All Right) for Best Actress, beating out frontrunner Natalie Portman for her turn as a tortured ballerina in Black Swan, Leslie Manville (Another Year) for British Actress of the Year, Christian Bale (The Fighter) for British Actor of the Year and Olivia Williams (The Ghost Writer) for British Actress in a Supporting Role.

Keeping with the Brit flare, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards will take place Sunday. BBC is broadcasting the event at 8 p.m. EST.
