Oscar 2010: Social Network Sweeps Major Critics Groups

Can any movie other than The Social Network pick up a critics’ prize this year? After winning Best Picture honors from the National Board of Review and the Washington, D.C. Film Critics Association, David Fincher’s film has added three more awards to its arsenal with today’s announcements from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the Boston Society of Film Critics, and the New York Film Critics Online.

Aaron Sorkin also swept the three prizes for his screenplay, as did Toy Story 3 for Best Animated Film. Black Swan‘s Natalie Portman won two Best Actress awards, while three different actors—The King’s Speech‘s Colin Firth, 127 Hours‘ James Franco, and The Social Network‘s Jesse Eisenberg—each picked up a Best Actor prize. Check out all the winners after the jump.
