The Social Network Wins Best Picture at Critics Choice Awards

The Critics’ Choice Awards were last night, and, obviously, The Social Network took home the bulk of the top prizes, winning Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Score. But Inception took the lead, with six awards, though most were for technical achievements. A visibly pregnant Natalie Portman won Best Actress for Black Swan, and Colin Firth won Best Actor for The King’s Speech. In her acceptance speech, Portman told director Darren Aronofsky, “You made me skinny and you’re indirectly responsible for making me fat because you introduced me to my love,” she said, referring to her fiancé and the film’s choreographer, Benjamin Millepied, a story she has been using a lot lately.
