“The Social Network” Takes Top Honors at NYFCC

Well, I think that nearly marks a clean sweep for “The Social Network.” It takes the Best Picture and Best Director awards. “The Kids Are All Right” actually had the biggest day at this particular junction though, gaining much needed traction for the rest of the season. I think this is the first time a film has, in fact, beaten out “Social” in a straight-up Best Screenplay fight. Kind of an overrated film, in my opinion. Funny and interesting at times, but it has the least amount of satisfying closure that I’ve seen in a film all year.

Colin Firth picks up another win, perhaps once again solidifying himself in the Best Actor race lead. Also, Melissa Leo wins yet another Supporting Actress honor. I think that she may have just become the frontrunner for the Oscar.
