“The Social Network” Updated Awards Tally

You know, it’s true that “The Social Network” is my favorite movie of this year and many others. It’s probably in my Top 5 films of the last 20 years. However, that’s not why I am posting this. People really need to understand the precedent that is being set here. Never in the history of film has a movie been so unanimously praised as this one.

Every year there is a critical darling. Last year, at this point last year, “The Hurt Locker” has won 12 Best Picture awards, as has “Slumdog Millionaire.” “No Country for Old Men” was the only one that came close with 20 wins. “The Social Network” has 25 Best Picture wins under its belt. Not to mention, it is also the first film in nearly 15 years to win the “Big Four,” meaning the NYFCC, LAFCA, NBR and NSFC (L.A. Confidential was the last film to do that, and before that, Schindler’s List).

This has been a bigger critical coronation than ever there was one, and it’s really something to admire and remember.

Here’s the full list of main awards that it has won:

    I still don’t get it 🙂 But yes, it most likely will win Best Picture and Director, but I think it is Colin Firth’s year.
