BFCA crix are fans of ‘Social Network’

Firth, Portman take best actor, actress

“The Social Network” continued its winning streak with reviewers at Friday’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood. The question remains whether Oscar voters will also fall in line for the Facebook pic, since Academy voters have increasingly departed from other groups in the past few years.

“The Social Network” also drew wins for Aaron Sorkin in the adapted screenplay category and director David Fincher.

Colin Firth won lead actor for his role as King George VI in “The King’s Speech,” while Natalie Portman took lead actress for her turn as a psychologically unbalanced ballerina in “Black Swan.”

“The Fighter” took the supporting categories — Melissa Leo for actress, Christian Bale for actor — and also won for acting ensemble. In the original screenplay category, David Seidler’s script for “The King’s Speech” was the winner.

It was a tough night for “True Grit” as it lost for picture, lead actor (Jeff Bridges), director and original screenplay (Joel and Ethan Coen) and supporting actress (Hailee Steinfeld). The 14-year-old thesp did win for young actor/actress.
