Catching Up on Some Critics Awards

View Updated Precursor Chart

The Social Network continues to sweep critics awards, but several have ventured outside of the box and supported films like Christopher Nolan’s Inception. However, overall we obviously have one critical darling this year with David Fincher’s film taking the prize from the minor and major critics groups alike.
