Phoenix Film Critics Don’t Vote ‘Social Network’

This week is typically one of the quietest in the Awards season with not many precursors and a few weeks until the guild awards begin. However, there are still a number of critics groups that have yet to announce their winners. While The Social Network has been an across-the-board winner with Critics groups, a few have broken from the pack to throw their support behind other films. The Phoenix Film Critics have announced their winners and for the most part their ballot looks pretty typical, except that The Social Network was nowhere to be found in the Director or Picture category. Instead the group went for The King’s Speech, which many still claim has a shot at winning Best Picture.
