‘The Social Network’ Wins Chicago, St. Louis, Florida, and Houston Critics Awards

Based on the scores on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic, The Social Network is not every critics favorite movie of the year. However, films that were equally lauded like Toy Story 3, Exit Through the Gift Shop, and Carlos seem to be relegated to their own specific categories while the Facebook movie sweeps the competition. Four other prominent critics groups have announced their annual list of winners and guess who came out on top?
