The National Society of Film Critics Tabs Social Network Best Picture

The Road to the Oscars went through Manhattan over the weekend. New York-based National Society of Film Critics chose The Social Network, the movie that chronicles the genesis of Facebook, as best picture.  

The assembled 61 critics from across the country met at Sardi’s Restaurant for their 45th annual meeting.

The group “liked” The Social Network enough to give best actor honors to Jesse Eisenberg (above). He played the emotionless Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. The motion picture was also handed directing (David Fincher) and screenplay (Aaron Sorkin) accolades.

Italian actress Giovanna Mezzogiorno won as best actress for her role as Mussolini’s secret lover in the little known (at least in the U.S.) Vincere.

Named as supporting actor, Geoffrey Rush was honored for his turn as a speech therapist in The King’s Speech, while Olivia Williams was victorious as supporting actress for The Ghost Writer.  

True Grit was named best cinematography.
