The Social Network Wins Big at The National Board of Review Awards

The Social Network is cleaning up in the early awards season. The film just won Best Film, Best Director for David Fincher, Best Screenplay for Aaron Sorkin and Best Actor for Jesse Eisenberg at The National Board of Review of Motion Pictures.

That said, despite sweeping most of the major categories, indieWIRE‘s Anne Thompson cautions against reading too much into the results as a predictor of Oscar gold.

The NBR is not always a forecaster of things to come, but rather a bellwether of where the momentum is at this moment in time. It also tends to be a bit New York-centric, and always does well by Sony Pictures Classics, which is releasing Mike Leigh’s Another Year and foreign winner Of Gods and Men.

Thompson has the rest of the winners at indieWire.
