Critics go Networking
Big honors for Facebook movie
Falling in step with practically every other critics' group thus far, the Florida Film Critics Circle, which is comprised of 19 film journalists from around the state (including The Miami Herald's Rene Rodriguez and Connie Ogle), bestowed its biggest honors on the juggernaut The Social Network, which nabbed Best Picture, Best Director (with David Fincher beating out Dar- ren Aronofsky by one vote) and Best Adapted Screenplay for Aaron Sorkin. Colin Firth was named Best Actor for The King's Speech (opening Dec. 25), while Natalie Portman won Best Actress for Black Swan.
The Fighter's Christian Bale and Melissa Leo snagged the Best Supporting Actor/Actress trophies. Christopher Nolan's Incep- tion won four awards (more than any other film), earning Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects and Best Cinematography. The Italian melodrama I Am Love, starring Tilda Swinton, was named Best Foreign Language Film. Toy Story 3 got Best Animated Feature, while The Tillman Story was named Best Documentary. Winter's Bone's Jennifer Law- rence earned this year's Break- out Award. Matthew Curtis, programming director of Orlando's Florida Film Festival, which is in its 19th year, earned the Golden Orange award for his contributions to film culture in Florida.
