David Fincher's "The Social Network dominated the The Boston Society of Film Critics' annual awards today, taking honors for best picture, director, screenplay (Aaron Sorkin), actor (Jesse Eisenberg) and "use of music in a film" (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross). Other major winners included "Black Swan"'s Natalie Portman for best actress, "The Fighter"'s Christian Bale for best supporting actor and, most surprisingly, "Conviction"'s Juliette Lewis for best supporting actress.
