"Social Network," "Kids Are All Right" Lead New York Critics' Awards

The New York Film Critics' Circle, widely considered one of the leading organizations of film critics in the country, have announced their annual awards. David Fincher's "The Social Network" continued to dominate all critics' awards here with wins for best picture and best director.

The NYFCC did spread the love in best screenplay, giving the first major critics award to someone other than Aaron Sorkin: Lisa Cholodenko & Stuart Blumberg for "The Kids Are All Right." That film also nabbed awards for both best actress (Annette Bening) and best supporting actor (Mark Ruffalo), which is a nice boost for the film, which was shut out of the Critics Choice' best picture category earlier this morning.

Other major winners included Colin Firth and Melissa Leo for best actor and best supporting actress, "The Illusionist" for best animated feature, "Inside Job" for best documentary, and "Carlos" for best foreign language film.

Last year, "The Hurt Locker" topped NYFCC's awards, and went on to win Oscar's top prize as well. Check out indieWIRE's updated Oscar predictions here.

Full list of announced winners below. Check out a list of all the awards so far this year here, which makes clear "The Social Network"'s intense domination of most Oscar precursors thus far.
