Chicago's film critics have followed their fellow American experts and voted "The Social Network" the best film of 2010. David Fincher's movie, about the invention of Facebook.com, has already garnered favor from critics' groups in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Indiana, and Houston, Texas. The movie also landed six Golden Globe nominations when the contenders were announced earlier this month.
And the accolades continued when the winners were read out at the Chicago Film Critics Association's awards earlier this week - Fincher's acclaimed film was voted Best Picture yet again. Colin Firth, another big winner on the critics circuit, won the Best Actor trophy in Chicago for "The King's Speech", while fellow favorite Natalie Portman was voted Best Actress for thriller "Black Swan".
The Fighter won Christian Bale a Best Supporting Actor prize and Hailee Steinfeld went home with the Best Supporting Actress honor for "True Grit".
