To check announcement at official site go here. The Social Network is the film that collected more awards this year and becomes “more” an Oscar contender (of course we already had it in our list) and perhaps opens opportunities for Eisenberg to grab a nod; maybe what calls my attention from the first critics’ awards is the original screenplay award going to Buried.
