The National Board of Review has awarded David Fincher's The Social Network with Best Film of the Year, Fincher got Best Director, Jesse Eisenberg took home Best Actor and Aaron Sorkin won for Best Screenplay. I can't really argue... I loved The Social Network, and any awards that it wins are well deserved.
The National Board of Review is a non-profit group made up of 110 "film enthusiasts, academics, professionals, and students" and today they sent out its list of award winners for film achievement in 2010.
The only award I don't really agree with is the Best Actress award, it should have gone to Natalie Portman for Black Swan. Check out the list of winners below and tell us what you think!
