Nominees for the Online Film Critics Society 2010 Awards are an eclectic bunch. They range from the expected (The Social Network, Natalie Portman, James Franco, Christopher Nolan) to the unusual (Mother's Kim Hye-ja, screenwriters Michael Bacall and Edgar Wright for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Dogtooth up for Best Foreign Language Film, the documentary Catfish). [List of Online Film Critics Society nominations.]

Mostly, however, the Online Film Critics' list matches those of other awards-season groups. Except that Tom Hooper's acclaimed The King's Speech, the one movie that could beat The Social Network at the Oscars, failed to be shortlisted in the Best Film and Best Director categories. Screenwriter David Seidler, however, made the cut, and so did Best Actor Colin Firth and Best Supporting Actor Geoffrey Rush. (But not Helena Bonham Carter.)

Another curious omission was that of Blue Valentine's Michelle Williams, considering that her co-star, Ryan Gosling, found his way into the six (a tie, clearly) Best Actor nominees.

The Online Film Critics Society's award winners will be announced on January 3, 2011. The OFCS is online at www.ofcs.org.
