David Fincher's Facebook drama The Social Network topped another film critics' awards list today: the Southeastern Film Critics Association chose it as the Best Film of 2010. Additionally, The Social Network was cited in the Best Director, Best Ensemble, and Best Adapted Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin) categories. [List of Southeastern Film Critics winners.]

The Southeastern critics' Best Actor was The King's Speech's Colin Firth, who also was named the winner at the New York Film Critics Circle awards just a little while ago. In addition, The King's Speech was singled out for David Seidler's original screenplay, while Geoffrey Rush, as the king's speech therapist, was the Best Supporting Actor.

Natalie Portman was the Best Actress for her performance as a distraught ballerina in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. Hailee Steinfeld, for her part, was chosen as the Best Supporting Actress for Joel and Ethan Coen's True Grit.

Bong Joon-ho's Mother was the Best Foreign Language Film, Lee Unkrich's Toy Story 3 the expected Best Animated Feature, and Charles Ferguson's Inside Job the Best Documentary. Debra Granik's Winter's Bone, which is set in the Ozark Mountains, was given the “Spirit of the South” award.
