The Broadcast Film Critics Association Fetes 'Black Swan' With A Record Twelve Nominations

Here's why awards prognostication is total crapshoot. This past weekend, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Online and the Boston Society Of Film Critics all collectively creamed over David Fincher's "The Social Network" and of course, pundits used that as evidence that the film is going all the way at Oscar time. Well, until this morning, that is, when the The Broadcast Film Critics Association bestowed a record-breaking twelve nominations on the ballet world psycho-sexual thriller "Black Swan."

Here's why awards prognostication is total crapshoot. This past weekend, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Online and the Boston Society Of Film Critics all collectively creamed over David Fincher's "The Social Network" and of course, pundits used that as evidence that the film is going all the way at Oscar time. Well, until this morning, that is, when the The Broadcast Film Critics Association bestowed a record-breaking twelve nominations on the ballet world psycho-sexual thriller "Black Swan."

The film will be up for awards in pretty much every major category including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Makeup, Best Sound and Best Score. But lest Team "The Social Network" begin to worry, that film walked away with nine nods, but still trails behind "True Grit" and "The King's Speech" (11 noms each) and "Inception" (10 noms).

The winners will be announced at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards ceremony on Friday, January 14, 2011 at 9:00 PM Eastern. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump. [IndieWire]
