The Boston Society of Film Critics got their votes out Sunday ahead of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, which arguably has more impact within an industry town. But fact is, The Social Network is emerging as a consensus choice among early critics groups, and dominated Boston with five wins including picture, director David Fincher, star Jesse Eisenberg, writer Aaron Sorkin and music (full list of winners below). LAFCA also announces its winners Sunday: stay tuned for updates. Black Swan had a good weekend as it broadened at the box office and landed best actress from Boston for Natalie Portman.
