The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards has traditionally been a good indicator of what films will take home Oscars at the end of February, and this year looks like it will be no different. The Social Network continued its awards season sweep, taking home Best Film, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Score, though The Fighter managed to steal some acting trophies—with Christian Bale and Melissa Leo winning the Supporting Actor trophies and whole cast taking Best Acting Ensemble.

Another long-deserving/rarely trophy-bound actor, Colin Firth, won Best Actor for The King’s Speech (which also took Best Original Screenplay), while Natalie Portman snagged Best Actress for Black Swan—at least one hot young star sneaks away with one of these things. Another young actress, Halle Steinfeld, won Best Young Actor/Actress, and could still serve as a challenge for Portman or Leo at the Oscars—depending which category the Academy puts her role in. Though The Social Network got top honors, Inception actually took home more trophies: Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound and Best Action Movie! Our favorite upset of the night had to be Easy A winning Best Comedy—we’re glad to see this movie get some love.
