The Oscars and Golden Globes are the big awards, but there are many other awarding bodies that can give good indication as to who is going to win big early next year. Critics choice awards are one such awards.

Over the weekend the New York Film Critics Online, L.A. Film Critics and Boston Film Critics announced their picks and the David Fincher movie The Social Network has done very well in all three. This is very good indication that The Social Network will definitely be one of the favourites to take home many gold statues next year. Here are the list of winners:
