David Fincher’s The Social Network received eight nomination from the Chicago Film Critics Association, including nods for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Jesse Eisenberg), Best Supporting Actor (Andrew Garfield), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Aaron Sorkin). Fincher’s film continues to lead the award season but what’s different here is that Chicago is the first to award the Coen brothers’ True Grit some major nominations, with six in total.
