LOS ANGELES — The Facebook drama "The Social Network" has been picked as the year's best picture by the influential Los Angeles Film Critics Association.
The group's best-actor prize Sunday went to Colin Firth for the British monarchy tale "The King's Speech," while Kim Hye-ja won best actress for the South Korean drama "Mother."
The runners-up were Edgar Ramirez for the terrorist epic "Carlos" and Jennifer Lawrence for the Ozarks crime drama "Winter's Bone."
Overseas crime dramas won the supporting honors: Jacki Weaver for Australia's "Animal Kingdom" and Niels Arestrup for France's "A Prophet."
The directing prize was shared by David Fincher for "Social Network" and Olivier Assayas for "Carlos," which also was the best-picture runner-up.
