The Social Network is on a roll, not only did they win big at the Golden Globe awards but they took home four trophies at the Critics Choice Awards. Here is the official word from VH1 along with the winner list:

"The Social Network" was named the year's Best Picture and David Fincher won Best Director honors for the film. Other big winners of the night included Colin Firth, who took Best Actor for his role in "The King's Speech" and Natalie Portman, who won Best Actress for her role in "Black Swan." Also honored were Christian Bale with the Best Supporting Actor award and Melissa Leo for Best Supporting Actress both for their work in "The Fighter."
