It's safe to say the Social Network has friends in very high places.

Following a string of Best Picture noms leading into awards season, the Facebook flick was named Best Picture by the National Society of Film Critics Saturday at the organization's annual meeting in New York City.

But that wasn't the only award bestowed on the Social Network… 

The film's director, David Fincher, took home the critics' Best Director nod, Jesse Eisenberg scored Best Actor and Aaron Sorkin took home Best Screenplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter

In addition to the Social Network's bevy of awards from the film critics group, Giovanna Mezzogiorno was selected as Best Actress for her performance in the Italian film Vincere, and Geoffrey Rush and Olivia Williams were dubbed Best Supporting Actor and Actress, respectively for their performances in The King's Speech and The Ghost Writer.
