Is it surprising a movie set mostly at Harvard University dominated the 2010 Boston Society of Film Critic’s year end awards?  Probably not considering the David Fincher drama may dominate today’s critic’s groups run down.  “Network” won picture, director (Fincher), actor (Jesse Eisenberg), screenplay (Aaron Sorkin) and a special award for music.  Natalie Portman won best actress for “Black Swan” while Christian Bale won best supporting actor for “The Fighter” and the org made a statement by giving Juliette Lewis best supporting actress for “Conviction.”
