I always knew The Social Network would be the critical favorite this year, but I never expected it to completely sweep the first two weeks of critics prizes. Then The King’s Speech fought back, dominating today’s Golden Globe nominations. So I’m not quite ready yet to swap my No. 1 and No. 2 Best Picture contenders. But the week’s events have shifted things in several categories. Here’s how I see the race today.
