The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) has released their 36th annual list of top films of the year, and the internet goes silver screen semi-biopic The Social Network takes top honors. David Fincher, the film's director, gets a nod (in a tie win with Olivier Assayas for his film Carlos) for Best Director, while its scribe, Aaron Sorkin, picks up a win for Best Screenplay.

So is it going to be a Social Network-heavy awards season in early 2011? Could be. "Along with the New York Film Critics Circle," explains the AP via the HuffPo, "the Los Angeles reviewers' awards are among the key critical picks that help single out potential favorites on the buildup to the Feb. 27 Academy Awards."

The LAFCA will honor their winners on January 15th in a ceremony here in L.A.
