2010 Satellite Award Winners

Best Picture (Drama) The Social Network
Best Picture (Comedy) Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Best Picture (Foreign) The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Best Picture (Animated) Toy Story 3
Best Picture (Documentary) Restrepo
Best Director David Fincher, The Social Network
Best Screenplay (Original) The King's Speech
Best Screenplay (Adapted) The Social Network
Nothing surprising here aside from the win for Scott Pilgrim, which is pretty impressive. Not too many critics bodies give out separate screenplay awards, so I guess we can count this as an indicator that The King's Speech is a front-runner for original screenplay.

Best Actress (Drama) Noomi Rapace, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Best Actress (Comedy) Anne Hathaway, Love and Other Drugs
Best Actor (Drama) Colin Firth, The King's Speech
Best Actor (Comedy) Michael Cera, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Best Supporting Actor Christian Bale, The Fighter
Best Supporting Actress Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom

Not crazy about the Noomi Rapace win, and I'd really like this performance to vanish from awards season. Anne Hathaway is an acceptable choice though, as is Cera, who actually managed to be slightly different than his usual nerd schtick in Scott Pilgrim. Glad to see Weaver and Bale (more on The Fighter later today) pick up more awards. Bale already has his fair share of critics prizes, but for Weaver, every award counts, especially after being snubbed by the Screen Actors Guild.

Best Score Hans Zimmer, Inception
Best Song Dianne Warren and Cher "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me", Burlesque
Best Sound Mixing and Editing Unstoppable
Best Cinematography Wally Pfister, Inception
Best Visual Effects Alice in Wonderland
Best Film Editing Robert Frazen, Please Give
Best Production Design Guy Dyas, Inception
Best Costume Design Colleen Atwood, Alice in Wonderland
Best Cinematography Wally Pfister, Inception
As random as it is, I really love that Please Give picked up an award for its editing. Though it make lack the story-telling scope of more obvious choices like Inception or The Social Network, it was a surprisingly well-paced, well-paced film that never lagged. On the opposite end of the spectrum, what on earth were people smoking to think that Alice in Wonderland deserved to win over something like Inception.
