Seems that critics across the ocean also like The Social Network which makes me think that film could make it to the BAFTA’s; but their choice for actress is the best that have seen in all awards up-to-date. As you can notice, decided to include some audience award winners to reaffirm my impression that The Tourist will appeal more to non-American audiences.
