'The King's Speech' rules London Critics Circle Award nominations

Kingsspeech33 It would seem no surprise, given patriotic loyalty and all, that the London Critics Circle prefers "The King's Speech" to "The Social Network." "King" reigns with the most award nominations, tied with "Another Year" (seven).

Curious inclusions: "Toy Story 3" for best picture; Andrew Garfield nominated twice ("Never Let Me Go," "The Social Network"). Curious exclusions: "The Fighter" and "Inception" were not nominated for best picture; Julianne Moore ("The Kids Are All Right") was snubbed for lead actress while costar Annette Bening got in.

Below, the full list. Trophies are set to be doled out Feb. 10.
