'Black Swan' leads nominations for Gold Derby Film Awards
"Black Swan" has soared off with the most nominations (12) for the Gold Derby Film Awards, which are decided by The Envelope's forum posters. "The Social Network" and "Inception" are tied for second place with 10 each. Oscar front-runner "The King's Speech" earned six bids. Winners will be announced Feb. 19. You can cast your vote here after registering in our forums, which you'll find on the link.
The awards were launched in 2002 by our posters, who chose "Chicago" as best picture but veered from Oscar preferences in the races for best director (picking Peter Jackson for "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" over Roman Polanski for "The Pianist"), lead actress (Julianne Moore for "Far From Heaven" instead of Nicole Kidman in "The Hours") and supporting actress (Meryl Streep in "Adaptation" instead of Catherine Zeta-Jones in "Chicago"). In 2004, voters opted for "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" as best picture over Oscar choice "Million Dollar Baby," and in 2008 they preferred "Wall-E" to "Slumdog Millionaire."
