Sorry, Oprah, but the critics are NOT happy about this!
Yesterday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Board of Governors announced that they will honor Oprah Winfrey with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for "her extensive charitable, philanthropic, and educational efforts."
Here's what New York Film Critics Circle chair John Anderson had to say about it:

Wow! This is huge!
Both The New York Film Critics Circle AND The LA Film Critics Association have named The Social Network, directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin, as the best picture of the year!
New York's Chair Armond White says:
”This year's choices reflect the current critical mindset. It's proof that it's always a good year for movies.”
What an honor!
We will be absolutely SHOCKED if this movie doesn't win the Best Picture Academy Award!
Check out both New York's and Los Angeles' full list of accolades…AFTER THE JUMP!
