HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — In the end, the “Black Swan” had her feathers ruffled. Badly. While the talked-about movie came into the 16th annual Critic’s Choice Awards with a record 12 nonimations, the film only walked away with one win, that for best actress Natalie Portman.

“Inception” came out the big winner with six awards in mostly technical categories. The “Social Network” took four awards, including Best Picture and “The Fighter” won three honors.

“The King’s Speech” won two awards, including a Best Actor nod for star Colin Firth.

The 10 films nominated by the Broadcast Film Critics Association for best picture were “The Black Swan,” “127 Hours,” “The Fighter,” “Inception,” “The King’s Speech,” “The Social Network,” “The Town,” “Toy Story 3,” “True Grit” and “Winter’s Bone.”

During the ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium, actor Matt Damon received the Joel Siegel Award, honoring his film career and philanthropic efforts. The award was presented by Emily Blunt — who appears with Damon in the upcoming film “The Adjustment Bureau” — and Damon’s comedic nemesis, Jimmy Kimmel.

“Matt personifies the values celebrated by the Joel Siegel Award,” BFCA President Joey Berlin said prior to the awards ceremony. “Among his many charitable endeavors, Matt’s work as co-founder of Water.org has inspired us to honor him. The profound mission of Water.org is to help bring a day when everyone on the planet can take a safe drink of water.”

Damon has won two Critics’ Choice Awards for “Good Will Hunting” and earned five more nominations, most recently for last year’s “Invictus.”

Also honored during the ceremony was director Quentin Tarantino, who received the inaugural Critics’ Choice Music+Film Award. His award was presented actor Tim Roth, who appeared in Tarantino’s film “Reservoir Dogs.”

The ceremony was broadcast on VH1.

Other presenters included Hank Azaria, Jesse Eisenberg, Jon Hamm, Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Moore, Sarah Silverman, Kevin Spacey, Emma Stone and Sofia Vergara.
