2009 Movie Awards

I’m not gonna lie: there’s not just a whole lot that made me excited to be a fan of cinema in 2009.  In a couple of days I will release my top-10 of the year list and talk about this a little bit more, but since it didn’t particularly excite me to make that list, I thought I’d mix it up a little and make some of my own special awards.  This is what I came up with; hope you enjoy.

You still need to go see "The Young Victoria." Great costumes, setting and wonderful soundtrack. Loved the story too.
