Everyone's favorite award show is fast approaching (and, no, I don't mean the Oscars). Here's a look at the top of my just-submitted ballot:

Best Picture of the Year:
1. Two Lovers
2. Antichrist
3. A Single Man
4. (500) Days of Summer
5. Up in the Air

Man this was a weak year.

I'm hoping that's a typo, and you meant to say "A Serious Man" ;-)

I kid, you're obviously entitled to your opinion, but man, did I dislike "A Single Man." Tom Ford can employ all the Film 101 techniques he wants, the film still comes off as (at times embarrassingly) shallow to me.

See, I didn't see A Serious Man.

I don't totally disagree w/ you on A Single Man. but I thought it was interesting and didn't conform to what I thought it'd be.

It was probably the worst edited film I saw all year.

Which just goes to show you how weak 2009 was, IMO
