Hello all! This year was a bit lacking in film in my opinion, so here’s my best picks in the categories that follow.

We start this year with the ackonwledgment that it was slow and that it didn’t really do much for a film lover like me. Admittedly, I had high expectations for this year’s supposed blockbusters, but my fear came to life: not many films impressed me like 2010’s films did. But I digress. There were some films this year that did spark my interest. So without further adieu, here is my awards list:
