2010 Jyerating Film Award Nominations

I’ve been agonizing over these nominations for a while now, but I’m finally done putting them together. Obviously there are still films from 2010 that I want to see, but I’m going ahead with the awards anyway.

You’ll notice some differences between my awards and that of the Academy’s… that’s because these are my awards and I have no problem doing with them what I will. I hope you’ll enjoy some of the changes.

  1. You didn’t like Alice in Wonderland either? I have always felt like the only person! Probably cause Fiona adores it. Why didn’t you like it?

      You’re certainly not alone. It’s got no depth. The Disney version didn’t have depth either but it managed to make itself entertaining enough with it’s great characters.
      Also this film gives itself over to a horrid action climax that is totally cliché and uninteresting. And do I even HAVE to mention Johnny Depp doing that hip-hop dance at the end? Haha

      • I must have fell asleep by the end cause I missed the dance. Yea for me it felt like it was trying to be epic and different just for the sake of it, not to actually make the story any better.
