  1. Hmm, some surprising choices for sure. Love the “Worst Picture of the Year” category, haha.

      I suppose the surprising choice was Nolan? Well like I said to Adam, it could easily have been Boyle also. But with Nolan putting together such a large impressive production in the way that he did, he’s certainly deserving.

      Or was there another category that surprised you? I’m keen to know.

      Oh and glad you enjoyed “Worst Picture”… the funny thing was that this year there were hardly any films I’d seen that could fit in that category! That’s a good thing, I suppose.
