As the year comes to a close and the award season sneaks up on us, everyone is faced with the decision to pick a side of their favorite flick. Believe me, I love the winter dramas and the award season as much as the next guy, but my mind does not choose the "Best Picture" and "Best Actor" categories. This is why I have come up for the idea for the first Annual Really Important Reviews Movie/TV Awards. Get ready to get your mind grapes BLOWN!!
The I-cannot-believe-this-is-a-show award:
Bottom feeder of television E! creator of televison gems like Keeping up with the Kardashians and the Girls Next Door brings you the true downfall of television, women competing for the perfect wedding and the plastic surgery of their dreams.
Nominees: Sarah Palin's Alaska and Dance Your Ass Off
The Best New Show award:
Winner: The Walking Dead
What makes this zombie show better then the hundreds that have been made for TV is that you can tell that it is written, directed and acted by zombie movie nerds like me who have waded through hours of zombie flicks and picked out the best parts of them and put them in this little perfect show.
Nominees: Modern Family, (I know this doesn't count, but it is awesome) reruns of Freaks and Geeks on IFC
Winner: Natalie Portman (Black Swan)
It is not usual for me to have an actress take me on such an emotional roller coaster as Natalie in this film. The first half of the movie I wanted to hug her and tell her everything would be okay and he needed to calm down, the second half of the film I really was terrified to my core of her and her crazy ass mind.
Nominees: Annette Benning (The Kids Are Alright), Michelle Williams (Blue valentine)
Winner: Colin Firth (The King's Speech)
In my time of film, i have seen many British films centered around the royal family. Never have I seen a portrayal of royalty that is so human and so shockingly relate able as Colin Firth's portrayal as King George VI
Nominees: James Franco (127 Hours), Robert Duvall (Get Low)
Best Supporting Actress
Winner: The girls in The Fighter
Not only am I going to hand it to the obvious Melissa Leo and Amy Adams for their astounding performances, but I also will be the first to acknowledge the great acting by the 8 drunk sisters in the movie.
Nominees: Helena Bonham Carter (The King's Speech), Mia Waisikowski (The Kids Are Alright)
