1st Annual Chrisfilm Awards (2010)

In years past, to celebrate the Academy Awards, I would come up with my personal list of nominations and winners. A lot of my nominations would overlap, and some of my guilty pleasures would add a personal touch to it all. Unfortunately, with the Oscar nominations being the worst I have ever seen this year, I am making this list not to celebrate the Awards, but to give respect to films that aren’t blockbuster enough to earn a nomination. (A big, sarcastic thanks to the Academy for picking movies that get little recognition elsewhere.)

And so begins the 1st Annual Chrisfilm Awards.

    It looks like I have some films to watch. I was definitely disappointed with the best picture nominees this year. The Blind Side? Really?

    Good stuff. Thanks for the post.

    You missed a great True/False film festival this year. You REALLY HAVE to go next year. It is a great experience.

    • chrisfilm Says:

      Yeah, The Blind Side is ridiculous. I haven’t seen the movie, but I don’t think I need to.

      I remember you mentioning the True/False festival, but next year you’ll have to remind me as it gets close so I don’t forget. Is it in Columbia?

    • chrisfilm Says:

      Oh yeah, and stop wasting your time with 100 mile weeks and start a music blog already. I need to know what to look for. =)

  2. Cousin Cathy Says:

    Interesting choices and now I have some new choices for Netflix, thank you!

    Do you have a twitter account? Would love to follow you.

    Thanks again for the very interesting film reviews.

    • chrisfilm Says:

      Hey Cathy, thanks for looking! I don’t have a Twitter account, but maybe I should look into it. I’m always a step behind on those kind of things. =)
