coming up: what to expect in january
2010 is coming, ladies and gents, and Journalistic Skepticism expects to start the year off with a bang. To give you a little preview and whet your appetites for some January goodness, here’s a little heads-up about what to expect in the upcoming month:
**Merylfest returns in full force with a trio of posts on her stellar year. So join Julia, Jane, and Mrs. Fox for some Streep goodness once awards season and “best of” madness dies down. Of course, mum’s the word on everything 2009 until after…
**The 2009 LCT Awards will commence when nominations are announced in January. The winners will be awarded soon thereafter, but watch for some announcements about the best of the year in entertainment, and in the meantime, check out some past winner galleries at the official Web site.
**And speaking of “best of,” the ongoing Decade Revisited of winners and nominees past will conclude next month, finishing off with the 2009 crop. Up next? 2003 gets a gander, and Jude Law, Diane Keaton, and the gang will have to defend their trophies. Also, look for the top films and top performances of the year lists to be unveiled post-awards frenzy.
**Along with the return to form, look for Best of the ’60s to return with a look at the musicals of the decade. So join heavyweights Julie Andrews and Rita Moreno for some ’60s song-singing amazingness.
**Among the columns returning with a vengeance, First Impressions will make a comeback, starting with a pair of sibling thespians, the Gyllenhaals, in their first roles.
**The Top 100 countdown continues, with January bringing us every closer to the elusive Top 25!
**And finally, once the decade that was officially comes to a close, it’s inevitable that Journalistic Skepticism’s official Best Movies of the Aughts list will take shape. Look for the countdown to begin come month’s end.
