2011 bloggers’ choice awards: THE NOMINEES

The votes are in!  After a somewhat eventful morning with Jennifer Lawrence, hopefully you’re ready to see the choices of the film bloggers!  Though no one film had the showing Black Swan had in last year’s voting (11 nominations), a couple came close, with Drive and The Help leading the nomination count at 8 nominations apiece.  The polls for picking the winners will be open until the night before the Oscars, so you have ample time to make your choices.  Here are this year’s nominees (and for a refresher, feel free to check out last year’s):

2nd film bloggers choice awards: TIME to CAST YOUR VOTES

It’s that time of year again folks!  After last year’s fun, I figured it would be good to bring back the film blogger-chosen awards – so head over to the polls if you’re interested and participate in the second annual mock Oscar poll.  The votes are tallied based on rankings and the firmest grasp I can muster on the convoluted AMPAS style of vote-compiling.  Ballots are due by Jan. 24, when the nominees will be announced.  And be sure to come back here to vote on the winners when the time comes!  This is all in good fun, but it only works if you participate, so humor me and help me out – voice your opinion on the best of 2011!
