15th Critics Choice Awards Nominations

December 14, 2009 — Leave a comment

More nominations. Are you keeping up?

These nominations seem like a pretty random bunch. Especially considering Nine has had little to no love until now… with 10 nominations (a big WEEEE for Marion!!), and also finally some love true for Inglourious Basterds~

You can actually visit the Critics Choice website on VH1 and vote, even though I have no idea why you can vote… isn’t it Critics Choice? Is this just for fun voting? LOL

I’ve seen all the Foreign films nominated, 3/5 of docus, 3/5 comedies, 4/5 of action films (watching Avatar tomorrow), 2/5 of animation… though the lack of Mary and Max is poppycock. And 4/10 of Best of 2009.
