Those who are normally shouting T.G.I.F. might be saving their enthusiasm for T.G.I.S. That’s right everyone, Oscar Sunday is upon us this weekend. Although the 84th Academy Awards are arriving a tad early this year, I will not mind swapping my usual Sunday nominee (Mitt Romney) with Rooney Mara (Best Actress in a Leading Role; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
For the godfather of Oscars, Best Picture, 6 out of 9 of this year’s nominations are actually adaptions from novels (Can you hear the bookworms across America squealing?). Other awards, including Costume Design (Jane Eyre) and Art Direction (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2), are also rooted in literature. While The Help (Brunson Green, Chris Columbus and Michael Barnathon, Producers) wins the race in the Goodreads ratings according to Random House, The Artist (Thomas Langmann, Producer) is rumored to be most likely to take home the Oscar.

In 2011 I saw nearly 250 USA released films, not counting the Independent offers viewed at film festivals or sent to my home for comment. Unfortunately this was no year to brag about due to an over abundance of sequels, enough superhero’s to save two planets, worn out story-lines, not enough good drama, a lot of raunchy romance with more skin and sex than in an art house, very few box-office blowouts, a small number of good acting newcomers, and some bad performances by our legends.
The following is my selections for the best of 2011 each selected for their uniqueness and strong presentation that provides enjoyable entertainment. Read more
