The 2011 Hollmann Awards Nominees!

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the nominees for the 2011 HOLLMANN AWARDS!!!

The nominees are chosen from a field of 82 films, which were reduced to fifteen semi-finalists in each of the eighteen categories. From those fifteen, ten have been eliminated to bring about the nominees you now see here.

Traditionally, I post my nominations the day before Oscar announces theirs. Last year, I went for five days before the Academy, just because I figured I had seen everything I was going to see, and the next couple of days were not going to make a difference. This year, I know that I've seen all that I'm gonna see weeks in advance. That's fine. These awards are a representation of my personal film experience in 2011...and now that I live in a city where the 2011 releases come out in the calendar year, I don't have to wait until the end of January to judge that. I cut it off at the end of December, officially making The Iron Lady my 82nd and final film of the year (and nominated twice here...)

I love how specific these nominees are to you, like the love for Super 8. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is one I really want to see before I make my final judgements on the year at the end of the month.

I agree with pretty much all of this. Didn't see anonymous, but aside from that, everything agrees with me as well.
