Re: The Third Annual ReelViews Academy Award Winners!
I'm genuinely and pleasantly surprised. I thought Drive would win Best Picture and I'm really impressed with the way we shared the love. A Separation for Best Picture, Drive for Director and Tinker Tailor for Best Ensemble? Hell yes!!! Those are three very well thought out choices and it shows that we didn't just autopilot vote. I've always loved our winners more than the Oscars, but this year I think we really nailed it. By far, my favourite of the three Pedros.
To Pedro: thanks again for doing this. Are the auditors down with releasing any voting statistics? I'd love to know how many people voted. I'm assuming we had a good turnout this year.
Yeah, Shannon was my top choice but I did a double take when I saw that he won. I had not realised that enough people saw Take Shelter so this was a nice surprise. I do really love Fassbender, but I still haven't seen Shame (which is a shame
Agreed. Certified Copy was my top choice in most categories but it would appear that it was not as widely seen as A Separation which is a little weird considering it's been out much longer. I did nominate Margin Call, but it was in the Best Costume category. Those were some crisp business suits!
Well put. It's certainly a mood piece. And, it's easy to confuse it as an exercise of style over substance. Drive is style as substance. And that's cool. Very cool.
