BYP’s List: 2010 Movie Awards


And so, we’ve finally closed the guide on 2010. Today, as we cross over into the brand new year, this’s when a lot of people reflect back on the season before. Within the film world, this’s also when critics as well as movie lovers take the time period to write the review of the previous 12 months. Not to mention, this’s awards season.

For example, you will see several of the normal categories, but the same there’ll be several off beat ones. Given all of the various other small facets of creating a film help to create a film better, however I think entertainment succeeds a movie ‘s technical prowess to be able to explain whether it’s great or perhaps not. Thus, you will not be seeing me awarding these “artsy” films only due to their “cinematic achievement” (whatever the hell which is actually).

Best Film: Inception

For me it came right down to Black Swan and Inception. I have honestly spent days or weeks mulling it over in the head of mine which would be the movie of mine of the season. Nevertheless, in the long run, Inception wins out. Inceptionwas also ideal in a sense. With smart writing, acting that is good, exciting action, cinematography that is great and so on etc, the film proved to be outstanding color with great material. A narrative genius. Everyone in Hollywood must be taking notes. This’s precisely the way in which a blockbuster movie must be done. Let us not child ourselves, blockbuster action films are going to continue to be the bread as well as butter of Hollywood for a while to come. While this’s okay, the issue generally lies in they are very shallow and cliche and simply “eh”. They generally just depend on unique action sequences and astonishing looking special effects. Not Inception, however. This great combination makes Inception the movie of mine of the season.

Best Actor: James Franco – 127 Hours

I have said it before and I will say it again: you should evaluate the merit of an actor? Toss him in a film just where he’s basically the only one actually on screen and he’s to carry the whole video himself. Exactly where the entire mass of the whole video rests most assuredly on the shoulders of his. Will he shine? Will he crumble? This’s the test. And truly I think this (and the “retard role”) is actually among probably the biggest methods to evaluate an actor and find out if he has 1 of the greats. And so, enter James Franco as well as 127 Hours. Does he succeed? Damn right he does. Making it intriguing, conveying a range of feelings throughout the movie and sucking you in most on his own, Franco evidently shows he’d the mettle to deal with such a challenging task and then come out on top.

Best Actress: Natalie Portman – Black Swan

Natalie’s overall performance in the Aronofsky emotional thriller is completely amazing. I think probably the biggest factor for an honest actor/actress is range. Anybody is able to show in a part which was simply made for these people (in line because of their organic persona), but stove and actively playing various personas/characters is the place where an actor/actress is able to show their real prowess. She exhibited far more range in a single performance than many do in the entire career of theirs. For such a remarkable performance Natalie Portman gets the vote of mine as actress of the season. I do not believe this’s actually up for debate.

Best Supporting Actor: Christian Bale – The Fighter

Here is another I think is simply a given and is not up for debate. Bale definitely stole the show in each and every scene he came out in the Fighter. The weight reduction alone shows Bale’s commitment to the craft of his. In addition, the way he managed to lose himself in this crackhead persona and into the job of Dicky Eklund simply further proved what an incredible actor Bale is actually. It’d to nearly be like searching in a mirror for Dicky.

Best Supporting Actress: Melissa Leo – The Fighter

Indeed, the supporting cast of the Fighter was simply amazing. They are the ones that kept the film afloat. Without these 2, The Fighter bombs.

Best Director: Darren Aronofsky – Black Swan

Aronofsky’s perform here was damn near ideal. It was a brilliantly directed film. As among my favorite contemporary directors, it is no surprise that Aronofsky carries on to wow year after year.

Best Screenplay: Mark Heyman, Andres Heinz and John McLaughlin – Black Swan

That said, it is no surprise this, for me personally, came right down to Black Inceptionagain and Swan; the 2 films vying for the Best Film award of mine. The story was terrific in the opinion of mine. Really thrilling and interesting story which left you on the seat of yours the entire while through. In order to finish it off, however, was all of the subtext present throughout the movie. Really was a fantastic story and I enjoyed how the primary character’s life began mirroring the extremely character she was trying to enjoy on stage.

Best Ensemble Cast: The Fighter

I suppose after the prior supporting awards, this can occur as no surprise. Nevertheless, the cast of the Fighter done very well in all of areas. Perhaps Mark Wahlberg was good enough (and I do not particularly take care of him). However, he was the weak link along with the actual character of his was boring. Nevertheless, everybody else turned in good performances that, as an entire, truly pulled you into the household in the movie. Then the performances of Leo and Bale really only pressed the general ensemble over the top part. Meanwhile, Amy Adams shipped a really great performance also standing out.

Breakout Performance of the Year: Jennifer Lawrence – Winter’s Bone

The film itself, I discovered was pretty overrated. Nevertheless, Jennifer Lawrence in winter ‘s Bone did an absolutely fantastic job of playing the job of Ree Dolly. Nevertheless, her performance was extremely good to look at. It made it flat additional rewarding as I got to experience that this particular female is really an extremely adept actress. Which, truthfully, there are actually a million and one females in the nation which could pull that off.

Greatest Action Movie: Inception

The film fires on all cylinders for a nearly nonstop joyride, particularly for the very last one half of the movie. Once again, this’s just about the Hollywood-action-blockbuster movie perfected.


Best Comedy: Get Him to the Greek

Ok, here is where some may take issue with me (in case they have not already). Nevertheless, it is the belief of mine that Best Comedy film must primarily be based on which film was probably the funniest. Russell Brand is simply hilarious. And the part of his as the regular rock star was hilarious and great. For me, it actually was probably the funniest film of the season.

Best Animated Movie: How to Train Your Dragon

Yep, I am doing it. Granted, I actually appreciated Toy Story three, but for me How you can Train Your Dragon was simply the better video and was a lot more fun. It was adorable, funny, uplifting in its own manner and relaxing. I truly liked the film. One that really appeals to both adults as well as kids alike.

Greatest Horror Movie: Paranormal Activity two

I enjoyed the very first one as well as the sequel proves no different. Truly a relaxing film in the genre, I cannot wait for part three this fall.

Best Thriller: The Town

Indeed, I recognize Black Swan is actually a thriller, and I definitely agree it is the much better video. Nevertheless, just like the comedy film, I believe probably the Best Thriller film must be judged pretty much entirely on the “thrill” part. Nevertheless, The Town only had me actually on the edge of the seat of mine from start to complete pretty much.

Best Docudrama: The Social Network

The Social Network is not just any film however. Becoming 1 of the most talked about films of the season and making a serious video to be film of the season, the film is actually an excellent all around film that every person must see. And it may be probably the most significant flicks of modern day (that or maybe its counterpart’ Catfish’).

Greatest Indie Film: Buried

And this particular fight arena was one of the ones that stood out above the others. Creative, cool to look at, action packed, it actually was only a truly fun fight and reasonably awesome.

Tearjerker of the Year: Toy Story 3

Did I actually cry? No. Nevertheless, Toy Story three I think is the film of the season which will more than likely make someone cry. Perhaps it is simply the level of emotion produced in several scenes which hit home for nearly all individuals in a real life way.
