FA: United 2010 saw the awards ceremony for the 2009 Ursa Major Awards. Nine winners across ten categories received awards based on votes from fans. The full list of winners are below.
Voting for the 2009 Ursa Major Awards starts today, and the nominee list has been officially released (though many of you already saw the leaked list yesterday). The entire nomination list can be seen on the Ursa Major website. I’m not going over everything, just being snarky about a few of them.
In an amusing, though unsurprising, turn of events, a decent amount of people have come to the conclusion that they are Na’vi on the inside.
Damn there were a lot of movies this year! Even between the three of us we didn’t manage to see enough films. Plus half of the films we all saw were total crap, (turns out New Moon still sucks on the 3rd and 4th viewings). But 2009 had some standouts, and before all the bullshit award shows start happening, here’s our picks for some of the best this year.
Now I’ll admit I was one of the people turned off by the hype surrounding Avatar. “The greatest adventure of all time” is how every major blockbuster is touted, but to say this film will reinvent movies seems a little absurd. Avatar is a major technical and artistic achievement, though, and it should be seen by everyone, even if it won’t actually change how you experience movies forever.
