So, every year, round abouts February or March, I have my very own movie awards, known far & wide (or at least in my household) as The Matt Awards. Basically, I pick my favorite films/actors/actresses, etc. of the year, in various categories, and make note of it for posterity. This year I am (ahem) a tad behind the ball on getting the 2010 awards selected, but have finally hunkered-down and decided. Honestly, it wasn't that difficult, as Inception proved to be -- far and way -- my favorite film of the year (challenged only by The King's Speech).
Here, then, are the Matt Awards for 2010:
Best Picture: Inception
Best Director: Christopher Nolan, for Inception
Best Actor: Colin Firth, for The King's Speech
Best Actress: Annette Benning, for The Kids Are All Right
Best Supporting Actor: John Hawkes, for Winter's Bone
Best Supporting Actress: Dale Dickey, for Winter's Bone
Best Cinematography: Robert Richardson, for Shutter Island
Best Original Score: Hans Zimmer, for Inception
Best Screenplay: David Seidler, for The King's Speech
Best Visual Effects: Inception
Best Foreign Film: The Secret In Their Eyes
That's it, then. The 14th Annual Matt Awards are finally done. Hopefully I won't wait as long to do the 2011 awards.
