>Jake,

>I don't see your picks for 2010. Did I miss them...?

 

 

I only had 3 picks I liked for 2009 so I combined them with

2010 with the same post.

 

Probably finish tonight with 2012 and 2013 combined.

 

It's been fun.

I didn't realize you put those two years together. Thanks for explaining that.

 

>It's been fun.

 

I've had fun with these threads, too! I wanted to reach 2013 before this year's Oscars, and I think I will make it (just in the nick of time).

I didn't think it was terrible, either. I think it was overrated though, by those who loved it. I prefer the 1933 version best.
