Bob and Justin's Mad Movie Blog

My name is Bob. My friend Justin and I are aspiring filmmakers and we have pretty similar tastes in movies. This will include our take on what's going on in film and television today as well as updating you on the status of our own work.

Here They Are At Last...

THE BOB AWARD NOMINATIONS!!! Proof that I spent an awful lot of time watching movies over the past year. I counted all year long and in all I saw exactly 100 of the films released in 2006 plus two more that have yet to be released ("Snow Cake" and "OSS 117," both of which incidentally did very well). It's incomplete sure. I missed a few that might have been here. For instance two of my favorite movies of '05 ("Everything Is Illuminated" and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang") I wasn't able to see until long after I'd made my list for that year. So yeah, it's not perfect but I did the best I could. Actually seeing as many as I did was quite an undertaking and honestly I doubt I'll be doing it again. It's just too much, man! When I announce the winners I'll also (probably) post my top 20 for the year. Yes, in some of the categories I have six nominees instead of five. You got a problem with that? Start up your own unofficial awards that don't actually mean anything and slap your name on it. So without further Apu here they are, once again putting the Oscars to shame:
