2011 IN REVIEW: Film Misery Awards (Part 2)

While I certainly believe that films should be appreciated for every element, it is undeniable that some movies are stronger from a technical aspect than a narrative one. For instance I wasn’t in love with the story in Martin Scorcese’s Hugo, but it was an undeniable technical marvel. This is why the films you see receiving technical awards are different than the films that took home prizes yesterday in Part 1 of the Film Misery Awards.

Due to time constraints I am not able to comment on every one of my individual picks below, but please let me know what you think:

    I think that some of the winners might even be the Oscar winners (song, effects, makeup, editing, cinematography and vfx)am the only one I disagree with you is Harry Potter over Hugo in art direction. I loved that one more.

  • worthy winners … wish the give The Muppets an Oscar for Song !!! not very good songs this year except the ones from The Muppets.
