  • 2nd Annual Canuck Awards

    Gentlemen of SWDC, as you are all aware, our esteemed member comahan prepares and delivers an awards show, called the Commie Awards, every year. However, last year, he approached me, and one of our other beloved members, Fischbowl, and asked us to do a similar award show as a precursor to his far superior and prestigious presentation. If the Commie Awards are SWDC's version of The Oscars, the Canuck Awards would be the Golden Globes.

    So with that said, and with the Commie Awards a mere week away, I present to you the 2010, and 2nd Annual Canuck Awards! My lovely partner fischbowl was not available to assist me this year, so I've been doing this thing Han style..Solo! Hit the spoiler below to see last year's winners.



    The Canuck Awards have been significantly altered this year, with the adding and removing of several categories.

    This has been a somewhat down year for movies, an interesting paradox considering the Oscars have upped the number of best picture nominees to 10. However, there was still plenty of quality to be found amongst the rubble left by duds such as Transformers 2 and G.I Joe. So without further ado, I present your 2010 Canuck Award Nominations! Winners will be announced tomorrow night. Feel free to comment, post predictions, or whatever else tickles your fancy.

            Basterds was #6, and it really was a toss up between it and An Education, which I only recently watched and found to be absolutely spectacular.

              Emma Stone?
              Hell, I'd rather see Mya Rudoph there. And probably many others.

                Tis true but, Moon at least deserves to be listed. Sony really screwed Rockwell and Jones over on this one. Beautiful movie.

                As for Emma Stone...bleh. I dont see the appeal, and her raspy voice doesnt do it for me. lol

                Thanks BoneKrusher^

                          Here we go! Starting the 2010 Canuck Awards is Best Visual Effects. The nominees...

                          Best Visual Effects
                          Avatar
                          The Lovely Bones
                          Star Trek
                          Where the Wild Things Are
                          Watchmen

                          And the winner is...



                          Reasoning: Do I really need to explain? This was the biggest lock of the century. While some of the other films featured some impressive visual effects, none came close to the mind-blowing immersion of Avatar.

                              Next up, Best Screenplay! The Nominees...

                              Best Screenplay
                              Up in the Air
                              500 Days of Summer
                              Inglourious Basterds
                              Where the Wild Things Are
                              The Fantastic Mr. Fox

                              And the award goes to...



                              Reasoning: While all the aforementioned movies featured strong stricts, the beautiful extended dialogue scenes and the willingness to rewrite history in an attempt to make a more entertaining movie earn Basterds the win. Quentin Tarantino may be an arrogant prick, but he writes dialogue like no one else.
