Best of 2011  




PEOPLE

PERSON OF THE YEAR
1. Elizabeth Olsen
“I think it’s just staying grounded. It’s not something I think about. I think it’s something media puts upon people. I don’t think it’s something that people healthily think about, like, ‘Now I’m a celebrity!’ I don’t think people should think like that. I hope that whatever press comes about from Sundance will further the films’ hope for getting distribution.”


2. Harry Potter cast


3. Community cast


4. Karen Gillan

MOVIES



MOVIE OF THE YEAR
"Elizabeth Olsen, in a breakthrough performance that establishes her as a presence notable for far more than being the younger sister of those "Full House" twins, plays the harrowed title character, whose sense of identity is as confused as the tongue-twisting title on the marquee suggests." - Huffington Post

TELEVISION (SOME NEW TO ME)

TELEVISION SHOW OF THE YEAR
"The truth is, pretty much every time Miranda turns and looks at the camera, I burst out laughing. And even when her slapstick is so obvious it wouldn't confuse a small child. I still laugh. Even when I'm trying not to. Even when I really, really don't want to." - Chris Harvey

FAVORITE SHIPS

FAVORITE SHIP ON TELEVISION
"I think what it is between Jess and Nick is they're just really keeping tabs on each other, I think Nick would have to be in love with her for so long that it would have to be like a gas tank overflowing. But I don't think right now Nick would have the guts to do it." - Nick Johnson

BOOKS

BOOK OF THE YEAR
"In a sweeping narrative reminiscent of the epic classic Dr. Zhivago comes a love story that takes place in war-torn Russia during World War II. Named for a statue in Red Square, The Bronze Horseman is a perfect blend of romance, suspense, and intrigue, guaranteed to transport readers to another place and time." - B&N

MUSIC

ALBUM OF THE YEAR
"21 is simply stunning. After only a handful of plays, it feels like you’ve always known it. It will see Adele become an even greater award magnet come the end of the year, leaving her contemporaries for dust. Genuinely brilliant." - BBC

SINGLES
1. Rolling In The Deep - Adele
2. Poison and Wine - The Civil Wars
3. We Found Love - Rihanna
4. Not Over You - Gavin Degraw
5. Countdown - Beyonce
6. Arms - Christina Perri
7. Marathon - Tennis
8. With Ur Love - Cher Lloyd

PC GAMES

GAME OF THE YEAR
"Many centuries ago, a princess kissed a frog and transformed him into a handsome prince. Unlike the fable, they never ended happily ever after. It is rumored that the Frog Prince is still alive and now roams the deserted path in the Black Forest, capturing unsuspecting visitors. When the chancellor's daughter goes missing, you are sent to investigate her disappearance." - BigFishGames

BEST FASHION




FASHION ICON OF THE YEAR
""Can I tell you how grateful I am to Kate Middleton? Because she is such an advocate for dressing like a lady." - Anne Hathaway
 
 
Current Music: pause - emily barker

Love this! Particularly, The Dark Parables, haha. Do you know if they're releasing another?

I love Jess/Nick too. Still in its early stages, but it could go somewhere cool, if the writers decide to go down that route. :D

Definitely gonna check out some of the films you mentioned.

Thank you! I'm glad you do! The sequel to that one is actually in my list, it's called Rise of the Snow Queen! So go check it out, it's actually really good.

Yeah, I like that they have not done anything major with them yet. I think that if they had kissed or slept together early on, it wouldn't really last. So I like that they're building them up to be something really good.

Ah, please do! Let me know too! :D
