2010 Film Guy Awards

2010 was one of the darkest periods for those invested in the Oscars. In a year full of rich and eclectic films and nominees, the Academy once again decided to play it safe by awarding the sentimental yet way too traditional British biopic The King's Speech. While it isn't a bad movie and in fact is perfectly fine, it pales in comparison to its competition which has a much stronger showing here along with plenty of those that were completely under the radar. This is the 2010 Film Guy Awards. Enjoy!
