Hey guys, as you know award season is upon us! First up is the People’s Choice Awards, this Thursday, January 5 on CBS.

Below are some of the TV/Movie nominations and my thoughts. Peruse if you want. Do you agree with me? And Dude, how come Inception isn’t on the Favorite Movie’s list?

Favorite MOVIE

  • Alice In Wonderland
  • Inception
  • Iron Man 2
  • Toy Story 3
  • The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

What I Want to Win: Toy Story 3
What I Think Will Win: Twilight Saga Eclipse.
Thoughts: Since the people’s choice awards are basically a popularity contest, as it should be – people’s choice, I FEAR, with this whole Twilight craze, Twilight will prevail in this category. However, I think Toy Story 3 could pull an upset for the Twi-hards. We can all hope, yeah?


  • Johnny Depp
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Robert Downey Jr.
  • Robert Pattinson
  • Taylor Lautner

Who I Want to Win: Leonardo Dicaprio
Who I Think Will Win: Robert Pattinson
Thoughts: Really, I think I’ll be happy if either Leo or RDJ wins, but again, with the whole Twilight craze, it’ll probably be RPattz.



  • Angelina Jolie
  • Jennifer Aniston
  • Julia Roberts
  • Katherine Heigl
  • Kristen Stewart

Who I Want to Win: Reese Witherspoon
Who I Think Will Win: Kristen Stewart or Angelina Jolie
Thoughts: Okay, okay, so Reese Witherspoon wasn’t in anything this year to even be considered to be on this list, but the rest are slim pickins. I’m not a fan of Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Aniston, I like Katherine Heigl sometimes, but The Killers was just awful. So…yeah. ..moving on.



  • Iron Man 2
  • Kick-Ass
  • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
  • Robin Hood
  • Salt

What I Want to Win: Kick Ass
What I Think Will Win: Iron Man.
Thoughts: Seriously? Where’s Inception?



  • Angelina Jolie
  • Bradley Cooper
  • Jackie Chan
  • Jake Gyllenhaal
  • Robert Downey Jr

Who I Want to Win: Robert Downey Jr.
Who I Think Will Win: Angelina Jolie
Thoughts: Again, Leonardo Dicaprio? He should most definitely be on this list!



  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Dear John
  • Inception
  • The Social Network
  • The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

What I Want to Win: Either the Social Network or Inception, with the edge a little more to Inception.
What I think Will Win: Twilight.
Thoughts: Really? Inception as a Drama? And seriously? Dear John is on this list? Seriously? I hated that movie. It’s not a drama.



  • Despicable Me
  • How to Train Your Dragon
  • The Karate Kid
  • Shrek Forever After
  • Toy Story 3

What I Want to Win: Toy Story 3
What I Think Will Win: Toy Story 3
Thoughts: I’d be okay if How To Train Your Dragon Won.  But Toy Story 3 deserves it.

  • True Blood
  • White Collar

What I Want to Win: Dexter

  • Blue Bloods
  • Chase
  • The Defenders
  • Detroit 1-8-7
  • The Event
  • Hawaii Five-O
  • Hellcats
