Tit for Tat Film Awards 2012   7 comments

Hey everyone! As a movie fan, it is not enough for me to simply just be an awards prognosticator. After all, while the whole guessing game is fun, there are also personal involvement that is related with the whole predicting game. Thus, I”ll finally be revealing my own choices for the past movie year. I have been doing this for many years now, though this is the first time I did all Oscar categories (and then some), so it’s a new approach that I’m doing here. I nominated five choices per each category, and I assigned a gold, silver, and bronze winner in each of them. Take note that these are all personal picks (from the nominees to the winners), and I’m in for some healthy discussion, so you are free to leave comment below. Anyway, here we go with all 22 categories for my Tit for Tat Awards for movie year 2012! 🙂

NOTE: You can right click the photo and open it in a new tab in order to read the commentaries. I tried to upload it in its actual size, but WordPress is limiting it to the size you’re seeing below. Thank you! 🙂
