What a day …hope you caught the news from yesterday morning’s PCA Nominees Press Conference — so many stars to choose from …so many actors, actresses, singers, shows and movies. Now begins the countdown til our January 6th broadcast, when the 2010 PCA winners will be announced. And the best part, of course, is that YOU will decide who takes home EACH trophy. It’s all about you. (Me? I have to say I was absolutely thrilled that Twilight and members of its awesome cast were nominated as I am an unabashed fan but we’ll get to that later. While we’re at it…9 days from today is the New Moon premiere.)
But wait — TV news — did you see that Aaron Carter was summarily sent home from Dancing With The Stars? Now only Donny, Mya, Kelly and Joanna remain for the final hoof-off.
Now back to the People’s Choice Awards. Where to start with our 2010 nominees…how about Favorite Movie Actor. One of the most popular categories ever. In this group we have 5 guys, each of whom enjoys a more than devoted fan base, to say the least. The 5 are Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson, and Ryan Reynolds. (2 Americans, 1 Canadian, an Australian and an Englishman). Each inspires a tremendous following, all have starred in hit movies, and all have — to a greater or lesser degree — pretty good acting chops. That said, let’s base our poll today on the work of one of them (we’ll get to the others down the road)…and see how you feel about this guy’s (multiple) movie credentials. First up, let’s take a look at some of nominee Brad Pitt’s films. He’s done a great many of them, so we’re going to try and pull a reasonable cross section for you all to think about and vote on. (In fact, I’m sure you will all suggest countless other BP pics that weren’t included. But let’s just consider a few for now.) So why not voice your choice in today’s featured poll and tell us which of these Brad Pitt movies is your favorite.
1) Fight Club
2) Mr. and Mrs. Smith
3) The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
4) Ocean’s Eleven
