2009 Diva Cup Awards: The Oscar Categories

Next up in my Diva Cup Awards are the traditional Oscar categories. I've decided to forgo explanations for my picks because, quite simply, I'm ready to move on from 2009 and can't be bothered to write a little quip about the makeup in Drag Me to Hell. If you're curious, though, feel free to leave a comment or drop me an e-mail. I always appreciate a friendly conversation with my (seven) readers.

The inclusion of [rec] in cinematography is an interesting one.

Proprs for the Jennifer's Body.

And even from those small stills, all the costumes in the nominated category looked amazing, no way I could pick a winner.
