Finishing Up the 2010 Diva Cup Awards

As you may have noticed, 2010 has been over for nearly eight months, yet I'm still rolling out my Diva Cup Awards honoring the best in film from that year. I'm not one for deadlines, especially when it comes to this, but it's time to finish this up. The problem is, I don't really have the time or the energy to do a long write-up defending my choices at the moment. So, what I'll do is give you my nominees for Best Actor & Actress and my Top 10 Films of the year with the promise that I will write about these more in the future. I realize only a few people will actually care about that but it would be more for myself than anyone. Without further ado, here are the final awards:

Best Actor
Aaron Eckhart, Rabbit Hole
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine
Édgar Ramirez, Carlos
Mark Wahlberg, The Fighter

And the Diva Cup Award Goes to: Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network

Best Actress

Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
Lesley Manville, Another Year
Emma Stone, Easy A
Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

And the Diva Cup Goes to: Emma Stone, Easy A

So glad to see someone else feting Eckhart who so many I've heard say was only serviceable opposite Nic.
