And now for a look back at some of the greatest things in 2009.
AMY ADAMS - With SUNSHINE CLEANING, JULIE AND JULIA, and even NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2, Amy Adams once again proved why it was worth going to the multiplex.
CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM’S SEINFELD REUNION - While the overall season of CURB was a bit hit and miss, the reunion scenes made you realize just how much TV comedy has suffered over the past ten years without Seinfeld. Who ever knew you could become so emotional just seeing that diner set once again?
TED DANSON - Was there a more entertaining performance this year than Ted Danson in HBO's BORED TO DEATH? His George Plimpton like publisher was the funniest character on TV this year, and Danson’s best role since CHEERS. There shouldn't even be any voting, just give him the Emmy.
EXPECTATIONS VS REALITY - The (500) DAYS OF SUMMER party sequence. From it’s use of music (“Hero” by Regina Spektor) to the split screen, one of the finest movie scenes of the year.
NEIL PATRICK HARRIS - The man can do no wrong. From hosting the Tony’s (the best of the Award shows this year) to hosting the Emmys, to continuing his role as Barney on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (which is having its best season currently), he is one of the true stars of the year.
MIRANDA LAMBERT - With her third album, Miranda Lambert proves that there are real musicians making music today.
REGINA SPEKTOR - A favorite of critics for years, I finally caught up with Regina this year, with her new CD, and even getting to see her live. She has quickly become a new favorite, with “Dance Anthem of the 80’s” possibly my favorite song of the year.
THE WEDDING DANCERS - Already parodied on THE OFFICE, with over 36 million views on YouTube, I haven’t gotten sick of this yet. I still love it. The Best YouTube Video of the year.
KRISTEN WIIG - SNL, ADVENTURELAND, EXTRACT and WHIP IT. Another great year for Kristen Wiig.
