The 4th Annual Awards Psychic Awards: Nominees

I have taken a few days off to a) enjoy the holidays, and b) because there really wasn't much news to report. I hope that you and your families enjoyed the week, and that you have gotten some much needed rest because the Oscar season is about to explode with SAG, the Globes, and guild nominations. One of my new favorite traditions this time of year is the annual announcement of my favorite films and performances of the year. Yes guys, it is time for the 4th (is it the 4th already?) Annual Awards Psychic Awards. Tonight, enjoy this year's nominees, and on New Year's Eve, I will announce my winners for the year, as well as my top ten films (twenty actually).
