I’m not one to create “best of” lists or wax poetic about my favorite things, mostly because I have a high threshold for amazement. There were plenty of great moments in 2011, but I find that the best way to reflect on a year in entertainment is to analyze major award nominations. So, my “best of” list for Hollywood films this year has taken the shape of my votes for the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards. A lot of quality films hit the big screen this past year, and many of them are captured in my Globe picks. We’ll see how these compare to the actual results on Sunday, January 15, 2012. How do your picks compare?
