    Anne’s logic is so baffling. If she had A Prophet in her 2009 tally because that is when she saw it, then Fish Tank should be 2010. A qualifying run that apparently no one knew about should not factor in.

    That poster list is actually rather poor to tell the truth.

    Is Anne sure about that? Fish Tank’s own publicist told me otherwise last year.

    Yeah, I don’t know what’s going on with that. I feel like I heard elsewhere recently that it wasn’t eligible for Oscars this year.

    Interesting… I usually do my personal list so that it features film illegible for the Oscars (not that it really matters). Fish Tank was definitely going to be on my list this year. I find it odd that IFC would do a qualifying run in LA only and wait until the next year to play at the IFC Theater in NYC?

    I think the Yogi Bear poster is actually the best of the year, if Yogi Bear is a lewd homosexual sex comedy about sodomizing bears.

    Fish Tank would make my list too. How come nobody knows about this qualifying run?

    Everybody considers it a 2010 US release.

    How could that list of year’s best posters not include The Social Network?

    It was a good poster, but the giant words over a face has been done a lot lately, and better.
