Aaron’s 2010 Ira Ballot

OK – So I won’t make fun of your utterly common ballot, Alex… but I do wonder if you’re a secret member of the Hollywood Foreign Press and vote on the Golden Globes… or if you vote for the People Choice Awards (Lifetime Achievement this year will go to Jennifer Aniston! I love her in Friends!). I’ve seen 187 movies from 2010 and this was a rather hard ballot to fill out. There are a lot of sixth and seventh place finishers who could creep up the line on Ira night depending on what’s going on in the room.
