The 2011 FMR MAJOR Award Winner for Best Picture

Here it is Everyone.

The major award of the MAJOR Awards.

The Best Picture of 2011.

It’s the biggest question of the week. Which movie is the best? In order to help frame my decision, I asked myself this question… If I could make sure every visitor here saw one movie, which would it be? Because basically, this award equals my TRUE highest recommendation. I gave the trademarked FMR A++ three times this year, but I can only give the Best Picture Leg Lamp once.

Your nominees are: “50/50″, “The Descendants”, “Drive”, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″, “The Help”, “Midnight in Paris”, “Moneyball”, “The Muppets”, and “The Tree of Life”.
