Do you agree with their Top 11 Film of 2009 list or do you think there are movies missing in the list that you think are much better in those list? I agree with An Education (probably because it's the only film in the list I've seen, lol), but personally I think NBR snubbed these underrated and much better lil' films: Precious (esp. Mo'Nique for Best Supporting Actress, the best one I've seen this year, yet...NBR failed to recognized her and the film itself getting rave reviews both by critics and audiences, great box office gross, and other well-deserving accolades and recognition...yet NBR ignored this film) and The Young Victoria (Emily Blunt for Best Actress. I love Carey Mulligan and is happy for her being named the Best Actress, but acting-wise I heard Emily Blunt was amazing in The Young Victoria, which I'll be seeing very soon). Not too mention, these yet to be released films: Brothers, Nine (for Best Ensemble), and Sherlock Holmes were ignored or not mentioned in their top 11 list.
