The 2015 Biggie Awards (& My Top 10 and Bottom 5 of 2014)

The 26th Annual Biggie Awards

for achievements in film for the year 2014

A year like 2014 is precisely why I created my own awards to begin with. It’s a year when the Oscars and I disagreed perhaps more than we ever have. I dutifully watched the Academy Awards this year, as I always do, but I had little to no rooting interest, as almost none of my favorite movies were up in the categories they should’ve been recognized in. Though you’ll find quite a bit of overlap in our acting nominees, I only agree with 3 of the Academy’s 8 Best Picture nominees, and they passed gas on nearly all of their technical categories. What else is new?

I thought 2014 was a good year on the whole, but not great. Maybe a B+ if I were to grade it. The barometer I use in judging an entire year is how many movies I put on my all-time “Movies I Love” list. This year, there were 21 new entrees on that list. There were 22 in 2013 and 25 in 2012. For perspective, the most ever is 31 from 2000. None of 2014’s entries will wind up in my all-time top 100, but that’s a tough list to crack any year.

BIGGIE’S BABES 2014

WARNING! This post can be considered NSFW depending on where you W.

Welcome to Biggie’s Babes! I decided to dust off one of my old annual lists for you guys. I don’t do this post to show off my writing skills or to display any brainpower whatsoever. It’s simply a list of women in the entertainment industry I currently find the most attractive. It’s nice to write something with the neanderthal side of my brain every now and again.

But first, as always, some perspective. I haven’t made this list since 2011, and I haven’t published it online since back in my MySpace blogging days, where it was usually fairly popular amongst my friends. Now I share it with the world entire, primarily because I’ve had some serious writer’s block lately and haven’t had much else to blog about. When I first created this list as a teenager in 1998(!), Jennifer Love Hewitt was my inaugural #1 (if you’ve forgotten how hot she was in the late 90’s, shame on you). After that, I became the conductor of the Jessica Alba bandwagon (she may have been the hottest female ever in her prime). Alba took the #1 spot every year but one between 1999 and 2005. I can’t explain in words how much I worshipped this girl back in the day. She was easily the biggest celebrity crush of my life. In fact, I vividly remember first spotting her in the TRAILER for that awful Drew Barrymore romcom Never Been Kissed in 1999 and deciding immediately I had to find out who this girl was. However, I eventually became incredibly frustrated with her after it became clear she was never going to have a great acting career (and after she got married- gross!), at which point I turned my eyes to Jessica Biel (#1 in ’06, ’07 and ’08). Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears were also consistently near the top of the list in their heydays. I was also in love with that model Kim Smith. I’m actually having a blast looking back at the old lists as I write this, but I’ll digress…
