My weekend A&E was focused on watching as many films as possible.

Why?

Well, for pleasure, of course. But also because I'm a voting member in the Indiana Film Journalists Association and this is when we pick our annual awards.

I'll be writing about the winners, the process, and my choices in next week's IBJ. 

For now, here's what resulted from our multi-hour debate at Sahm's Tavern (remember, these are the results of the group debating and voting):
