by Dylan · January 28, 2009 · LIONs for LAMB · 3 Comments

The votes have been cast, the independent accounting firm of Fletch & Fletch has been consulted, and the time has come for the LIONs to be handed out.

Before we get started, I just want to say that I highly recommend clicking on the Lion-O picture and reading his intro for full comedic effect. Thanks.

Our seventh award for presentation is for Best Actor. There were a total of 55 votes, and what resulted was a dead heat between our top two vote-getters. Coming in second, with 13 votes, Mickey Rourke for The Wrestler:

Your winner, with 14 votes, is Sean Penn for Milk:

Meanwhile, the bonus award for Best Out-there Vote swung back to Scott of Mendelson’s Memos. Scott chose Jason Bateman’s career-defining performance in Hancock as his winner. Congrats, Scott..

Next up…The LAMB’s Top 10 Films of the Year. Can you guess what they are? How about just the top 5? Stay tuned to the LAMB for more of the LIONs and for our Academy Awards series, The LAMB Devours the Oscars, as tomorrow we’ll segue from one event right into the next.

    Honestly, if I’d seen Hancock prior to voting…I might have gone with Bateman as well. He was good in Hancock. My only complaint is that he played the same character he always plays.

  2. Fletch says:

    Yea, I like Bateman as much as the next guy…but…uh…WTF?

    On the other hand, it looks like he’s playing a greasy s.o.b. in that new Benaflek/Russ Crowe movie. Could be interesting…

    I didn’t see “The Wrestler” until last night…so now I will cast a late vote for Mickey Rourke. In a word…Wow.
