2011 OSCAR BEACHHOUSE AWARD WINNERS

Here is my full list of winners for this year's Oscar Beachhouse awards. A very wide range of films nominated in 26 categories, and when it came down to it, I found myself doling out at least 1 award to 19 different films, which is by far a record for me, with the previous record being 16 (back in 2006). Granted, a few new categories (and one gone [Best Scene]), but still a very wide-cast net this year. A lot of admire, a lot to love, and a lot to reward. In previous years, since I started doing this back in 2000, the Best Pic winners were...
