Picking "Best Movie of 2009" was difficult because I watched a lot of movies this year (count at 149 right now) that didn't necessarily come out in 2009. I ended up just going with the movie that came out this year that I liked the best. :|

This poll kinda makes me feel like I didn't exist in 2009. Only saw one of those movies, none of the TV shows, heard none of those albums, and read none of those books. :p

Same here! XP

You really shouldn't feel that way at all. It just means that you're out of step with the writers of People magazine, and that's probably a good thing.

More or less the same here.

Oh well, in my world best =/= the most popular/most seen/most read, etc so no surprise there.

Wow, and here I thought Glee had consumed the entire internet. Apparently not this corner!

An unpopular opinion, I know, but I hate that show with the passion of a thousand burning suns. Every character is a loathsome person. (I still watch it, which is how I know that they are such terrible people, but only by fast forwarding from musical number to musical number.)

I don't know ANY of the TV programmes - possibly because I live in the UK, not America...

I live in Canada and have only heard of like 2 of them. I don't watch new tv, it tends to suck ass.
