berenicebejo theartistAs the year stands behind us and we gear up for the upcoming award shows including the Critics Choice Awards which will be broadcast on VH1, Thursday, January 12th @ 8pm ET.  Make sure you tune in.

As for our own critics here at the Awards Circuit, I am pleased to present the Staff Writers choices for the Top 10 Best Films of 2011.  Having a hand in hiring most of these writers that are on board, I am also eager to see the eclectic tastes as we try to form a non-consensus here at the site.  We fully embrace how we are all different and look at film in a different way from our next critic or reader.  We respect and we view with curiosity.  I sincerely hope the readership of the Awards Circuit will share your Top Ten films in the comment section because I’m eager to hear what you guys and gals loved in 2011 as well.

Without further ado, here is the Top Ten Films of 2011 for each writer including the Editor-in-Chief:
