And the Winner Is...

     For my sixth and final Film and Literature paper, I decided to hold my very own personal award show. While many of the films and books we have been exposed to have already been granted a number of prestigious awards, I figured that none would be as thrilling or as truthful as the awards I could bestow. So without any further delay, the Ginny L. Snow awards shall be presented to

     Best Movie: A Streetcar Named Desire director Elia Kazan
     Best Book: Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
     Best Book to Film Adaptation: The Heiress director William Wyler
     Best Actress in a Comedy: Wendy Hiller for Pygmalion
     Best Actor in a Comedy: Leslie Howard for Pygmalion
     Best Actress in a Drama: Vivien Leigh for A Streetcar Named Desire
     Best Actor in a Drama: Marlon Brando for A Streetcar Named Desire
Winning by default:
     Best Suspense Movie: The Innocents
     Best Musical: My Fair Lady

And now for the fun awards...
     Better of the Two: A Doll's House director Patrick Garland
     Biggest Disappointment: Wuthering Heights director William Wyler
     Biggest Hunk: (no contest!) Marlon Brando for A Streetcar Named Desire
     Most Overacting: The cast of Wuthering Heights director William Wyler
     Best Smartass: Leslie Howard for Pygmalion
     Enjoyed Watching the Most: The Heiress director William Wyler
     Never Wanted to Leave So Bad/Biggest Waste of My Time: A Doll's House director Joseph Losey
     Ugliest Leading Man: David Warner (Torvald) for A Doll's House
     Most Annoying Actress: Jane Fonda for A Doll's House
     Got the Best Nap During: It is a tie between A Doll's House (Losey), The Innocents (Clayton...not because it was bad, I was just tired that day), and part of the epic My Fair Lady (Cukor).
     Creepiest Kids: Martin Stephens and Pamela Fanklin for The Innocents
     Never Thought It Would End: My Fair Lady director George Cukor
     Lamest Ending: Los Abismos de Pasion director Luis Buñuel
