To check nominees in all categories go here.  Winners will be announced on Friday, January 14, 2011 at 9:00pm ET/PT and will VH1 will broadcast the award ceremony. Is the first year that the show will also be broadcast internationally so we’ll be able to watch on our own TV.

Already realized that there is a pattern for most categories, but this association really has some “strange” selections; for example can you believe that they nominated only 3 fims in the foreign language film category? Maybe they don’t watch much non-English cinema as there are MANY excellent movies that should be included in the category. Still I'm glad that Noomi Rapace is being honored as she truly deserves for her close to perfection Lisbeth.
