Nominations for January and February

It's been rather quiet around here, but I think the holidays have most of us crazed at the moment. I hope we get more active as we enter the new year. I look forward to watching even more movies as I craft and knit and spin inspired!

It's time for the next two month's nominations. The themes for the coming months are:

January - Biographical films or biopics. Here, we're looking for movies that deal with a historical personages life. Examples include: Elizabeth, The Aviator, The Coal Miner's Daughter, Yankee Doodle Dandy, A Beautiful Mind, Mommy Dearest, etc.

February - Romance movies. Yes, it's cliche, but a person can go many directions with this theme. There are romantic comedies, classic romances, melodramatic romances, lots of choices! Have fun with this one. I'm not even going to suggest some examples to keep the field wide open.

So, please nominate two movies for each category in the comments section of this post. Nominations will be accepted until next Wednesday, December 20th at midnight PST. Just as in previous nominations, if you can't think of a second movie to nominate, consider seconding another nominated movie. Seconded movies will make it to our final vote. Voting will begin on Thursday December 21st and extend to Friday December 29th.

For biographies, how about Great Balls of Fire, or Walk the Line?

Romances...how about a little something different, like Bride and Prejudice?

For biographies: Ray and Walk the Line

For romance: Pride and Prejudice, Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human (the best movie ever!)

Biography: I was going to say Ray and Walk the Line
For romance...I was going to suggest the BBC's Pride and Prejudice (the ultimate for deadline knitting: 6 hours long!) and When Harry Met Sally...I guess I'm not very original!
