Genie Winners and Other News

The Genie Awards took place last night and Passchendaele was the big winner. The full list of winners is under the cut, but first a small announcement: I've apparently lost my mind and decided that I'm not quite busy enough and, as such, I've started contributing to Culturazzi Cognoscente Club, which has a large database of reviews of films and books amongst other things, some written by my fellow LAMBs Srikanth Srinivasan at The Seventh Art and Shubhajit at Cinemascope. I've already written reviews of Blindness and This Is Spinal Tap and will hopefully add many more to the list so come by and check it out.
