Movies Of The Year Awards: 1951

How it works: I assign various Oscar-type awards to the movies I’ve seen from each year. I’m not going to include all the Oscar categories, but I’ll get a lot of them, depending on the year. Only films I’ve seen will be eligible for any awards, but I’ll include the Academy’s choices as well, for comparison’s sake, though often the categories and film eligibility are different for their awards than mine.
