The Votes Are in: Best Comedy, Drama and "Little Movie" of 2007

This month I've been polling you guys on everything from who you think the best breakout TV star is to which on-screen movie romance you think was the best of 2007. Now lets see which actors, movies, albums, and TV shows earned the top honors. Drumroll please . . .

Best Comedy of 2007: Superbad
This is an Apatow-loving crowd, apparently: Superbad won Best Comedy, though Knocked Up was fairly close behind it. The other comedies barely stood a chance in this competition. Popular write-ins include Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? and Death at a Funeral.

I myself voted for Knocked Up, though it took a while to choose between that one, Superbad, and Hairspray (it's just so feel good!).

Best Drama/Thriller of 2007: Zodiac
The votes for this poll were much closer, with Zodiac winning by about 30 votes over Disturbia. Right behind that thriller was No Country For Old Men, though Gone Baby Gone very nearly tied with the Coen Bros. film, and one notable write-in was for Before the Devil Knows Your Dead.

This was perhaps the most difficult poll of all because there were some really solid dramas this year. I ultimately went with A Mighty Heart, but it was agonizing to choose between that, Gone Baby Gone, and American Gangster.

To find out which movie was chosen "best little movie that could,"


Best Little Movie That Could: Waitress
Waitress took the top honors by a long shot as your favorite "little movie," though Darjeeling Limited and Lars and the Real Girl were nearly tied for second place. Popular write-ins included Once and Juno.

I had to go with Waitress as well, for it occupies a tender place in my heart, but I thought almost all of the little movies on the list were well done.

Wow, Zodiac was that good? We passed it over because my sister-in-law said it was slow and boring. Now I'm going to have to give it a shot!

Zodiac had me captivated throughout and for a longer movie to do that, is unusual. It was a great movie.

I am very pleased that Zodiac won. I too am so dissapointed that it's been virtually ignored by viewers and awards :( It deserves much better than it's getting.

I rented Superbad this past weekend and have seen it over and over. I just love such juvenile movies! I also rented Waitress, but it was just sort of blah for me. Not boring, not cute, not fun, not anything really. Just a movie. The only moving thing about it was the behind-the-scenes event of the director/writer/actor Adrienne Shelley's death. The memorial was heartbreaking.

Loved Waitress, but I had to write in Once. One of the best movies, ever, let alone this year. If you haven't seen it, please do. And you'll want to buy the soundtrack, too.

I, too, am a Zodiac fan. Whip, I hope your prediction for it being an Oscar contender--in any category--comes true. Just watched Waitress this weekend and thought it was brilliant. Buzz, I agree that all the "nominees" in this "best of" category were wonderful.

whiplash i agree it came out too early. i hate how really good films get buried during award seasons because some "harvey weinstein-like" guys/girls are spending tons of money so their films get oscar hype. okay i know this is completely off-topic. and phasekitty, i agree that it was a slowwww film but i love it too much to mention anything negative about it. lol.

Hmmm, I didn't like Knocked Up that much - It was funny but more of an afterthought funny (like, 'wait did something funny just happen, oh yeah it did' then you laugh). I'm not sure if it's because of all the hype around it or the fact I don't really like Katherine Heigl. That's why I'm not going to see Superbad until the hype has completely died down, just in case.

I thought Zodiac was excruciatingly slow and dragged big time. I agree, pinkflats, the set design was fantastic and it was very beautifully shot, but it could have stood to be far shorter.

I think Zodiac came out too early in the year and everyone forgot about it. It was an awesome, awesome movie. My prediction is that it will be nominated for an Oscar in the editing category.

zodiac is brilliant, i'm suprised it's not getting any attention during award seasons. i mean the set design alone made you feel like you were living in the 70s. and the tapping of hands on the typewriters at the newspaper headquarter, i can still hear it.

I just saw Superbad recently and I was disappointed... I prefered Knocked Up. Zodiac was awesome. And I missed Waitress.
