Why do we even have these "best of" surveys that include anything Twilight-related, when obviously all Twilight stuff will win, since the Twitards will vote for any Twilight entry, regardless of its merit.
Amen @suziryder!

Also, I don't think you should have to "read the books!!" to see the merit of an on-screen couple. The movie should stand on its own and the actors should portray the relationship believably and with passion and honesty to deserve the title of best of 2009. You shouldn't have to go back to the book for evidence that the couple is hot - we're basing this on the movie, not the books, first of all, and second, I'd think on screen is where the couple would be steamiest. The fact that you're telling people to read the books as proof of Edward and Bella's passion proves only one thing: that the actors aren't doing their job. Robert Pattinson is stiff as a board, totally unbelievable and without a drop of actual heat, and Kristen Stewart is weak and tepid, she's very much acting and pretending and not actually believing in the role or anything that she's saying, and so her performance falls flat.

The reason people adore Bella and Edward is they're idiots and they believe everything the media tells them. Example: everyone thinking Robert Pattinson is gorgeous, because the media tells them he is. HAS ANYONE ACTUALLY LOOKED AT THE GUY??? He's hideous. And don't even get me started on the books, they are so terribly written it actually hurts.

For me the best were 500 Days of Summer and Away We Go. I was going to vote for Away We Go because I think it's a great portrayal of a realistic yet happy long term relationship, but then I couldn't resist voting for 500 Days of Summer. It hits close to home, we've all been Tom or Summer at some point in our lives...

Time Traveler's Wife. Such a good book. The movie was alright, and I love Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana. Second is the Proposal (though it was more comedy than romance).

of course i'm saying new moon since i'm so fanatical about the franchise, but if they weren't in the running, i'm sure that i would have happily (and easily) found another duo

I voted for Away We Go because I felt that the relationship was really well written and wonderfully acted, it was very realistic and touching. Why do we even have these "best of" surveys that include anything Twilight-related, when obviously all Twilight stuff will win, since the Twitards will vote for any Twilight entry, regardless of its merit. We should have surveys like this: "other than Twilight (which is the best ever OMG! I heart Edward!!), what was the best [fill in the blank] of 2009?"

I have to go with John and Fanny. Their love created literature. Real literature that has lasted almost 200 years.

Adventureland? Really? I tried watching that movie because I liked the cast but it was so bad I had to shut it off before even seeing the outcome.

Away We Go had one of the more realistic portrayals of a long term relationship that I've seen in the movies in quite some time. Call me boring, but I like finding romance in the every day, and I've never really bought into the epic romance of a lot of stories.

I voted for New Moon, even though the gorgeous and noble Edward is not there for a lot of it, the movie ( and the book) is still all about Bella and Edward relationship and their strong love for each other. In my opinion, this movie was the best romance of 2009 :)
