LAFCA Votes WALL-E Best Picture of the Year

After listening to IGNs Digigods podcast, hosted by two critics, Wade Major and Mark Keizer, they announced that after a day of voting with the LA Film Critics Association that their choice of picture of the year went to none other then admired animated film WALL-E. This is incredibly notable because animated films usually don't take the Best Picture category. The Runner-Up was The Dark Knight, a super hero movie, which once again usually doesn't take acclaim over "standard" films.

This is a sign that the Oscar for best picture may be one of these two films, but we'll have to wait a bit to find out about all that, but yeah, congrats to WALL-E and The Dark Knight, certainly two of my favorite movies of the year.

Also significant is the Best Actor category which went to Sean Penn for "Milk," which I still haven't seen...
