1990 – Favorite Movie – Goodfellas – Best Gangster Movie Ever

1991 – Favorite Sitcom – Seinfeld – although it debuted in 1990, I didn’t start watching it until season 2.

1992 – Favorite Album and Album Title – 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of . . . by Arrested Development – Song:  Tennessee, Mr. Wendal, People Everyday.  Favorite Lyric:   “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he’ll eat forever.”

1993 – Favorite Reality Show – The Real World Los Angeles – MTV was the only channel that was doing reality shows and The Real World was the original.  This season featured Tami, David, Beth, Jon, Aaron, Dominic, Irene, Glenn, Beth.  It was more then 7 because David got kicked off by his roommates for inappropriate behavior and Irene got married.  This show has come a long way.

1994 – Favorite TV Drama – My So Called Life – The whole series the cast would refer to other characters by their full name:  Angela Chase, Rayanne Graff, Jordan Catalano, Rickie Vasquez, Brian Krakow (I did that from memory.) It was a great show despite being cancelled after the first season.

1995 – Favorite Movie Character Name – Keyser Soze from The Usual Suspects

1996 – Favorite Concert – The Fugees – Tallahassee, Florida

1997 – Favorite year for Movies – Titanic, Good Will Hunting, As Good as it Gets, Starship Troopers, Grosse Pointe Blank, The Devils Advocate, Boogie Nights, G.I. Jane, L.A. Confidential, Donnie Brasco (“For get about it”), Deconstructing Harry, Amistad, Face/Off, Contact, Affliction, Eve’s Bayou, Gattaca – Now, I am sure you could do this with any year, but truly some great movies came out this year along with a few of my all time favorite; Titanic, Good Will Hunting and Face/Off.

1998 – My favorite Book – Bag of Bones by Stephen King – one of his best.

1999 – Favorite Acting pair – Edward Norton and Brad Pitt in Fight Club

  1. Goodfellas almost made my list as well. Had to bump it in favor of getting at least _one_ book on my list, though. Certainly the best film of that year…and most years.

    1. Hi Budd, I think Starship Troopers doesn’t get the love it deserves. I mean, a whole movie presented as a recruitment film. Brilliant. Those huge bugs were terrifying.

  2. You’re right, My So-Called Life referred to characters by full name all the time! My high school friend and i still joke about OhmygodJordanCatalano! haha. I watched The Real World all through the 90s. I think the first season in Vegas really changed it to the trashier version it is today. i caught a season recently that was decent, I forget which city. Then all the reviews I read online was it was the worst most boring season ever. Go figure! I’ve pretty much bowed out of reality TV unless it involves talent: The Voice, Project Runway, etc.

  3. Hey, have a dollar. In fact no, brother man, here have 2.. Mr Wendal, love this song.
    My So Called Life – oh, Jordan Catelano. He was one of my first TV crushes.

  4. I’ve read a lot of King, but I somehow missed Bag of Bones.

    I haven’t seen all the movies you listed, but the ones I recognize were awesome. 1997 was a good year for film.
