  1. This was a great poll. I voted in it and am glad to see some of my picks actually won! Awesome. I loved Trading Christmas - so I was glad to see that win for favorite movie and Faith Ford won, too! That's great. I enjoyed a lot of these movies and I hope they will do more like them. Thanks for a great site and for always keeping us updated on TV news.

  2. Great poll. My boys loved A Mile in his Shoes - glad to see Dean and Luke won. Congrats to them. Great Movie and Great Actors!

    I was hoping that Beyond the Blackboard would win something - it was such a beautiful movie. I am so glad it was nominated.

  3. I'm glad to see Dean Cain won, too! He is such a great actor in everything he does. I can't wait to see him in Operation Cupcake.

    Your site is my favorite. Thanks for all the updates - I'm a faithful follower.

  4. I absolutley loved Trading Christmas. I wish whoever is in charge of making these movies, realized how great Debbie Macomber's writing is and make more of her movies. She has a ton of Christmas books, plus others and they would make a fortune if they turned it into movies.

    If any of you are Debbie Macomber fans, I run an online book club where we read her books together. Right now we are in the middle of her Cedar Cove series. Click on my name...the link is on my blog.

    Anyways...I love this blog. I get excited every time I see it in my inbox :-)
