The best movie of the year is also the best movie ever to be based in my city of residence, Johannesburg. The movie also has best visuals, as its battle suit is the best visual effects artefact. In addition, it's also the most original movie, which helps it feel super-fresh. The movie is named District 9.
The best male performance is that of Christoph Waltz as Nazi officer in Inglourious Basterds. He plays a very fearsome Nazi officer that is so damn easy to hate.
