Bobby James Awards | Fan-Voted Categories: Voting Open Through Dec. 15!

It’s nearing the time of year when I release my nominees and selections for my “Best of 2015” lists. Over the past decade, these lists have become known as the Bobby James Awards.

"Hiccup" from DreamWorks' How To Train Your Dragon 2

A Media Comment: Animated Feature ≠ “Kid’s Movie”

Have you seen DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2 yet? If not, do so – it’s a fantastic animated feature that, in a roundabout way, is the basis for this post.  While I was surfing Facebook, I saw Moviepilot Animation’s article:  So Let’s Talk About How To Train Your Dragon’s Gay Character.  Upon completing the […]
