best of 2011: top entertainment picks

A word cloud of my most frequently used words in 2011 in Facebook status
updates, Tweets, emails and instant message conversations.

Welcome to Change the Word's Best of 2011, where I recap the best moments from the blog and entertainment community this year. Today, we cover my favorite moments in entertainment. Instead of creating a top 10 ranking, I picked one or two favorites in each category.

You will notice the lack of books on this list. Don't worry, my top 10 favorites reads of the year will appear tomorrow.

With that, I introduce my top entertainment picks 2011: 

•  Comedy: Bridesmaids

and Jane Eyre
