And then there was one. The final Charlie Awards category is to vote for the overall rating of the year. We actually had some films for a change, which is good, but not all of them were special, which is bad. Did you feel rewarded as a Natalie fan or let down?
My plan to have the Charlie Awards become an all year event is working out pretty well, I feel ;-P
Just 3 categories left, starting with Best Natalie News of 2016.

The Charlies switches to Best Drawing. There wasn’t a ton of Natalie drawings in 2016 (2015 was a bumper year) but there was still some fine work to fill out the category. Happy voting!

The Charlie Awards continues today with one of my favourite categories: Best Wallpaper. It’s always great to see those who contribute to the site (some for years and years) get their recognition. Take a closer look at the full wallpapers and then vote away!

The next category in the Charlie Awards is to see what upcoming Natalie film you are most anticipating. It’s never completely fair, since some films we know a lot about and some we know next to nothing, but hey – who said life is fair?

It’s time for the next category in the annual Charlie Awards. Today we’re looking at Natalie’s public appearances from 2016. Click the thumbs, reacquaint yourselves with the album (we’re voting for the appearance, not a single image) and then cast your vote!

The Jackie trailer landed this week so it’s time to check the pulse of Natalie fans. Was it everything you had hoped?
Jackie is the winner of our last poll, which pitted the film against Natalie’s pregnancy and general activity. It was a clear winner but all three options had their supporters.
We’re well overdue a new poll…hang on, I said that last time didn’t I? More polls! There are obviously a lot of potential topics but I’ve decided to go with the big picture.
As for the last poll, if you can cast your minds back that far, you guys are generally amped about her forthcoming HBO project. Although, one wonders if that is still on the cards with Natalie, given recent events…
It’s time for a new poll and Annihilation is my obsession at the moment so here is a timely poll about what exactly has YOU guys most amped about the currently shooting film.
Speaking of Annihilation polls, it went up against Thor 3 in the last poll and wow, was it ever close.
The last poll (see results below) showed that most Natalie fans are disappointed that Natalie seems unlikely to be part of Thor 3, at least in a significant way. Given that Thor 3 starts filming in June and Annihilation, the Alex Garland sci-fi flick, starts filming any week now, it is conceivable that Natalie could have only been in one of the films.
I’m not saying this is true but I wondered, if all the fans that are upset at Natalie not being in Thor 3 were told “it’s because of Annihilation”, would that change things? So below there is a simple poll – if you could only choose one, which film would you want Natalie to do?
As for those Thor 3 results, here they are.
Okay, it’s time to tie a ribbon around 2015 and say adios. You guys voted on a bunch of categories and here is the winner in each.
The most anticipated film of 2016 was Jackie but there was almost a shock win for Jane Got A Gun, which was in second place by only three votes. I suppose the fact that it was “in the news” at the time of the vote explains the bias.
Best public appearance was a lot more comfortable with Natalie’s Cannes look running away with it.
Best editorial photo was incredibly close with 6 votes separating the top 3 images. However, I personally think the right image won in the end.
Well that took long enough. Like the post production on a Malick film, the Charlie Awards has taken a leisurely stroll to completion. Today we have the final category for you to vote on – simply, rate the 2015 Natalie year in news. 5 is the best Natalie year you could imagine. 1 is the worst. And then everything in between.

The Charlie Awards continue with the Best News of the Year. The film announcements probably could have all been included but that wouldn’t have left much room for anything else. In any case, what stood out as the best Natalie news of 2015?

The Charlie Awards moves onto the Best Drawing category. While we didn’t have as many entries as the previous year, I still think we were able to narrow it down to five very strong Natalie drawings.
