I have to agree! Teen Choice, People's Choice and the MTV Movie Awards all have the same amount of credibility...which is none, really.

Unlike the other two awards, with Peoples' Choice, we (and other adults) have the chance to keep an awards show from "nuking the fridge."

If I had my way, here are the ones I'd like to see win. If I choose more than one, then don't worry.


Favorite Movie Actor
Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds
Hugh Jackman in X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Johnny Depp in Public Enemies
Robert Pattinson in Twilight
Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal 

Reason - The man knows how to use hammy acting tics and make them work for an outrageous and often humorous performance.

Favorite Movie Actress
Anne Hathaway in Bride Wars and Rachel Getting Married
Drew Barrymore in Whip It
Jennifer Aniston in Love Happens
Kristen Stewart in Twilight
Sandra Bullock in The Proposal

Reason - In all honesty, Whip It got the best reviews. But maybe I'd choose Anne Hathaway for only Rachel Getting Married.

Favorite Action Star
Christian Bale in Terminator Salvation
Gerard Butler in Gamer and Law Abiding Citizen
Hugh Jackman in X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Shia Labeouf in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Vin Diesel in Fast & Furious

Reason - Christian Bale, a good actor, got his balls busted for early this year's rant and his mediocre performance. Hugh Jackman was pretty much the only memorable performer in that X-Men movie, which upset alot of fans. Hope the sequel does better. Bryan Singer said he might come back to direct.

Favorite Comedic Star
Adam Sandler in Funny People
Ben Stiller in Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian
Jim Carrey in Yes Man
Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal
Vince Vaughn in Couples Retreat

Reason - Not a big fan of the film, but it was the only one out of the nominees that got the best reviews. Adam finally pulls a good performance for the mainstream audience.

Favorite Breakout Movie Actress
Anna Kendrick in Twilight
Emily Osment in Hannah Mountebank: The Movie
Ginnifer Goodwin in He's Just Not That Into You
Miley Cyrus in Hannah Mountebank: The Movie
Zoe Saldana in Star Trek

Reason - Trust me, memorable or not, Saldana was part of a major movie event of this summer. I dig Emily Osment, because she seems like a capable performer that could do bigger things, but Star Trek FTW.

Favorite Breakout Movie Actor
Chris Pine in Star Trek
Joseph Gordon-Levitt in (500) Days of Summer and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Sam Worthington in Terminator Salvation and Avatar
Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Zachary Quinto in Star Trek

Reason - Well, we all know Mr. Quinto from Heroes, so we'll let the man who played Captain Kirk get his shine on.

Favorite On-Screen Team
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock in The Proposal
Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner in Twilight and New Moon
Daniel Henney, Domanic Monaghan, Hugh Jackman, Liev Schrieber, Ryan Reynolds, and Will.i.am in X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Reason - Harry Potter pwns Twilight any day of the week, and it has better actors and actresses.

Favorite Independent Movie
(500) Days of Summer
District 9
Inglourious Basterds
Paranormal Activity
Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail

Reason - It's hard to choose. I could add (500) Days of Summer, and I have a raging crush for Zooey Deschanel, but I'm going with the sci-fi films.

Favorite Comedy Movie
17 Again
Bride Wars
The Hangover
He's Just Not That Into You
The Proposal

Reason - Do I really need to tell you?

Favorite Movie
The Hangover
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
The Proposal
Star Trek
Twilight

Reason - Either three of my choices are better than anumpteenmillionth romantic comedy, or some tween kid's spank dream.

You think you know, but you have no idea.

No we don't, because:

1. Anyone with internet access can cast votes -- including the same teens who vote on the MTV awards 

2. The same adults that elected Bush twice can vote

3. Only 5 of their awards are actually voted on by internet balloting

4. Somebody other than "the people" controls the nominating process.

5. As I noted earlier, there is no way of knowing whether the people casting votes are actually making informed decisions, or simply casting votes for their personal flavor of the month.

The People's Choice Awards are as big a joke as the MTV Awards, plain and simple.

1. Unfortunate and sad

2.

3. Really? Because I voted in many different categories

4. Actually, the people do have some say in the nominating process. I know this because I actually voted for what I thought should have been nominated. Still, it's like a shortlist of contenders, so you don't have complete control over the nominees, but there's still some  

5. I totally agree. I am not one of those people. I tend to not only NOT follow trends; I'm usually the one in the crowd that's against them


Even though I voted for this crap, I completely agree: The People's Choice Awards are as big a joke as the MTV Awards.

2012 left critics either amused, confused, or downright stupefied.  I don't know how audiences took it, but a lot of people saw it.  2012 reigned supreme with $65M this week.  A Christmas Carol hung on to second, The Men Who Stare at Goats finished third, and Precious charged into fourth.  Let's take a look at next week:

11/17 On DVD
Star Trek - The best action film of 2009 finally comes to DVD.  This should be the big favorite at the People's Choice Awards especially since there are more brains and more Twilight haters voting on these awards.

My Sister's Keeper - This is not real well-known among moviegoers, but it's worth a watch.

Bruno - This film is not as good as Sacha Baron Cohen's similar film Borat, but it's still good none-the-less.


RiffTrax: Star Trek - I'm not gonna go into this one.

11/20 In Theaters


Planet 51 - This film doesn't look as good as Up, Ponyo, CwaCoM, and Mr. Fox, but it might be worth a watch.

The Blind Side - One of the TV spots contained a review that called Sandra Bullock "a sure-fire Oscar contender".  I sure hope that critic wasn't serious!

The Twilight Saga: New Moon - As a film adaptation of part of a book series that is second on my list of the Worst Literature of the Decade (behind Going Rogue), this one's gonna stink.  The first film got 20 frivolous awards and hopefully for the sake of America's youth, the sequels will garner at least as many Razzie Awards.

Here's hoping the expansion of Precious will keep New Moon away from the top of the box office charts.  Until next time, so long everybody!

Since everyone is doing it (and I think we need to get away from the People's Choice Awards and back to an award that's just as "honorable" to receive) --  

My (Current) Razzie Nominating Ballot for Worst Director:


1. Stephen Sommers (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra)
2. Kevin Greutert (Saw VI)
3. Peter Billingsley (Couples Retreat)
4. Michael Bay (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen)
5. F. Gary Gray (Law Abiding Citizen)

This is who WILL win, sadly.

Favorite Movie Actor
Robert Pattinson in Twilight

Why? Because it's "Twilight", and it will sweep this award show like all the ones before it.

Favorite Movie Actress
Kristen Stewart in Twilight

Why? See above.

Favorite Action Star
Hugh Jackman in X-Men Origins: Wolverine

That one is right.

[/quote]Favorite Comedic Star
Jim Carrey in Yes Man
[/quote]

Why? Adam Sandler was just not that funny, and Ryan Reyonds is not famous enough compared to the others on that list.

Favorite Breakout Movie Actress
Anna Kendrick in Twilight

Why? One word: "Twilight".

Favorite Breakout Movie Actor
Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga: New Moon

The movie is not out yet, but he will win, because it's "Twilight".

Favorite On-Screen Team
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner in Twilight and New Moon

Why? You should know by now.

Favorite Independent Movie
Paranormal Activity

Why? Made for $15 grand, made over $100 million back. I think that's a favorite among the people.

Favorite Comedy Movie
The Hangover

Agreed.

Favorite Movie
Twilight

Why? Because tween girls will vote for it regardless if the awards are aimed at their age group or not.

In response to saturnwatcher's post about the People's Choice Awards:

1. Yep, and that will be the case with these awards, too.

2. Sad, but true.

3. Again, true.

4. Yet again, true.

5. And yes, true.

I really miss the good old days when the Oscars, Emmys, Tonys, and Grammys were the ONLY award shows around.

I think I'll shorten that list to something more reasonable (in other words, NOT re-listing EVERYTHING listed in the forums) and most likely to end up on our voting lists.

Twilight is not gonna win everything because Twilight does not represent the "People's Choice".  Thousands of adults are voting on this and they would pick more reasonable choices than Twilight.  So far, every single awards show that gave awards to Twilight (and therefore nuked the fridge) has been erased from my archives (because the results do not reflect reality).  This one will face the same fate if Twilight wins it all.  In order to restore order to the movie industry, all of Twilight's sequels must get Razzie Awards.  This will show everyone what a complete hoax the series is and the series's real place in movie history (worst of all time).

Twilight Moons The Audience is the obvious Worst of the Weak.  However, there is a question of whether there will be a bonus Worst of the Weak.  Bad Lieutenant: Port Of Call New Orleans I've Got to Stick More Words in This Movie Title features Nicholas Cage, Eva Mendes and Val Kilmer.  And, as it turns out, it's supposedly a sequel, in this case to a revered indie film, Abe Ferrara's Bad Lieutenant.  The inital 16 movie reviews on Rotten Tomatoes gives only one rotten review, though, and the age-restricted clip and trailer seems promising (personally, I gave up waiting to have prescriptions filled; I leave the prescription and come back the next day).  However, one of the reviewers is my favorite, Prairie Miller, and she liked it, which makes me suspicious about these early reviews.  If other critics continue to weigh in positive on this film, I suggest one of us may have to go out, watch this and report back.  It's a little hard to believe this film may actually be a good film.  By all accounts, it should be pure Razzie material.

Let's bring this discussion to a reasonable realm of reality. The Twilight series, much like the HSM series definitely isn't my cup of tea, but based on everything I've heard about the latest sequel, it not only isn't the worst movie of the year, it isn't the worst sequel and it probably doesn't even belong in the discussion. Not only do I not think that awarding Razzies to anything in the series to date will restore order to the movie industry, I think we could be compromising our integrity. At worst, this is a series that is profoundly mediocre and geared to a specific audience, but that doesn't make it necessarily make it bad. It just makes it something most of us aren't going to find very intersting or entertaining.

I hope you're joking. I'm almost tired of hearing your Twilight rant. The first film was NOT bad. Are you kidding me. The general audience seem to exaggerate so much. The critics seem more reasonable with their ratings, reaching a 54% on RT in the cream of the crops section! At least they don't give out 1/5, 0/4, 0.5/4 like a free cookie. Even the performances by the cast is pretty great.
