Read before voting - FAQ / Questions / Etc...


FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):

WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE "GOLDEN SCHMOES"?
The Golden Schmoes is the name that we've chosen for our annual JoBlo Movie Awards, in which you, that's every movie fan who visits our site, votes for the movies which they believe were the best/favorite of the year. It ain't the Oscars, folks...it's REAL FUCKIN' MOVIE FANS choosing the flicks!!

Click here to see all of our previous years' WINNERS and NOMINEES.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
It works in two parts. Part 1 is where you all vote for which films you believe should be nominated for each category (max 5 noms each). This part usually lasts around 10 days, after which we will tabulate the votes and decide on the OFFICIAL TOP 5 NOMINATIONS for each category of the actual awards.

Part 2 is where you all vote from the final list of nominees for your favorite of the bunch. This usually lasts around 10 days as well, after which we'd officially announce this year's big winners! (the second part usually takes place around the second/third week of February)

CAN ANYONE PARTICIPATE?
As long as you're registered on our site (simple sign-up here), in fine standing with our RULES AND GUIDELINES and love movies...you can vote for the nominations (i.e. part 1). Anyone can vote for the final winners (i.e. part 2).

HOW MANY NOMINATIONS CAN WE MAKE PER CATEGORY?
Everyone can choose up to 5 NOMINATIONS per category, but you don't have to choose 5 if you don't have that many. In other words, if you can only think of two BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESSES of the year, just put those two down as your nominees.

WHAT DO I DO IF I WANT TO NOMINATE AN ACTOR/DIRECTOR WHO WAS IN MORE THAN 1 FILM IN 2012?
Please vote for the actor/actress/director AND the specific film that you want when you vote. In other words, if you're gonna vote for Anne Hathaway, make sure you specify that you're voting for her role in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and LES MISERABLES separately, for example. If each one gets enough votes, she would be nominated TWICE in the same category. Same for all others as such.

CAN I VOTE FOR MOVIES WHICH I HAVEN'T SEEN?
Well, there's no actual way for us to check this but we would seriously ask EVERYONE to vote ONLY for those movies which you have seen!! Please...let's try and make our awards as successful as in previous years and don't "stuff the ballots" with a bunch of votes for one particular movie which you adored, even though it doesn't make sense for it to be a top nominee in certain categories.

CAN I VOTE MORE THAN ONCE?
No, but you can EDIT your nominees before the end of the nominations period if you happen to change your mind during those 10 days.

WHAT'S TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM RE-REGISTERING UNDER OTHER NAMES AND CHEATING THAT WAY?
We have ways to find this out and if we find that someone is "fixing" the nominations process, we will disqualify their votes and ban them from the board. We are doing this for fun and because we seriously want to find out what the REAL MOVIE FANS (the schmoes!!!!!) love!! Rigging it for your own good, ain't what it's about. Furthermore, we will be using the final results of the nominations process as a "guide" to pick the finalists...not necessarily as the final word.

HOW COME THERE'S NO CATEGORY FOR {insert missing category here}?
The categories we've chosen have been working for us since 2001, so for now, we're going to stick with them. Keep your category in mind for next year's awards though...you never know.

FROM WHAT LIST OF MOVIES CAN WE PICK?
These are the awards for the North American release period of 2012. You should be able to find a pretty exhaustive list of all films released in 2012....RIGHT HERE.

ARE THE TRAILERS & DVD CATEGORIES ALSO FOR 2012 RELEASES ONLY?
Yes. Make sure that any DVDs or TRAILER that you nominate was released in 2012. In other words, you can't nominate the trailer for MAN OF STEEL because it's coming out in 2013.

WHAT DOES 'BEST MUSIC' IN A MOVIE MEAN?
It can mean either the soundtrack or the score of a film.

WHAT DOES 'BEST T&A' MEAN?
T&A stands for tits & ass but what this category is really for is basically the sexiest man or woman in a movie over the past year. The person doesn't have to have shown their tits or ass in a movie, but as long as they were sexi-licious, you can nominate them.

ANY SUGGESTIONS, JOBLO?
Yes, wait to vote. I would seriously suggest that you try and see as many of the movies as possible, so that you can make your picks as precise as you can (I know I am). Editing/changing your picks every other day probably isn't the best way to go about this.

WHAT IF I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION?
You can either post it in this thread and we, the moderators and I, will try and answer it (or email us).

Now let's see what THE REAL MOVIE FANS THINK!!!

its a shame the t&a category isnt split up between sexiest male/sexiest female. its seems because its called t&a, no one ever votes for all the hot men. and being that there has been an increase of those of us who drool over hot guys (us straight women, and gay men, or straight men with man-crushes) on joblo, that might be something to consider.

Yeah I wish they would split it too... because MALE ACTORS dont have a chance to win... It's always the FEMALE ACTORS who wins... I wish they can split it up.

and I wish they add "FAVORITE FOREIGN-LANGUAGE FILM" too. :3

The FAQ clearly states that both males and females can be nominated in the category. 'T&A' is just a nickname for the award. I don't think a separate award is really warranted.

It won't let me vote. Anytime it asks to log in, I do and proceed but it just the same step over and over.

Can you guys try to CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE and try again? Let us know if that works! Thanks.

It's not letting me vote at all. I have tried it on Chrome, Firefox, and IE. It just keeps telling me my password and username is wrong. I've cleared everything and it just keeps saying the same thing.

Please help!

What VERSION of Firefox are you guys using? Seems to be working for everyone else, so we're trying to understand why it's not working for ya'll. Thanks.

Isn't working for me either, on Firefox (version 16.0.2) or Safari (v 5.0.6). I enter my username and password, hit submit, a "new page" loads right back to where I was with the username and password field reset and without me logged in. It doesn't say anywhere that my username and password are wrong (they're not) but it's behaving that way I guess. There's never any place for me to submit my entries coming up. Clearing my browser cache didn't help.

It says voting is open until Monday, February 4th at midnight which either happened last night or will happen tonight depending on how you look at it. Is it possible voting is already closed?

That's very weird. I had a similar issue originally, but when I cleared my browser cache, it worked! Unfortunately the voting ended Monday night at midnight, but we receive more entries than ever, so we'll be fine in terms of finding the TOP 5 for each category. Thankfully the next part of the GOLDEN SCHMOES does not require a login...

I'm confused. We're already in the voting stage??

Nevermind. I forgot that we no longer nominate on the forums. Doh!

Wow. Apparently I completely missed the nomination window. Didn't see a single announcement. Looks like I wouldn't have been able to get into the site anyway.

It's totally unclear to me how, when and where we are supposed to vote.

Yeah, I was waiting for that myself and missed the boat. WTF?

In the voting process is it supposed to come up with your list of picks after you voted for them, so you know taht it has been counted? because mine is not coming up with anything at the end.

It also randomly wipes how many votes I have left when I get to around six, and says I have 28 and then I have to vote for them again.

Maybe I'll wait until later to see if these bugs have been fixed.

I have to say I'm very disappointed with these nominations. I had to vote for "The Avengers" 15 times while I don't even like that film, but the others were even worse.

Why isn't there an option to skip a nomination? I had to vote for several nominees I haven't seen/used.
