Happy Holidays everybody and welcome to the 2nd Annual Best/Worst Awards of 2008 which is featured only at MovieHotties.com. As you may remember from late last year, myself and the JoBlo staff decided to honour all the stunning actresses, musicians, models or anyone else who made our tongues hit the floor and we did this by presenting them with awards to which there are tons of specific categories such as the "Hottie Lifetime Achievement" award, "Best Bare-Ass Shot" award and much more. At the same time, we also tarnish those who produced some of the worst films, media buzz or photos as part of our own little Razzie awards.
As you're all aware already, 2008 has been an unbelievable year for stunning hotties and because of this, I've gone through and created a ton of brand-new and sexy categories for all of you to enjoy. From Sexiest Poster to Sexiest Nerd, no stone will go unturned as we present our awards to those who deserve them the most. There will be a total of 3 parts to this year's awards presentation as we've got a lot of ground to cover so stay tuned over the next few days as we reveal our final winners.
Best Hottie Performance of the Year
Angelina Jolie as Christine Collins - "The Changeling"
This was a very difficult decision due to the fact that 2008 is absolutely loaded with stellar female performances (mostly in the later half of the year). However, I firmly believe that Angelina stands out amongst them as the most dramatic and heartbreaking performance of the year. Her transition into becoming the character of Christine Collins was absolutely flawless in my opinion and I have no doubt in my mind that having her own large family was very helpful in playing this role so well. Did I also mention the fact that she's smokin' hot? Way to go Angie, the Oscars await.
Runner-Up: Cate Blanchett as Daisy - "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"
Best Tits Shot of the Year
Marisa Tomei - "The Wrestler"
Many of you were disappointed last year when I didn't give this award to Marisa for her role in "Before The Devil Knows You're Dead" but this year, I'm going to make it up to you. Even though the film came out extremely late in the year, Marisa's topless scenes in Darren Aronofsky's "The Wrestler" border on extraordinary and she undoubtedly deserves the win. For more evidence on why I chose her, enjoy the NSFW clip above. BTW, if you haven't seen "Before the Devil Know's You're Dead", you're really missing out.
Runner-Up: Mischa Barton - "Closing The Ring"
There's no doubt at all that this is probably one of the best sex scenes in years, let alone just 2008. Never in my life have I watched a sex scene that made me belly-laugh so hard yet at the same time was a huge turn on thanks to both Mila and Kristen. Listening to both girls fake incredible orgasms while being half-naked was definitely the highlight of the year. Congrats girls and let's hope that round two occurs sometime in the near future.
Runner-Up: Heather Graham Nailed From Behind - "Adrift In Manhattan"
Hottest Premiere Photo of the Year
It seems that Mila and Kristen will both be taking another MovieHotties award today as they also produced one of the hottest premiere shots of 2008. Any man on Earth could come up with their own fantasy based on the photo above as I've thought up several on my own. This was a tough choice this year but the title clearly belongs to these two as they snuggle close together for warmth (or maybe something else).
Runner-Up: Olga Kurylenko - "Quantum of Solace" Rome Premiere
As you guys know already, there haven't been a hell of a lot of sexy girl-on-girl make-out's this year which is a galactic bummer. However, one specific scene did make our hearts pound which was the famous kiss between Scarlett & Penelope in the film development room from "Vicky Cristina Barcelona". Although it wasn't nearly as hot as it could have been (a close up with tongue is what the doctor ordered), just the thought of these two actresses exchanging saliva is enough to warrant the win. Congrats ladies!
Runner-Up: None really...this year was pretty much make-out free.
Most Desirable Woman of 2008
Over the past year, I've read hundreds of comments on performances, magazine shoots and movie premieres. Out of all this material, the one name that comes up the most and is never talked about in a negative way is the stunning Olga Kurylenko. Olga has been everywhere this year from her big lead role in "Quantum of Solace" to being featured in some of the biggest magazines in the world. Everytime she made an appearance, she looked better each time and we just drooled more and more for her. From what I've seen, read and heard, Olga is clearly the most desired woman of 2008 and we hope to see more of her really soon.
Runner-Up: Tina Fey
Hottest Candid Shot of the Year
Rosario Dawson (July 2008)
Arguably one of the hottest women on the face of this Earth, Rosario provided us with some amazing shots this year but none of them quite burned into our brains like the one above. Back in July, Ms. Dawson was spotted in this amazing bikini which showed off just how perfect her body is. I call attention to all stick-figure models out there who think that guys love that they're so skinny. Ladies, the photo you see above is what we find sexy so eat a hamburger for christ's sake and stop reading about what men want in these women's magazines because they couldn't be more wrong. Rosario...baby...I want you now more than ever and you deserve the win.
Runner-Up: Jenna Fischer on the set of "The Office"
As the realm of sexy female spies continues to grow at a tremendous rate in films, I saw it necessary to create a special award since us gents do love our ladies with gadgets, guns and sexy thighs to strap them against. 2008 was an especially good year for sexy spies and the one that tops them all for sure was Anne Hathaway. For her first big blockbuster summer movie, she couldn't have picked a better role as she kicked ass aplenty as Agent 99. Her "Catherine Zeta-Jones" style laser-room techniques were the biggest highlights and even though the film is a spoof of intelligence bureaus around the world, she came off as a very sexy and determined agent. Way to go Anne!
Runner-Up: Gemma Arterton as Strawberry Fields - "Quantum of Solace"
Hottie We Want To See More Of In 2009
I don't know how many of you will agree with us out there but I think Rhona is absolutely bonerific. After seeing her earlier this year in "Doomsday" as well as seeing some of her raunchy love scenes in the hit TV show, "Nip/Tuck", I'm dying to see more of this babe and soon. With "Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans" hitting theatres this month, let's hope that she can keep herself afloat so we can continue being mesmerized by her on the big-screen. Love you Rhona!
Runner-Up: Odette Yustman
Hottie Lifetime Achievement Award
Was there any doubt that this goddess of the Earth would receive this award sooner or later? Ever since making her acting debut in 1988, Salma has always been in the back of our minds. When we're shopping for groceries and we see a pack of delicious tender chicken breasts, we always think of Salma (at least I do anyway). I firmly believe that global warming may in fact have been caused by every guy beginning to heat up as soon as we see her (not too mention the amount of tissue paper that has gone unrecycled). The "Hottie Lifetime Achievement Award" was created because of actresses like Salma so on behalf of JoBlo.com and MovieHotties.com, I'd like to thank her for over 20 years of unchallenged hotness and let us hope that she never fades away.
Runner-Up: Heather Graham
SEE YOU ALL AGAIN NEXT YEAR!
