And the 2010 Golden Schmoes winners are...!!

02.25.2011

As in previous years, it was the film with the most nominations (INCEPTION with a record-setting 19) that ended up with the most wins at the Golden Schmoes this year, as Christopher Nolan's film managed to sweep most of the major awards, just like his previous film, THE DARK KNIGHT, did just two years ago (that film won 12 different categories at the time). INCEPTION managed to win in 9 categories this year including "Favorite Movie", "Best Director" (take that, Oscars!!), "Trippiest Movie", "Best Sci-Fi Movie", "Best Special Effects", "Favorite Movie Poster", "Best Trailer" and both "Best Action Sequence" and "Most Memorable Scene" of the year.

Nolan also becomes the 3rd director after Peter Jackson (2002, 2003) and Quentin Tarantino (2004, 2009) to win "Best Director" twice at the Golden Schmoes! Check out where INCEPTION stacks up against previous "big winners" of the Golden Schmoes below... (Note: Nolan has 3 of his films in the top 10...the schmoes love him!)

MOST WINS @ GOLDEN SCHMOES (All-Time):

1. The Dark Knight (2008) 12
2. Return of the King (2003) 10
3. Inception (2010) 9
4. The Two Towers (2002) 9
5. Sin City (2005) 7
6. Fellowship of the Ring (2001) 7
7. Inglourious Basterds (2009) 6
8. The Departed (2006) 6
9. Pirates of the Caribbean (2003) 6
10. Memento (2001) 6

The other two big winners this year were Edgar Wright's SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD, which won 4 different categories including one of my favorite awards for "Most Underrated Movie of the Year", as well as "Best Comedy", "Best Music" and "Biggest Surprise". KICK-ASS actually finished in 2nd place for both "Most Underrated" and "Biggest Surprise" right behind SCOTT PILGRIM, but it too managed to nab 4 different categories -- every single one featuring the very awesome Chloe Grace Moritz aka Hit-Girl -- including "Best Supporting Actress", "Breakthrough Performance of the Year", "Coolest Character" and "Best Line"!

Unfortunately for other films like TRON: LEGACY (7 nominations), THE SOCIAL NETWORK (12 nominations) and BLACK SWAN (12 nominations), the INCEPTION sweep provided them with few wins, as TRON: LEGACY ended up with 0 awards, although THE SOCIAL NETWORK managed 2 for "Best Screenplay" and "Best Actor", while BLACK SWAN also managed 2 for "Best Horror Movie" (yeah, you read that right) and "Best Actress" for Natalie Portman, who becomes the first actress to win twice in that category (her previous win was in 2006 for V FOR VENDETTA). Portman's actually won 3 Golden Schmoes so far, as she also won for "Best Supporting Actress" for CLOSER back in 2004. You can see the full list of this year's winners RIGHT HERE.

GENERAL NOTES: Mila Kunis was runner-up for both "Best Supporting Actress" and "Best T&A" (which she won in 2008 for FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL), while newcome Hailee Steinfeld was runner-up for both "Best Actress" and "Breakthrough Performance of the Year". Kelly Brooke won "Best T&A" in a landslide (go boobies!!), while Conan O'Brien became our first ever non-actor to finish in the running (he finished right behind James Franco as "Favorite Celebrity of the Year"). TOY STORY 3 also marked the 7th time in 10 years that a Pixar film won for "Best Animated Movie" and the 5th Pixar film to win it in a row. I also think it's the first time that the word "cunts" is included in our awards, but I'm sure it won't be the last (check the "Best Line" category for that doozy).

Thanks to everyone who participated again this year and who keep making our little awards ceremony more and more popular every year. And if you haven't done so already, be sure to enter our OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST right HERE! And stay tuned for our Oscar coverage, this coming Sunday, February 27th. See ya'll next year!

One question: Do the winners in each category get an actual trophy or is it just the honours? Would be cool to see a picture of a Golden Schmoe on a shelf next to an Oscar.

Enough of one movie sweeping everything!

Sorry folks, but I just hate how 1 movie seems to always get almost every single award. Especially when some of the awards given clearly were done better in other movies. Was "Inception" a great film, well yeah. But to win just about all of them just because that's what film they liked best, well that's just plain wrong. The Academy Awards is guilty of that too.

Inception, Kick-Ass, and The Social Network deserve the love shown them. They were some of the best pictures of the year.
Hopefully, 2011 can have more obscure films on the final ballot. However, nominations are likely to include mostly wide releases that everyone has seen.

Right on Golden Schmoes. While I might occasionally have some wacky opinions, joblo and it's fans are hands down the best internet movie circle/site. These awards are superior to the Golden Globes, The Oscars and the People Choice Awards. Keep up the great work everybody! I wish I had this award show to watch on Sunday instead.

Black Swan absolutely was the best horror movie to be released last year. It's one of the best examples of psychological horror that I've seen in a long time. Nice to see Scott Pilgrim and Kick-Ass getting some well-deserved recognition.

Chloe Moretz

I'm really glad she won so many awards. She was amazing in Kick Ass and so was her character.

Kind of disappointed with all the Inception love. And I'm really pissed off that How to Train Your Dragon didn't beat out Toy Story 3. I knew it had no shot, but it was the better film.

its so funny..

The people on this site are hilarious.. Whenever a great movie comes out, they gush over it and talk about how amazing it was. But when it makes bank at the box-office, suddenly its cool to hate on it.. It happens ALL the time. Just shut the fuck up lol seriously.

Yes, Inception is incredible. I don't care how much money it made.. It still rocks. However I don't think it deserved as many awards as it got.

And Scott Pilgrim for best music? What a joke. Fuck that movie.. Daft Punk had all

And btw, Black Swan (terrific flick) isn't a horror movie until about the last half-hour.. incase you guys didn't know....

Scott Pilgrim UNDERRATED??? It's so friggin' overrated at Joblo, AICN or any geek site, it's unbelievable. That's the funniest thing I've read in a while.

My commentary on these awards...


Best Picture: Inception Runner Up: The Social Network

Best Director: Inception Runner Up: The Social Network

Best Screenplay: Inception Runner Up: The Social Network

This list is getting a bit redundant, especially considering I hated both of those movies.

Most Overrated Movie: Twilight Runner: Up: Alice in Wonderland

I think the voters mistook box office for the word “overrated”. Inception deserved this title without question. I think when people are shouting praises

I think the voters mistook box office for the word “overrated”. Inception deserved this title without question. I think when people are shouting praises that a movie is the “best of the decade” IN THE FIRST YEAR OF THE DECADE, then that makes it a bit overrated.

Trippiest Movie of the Year: Inception

Yeah, where they dream and it looks EXACTLY like reality. How trippy!

Biggest Disappointment of the Year: Iron Man 2

I agree with this. I really liked Iron Man 1 and the sequel was awful in my opinion.

Best Actor: Jesse Eisenberg

I thought he was just playing an unlikable version of himself which wasn’t too difficult to do. Colin Firth gave a real performance and James Franco carried an entire movie by himself and skillfully evoked the emotion of being trapped by the boulder.

Best Actress: Natalie Portman Runner Up: Hailee Steinfeld

I like Natalie Portman but her character in Black Swan was a one-dimensional caricature. An extreme performance that calls attention to the fact that she’s acting. Jennifer Lawrence was PHENOMENAL in Winter’s Bone and deserved to win this. And Hailee Steinfeld shouldn’t be runner up because she’s just a caricature like Portman’s character.

Supporting Actor: Christian Bale Runner Up: Joseph Gordon Levitt

I thought he was great in The Fighter, although I didn’t like the actual movie. Joseph Gordon Levitt being runner up was ridiculous. He just stood around the entire movie in an attempt to look cool. Really, people, he was better than Geoffrey Rush in The King’s Speech?

Pretty good for the most part. Glad to see Inception and Nolan take their rightful place on top. The two I was most shocked about were Eisenberg getting Best Actor over Firth (Seriously? That's messed up.) and Moretz getting Breakthrough Performance over Steinfeld (Moretz was alright, but not in the same league as Steinfeld). Scott Pilgrim had some great music, but I was hoping that Tron: Legacy would take it as it's one of the best soundtracks from the last several years. As I've said before,

As I've said before, I have to completely disagree with the accolades Bale has been getting, but it was no surprise that he won (it should've gone to Rush). Other than those few problems, this was another decent year for the Golden Schmoes.

Music in Scott Pilgrim was "good", but it was mostly SONGS really. TRON: LEGACY's score was TRUE music!

Cannot say that I am pleased...

Hey I liked INCEPTION too, it deserved some of its category awards but THAT MANY? Really? C'mon, a little variety people.

Of course, Kelly Brook. Anyone that might've voted for someone other than her would need their head examined.

TRON: LEGACY should've gotten the music award and the ALIEN ANTHOLOGY should've been voted as best home video release. Other than that, pretty much agree with the rest.

Not even comparing the movies themselves, but just on the sheer DVD/Blu-ray presentation each. I mean, it's FOUR movies to 3 right there!

Ok now lets see how the oscars go.

The only thing im upset about is the horror section. I know Black Swan is a greak flick but not a true horror flick

All in all a very great year. I can't argue with any of the winners, all were well-deserved. Don't agree with Iron Man 2 as biggest disappointment, I actually enjoyed it. Great Job for Nolan & Co. for Inception. Is it too early to predict a clean sweep for Nolan in 2012 for Dark Knight Rises?
