And the 2013 Golden Schmoes winners are...!!

Feb. 28, 2014by: Paul Shirey

The results are in!

A nice mix of wins for The Golden Schmoes this year as no one film really dominated, which is always refreshing (unless a film earned the right to dominate, of course). Although GRAVITY had the most wins (6 total), it was THE WOLF OF WALL STREET that took "Favorite Movie of the Year." The only other films with more than one win were AMERICAN HUSTLE and PRISONERS. Speaking of PRISONERS, the Denis Villeneuve thriller won for both "Most Underrated Movie of the Year" and "Biggest Surprise of the Year," which I personally think are much deserved wins. Alfonso Cuaron snaked the "Best Director" award, which I also think is a hard-earned win.

Oscar favorite 12 YEARS A SLAVE had 9 nominations and didn't get a single win, making it the biggest surprise of this year's awards. DALLAS BUYERS CLUB also joined the snub club as it only took home one award, although for a terrific performance for "Best Supporting Actor" Jared Leto. Similarly, "Best Actor" went to Leonardo DiCaprio for THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, but Matthew McConaughey followed behind with a mere 20 vote gap! Cate Blanchett has been the shoe-in for Best Actress in BLUE JASMINE, but you guys felt that Sandra Bullock fared better, giving her the award. Jennifer Lawrence took "Best Supporting Actress" for her hilariously awesome role in AMERICAN HUSTLE, which was the only major award the David O. Russell pic scooped up, with minor awards for "Best Music" and "Most Overrated Movie" also in the queue.

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
11. Drive (2011) 6

Spike Jonze's HER took home "Best Screenplay of the Year," which was nice to see, as it hasn't gotten as much awards love as it deserves. FROZEN won "Best Animated Movie", but that's no surprise considering the competition. "Best Horror Movie" went to THE CONJURING, which I think was the most logical choice. That one still gives me chills. One thing was made very clear this year and that was that you guys love you some Margot Robbie. THE WOLF OF WALL STREET star took "Breakthrough Role of the Year" and "Best T&A." I mean, look at this lovely lady...

"Worst Movie of the Year" went to MOVIE 43. Not a big surprise, although AFTER EARTH was close on its heels in terms of votes. "Biggest Disappointment of the Year" was A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, which I would've pegged for worst movie of the year myself (yep, I'd rather watch MOVIE 43). MAN OF STEEL took "Best Trailer" while THE WOLVERINE took home "Best Poster" and I couldn't agree more with those wins. The "Best Action Scene" went to GRAVITY's ridiculously insane destruction of the space station, while "Most Memorable Scene" went to THE WOLF OF WALL STREET's quaaludes scene. Lastly, the "Best Line of the Year" went to the JoBlo.com favorite THE WORLD'S END with "What the f*ck does WTF mean?"

Thanks to everyone who took part in the nomination phase and to all who voted in this year's awards! Everything shakes out just as you guys dictate with your votes, so it's super cool to see what the real movie fans are thinking when it comes time to hand out awards to the movies we love (or hate).

Yawn...

Did I see a different cut of "American Hustle" than everybody else? Cause in the version I saw, Jennifer Lawrence had one of the most inconsistent Long Island accents I've ever heard in a film.
Stop praising that mediocre performance.
And how the hell did "Best Music" not go to "Inside Llewyn Davis" but instead to "American Hustle" for its cookie cutter 70's soundtrack?
Shame.

I don't wanna sound sanctimonious, but I'm glad that Jordan Belfort didn't win "Coolest Character".Tthat he was the runner-up actually gives some credence to all the detractors saying that The Wolf of Wall Street glorifies Belfort and all the nonsense he got up to. There were some moments where he came off as downright pathetic.

I voted for JORDAN... in the very first round. It's not about the most sympathetic character, but the one you just enjoyed watching in the movie. I liked analyzing JORDAN because he wasn't a good person but he wasn't exactly evil either.

American Hustle

Of course those who loved American Hustle are going to deny that the film is overrated. Those who are not as impressed won't share that opinion. With the universal acclaim and award consideration, as well as my own anticipation, I found myself more than just a little disappointed. I do find the term "overrated" subjective and usually used by those who simply want to rebel against the general consensus, but it can be used properly if followed by a well-constructed argument.

Of course those who loved American Hustle are going to deny that the film is overrated. Those who are not as impressed won't share that opinion. With the universal acclaim and award consideration, as well as my own anticipation, I found myself more than just a little disappointed. I do find the term "overrated" subjective and usually used by those who simply want to rebel against the general consensus, but it can be used properly if followed by a well-constructed argument.

So, while I respect the masses who disagree, I have a legitimate reason for my opinion. Most of it, of course, comes from my personal preferences. First, I find it hard to understand why this movie received best score, because the music was mostly non-existent, and at the very least forgettable. I was hoping that, with the era and style this movie represents, that music would be a prominent part of it, but there were long stretches without any score. Danny Elfman could have given this film a boost with his music. It was also the lack of music that made this story drag. I was expecting a fun comedy, but it lacked the energy that fit the style. It was more a collection of scenes than a coherent story, playing out as too episodic for my taste. I know that this was how David O. Russell intended it, but I was hoping for some thread to keep momentum (music or editing, for example). The last one I'll mention is the ending. One of my favorite genres is the con/heist genre, and my favorite part is the reveal at the end, featuring the twist of what was actually going on. Usually, it arrives in a way that creates a "aha" moment, matched with a sense of completion to everything that came before. It caps off the fun that preceded it with a rewarding finale. The ending to this movie just seemed to fizzle, and the reveal didn't seem very gratifying. It was almost an afterthought, and I felt nothing but the feeling of being letdown.

Now, maybe David O. Russell deserves credit for trying something different, but his movie was being compared to Scorsese and Tarantino, which made this seem to lack an original voice. Maybe the music and editing would not be what the film needed, but it lacked a cohesive identity in my opinion. The best I can say about it was the actors were all terrific, and there was some style in the design. I just felt it fell short of its full potential. I didn't hate it, but I like to leave a theatre with some feeling, and I came out of it with nothing. Maybe if I see it again, with expectations lowered, I may appreciate it for what it is, but it's not what the general audience hails it as, at least for me.

Therefore, in my (long) opinion, it's overrated.

Glad Sandra won. The combination of the awesome filming and her intense performance made me feel as claustrophobic as she probably was being inside that box. Palms were sweating!

I didn't expect WOLF to win. I loved it, but it probably won't become a classic. I mean, it's too similar to GOODFELLAS, CASINO and even RAGING BULL. And AMERICAN HUSTLE is a tribute to those films. GRAVITY, HER (I'll go see it tonight) and 12 YEARS will definitely become classics. They're generation defining.

I'm glad MOVIE 43 won Worst Movie. Not just because I hated it, but because it most likely won't win the Razzie.

The fact that Margot Robbie won Best Breakthrough AND Best T&A might

The fact that Margot Robbie won Best Breakthrough AND Best T&A might make you think she won for being hot. But her performance was really good. Not as good as Barkhad Abdi, though.

I really thought ELYSIUM would win Biggest Dissapointment. I know it was good while DIE HARD 5 sucked, but did anyone think it was going to be good?

American Hustle is OVERRATED!

Thank you to everyone who voted this because it is sooooooooo true!
It should be titled, "Random Zoom In On Characters" or "Side Boob: The Movie"!

How did Lupita N'yongo NOT win Breakthrough Performance of the year? That's preposterous. And maybe I'm just biased because Cate Blanchett is my all-time favorite, but I think she hands down deserves Best Actress. In fact, I find I disagree with most of the picks this year, which has never happened with the Golden Schmoes. Oh, well. Can't win them all!

The only reason why Margot Robbie won was because she showed nudity (not complaining), but also so did Lupita N'yongo. Both were terrific in their respected films and roles, but Lupita easily gave the better performance out of the two.

Lupita is equally or more gorgeous, and gave a better performance. I REALLY liked Margot Robbie in Wolf of Wall Street, but no way does she deserve more credit that N'yongo. I just don't get why so many people on here are such pigs that playing a highly sexualized role is automatically the best thing ever.

There are only two things that I'm surprised about. 1.) Bullock... really? Did the majority of schmoes NOT see Blue Jasmine? 2.) American Hustle being the "most overrated". I was shocked to even see that it was nominated in that category, never mind actually taking it. That's a major wtf moment in my mind. Otherwise... good picks.

100% agreed on Bullock. I love her and I love her performance in Gravity, but Cate Blanchett outclassed all the competition, as far as I'm concerned.

Agree with both of you. Bullock was amazing in Gravity, but Blanchett just completely owned in Blue Jasmine.

I wish the Best Actress nominations were always this great every year. Bullock, Blanchett, and Adams all deserve to win for their terrific performances this year.

Agree with Blanchett over Bullock.
but American Hustle is terribly overrated and not interesting enough for a 2 hour plus feature. It's boring at some many points, and it's trying so hard to be a Martin Scorsese, P.T. Anderson, Quentin Tarantino style film, with a lot of side boob shots.

American Hustle was not the most overrated film of the year. I don't understand where all the criticism is coming from with that one. I thought it was one of the best films of the year and that the story was good, performances were great, music was terrific, and Russell shot the time period of the film beautifully.

Happy to see Prisoners and Her get some love on this site and I guess it was kind of obvious Wolf of Wall Street would win Best Film, but I have to disagree about Best Actor. I

Yeah. Totally agree. American Hustle was my favorite film of the year and I don't understand what's so overrated about it and especially why people think it's the most overrated film of the year compared to others. I can see why the other films nominated could be considered overrated, but I don't understand why people think American Hustle is.

Like you said, it was probably the most fun I had watching a film last year. Loved everything about it. The story, characters, the music, and the time

I agree as well. I loved American Hustle. Why so "overrated"? Acting was great, funnier than I expected, music great, etc. Dare I say I enjoyed it more than Wolf of Wall Street?

American Hustle is terribly overrated and not interesting enough for a 2 hour plus feature. Also, unlike The Sting or Ocean's Eleven, American Hustle never explains the setup! You hear Cooper talk about getting 4 politicans and then before you know it Bale is talking to him about the Sheik. How can you invest interest into a story where they don't guide you through the job Bale, Adams, and Cooper are going through?
It's boring at so many points. The dialogue sinks begins to drag because at

It's boring at so many points. The dialogue sinks begins to drag because at one point you just don't care what they're talking about. Example the dinner scene with Bale, Lawrence, Renner and his wife, the dialogue is not the least bit interesting or funny. It's trying so hard to be a Martin Scorsese, P.T. Anderson, Quentin Tarantino style film, with a lot of side boob shots.
Also, American Hustle has been labeled as the "audience favorite". How? I went to a sold out show and was one of the only people making any kind of chuckling sound during the movie, and I still found it to be a great mess with much disappointment.

Love or hate it film. Crazy thing is you don't have to love it or hate it to say it's overrated. I did not hate American Hustle and I even enjoy a couple of scenes, but this does not means I automatically liked it. It's overrated due to it's, Oscar praise, awards it's won, critic's praise, and 90 something % rating on rottentomatoes (many of which are mildly likable reviews). It's a overrated:)
