And the 2014 Golden Schmoes winners are...!!

02.20.2015

The results are in!

The Schmoes have spoken and the winners of the 2014 Golden Schmoes are here! The overwhelming favorite of 2014 was definitely GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, which had 9 total wins, including Favorite Movie of the Year. The other favorite amongst you guys was BIRDMAN, which took 3 total wins, but each in significant categories, including Best Director for Alejandro González Iñárritu, Best Actor for Michael Keaton, and Best Supporting Actress for Emma Stone. A pretty good haul for the fan-favorite. The other multi-winner films were GONE GIRL and X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST, each winning 2 categories. GONE GIRL took home Best Actress for Rosamund Pike (much deserved, in my opinion) and Best Screenplay, while you guys felt that the Quicksilver sequence in X:MEN: DOFP was both the Most Memorable and Best Action Scene in a Movie.

The notable lack of wins fall to BOYHOOD, which has been cleaning up everywhere else, but not here. The film with the MOST amount of votes went to THE LEGO MOVIE, which won Best Animated Film. Not surprised with that one, as its Oscar snub has fueled many to rally to its defense and righteously so. There weren't many surprises, per se, but some satisfactory wins in my book, including JOHN WICK for Biggest Surprise and EDGE OF TOMORROW for Most Underrated, both of which earned those spots heartily. And, of course, Eva Green took home Best T&A, which she certainly went all out for in 2014. My only surprise was that she won for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL for over 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE, but I'm certainly not complaining.

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
4. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) 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
 

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's Chris Pratt took Breakthrough Performance for his role as Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) took Coolest Character, adding up the win tally for the Intergalactic Marvel pic. Favorite Celebrity went to Jennifer Lawrence and it wasn't even close. You guys really do love you some JLaw and I, for one, don't blame you. Guardians continued its clean up with Best DVD, Trailer, Poster, and, unsurprisingly, Music. Definitely one of the best soundtracks of the year, even if just a compilation of classic songs and a nice thematic score from Tyler Bates.

Biggest Disappointment of the Year went, naturally, to THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, the much-loathed follow up to Sony's recent franchise reboot. However, it's subsequent failure helped lead to Spidey being back in the Marvel world, so perhaps it's kind of a good win. Worst Movie of The Year went to TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION, which I couldn't agree more with. A bloated mess from start to finish that was more headache-incuding than anything, it is absolutely in the right spot here. You guys were very clear on Trippiest Movie of the Year, which went to UNDER THE SKIN, and Best Horror Movie of the Year, taken by THE BABADOOK. I'm also pretty happy to see THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL get some love, taking Best Comedy of the Year. Good shit. Overall, I think this is a very good reflection of the pulse of our fans.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the nomination phase and to all who voted in this year's awards! In the end, it's YOU GUYS who decide everything in the Golden Schmoes, from nominations to voting, so this is all about your perspective. Personally, I'm proud to see the wins we have and can't dispute any of them, even if my pick didn't win. Let us know what you think of the results below (respectfully, please) and if you haven't done so already, be sure to enter our OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST right HERE!

X-Men wins best action scene, blasphemy! That should have belonged to the knife fight in The Raid 2. I love superhero films just like most people but we all know that Quicksilver sequence doesn't come close.

Why are people complaining about Guardians winning? The category is not Best Movie, it's Favourite Movie of the year. There's a big difference.

Guardians was a good movie and tons of fun, but not best of the year. I visit this site, but wasn't one of the ones who voted. I'm assuming those who did vote were in the 15-20 age group. Guardians seemed to appeal to slightly younger crowd. I think those who are a bit older feel that Winter Soldier and Days of Future Past were better films. But what do I know, Fury was probably my favorite film this year.

Meh

Not sure how Rocket got coolest character over John Wick, but glad JW got some recognition. American Sniper definitely wasn't the most overrated movie of the year, I can see Godzilla being the most overrated. I actually enjoyed them all actually, but it would've been my choice. Outside of that, I agree with most the picks. Whiplash was still the best movie I saw in 2014

I agree. Although Rocket was cool I voted John Wick because it was such a surprise bad ass character. American Sniper by no means is most overrated, why because of the surprise success? That movie was amazing. I voted Godzilla because the trailer had me sold from the get-go and then it fell utterly flat and made me miss man in suit all over again.

Bruce, I thought Rocket was great, but John Wick was just so eff'n cool man. As for the choice of AS, I don't know, it could be the success it could be people's political leanings which I'm not trying to start any political convo at all, but you never know. I enjoyed Godzilla but out of those choices it was the lesser movie for me.

WTF. GOTG was fun, but not amazing. Interstellar was amazing and should have won multiple categories. Nice to see Birdman with some wins though.

What?

Overall great selection of winners (I agree with most of the picks) but how did the Quicksilver sequence from X-Men beat out the Final Knife sequence in The Raid 2. THAT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME!!

I was literally going to post the same comment. I dont think enough people saw the Raid 2 for it to get enough votes. It sucks because that scene was by far one of the greatest action sequences of all time.

If its not comic book related 75% of the writers and fans months site don't care.

Also its a non American movie so add another 10% on to that 75 and you get 15% of thus website probably saw the raid two.

That is what I voted for. It was an epic fight I would of included the prison/mud scene also. I did vote for Quicksilver as most memorable with the choices provided.

Guardians of The Galaxy, more like duplicate of The Avengers only in space. It did make the cover of Yawn Magazine.

Guardians of The Galaxy, most overrated film of the year, without any doubt. I wanted to like this film, and I did enjoy some aspects of it but it boldly goes where all Marvel films are going- copy, paste, repeat. All the ape shit praise and hype made this film more of a letdown. Marvel Studios, "How can we rake in more cash from people when The Avengers is in production? Let's make a new half-assed group just like The Avengers only in space and have it look like JJ Abrams Star Trek, and we'll

Let's make a new half-assed group just like The Avengers only in space and have it look like JJ Abrams Star Trek, and we'll even cast Avatar's Zoe Saldana as a green alien this time! More weak villains, more focus on the soundtrack, and anything that would resemble the Avengers and Star Wars together only without the originality and creativity awe of either film!" BAM! You got Guardians of The Galaxy. 6 out of 10 at best.

Guardians was a fun movie but nothing special.

The raids final fight was better than any other scene this year.

Glad American sniper git most overrated, that film is trash.

BEST T&A OF THE YEAR should have been Scarlett Johansson in "Under the Skin" not Captain America: Winter Soldier.

I really liked Gone Girl but the screenplay was one of the weaker elements in my opinion. Actually I guess I thought there was a lot wrong with that movie, but was pretty captivated by the story. Just like the book, I endured through a lot of wtf, just flat out stupid behavior because I had to know how it would end. If the ridiculous, unnatural, and implausible things were all meant to be that way, then it was brilliant.

Obviously, I jdid not get Guardians of the Galaxy. I really wanted to like it, and there were some things I did like about it, but I just did not find myself being swept away with it like the joblo community. I'm not going to complain about the results b/c the voters have spoken. I just wish I could have been as excited as everyone else when watching GOTG.

Happy with the results, but American Sniper for Most Overrated?? That should have gone to Godzilla or Interstellar.

Personally after seeing the list of winners I'd say Guardians of the Galaxy is the most over rated. It was a fun movie but nothing groundbreaking. Winter Soldier and Days of Future Past were both way better as far as story and acting go.

I loved Godzilla but it certainly wasn't over rated as no one said it was the best film of the year. American Sniper is WAY overrated and that fake baby is unforgivable.

American Sniper deserves it, but Guardians of the Galaxy was the biggest overrated film of the year. Godzilla was an adaptation of an old cheesy monster flick where it use to be a guy in a lizard suit, how could you be so disappointed? Interstellar was true sci-fi! Guardians is a space opera! Interstellar is bold, original, and creative. Guardians is a rip off of The Avengers (same characters, same plot, same weak pawn villain, same clichés) and JJ Abrams Star Trek.

Well said Trav. BIGGGG bonus points in my book when in the film is original and ambitious....Birdman and Interstellar provided that this year, bold flicks

@Trav - because Godzilla was barely in it & the only interesting character was killed off in the first 20 minutes, not to mention it was flat out a borefest.

not really knowing her and all i have to go on based on media and movies, to me she just has this aura like she thinks she's really fucking cool. she's not that hugely talented, and only really pretty when slathered with makeup.

Very good winners!

Good to see the community voting here is way closer to my taste than any other awards this year! The two Gone Girl wins are satisfying and nice to see Interstellar get some love (even if it's only as runner-up).

Guess I have too see John Wick now ;)
