What are the Golden Schmoes?

The official nominations for the 8th Annual JoBlo.com Movie Awards (aka the Golden Schmoes) have been compiled and the official voting will begin Thursday night at midnight EST (Feb. 13-19), so sharpen your fingernails and get ready to vote for your faves! The winners will be announced next Friday, February 20th, just two days before those darn "Oscar thingies" are handed out. Here are the films which received the most nominations and...surprise, surprise, THE DARK KNIGHT rules them all! (I believe the film received more nominations than any other film ever did on the Golden Schmoes, but I need to double-check and confirm that).

The Dark Knight (16 nominations)
The Wrestler (12 nominations)
Wall-E (10 nominations)
Iron Man (8 nominations)
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (8 nominations)
Cloverfield (7 nominations)

A handful of other cool flicks also received 6 nominations each including PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, IN BRUGES, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and TROPIC THUNDER, while FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL managed 5 noms including Mila Kunis for "Best T&A". Remember that each person can vote only once for the Golden Schmoes, but you needn't be a member of our site to do so. We will also be running our 9TH ANNUAL OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST this year (win an iPod!!), from Feb. 16-22, so stay tuned for that as well. See previous years' winners below:
