The 2009 Golden Schmoes nominees are announced!

02.19.2010

The official nominations for the 9th Annual JoBlo.com Movie Awards (aka the Golden Schmoes) have been compiled and the official voting will begin on Monday (February 22 - March 4), so sharpen your fingernails and get ready to vote for your faves! The winners will be announced on Friday, March 5th, just two days before those darn "Oscar thingies" are handed out (which are getting later and later every year, it seems).

Directly below are the films which received the most nominations. I was personally surprised to see the top film with more nominations than any other film in the history of the Golden Schmoes (the previous record-holder was THE DARK KNIGHT with 16 nominations). The new record-holder is now INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS! (yeah, I thought it would be AVATAR as well). Four other films fared really well including WATCHMEN (another surprise for me), DISTRICT 9, STAR TREK, AVATAR (there it is!) and ZOMBIELAND.

MOST NOMINATIONS
Inglourious Basterds (18 nominations)
Watchmen (13 nominations)
District 9 (11 nominations)
Star Trek (9 nominations)
Avatar (9 nominations)
Zombieland (7 nominations)

Other films with a handful of nominations include THE HANGOVER (6), UP (5), THE HURT LOCKER (5), 500 DAYS OF SUMMER (5) and MOON (5).

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 10TH ANNUAL OSCAR PREDICTION CONTEST this year, so stay tuned for that as well. See previous years' GOLDEN SCHMOES winners below, along with this year's crop of nominations per category. Thanks for participating!!
