The 2010 Golden Schmoes nominees are announced!

02.11.2011
UPDATE: Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright just wrote in to say: "Very nice to be in the running. Glad those of you who voted had as much as a blast watching it as we did making it. Thanks to all you crazy schmoes out there!"

The official nominations for the 10th Annual JoBlo.com Movie Awards (aka the Golden Schmoes) have been compiled and the official voting will begin on Monday (February 14 - 24), so sharpen your fingernails and get ready to vote for your faves! The winners will be announced on Friday, February 25th, just two days before those darn "Oscar thingies" are handed out.

Directly below are the films which received the most nominations. Seems like every year another record is broken in terms of the most nominations of all-time (last year's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS had 18 nominations which beat out the previous record-holder THE DARK KNIGHT, which had 16 nominations) and this year it was Nolan who was back again with INCEPTION, which led the pack with 19 nominations overall (and that's without DiCaprio as a Best Actor nom -- he did get the nom, but for SHUTTER ISLAND instead).

The three other "big flicks" to receive major nominations were THE SOCIAL NETWORK, BLACK SWAN and SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD! That's right, despite the latter film's lack of box-office success, JoBlo.com fans loved that shtuff and voted the shit out of it. KICK-ASS and TRON: LEGACY also racked up 8 and 7 nominations respectively. Other films with a handful of nominations include TRUE GRIT (6), TOY STORY 3 (5) and EASY A (4).

MOST NOMINATIONS
Inception (19 nominations)
The Social Network (12 nominations)
Black Swan (12 nominations)
Scott Pilgrim vs the World (11 nominations)
Kick-Ass (8 nominations)
Tron: Legacy (7 nominations)
