The 2011 Golden Schmoes nominees are announced!

02.10.2012

The official nominations for the 11th Annual JoBlo.com Movie Awards (aka the Golden Schmoes) have been compiled and the official voting will begin on Monday (February 13 - 23), so sharpen your fingernails and get ready to vote for your faves! The winners will be announced on Friday, February 24th, just two days before those darn "Oscar thingies" are handed out.

Even though the record for the most nominations ever had been broken over the past 2 years (INCEPTION had 19 nominations in 2010, which had beaten INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS' record from the previous year with 18 nominations, which had beaten THE DARK KNIGHT's original record of 16 nominations), no record was broken this year, but it feels like a much better balanced round of nominees this time around with DRIVE leading the pack with 15 nominations, followed by Fincher's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO with 11 noms and the surprising RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES with 11 nominations as well. Who would have thought that at the beginning of the year, eh?

The four other "big flicks" to receive major nominations were X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, SUPER 8, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 4 and BRIDESMAIDS. Other films with multiple nominations include WARRIOR (4), ATTACK OF THE BLOCK (4) and 50/50 (4). SUCKER PUNCH also received 4 nominations but two of those categories were not flattering nominations (Most Disappointing and Worst Movie of the Year).

Last year, INCEPTION led the nominations with 19 (although it ended up winning only X), with THE SOCIAL NETWORK and BLACK SWAN both with 12 nominations each.

MOST NOMINATIONS
Drive (15 nominations)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (11 nominations)
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (10 nominations)
X-Men: First Class (7 nominations)
Super 8 (7 nominations)
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (6 nominations)
Bridesmaids (6 nominations)
