It’s “Time to Vote Tuesday 133!”: The 3rd Annual RED WEB AWARDS

January 15, 2013

3rd Red Web AwardsIt is time <drumroll, please> for The 3rd ANNUAL RED WEB AWARDS!

Last Sunday, the Golden Globes aired on television! Several deserving nominees won the “pre-Oscar” award, and all the glitz and glamour of the evening made for a fun watch! (To see all of the winners, check out yesterday’s post HERE).les mis

Award season is always fun! But sometimes, certain films/directors/actors don’t get the recognition I feel they may deserve. (Leaving me feeling as impressed as Tommy Lee Jones was this past Sunday at the Golden Globes.)

So, since that is often the case, a few years ago I decided to host my own “Golden Globe Awards” of sorts, in which you get to help participate and choose the winners.

This prestigous award, entitled The RED WEB AWARD, takes over your regular “Time to Vote Tuesday” segment and gives way to pay homage to the dedication, cinematic success, inspiration, and amazement of the nominees. (In case you didn’t know, it’s called the “red web” because I’m a pretty big Spiderman fan.)

Each award ceremony to date has been a pretty big success (1st year, 2nd year) and I always look forward to the fun. (Last year Stan Lee was gracious enough to host the award-results ceremony! Check out his promo pic:stanlee

Wait ’til you see who will host THIS year’s Award-Results Ceremony (Here on Sunday, January 20th)! Don’t miss it.

Here’s How It Works:

A panel of 12 judges has been assembled. (Made up of 8 fantastic movie bloggers, 3 great friends/contributors of the site, and myself). Each judge submitted their nominees for the award categories that you will be voting on. Meet your panel of nominating judges that added their nominations for this year’s RED WEB AWARD categories:judges

All 12 of us nominated possible winners for 8 categories and we need your help to choose!

Below you will find 8 polls. Please do the following:

  1. Think carefully about the performances of the nominees per category.
  2. Vote for the TWO (2) nominees per poll that you think should win The RED WEB AWARD in its respective category.
  3. After voting, please..***pass this along to a friend via facebook, twitter, stumbleupon, wordpress, blogspot, text message, snail mail, pony express, passenger pigeon, etc. (There are “share” links at the bottom of this post).
  4. Leave a comment, if you wish, spreading your own propagandish reasons as to why you think a certain nominee should win.
  5. Keep checking back, the polls will be open until Saturday night. You can vote up until then. Results will post at the RED WEB AWARDS CEREMONY on Sunday, January 20!
  6. Didn’t see your favorite on the list? Use the comment section to list your Honorable Mentions!

(In the actual Golden Globes there are over 20 categories. I had to narrow it down as best as I could. While some categories I would love to have included, the 8 below were my final choices.)

-This year there is a special category entitled “The Silver Screen Surprise Award.” This award is for the film that most surprised you this year, either for being BAD or being GOOD. (most nominees are listed for being surprisingly good as according to your judge panel)

Are you ready? We need as many votes as possible!

So, BEHOLD, Without further ado, I present to you now this year’s 3rd Annual RED WEB AWARDS!

    I am disappointed, Cabin in the Woods didn’t make any of your lists…

      Cabin in the Woods is a good choice. I think it was in the running and was an alternate choice by one of the judges for “Worst Movie of 2012” (not my choice though), but in the end it didn’t make the final choice cut. Thanks for voting!

      Thank YOU for being a part! It will be interesting to see the results. I was surprised by some of the inclusions/exclusions. Now fans must vote from a different mix as it were. And all of you judges made it possible. (I think only about 5 of my personal noms made it in due to the great choices of everyone else!) 🙂 Thank you.

    Just cast my votes, only I didn’t pick any for the worst movie category, mine would be Lockout, Cosmopolis or Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning. I missed Paranorman in the best animated feature category.

    Hi, Terrence and company:

    Interesting polls and choices for categories.

    Basically, a wasted year for Tom Hardy. He’ll need to play some catch-up, quick.

      I didn’t see Hardy’s year as wasted. but I do hope he does continue to get greater roles. I did like him in TDKR
