Fourth Annual Snarky Awards

Either I'm getting soft in my old age or I've finally learned how to pick a decent movie because it was almost difficult to come up with enough nominees to fill the categories this year. I actually couldn't even come up with a "worst movie of the year" category, which is sort of shocking, considering my keen ability to hate so much. It's been a surprisingly mediocre year.




But thanks to a wonderful suggestion from a reader, I do have a new category! Scroll through to find it at the bottom.

The Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark Award 


for the least believable casting choice for a character

Charlize Theron, Kubo and the Two Strings



THE KATHERINE HEIGL AWARD 


for the actor who attempted to single-handedly ruin a movie 

Emma Thompson, Beauty and the Beast




THE MARY-KATE AND ASHLEY OLSEN STRAIGHT-TO-DVD AWARD 


for the worst movie you've never heard of

Skiptrace






THE NAPOLEON DYNAMITE AWARD 


for the worst movie that other people inexplicably loved

Hacksaw Ridge



As a footnote, I want to add that Seth Rogan in Sausage Party was a VERY close second for the Katherine Heigl Award, but ultimately I decided against giving it to him because the movie had a number of other glaring flaws, while Beauty and the Beast was really, really brought down by Thompson's accent.
