Announcing the 2012 FMR MAJOR Awards

Announcing the

Hey everyone, what’s up.

This post is to inform everyone of my plans for the next couple of weeks here. Beginning Monday, 1/7 and running through Sunday 1/20, I’ll be running the second annual FMR MAJOR Awards, where I break down the best and worst in movies for the year that was 2012.

Last year at this time, I considered it… let’s say… a bit of a gamble to really play up my year-end awards like this. Instead of one simple post announcing my top ten for the year, I would do an entire week building things up by announcing the nominees – in numerous categories – and then another entire week announcing the winners. Two posts a day. Regular content would be put on hold. I honestly thought that there was good chance that people would reject it.

They didn’t.

The MAJOR Awards were undeniably one of the highlights of my first year of blogging. Not only did everyone respond enthusiastically, a good number of new visitors found their way here to check out what was going on. It wound up being a massive success.

So I’m really excited to hold them again this year. Hopefully everyone will embrace them as much as they did last year!

Starting next week, we’ll have a change of pace here for a little while. We’re off to a little later start in order to see if I can squeeze “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Impossible” in for consideration under the wire. Hopefully everyone will have a good time celebrating the best and kicking around the worst of 2012. It will also help to get us through the January doldrums… seeing as Hollywood chooses not to bless us with good movies unless schoolkids are on vacation. LOL

Hope to see everyone then!

  1. I just hope for your sake that you don’t have any more Bucky Larsons lurking around that you need to see. (Speaking of, did you see Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie? It’s right on that level. Just saying.)

    • No. No, I havent seen that one? Does that mean you’ve seen Bucky Larson? LOL. :o

      I played it MUCH smarter this time. Last year I skipped a lot of bad movies and then at year end I played catch up. This year I rationed them out better. I have my field all set, I believe. :D

      • Admittedly I have not seen Bucky Larson. I cannot, however, picture it being any worse. (And it was a 2012 release, although I think its theatrical run was very limited. I wouldn’t actually insist on you watching it though… I’m not that cruel. :D)

    • There’s a good 20% chance that it falls apart. Its too much, there’s too many movies people havent seen, especially the bad ones…

      But then again, there’s a sizeable chance people love it and it comes out really well LOL

    • Ok, THAT cracked me up. LOL :D

      Is four days early too early to wear our game faces? I’m just wondering, let’s make sure we do this right… I worry that my game face may get tired before Monday… just sayin’, I mean, I dont know…

  2. Sounds like you want to keep all of us busy. Multiple posts means multiple opportunities to crow or to bitch. Looking forward to doing both. Can worst film and worst animated film be the same? I have my suspicions about those two categories.

  3. Adam Sandler could take it with a live action and an animated feature. The animated feature was so lifeless as to fit in both categories.

  4. Sounds like fun, Fogs!

    What’s the over/under on Guy Pearce in either “Prometheus” or “Lockout”?
