Hoped Dredd would win something..

Posted by fables87

Sweet!

Posted by brandonbonito

@inferiorego: Dredd I actually enjoyed, but when you go against those 2 powerhouses it is kind of hard to get a win...

Posted by Lvenger

Ha take that TDKR! Though best script is a bit generous given the gaping plot holes in that film. And no Mark Ruffalo love for his portrayal of Bruce Banner? Ah well The Avengers won a fair few categories so that's good.

Dark Knight Rises won best script? Just how drunk is the average comic vine user.....

Unfortunately not.  Can't say this surprises me, but I was pleased to see that Urban and Stone did get a fair amount of votes.

Maybe people voted for it because the way too long and boring story helped them get more sleep?

Posted by Mucklefluga

Wow, Avengers got over 50% in best movie, i still love you TDKR!

Man of Steel to win everything next year!

And 39.9% of comicvine voters shut off their ability to notice plot holes and overwrought dialogue in order to make sucking Chris Nolan's C*** a more pleasant experience. At least Avengers sweeped the awards for almost everything else.

I'm open to suggestions for new categories. I definitely have a few in mind for 2013's awards, but I'd love to get your input/feedback as well.  Feel free to post them here, PM them to me, or reach out via Twitter.

How about Worst Movie? The "Surprised It Didn't Suck" Award? Best Music?

I had those in mind already.  Thanks, though! Feel free to keep 'em coming.

wow no love for Dredd. This is just sad.

You can tell a lot of people around here didn't see Dredd. Or else it would have won some of these. Its a shamereally.

Was it any good? I'm not a huge Dredd fan and I've only seen the appalling Stalone Dredd film. Was this any better? And it was most likely overlooked by other superhero or blockbuster films out at the same time.

Yes, it was great! Don't let the horrible Stallone Dredd movie detour you from seeing this. Unfortunately it tanked at the box office (only making around 35 million). If youre not a fan of the comics I still think people can enjoy the movie.

I enjoyed Dredd, I just didn't enjoy it as much as the Avengers/The Dark Knight Rises.

See, for me it was DKR>Dredd>Avengers. Just personal preference.

ahahahaha TDKR winning Best Script what in the hell is wrong with you people

Avengers was pretty good, but Dredd was the best comic movie of the year. DEAL WITH IT.

Pretty much nobody saw Dredd in general. It was a huge flop, which is really unfortunate. People still remembered how terrible the Stallone one was, so they didn't want to see this one. What a buncha maroons.

Posted by MrMazz

@inferiorego: Dredd is an under loved film but ASM was just unnecessary imo. The origin story was unnecessary.

Posted by pspin

Haven't seen Dredd yet, but everything else was great. Where was Ghost Rider though? I know it was bad but it wasn't even an option, that is harsh.

I am almost surprised that people are taking this as seriously as they are.

TDKR haters LOL I didn't know a person could be war with a film. So, how was it working on the set of the Avengers? I'm sure this fanvote totally validates your opinions.

It was a good movie but Dread had no Hype and didn't feel like this epic thing. Which to be honest is what I thought partly made it good. 
ASM was too soon from the last movies that it kinda gets written off. 
@chocobojam said:

I loved it also. It's only problem IMO was it was too soon since the last trilogy.

Yes It was a simple movie without trying to be epic. Take away the name Dredd and it still would have been a good movie.

No one saw Dredd.

Aside from K4 and like five people he paid to watch it with him, I mean.

Admit it.

Yea, unfortunately the Stallone film left a bad taste in a lot of peoples mouths. Its just a shame that it did so poorly. Doesnt look like we will get a sequel.

TDKR was utter sh*t.

The ONLY award that should've walked away with is Best Villain, Dredd should've taken Best Script and Dredd or ASM should've taken best actress.

Bane over Loki? Really?

Well, I did vote "Best Special Effect" for Dredd...

"Speak of the devil and he will appear". I can't remember a single line Loki uttered. Against that you have so many memorable Bane quotes.

Posted by mcbean

The Avengers over The Dark Knight Rises come on people I guess special effects beat story driven movies how sad.

Posted by FoxxFireArt

Scarlett Johansson was robbed!! Her role as Black Widow was awesome. Anne Hathaway's part as Catwoman wasn't terrible, at best.

I enjoyed TDKR, but Best Script? Really?

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Awesome

Posted by spidershamrock

I thought Avengers and TDKR were great films, Avengers had better elements to it e.g better director for bringing all together perfectly, but TDKR was a better film due to story and sheer awesomness

I would've loved a best soundtrack award.

Avengers won best movie and people are still angry? O_O

Whhhaaaaatt?

"I am Loki of Asgard, and I am burdened with glorious purpose." "This is a child at prayer, pathetic!" and let us not forget "I am Loki, all of you are beneath me. I- bang slam slam!!!"

What did Bane have? "You have my permission to die?"

Dredd deserves something at the least

Your Wrong man. Dredd Wrong. Lol.

I Loved Dredd, saw it in theaters twice and bought it on DVd and have it digitally on my ipad too. It was fantastic and in my opinion was just more fun than TDKR, ASM or dare i say it Avengers. Sure those movies were big time blockbusters that made a combined 2 billion plus, but Dredd was just bad ass. It new what it was and just was uncompromisingly violent and was straight and to the point. It did everything it was going for really well. I loved it. Avengers and TDKR were still great and I enjoyed them too but...Its all about Dredd.

Posted by lifeboy

It was pretty close between avengers and batman. But I enjoyed judge dredd the most. Loved mama! Avengers only two flaws were the story and the villians. Battmans only three flsws were the dumb looks that talia got when she was dying, the part of bruce being in the pit and bruce being shown alive at the end.
