The Comic Vine 2013 Movie Awards WINNERS

This year had plenty of fun movies, but which ones did the community love the most? Come see which films earned awards!

Last week, the Comic Vine community voted and debated over the hefty amount of comic book (and comic book-ish) movies this year had to offer. We packed 10 categories with options and, after a whole week of discussion and picking favorites, the results are in. One film has taken a majority of the awards. Is it one you really dug? Well, read on to find out.

And the winners are...

Best Hero

With 39% of 726 votes, Henry Cavill wins for his performance as Superman!

Runner-up: Chris Hemsworth (Thor)

Best Villain

With 36% of 689 votes, Tom Hiddleston wins for his performance as Loki!

Runner-up: Michael Shannon (Zod)

Best Supporting Character

We have a tie! With both taking 21% of 642 votes, Ian McKellen (Gandalf) and Antje Traue (Faora) win!

Runner-up: Jim Carrey (Colonel Stars and Stripes)

Best Visual Effects

With 35% of 622 votes, Pacific Rim wins!

Runner-up: Man of Steel

Best Action Scene

With 37% of 638 votes, the final Superman vs. Zod fight in Man of Steel wins!

Runner-up: Smallville Battle (Man of Steel)

Best Director

With 24% of 558 votes, Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) wins!

Runner-up: Peter Jackson (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug)

Best Credits Scene

With 47% of 525 votes, The Wolverine wins!

Runner-up: Thor: The Dark World

Best Script

With 25% of 546 votes, Man of Steel wins!

Runner-up: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Best Animated Movie

With 56% of 546 votes, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox wins!

Runner-up: Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2

Best Movie

With 45% of 662 votes, Man of Steel wins!

Runner-up: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Earning 6 out of 10 categories, Man of Steel is flying away with the most awards. Look, we all know it's a totally polarizing movie, so if you're going to debate over the community's results, try to avoid mudslinging.

If you took time to vote and speak your mind on the nominations: thanks for participating and here's hoping 2014's comic book movies are everything we want them to be and then some. Have a happy New Year, Viners!

Well, I'm just going to choose to disagree with the majority of this list but, seriously, SNYDER as best director?!? It's like everyone is taking crazy pills!

Glad to see Pacific Rim got the visual effects award.

MOS wasn't thát good let's be honest here

Posted by Dragonborn_CT

Eh, Loki wasn't even a villain for the most part of Thor 2... But then again, still a better option than Malekith.

Edited by inferiorego

I saw Kick Ass 2 the other night. I kinda loved it. Apparently, I was the only one.

It's all subjective. Apparently enough people thought it was.

Faora tied with Gandalf? MoS for best director and script? F*cking really?

Edited by dreamfall31

Yay, thanks to all the Man of Steel lovers....yech

MoS yay!

Though I wasn't a fan of MoS, I'm not surprised that it took so many awards. The battles were very kinetic and exciting, and Snyder is a director with a very distinct style that shows through consistantly in the film. Whether it was the RIGHT style for the character is a different debate.

Very happy to see Pacific Rim and Loki take home some big prizes. Two of my favorite flicks of the year.

I'm suprised that MOS won so much, I wasn't a massive fan of it tbh. I don't think Snyder should have won best director at all though, his use of the snap zoom was starting to give me a headache by the end of the film

Posted by AllStarSuperman

MoS yay!

YAY!!!!

In before the Man of Steel hate.

I saw Kick Ass 2 the other night. I kinda loved it. Apparently, I was the only one.

I loved it, not as much as the first one though.

Edited by Jonny_Anonymous

Pacific Rim won something so I'm happy about that.

On another note that's a pretty cool MoS poster.

Posted by Dirk_Dexter

MoS - Well-derserved.

Posted by Squalleon

I am kinda surprised Man of Steel won so many categories. Personally i voted it only for best Villian and Action Scene.

Yay, thanks to all the Man of Steel lovers....yech

For man of steel to win in so many categories it was certainly voted by more than some "lovers".

Posted by G_leno

how? how did MoS get best script? did everyone go and see Thor and Hobbit with ear plugs in? I expect less fanboyism next year people! I can understand most of the other results.

Edited by Lvenger

MOS winning best script award? Seriously? The script was one of the most lackluster and soulless lines this year. That's the award I'm most put out about it winning. The rest are to be expected really.

These results justified why i'm saying that ComicVine is DC bias

Go Supe!!!!

Much deserved.

And in 2012 CV was Marvel bias when it won 7 with The Avengers.

Posted by Ett

I feel like Man of Steel won because of it was a superman movie and not because it was best in these category.

MoS VICTORY DANCE PARTY!

Man of Steel wins!

Haters keep on hating!

Posted by ImTheDamnBatman

People will complain, but guess what? Man of Steel won the most because it was the best movie of the options. The truth hurts haters.

I dont even know where to start with you. But @lvenger who is a mega Superman fan would disagree with that statement.

Not as much as pointing out the gaping and obvious flaws in MOS seems to hurt its supporters. People make one criticism of MOS and it's flooded with "Haters gonna hate" and "Another one of these threads" BS. When people are really noting its notable errors and massive problems. Hate on that as much as you want but for those who dislike MOS like myself, it's very apparent.

Was a great year... Man of Steel, Thor 2, The Wolverine. Can't wait for Cap 2 in 2014!

Kick Ass 2 was brilliant. I loved the heck out of that movie, almost more so than the first!

Funny yes, but I felt some of the pacing was off at key points, especially emotional moments. Still, Kick Ass 2 was my favourite comic book film of the year.

Only thing i disagree with here, is Zack being best director.

Posted by ImTheDamnBatman

@lvenger: Direct me to some issues with MoS that others movies in the options did better on. I'd love to be proven wrong on something completely subjective.

STILL DANCING!

1. People come online and complain about a movie they watched

2. More pepole come online and complain about the pepole complaining about the movie

While I really enjoyed Man of Steel I don't think it deserves to win Best Script (and by extension Best Movie). The script was just a complete and total mess. Poor pacing, poor structure, just completely amateurish on Goyer's part (Then again that is how I find most of his work). All his characters do is speak at each other, never to each other. They give big monologues but there are never real exchanges between them. People don't speak in speeches. It just created a huge disconnect for a lot of viewers.

He tried to copy his success of Batman Begins but it doesn't work with this movie. Put them side by side and they have almost the same progression. One of the biggest issues here is the flashbacks. Just like in Batman Begins he tries to use flashbacks to flesh out Clark as a character but here they are just hollow. They are poorly placed and don't have anywhere near as good as a mechanism to call to a flashback like Begins did, and they only ended up hurting the pacing and flow of the movie.

While I think that Guillermo Del Toro or Peter Jackson deserved to win for Best Director I can't deny that Snyder did a great job with the poor script he had.

I think that if any of the Man of Steel fights should have won for best fight, it's the Smallville fight. While I don't mind the destruction I think that Zod vs Superman was too grandiose and destructive for its own good. There was more depth to the Smallville fight the Zod v. Superman fight was just them throwing and hitting each other through things. The choreography and execution of the Smallville fight was simply better.

Kinda disagree with the Man of Steel script, I loved the movie, but seriously that line about him being kind of 'hot', was cringe worthy...

Edited by ccraft

I watched Hobbit 2 yesterday, it was an amazing movie. I definitely would have voted for it in the polls for best visuals, best fight scene, and maybe...best movie. I voted a lot for MoS, which was also an amazing movie.

Posted by Outside_85

Glad to see MoS win so much in the face of all the fan-boy slamming it's received since release.

Because Thor's was non-existent and the Hobbit was just reading off from a book from 1912 with added action-padding?

Posted by Deathstroke19

Loki wasn't even a villain in TDW.....

Best Director.... Hahahaha. The fact that Jackson wasn't picked is just silly.

Best script I suppose is a toss up between The Hobbit and MoS but I thought The Hobbit should win because I knew MoS would take most of the other categories.

Still laughing about best director lol.

No single movie blew me away this year. There were a few I enjoyed, some I did not.
