The Movies Without Pity Awards: Directing Directors to the Exits

Kevin Smith has announced that he's going to stop directing, but we'll believe it when we see it, and then throw a party. Because he really has to stop. And he's not the only one. There are plenty of directors who should simply cut their losses and close up shop, and we're calling them out in the first annual Movies Without Pity Awards. And you get to vote on them!

Should M. Night Shyamalan retire after failing to turn things around with that Airbender movie? Or should Woody Allen call it quits, since nowadays he only makes movies for the critics? You'll have until Monday to vote on these categories before we close the voting period and begin the tabulation, and don't forget to vote on Facebook, where there are even more categories to choose from. The ultimate winners will be announced February 18!

The Movies Without Pity Awards: Part XVII – The Final Chapter

Apparently, the old way of filmmaking is dying, and sequels to blockbuster franchises are the only things holding Hollywood up. Don't get us wrong, we love a good sequel, but there's always the risk that a great movie can be sullied by a sub-par follow-up, and the whole affair can get really boring. That's why we're going to judge past sequels, and yet be optimistic about future ones in our first annual Movies Without Pity Awards!

Which movie was the "Movie that Most Needs a Sequel" from 2010? Which was the "Worst Follow-Up to an Awesome Movie"? Which was the "Movie That Should Become a TV Series"? And what about next year? Which is your "Most Anticipated Sequel of 2011"? You'll have a week to vote on these categories before we end the voting segment and start tabulating, and the ultimate winners will be announced February 18. And don't forget to vote on Facebook, where you can weigh in on even more topics!

The Movies Without Pity Awards: Thank You For Your Support, Actors

The Best Supporting Actor category is a proud tradition, shining the spotlight on those who weren't in the actual spotlight, but did their best to hold the movie together from the sidelines. That said, not every actor is very supporting -- some of them coast through their scenes, not feeling like they have to do much work, and some even distract the audience from the main action with their bizarre choices. To that end, we've given them two different categories in the inaugural Movies Without Pity Awards.

Cast your vote for "Best Supporting Actor" and "Worst Supporting Actor" all this week, in this final round of voting. You'll have until Sunday to vote on these categories and ten others before they close, and then we'll start tabulating -- the ultimate winners will be announced February 18! And don't forget to vote on Facebook, where you can weigh in on even more topics!

The Movies Without Pity Awards: Separating the Best from the Wannabebest

The Academy Awards made headlines last year by announcing that they would be going back to having ten nominees for Best Picture. Well, we'll do them one better. Okay, ten better -- our Best Movie category in the Movies Without Pity Awards has over 20 nominees! Because why be a hater?

That said, we also have a category called "Most Yawn-Inducing Oscar Bait," because sometimes you have to be a hater. So whether you think The King's Speech is amazing or a genetically engineered awards juggernaut, you'll be able to cast your vote for it! You'll have a week to vote on these categories and ten others before they close, and don't forget to vote on Facebook, where you can weigh in on even more topics. This is our last week of voting -- the ultimate winners will be announced February 18!

The Movies Without Pity Awards: Overused Actor, Will You Please Go Now?

We're getting a little tired of Natalie Portman. With one comedy in theaters, a drama out today, and her popping up at every awards show to take home a statuette, it's a bit much for us to take. If only we could vote for her to be Most Overused Actress in this year's Movies Without Pity Awards!

It'll have to wait, because while Portman may be omnipresent this year, we're voting on 2010. Was last year's Most Overused Actress Katherine Heigl? Kristen Stewart? Angelina Jolie? What about actors? Jonah Hill? Josh Duhamel? Sam Worthington? You can vote in these two categories and nine others in this week's round of voting; fresh categories will be available on Monday, and the ultimate winners will be announced February 18. Plus, we've created a Facebook app so you can share your votes with your friends!

The Movies Without Pity Awards: What We Really Want to Do is Judge Directors

Is a good director one who you forget is there, because you're so immersed in the story unfolding on the screen? Or one who reminds you of why he's so awesome every five minutes with a montage or a jump cut or a sped-up scene? Whichever you believe, you can make your vote known in our first-annual Movies Without Pity Awards!

Aronofsky. Fincher. Hooper. Russell. Coen. The usual suspects. But what about Nolan? Boyle? Scorsese? Wright? Favreau? Vaughn? Granik? Affleck, for God's sake? Where are their nominations? Well, since we're the directors of this particular awards show, we said "the kid stays in the picture" and nominated them all! You can vote in this category and ten others in this week's round of voting; fresh categories will be available on Monday, and the ultimate winners will be announced February 18. Plus, we've created a Facebook app so you can share your votes with your friends!
