What did you see this weekend?

"A Simple Favor. It starts out as Gone Girl meets Bad Moms with the gloss of a trashy CW show, but somehow ends up as Clue? " - Chasm301

"Assassination Nation signals Ben Levinson as a filmmaker to look out for." -TonyTR

"Colette. The reviews seem overblown; it’s a very standard, by-the-numbers biopic. " - ER

by Nathaniel R

We're racing to the finish line for the 2017 film season. One more day until we can safely put that film year behind us and enter 2018 where y'all already are no doubt. Now we turn our eyes to the bold strokes categories. The men and women who inspired through heroics, were fun to hate, who preened fabulously, or (ahem) aroused us. So click on over to the Film Bitch Awards for:

  • Hero of the Year
  • Diva of the Year
  • Villain of the Year
  • Sexpot of the Year
  • Movie Poster of the Year

Films honored include Thor Ragnarok, The Shape of Water, Spider-Man Homecoming, Colossal, The Ornithologist, Wonder Woman, mother!, Phantom Thread, andmore. Hope you enjoy and report back with your own thoughts on these "extra" honors!

Yes! I love these! I’m hoping Hela, the Beast and Pennywise take the villain medals. Rooting for WW and BJK on the hero side. Love the kedi as divas—perfect choice.

Pretty sure Paul Rudd didn't voice Miguel in Coco.

James McAvoy for villain and diva!

March 13, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterPedro

I would have included 'The Post' for movie poster of the year.

March 13, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterbrandz

Do we think if SPLIT was released later in the year, McAvoy would've been in the conversation for Best Actor awards? Or did it never have a chance esp. with GET OUT "stealing" its thunder as the critical/audience-fave horror film by getting better reviews and making a lot more money?

Anyways, my ultimate point is it's criminal that James McAvoy doesn't have an Oscar nomination yet.

Nat, since we don't have your FB nominees for Male Cameo/Limited in 2016, is Tom Holland in your top 5 for that? If not, where does he rank?

March 13, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterChris

Paul Hemy and Jai Courtney could play really, really, really hot brothers who sexily solve sex crimes while shirtless!

Harris Dickinson's body is insane. He's only 21!

March 13, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterTyler

Ryan T,

It was never going to happen. Mcavoy is great but he was in the wrong type of movie. Films like Get Out and Shape of Water overcame the genre bias. Split was never that type. Not that a film should have to be but it seems for people to give a genre film credibility it needs to be about something "deeper".

sexpot: frankie from beach rats - looks like harris dickinson, doesn't talk much, into older guys. so damn hot i had to log onto grindr midway through the movie

March 13, 2018 | Unregistered Commenterpar

brandz-

THE POST poster was awesome!! Such a nice change rather than using their 2 megastars 'floating heads'

I'm sure that will change for the DVD release. *sigh*

March 14, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterDAVID

Yay! Love these. Kedi cats as divas - genius.

Is it weird that I would consider Jamie Bell for Sexpot? He looked soooo good in Film Stars, both in and out of all those sweaters...

And Annette, too, now that I'm thinking about it.

March 14, 2018 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

"Colossal" only for Best Poster? No "Gloria" for Best Heroine? No "Oscar" for Best Villain - he's a villain for the ages! I get why most people do not realize how complex and brilliant "Colossal" is, and how Vigalondo juggles through genres and defies expectations and clichés, to develope a powerful character act for both his heroine and his - hidden - villain... but it's the most unique and challenging film of the year - screenplay-wise and for the audience - and it's truly a powerful experience and a damn brilliant rollercoaster ride.

There's not a single POC...
