2011 People’s Choice Awards Winners Announced

2011 People's Choice Awards2011 is off and running, and the first major awards show, the People’s Choice Awards, has come and gone; and in its first year of having a Favorite Horror Movie category, the people picked a real stinker.

Yep, one of the Dread Central staff’s overwhelming picks for the worst film of 2010, A Nightmare on Elm Street, got the people’s vote as Favorite Horror Film, beating out some pretty stiff competition from The Crazies, The Last Exorcism, Let Me In, and Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Here are the other genre (or slightly genre) winners:

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Favorite Movie, Favorite Drama Movie, and Favorite Onscreen Team (Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Kristen Stewart) with Kristen Stewart winning for Favorite Movie Actress

“Dexter” – Favorite TV Obsession (at least they got THAT right!)

“Fringe” – Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show (also nominated were “Smallville”, “Supernatural”, “True Blood”, and “The Vampire Diaries”; a little surprised “True Blood” didn’t take this one)

And that’s it for us. To see all the winners, visit the official People’s Choice Awards website.

    I think a steady diet of Hollywood craptastic movies coupled with reality tv has lowered the collective North American IQ.

    If all you know is crap then crap is what you enjoy.

    i.e. People who buy Bose speakers and think they have good sound. Marketing can trump reality.

    The People’s Choice Awards are nothing but a painful reminder that the masses are indeed asses. Hell, I actually enjoyed the new ANOES for what it was and I’ll agree to that.

    I realized this about fifteen minutes in when Adam Sandler was voted as favorite comedic actor over Steve Carrel, whose vocal work in Despicable Me alone was ten times funnier than anything Sandler has done since The Wedding Singer.
    I’d be tempted to write something sarcastic here like “I weep for the future”,but the future doesn’t enter into it. I weep for the present.

    Clearly, the people who voted were either paid off by Platinum Dunes or there’s something wrong with them and they need help.
