2015 Film Junk Readers’ Choice Award Winners

2015readerschoicewinners

Well, the votes have finally been tallied and it’s time to unveil the winners of our 2015 Film Junk Readers’ Choice Awards. While most categories had some pretty clear winners this year, there were a few close races… in particular, the Documentary, Indie and Foreign Film categories. Not surprisingly, Mad Max: Fury Road took the overall Best Movie award with quite a few votes, although Star Wars: The Force Awakens made a pretty good run towards the end. I think you can probably guess a lot of the other winners although I, for one, was a little surprised that a Marvel movie did not win Best Comic Book Movie. Check out the full list of winners along with a breakdown of the voting after the jump.

Around the Web:



  • EJ

    Why no percentages on Best and Worst?

  • Sean

    I’ll try to add them shortly…

  • ronin_cse

    The Avengers is voted as a worse movie than Pixels, Jupiter Ascending, and Fifty shades of grey? No way

    Everything else on the list is pretty spot on IMO though.

  • Vicious Pink Phenomena

    What an utterly abysmal year for horror and comedy.

  • EJ

    Agreed, also why are Spectre, Force Awakens, and Room in the running… Strange choices.
    Edit: I could see most disappointing, but worst… I don’t think so, bud.

  • ronin_cse

    People just like to be edgy I think.

  • Sean

    Yeah, you have to remember that a lot of people won’t actually pay to see something they’ve already heard is bad. So a lot of those choices are the worst from what a lot of people actually saw.

  • ReelJunkie

    Props on that Rebecca Ferguson image Sean.

  • EJ

    Classic Sean, always looking out for the copo.

  • Sean

    Not sure what that has to do with the copo but I guess somebody’s gotta do it?

  • EJ

    Well I guess your looking out for people who make their choices based on the copo, so they’re buying into the copo but they aren’t necessarily the copo, especially if they’re voting it worst, which virtually nobody did. Soooo, I guess I don’t really know who you’re looking out for.

  • Sean

    Yeah I don’t think everyone cast their votes based on the copo, but they had to cast their votes based on what they actually saw. The average person probably sees what… 20 movies in a year? So that’s just what happens with group voting like this. As you can see by the percentages, there isn’t a ton of consensus but it’s still kind of interesting.

  • EJ

    Yeah, I can see that, particularly in the worst category, though my personal worst movie did actually win out. And as far as winners go everything lined up exactly with my personal taste. I definitely haven’t seen all the losers, but I’ve seen all the winners so I guess I’d have to say the copo probably played a part in what I saw too. Hate that the Revenant didn’t make it in though.

  • Roose Bolton

    A lot of Avengers hate for some reason.

  • Dave Barford

    The lady with the yellow dress and the shotgun? What movie is that?

  • Anthony

    Ok…which of you smartasses is/are the 2% that voted for Fant4stic as best Comic Book film?

  • Nick Poliskey

    When was the last year we had a GOOD year of comedy?

  • Sean

    That is a great question for the KoC.

    After a quick glance, my vote is 2004: Anchorman, Shaun of the Dead, Team America, Napoleon Dynamite, The Life Aquatic, Sideways, Eternal Sunshine.

  • JerryCotton

    Good choice. Is Eternal Sunshine really a comedy though? I love that movie and there are some really funny bits but I’ve never considered it a comedy.

  • devolutionary

    Don’t forget Kill Bill: Vol 2 since the KOC considers Tarantino comedy first and foremost.

  • Sean

    Yeah it’s a bit of a stretch. I just included it to get Frankie’s goat.
