Phil’s End Of Year Awards 2020

So 2020 is almost over (thank god!) and it’s that time a year again where everyone reflects back on their best and worst films of the year.  So we’ve covered our best and our worst films of 2020, so before we look at the films coming up in 2021 here’s my ‘Alternative’ End of Year Awards for 2020…

 

The Most Entertainingly Bad Film Of The Year Award…

 

Can I just watch the bloody film now…
No Time To Die.  A victim of COVID and poor studio decisions.

 

The TV show 2020 Needed…
Tiger King

 

The TV moment 2020 Needed…
Luke! (Mandalorian Season 2 Final)

 

Surprise of The Year Award…
COVID and every film rescheduled to 2021.  Who saw that coming?

 

 

Performance Of The Year Award…
The marketing team at EON/Sony.  They actually made us believe three times Bond may come out.  

 

 

The ‘Okay that shouldn’t have been THAT good’ award…
Greenland

 

 

Yup, I’m over them Award…
Not them.  But can Adam Sandler please STOP with the silly kid voice he does in all his comedy films now.  I think we are MORE than aware what a great actor he can be.

 

 

Well that wasn’t worth the wait award…
The New Mutants

 

 

 

Okay so he CAN still make a great film...
Adam Sandler. Hubie Halloween was simply a master… no I am of course joking.  Uncut Gems. Amazing.

 

 

Oh that came out THIS year? Award…
Bad Boys 4 Life.  If it wasn’t for Ross constantly hating on this film I would have forgotten it even had come out.

 

 

We like you but maybe take a year off…
Blumhouse.  Too many films. Too little quality control. 

 

 

Come In Your time is Up Award…
Johnny Depp – he fought the Sun and… The Sun won.

 

 

Now lets see it with Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan Award…
Blumhouse’s Freaky

 

 

The Ross And Phil Award for ‘Yes Ross we get it you LOVE Happy Death Day’ Award…
Happy Death Day

 

 

Trailer Of The Year Award…
Top Gun: Maverick.  Yup two years in a row. Not like much else was trailered this year.  

 

 

Emperors new clothes Award…
Tenet.  It didn’t save 2020.  It didn’t save cinema.  It also wasn’t that great.

 

 

Cameo of The Year Award…
Ben Affleck in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.  Along with Matt Damon, Chris Hemsworth, Melissa Benoist, Val Kilmer, Tommy Chong, Brian Quinn, Jason Biggs and many more.

 

 

The Oscars only like REALLY famous dead people award for missing out other stars who died Award…
Luke Perry, Jan-Michael Vincent, Cameron Boyce, Sid Haig, Michael J. Pollard

 

 

The Poof That Award Shows DONT Suck Award…
Parasite wins EVERYTHING and Joaquin Phoenix for The Joker

 

 

The Proof That Award Shows Suck Award…
Adam Sandler not even getting nominated of Uncut Gems???

 

 

WHY GOD WHY? Award…
Dolittle (2020) & Artemis Fowl.  Just appalling.

 

 

Less Is More Award…
Tenet.  Just because you have a kitchen sink you don’t need to throw it at us…

 

 

The Ross Had A Better Ending Than the Film Award…
The Invisible Man

 

 

Films That SHOULD have been on my 2019 List’s but I Hadn’t Seen…
Hitsville: The Making of Motown, Dolemite Is My Name, Ford V Ferrari, One Cut Of The Dead, American Factory

 

 

Next time: Phil’s Look at 2021 and a look back at my 2020 predictions (lol)…
