Forget those Academy stiffs, if we handed out prizes for 2000 film, they'd go something like this

Forget those Academy stiffs, if we handed out prizes for 2000 film, they'd go something like this

About this time of year, we film critics get a little fed up watching Hollywood pat itself on the back with prestegious awards for mostly mediocre movies.

Some of us also get a little slap-happy trying to predict said awards, and, yes, some of us get a little snide in the process. It's the frustration of knowing film industry politics are a larger factor than what's really the cream of the crop each year.

My antidote is to get some of this out my my system with the Contactmusic.com Cut-Up Awards, some of which are serious (the Best Movies Nobody Saw), some of which are cynical (the Wasted Talent Award), and some of which are just plain silly (You Want Fries With That Scenery Award).

So strap in, here we go...

Best movies NOBODY SAW
"Panic"
"Waking the Dead"
"The Virgin Suicides"
"Love's Labour's Lost"
"Human Traffic"
"Wonder Boys"

Great GUILTY PLEASURES
