Moviegoers to Pick Favorite Film of Year with ShoWest/Fandango Fan Choice Award 

Sweepstakes Winner Will Attend Award Ceremony on April 2 at ShoWest in Las Vegas

by Impact Wire Saturday, February 21, 2009
On Sunday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (R) presents the Oscar(R) to the Best Picture of the year. But in a recent Fandango poll, 81% of moviegoers on the site say that the Academy's picks are out of touch with mainstream film choices. (None of 2008's top 10 box office hits ranks among the Academy's five Best Picture choices.)

This year, Fandango is asking fans to vote online for the film that truly deserves the honor as the best movie of the year. Fandango's first annual Fan Choice Award will be presented at ShoWest, the world's largest theatrical convention, on April 2. Voters can also participate in a sweepstakes for a chance to attend the awards ceremony live in Las Vegas on a free four-day/three-night getaway. To vote for the "2008 Movie of the Year", and enter the sweepstakes, visit http://awardswatch.fandango.com/sweepstakes/fanchoiceaward2008.php

Voting ends on February 27, 2009.

The ten nominees for the ShoWest/Fandango Fan Choice Award are comprised of the top ten top-grossing films of the year. They are as follows:

The Dark Knight

Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who

Hancock

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Iron Man

Kung Fu Panda

Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Quantum of Solace
