OSCARS OR GOLDEN GLOBES?
NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – July 17, 2007 – Movies.com returns with its exclusive Annual Readers’ Poll, and this year’s categories are sure to elicit entertaining and shocking results. Should Tobey Maguire continue his reign in the Spider-Man franchise? Will Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt outshine Suri Cruise? Movies.com readers decide – and maybe they’ll even sway Hollywood hard-hitters’ decisions!
“This is the only place where film fans get a chance to make their own voices heard, and on a range of topics from the serious to the irreverent,” said editorial director Lew Harris. “Last year, Johnny Depp ran away with most of the honors; we’re anxious to see who’s tickled the readers’ fancy this year.”
Today through August 14, fans can visit www.movies.com/fanpoll to cast nominations in categories devoted to individual movies, actors, and other quirky topics. Finalists in each category will be announced August 28 and voting for those nominees will be open until September 25. Official Movies.com Readers’ Poll winners will be announced on October 2.
