    Better question...

    Did anyone ever care about the Blockbuster Awards, besides Blockbuster?

    For people who are into 3-hour long commericals, the Blockbuster Awards were grand entertainment!

    I'd rather watch Battlefield Earth than get stuck watching the BB awards. [​IMG]

    Was there ever a perceivable differance between the BLOCKBUSTER AWARDS and the PEOPLES CHOICE AWARDS? Besides we no longer need a seperate award show so that crappy blockbusters can win some kind of statue, when Oscar seems happy to honor such shallow fare as GLADIATOR.

    This is a travesty. I've never been so disappointed in my entire life.

    And for them to blame "the uncertainty of the times due to September 11" is pitiful. They should just state the facts -- no one cares.

    Cancelled? I mean, this is the only time you would have gotten to hear "Best Film" and "Bubble Boy" mentioned in the same sentence. [​IMG]

    Does Blockbuster actually think that they're important enough to be bombed?

    Gladiator put me to sleep, and CTHD was overrated to say the least, but either one was better than Unbreakable. C'mon!

    Sorry...didn't mean to push this forward as a topic change over to an Oscar debate. Let's get back on topic:

    BLOCKBUSTER SUCKS!!

    "I can name five better films off the top of my head than Gladiator that came out in 2000 (those being Requiem for a Dream, Almost Famous, Unbreakable, Crouching Tiger..., and Traffic)."
    Yeah, and Dancer In The Dark, Memento, With A Friend Like Harry, In The Mood For Love, Maelstrom, Cast Away, High Fidelity, You Can Count On Me, Before Night Falls, American Psycho, Widow of Saint Pierre.....
    shall I go on?
    Ok I will....
    Chicken Run, Nurse Betty, The Original Kings of Comedy, Wonder Boys, The Contender, Hamlet, Quills, A Time For Drunken Horses, The Way of the Gun.....
    Give me another 25 and I'll get to Gladiator. [​IMG] Yeah, we all know who won, but that doesn't mean it deserved it.
