THE 2020 BIZARRO OSCARS! BY THE DAILY GRINDHOUSE STAFF

 

Welcome to the Daily Grindhouse Bizarro Oscars. This is our way of celebrating less conventional aspects of popular films, but even better, to spotlight those films we love that most definitely won’t be recognized at the “real” Academy Awards tonight.

 

This is the Somethingth Annual Bizarros — an exact “annual” count is dodgy since we skipped a year (although here’s 2014201620172018, and 2019, for your records) .

 

The only rule, as ever, is that there are no rules. Everyone who wanted to participate was invited, nobody anywhere was excluded, and everyone voted on the categories they felt like voting on, and if there was any category they felt was missing, they were allowed to add it and name their own winners. It’s stupid, but beautiful.

 

Safe to say 2020 was one of the most bizarro years in American history. Possibly as a result, we received less than a third of the amount of votes than we usually get. We can only assume Russian interference, or else most of our voters are still in sheltering in place, and in that case, we can’t wait to see them again, when we all finally get to venture out of our storm cellars and survival bunkers. Here are this year’s voters and where you can find them on social media.

Remember, the one overriding principle of the Bizarro Oscars is that love of movies comes first above all. That said, we reserve the right to rag on stuff too. It’s all in good fun. We know and respect how hard it is to make any movie, no matter what we think of the result, and particularly in the past few years, but still: It’s fun to goof on bad movies! It’s fun to goof on good movies too! It’s all subjective anyway! One person’s “bad” is another person’s “Best Picture!” Lighten up, Francis! Also remember: If you get through reading this post without seeing any mention of a movie you love, please pipe up in the comments! This is your Bizarros too. This is everyone’s Bizarros. Please enjoy.

All right? All right! Let’s start the show!

 

BEST END CREDITS SEQUENCE

JON ABRAMS: Right before the credits roll on VAMPIRES VS. THE BRONX, Gloria says “All is well in the Bronx yet again, but we gonna keep grinding, shining, and holding each other down. Oh, and to all future invaders, you don’t want no smoke with the BX. Get it!” Co-signed.

 

BRETT GALLMAN: TREMORS: SHRIEKER ISLAND

ROB DEAN: Rudy Giuliani, BORAT SUBSEQUENT MOVIE FILM

 

BEST MOVIE YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T SEE

JAMIE ALVEY: HUNTER HUNTER

 

ROB DEAN: YOU CANNOT KILL DAVID ARQUETTE

 

BRETT GALLMAN: THE EMPTY MAN

 

CLAIRE HOLLAND: SWALLOW

 

MATT WEDGE: ARKANSAS

 

BEST DOCUMENTARY*

 

JON ABRAMS:  SKIN: A HISTORY OF NUDITY IN THE MOVIES. Oh! And also the ESPN Bruce Lee documentary BE WATER! That was rad.

 

 

BEST COMEDY SPECIAL

 

JON ABRAMS: NATE: A ONE MAN SHOW. I’m not even entirely sure what I saw, but I know it was something special. Also Nate has got energy not unlike DG’s Roving Editor-At-Large Mike Vanderbilt.

 

 

BEST SCORE

 

JON ABRAMS: Blanck Mass did the score for CALM WITH HORSES (or THE SHADOW OF VIOLENCE, as it’s known in the States.)

 

JAMIE ALVEY: Benjamin Wallfisch for THE INVISIBLE MAN. (That man created three of the best horror scores in the past few years. He deserves the respect.)

 

ROB DEAN: GRETEL & HANSEL by ROB

 

BRETT GALLMAN: THE EMPTY MAN

 

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: CAPONE by El-P

 

UGLIEST MOVIE

 

JON ABRAMS: THE WRONG MISSY

 

JAY ALARY: VFW

 

JAMIE ALVEY: RELIC (And I mean this in a good way. The visuals in that are downright haunting. It’s shot beautifully but that mold and decay is downright ugly. It’s genius.)

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: THE TAX COLLECTOR

 

MATT WEDGE: BUTT BOY

 

PRETTIEST MOVIE

MATT WEDGE: SWALLOW

 

DUMBEST MOVIE

JON ABRAMS: BLOODSHOT. (Is he called that because his eyes are all red?)

 

ROB DEAN: ALONE (the one directed by Vladislav Khesin)

* Shouldn’t use the word ‘dumb’. Like ‘lame’, it is ableist in origin and connotation.

 

BRETT GALLMAN: HUBIE HALLOWEEN

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: MONEY PLANE

 

MATT WEDGE: FANTASY ISLAND

BRETT GALLMAN: HUBIE HALLOWEEN

 

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: HUBIE HALLOWEEN

 

MATT WEDGE: BLOODSHOT

JON ABRAMS: Rob’s point is well taken and this category will be renamed after this year. But that being said: PSYCHO GOREMAN. It’s my favorite movie of 2020, but it’s also phenomenally, profoundly, transcendently [whatever word we end up using in place of “dumb”].

 

 

 

BEST VILLAIN

JAY ALARY: Ewan McGregor, BIRDS OF PREY

 

JAMIE ALVEY: Toxic masculinity, as seen in HUNTER HUNTER, THE INVISIBLE MAN, AMULET, THE OTHER LAMB, and many others. It was a banner year for telling the patriarchy to go to hell and I was living for it.

BRETT GALLMAN: Terrence Howard, CUT THROAT CITY

 

CLAIRE HOLLAND: Elizabeth Moss as Shirley Jackson (SHIRLEY)

 

JON ABRAMS: John Goodman. He didn’t even have a movie out in 2020, but I happened to see an episode or two of The Conners and goddamn that guy is good in everything. I’m not even into The Conners, but now I feel like I ought to be watching it, if only for John Goodman. Did you know he doesn’t have an Academy Award yet?

CLAIRE HOLLAND: Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett, BIRDS OF PREY)

BEST NICOLAS CAGE MOVIE

JON ABRAMS:  Believe it or not, THE CROODS: A NEW AGE is the only other Nic Cage movie released in 2020, aside from JIU JITSU. I didn’t see it, but I did see the first one during quarantine (long story) and it’s not that bad!

 

ROB DEAN: JIU JITSU….I guess?

CLAIRE HOLLAND: COLOR OUT OF SPACE – I think this might be a 2019 movie, but I saw it in quarantine.

JAMIE ALVEY: This one has to go to Chase Williamson as Pete in SCARE PACKAGE distracting the Devil’s Lake Impaler. It was the most over-the-top and beautiful thing. Forever my final man. RIP Pete.

 

ROB DEAN: BORAT SUBSEQUENT MOVIEFILM

 

BRETT GALLMAN: BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC

BRETT GALLMAN: THE INVISIBLE MAN / Harley Quinn blowing up Jared Leto’s Joker in BIRDS OF PREY

BEST OPENING SCENE

JON ABRAMS: VAMPIRES VS. THE BRONX. Considering the year we all had, it was fresh to see this town looking so lively.

ROB DEAN: BIRDS OF PREY

 

BRETT GALLMAN: THE INVISIBLE MAN

 

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: THE OLD GUARD

 

BEST OPENING CREDITS SEQUENCE

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: DA 5 BLOODS

 

BIZARRO OSCARS: PANDEMIC EDITION!

 

 

WHAT’S THE LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN THEATERS BEFORE LOCKDOWN?

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: THE EMPTY MAN

WHAT MOVIE DO YOU WISH YOU HADN’T WATCHED IN QUARANTINE?

JON ABRAMS: THE AU PAIR NIGHTMARE

 

JAY ALARY:  VFW

 

ROB DEAN: SONGBIRD is an opportunistic, soulless hack job that trades in conspiracy, paranoia, and exploitation in the worst ways.

 

BRETT GALLMAN: THE EMPTY MAN

 

CLAIRE HOLLAND: SONGBIRD. It was free on Hulu, but still. It was terrible.

 

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: HOST

DID YOU HAVE A GO-TO 2020 SUB-GENRE? i.e. contagion horror, zombie-apocalypse, etc.

JON ABRAMS: “Spaghetti” Westerns. But that’s every year for me.

 

JAY ALARY:  Hockey documentaries!

 

BRETT GALLMAN: Italian post-apocalyptic/ MAD MAX rip-offs

 

CLAIRE HOLLAND: Cosmic horror and cults.

WHAT ONE 2020 TV SERIES DID YOU MOST ENJOY BINGE-WATCHING?

JON ABRAMS: 30 Coins

 

JAY ALARY:  None – I just watched select episodes of all the Star Treks. 

 

ROB DEAN: The Boys

 

BRETT GALLMAN: SERVANT

 

CLAIRE HOLLAND: PEN15 (Season 2)

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: The Undoing

 

MATT WEDGE: Schitt’s Creek

SAME QUESTION AS ABOVE, BUT WHAT NON-2020 TV SHOW SAVED YOUR QUARANTINE?

JON ABRAMS:  Too Old To Die Young

 

ROB DEAN: Brooklyn Nine-Nine

 

BRETT GALLMAN:  The Sopranos

 

CLAIRE HOLLAND: Broad City

 

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: Ozark

 

MATT WEDGE: The X-Files

 

WHICH MOVIE STAR WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO BE QUARANTINED WITH, AND WHY?

JON ABRAMS:  Pam Grier. She’d make me go outside more often.

 

JAY ALARY:  Alexandra Daddario – we both have blue eyes! 

 

ROB DEAN: Nick Offerman. He’s funny, smart, and handy. So he could make stuff and teach me how to make stuff. Plus I feel like we’d both be okay with silence. The other option is Oprah because I feel like I could live in her house and never see each other for weeks.

 

BRETT GALLMAN: Kurt Russell, so maybe I could learn to be cool.

 

CLAIRE HOLLAND: Jeff Bridges or Keanu Reeves; they both seem like they’d be cool to talk to for extended periods of time while drinking or smoking – critical skills in lockdown.

JON ABRAMS:Girl From The North Country” by Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan.

MATT WEDGE: Daria Nicolodi

WHAT CATEGORY SHOULD THE REAL OSCARS HAVE THAT THEY DON’T?

BRETT GALLMAN: Achievement in Stuntwork

 

JUSTIN LaLIBERTY: Everything and anything to do with stunts and stunt performers

 

MATT WEDGE: Best Stunt Team
