And Bane got the best villain?? You mean the guy that can't speak, always has his hands on his vest and wears a lame jacket? I liked his mask... and that is about it.

Well to be fair it wasn't that hard,his lead competition was a skinny nerd with horns who looked like he'd walked out of a cosplay convention.

Nailed it, lol

Agree with most of these awards. I would have given the best script to the Avengers though. The only reason the Avengers ever worked as well as it did is all because of the script in my opinion.

One movie seemed to "rise" higher than it actually should have. Too much hype, not enough good action or story that made sense. And BOO for no Dredd wins!

This thread rather explicitly shows the maturity and inferiority complex of the Avengers fanboys.Avengers won most of the categories and they STILL complain,the comments on this article remind me of the troll fest that's comicbook movie.

I'm sorry, but there were too many plot holes in The Dark Knight Rises for me to even vote it for best script... The characters and story itself I found were well written, but there were just too many plot holes in it. Dredd was also good, but I know little about the character to start making assumptions about the film adaptation.

Bane over Loki? Really?

"Speak of the devil and he will appear". I can't remember a single line Loki uttered. Against that you have so many memorable Bane quotes.

Whhhaaaaatt?

"I am Loki of Asgard, and I am burdened with glorious purpose." "This is a child at prayer, pathetic!" and let us not forget "I am Loki, all of you are beneath me. I- bang slam slam!!!"

What did Bane have? "You have my permission to die?"

"The fire rises!"

"No one cared who I was until I put on the mask."

"Not as serious as yours...I fear."

"Let's not stand on ceremony here...mister Wayne."

"Victory has defeated you!"

"Theatricality and deception, powerful agents for the uninitiated. But we are initiated, aren't we Bruce? Members of the League of Shadows"

"And you think this gives you power over me?"

"You think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING!"

and

"You'll just have to imagine the fire!"

and many more.

Don't forget the "When Gotham is...ashes...Then you have my permission to die" speech. It was so awesome.

Only ones I can't agree with are Best Villain and Best Script. I just can't wrap my mind around Bane being a better villain than Loki. And, I just can't see how anyone would say the DKR has a better scripts the The Avengers, or even Spider-Man or Dredd for that matter...

Because DKR had actual dialogue as opposed to the continual sequences "boom, boom, punch, funny quip, boom, meaningful speech, boom" scenes that made up the entirety of Avengers.

Yeah, its funny how he says this, but then turns out to be subjugated by Thanos himself, who btw doesn't really have an interest to be taking interest in Earth.

Can't speak to Best Animated, as the only one on the list I have actually see was Justice League: Doom which was awesome.

Everything else, I more or less agree with or at least can see how/why they won, even if I didn't vote for one or two of them.

Yay! Amazing Spider-Man didn't win anything! I'm so happy. I hate that overrated piece of sh*t. It was just horrible.

There should of been a worst movie award. Then ASM could of won something.

I am very surprised that Dredd/Urban didn’t get any wins here. I know ticket sales were terrible in the US. Thanks, in no small part, to the ’95 atrocity, “Judge Dredd”. But for those who did see it; you have to agree that Urban was far more authentic to his character’s comic book persona than anyone else has, at least in 2012. I know RDJ won Best Actor in a Leading Role, but I feel that Tony Stark’s persona is drowned by Robert Downey Jr. just playing Rober Downey Jr. Carl Urban had to step outside himself a lot more to play Dredd, a role in which it is obvious that he did a lot research into the character. And that slow-mo shoot-out scene in the beginning was the best and craziest visual effects in a movie for 2012. Dredd was, IMO, by far the best comic book movie to be released last year.
