Cujo Award: Scariest dog on a movie poster goes to Because of Winn-Dixie

Creepiest Poster Promotion: Saw II for their Halloweeen Blood Drive.
Most Revolting Poster: Waiting... for their ultimate meal from hell.
Worst Punctuation Award: The 40-Year-Old Virgin for not knowing how many hyphens to use. Honorable mention goes to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for missing a comma in the first version of the teaser.
Worst Poster Pun: Racing Stripes for the painful tagline "Cheer 'Til You're Horse". For a runner-up, choose almost any of the character posters for Sky High
The Godzilla Award: Capote. It's a great poster but, man, that guy is HUGE!
Scariest Character Poster: A tie between Oscar winners F. Murray Abraham and Kathy Bates in The Bridge of San Luis Rey
From the Studio That Brought You Award: The Greatest Game Ever Played. First, The Rookie referenced Remember the Titans. Then Miracle referenced both of them. Now this poster refers to all three. If Disney keeps making sports films they will soon run out of space on their posters.
Made You Look Twice Award: Goes to The Family Stone. It's not the middle finger, honest!
and finally...
Lamest Attempt to Cash in on the Holidays: Goes to Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Everyone's dressed for a day at the lake but for some reason the dog is wearing a Santa Claus cap.
