2010 Internet Movie Poster Awards - Not So Serious Awards

Color Blind Award: Goes to Leap Year for its posters featuring a dress of fluctuating color.
The Boogeyman Award: Goes to this foreign poster for Nutcracker in 3D which likely gave nightmares to parents and children alike.
Best Election Tie-In: Goes to UK posters for The A-Team for asking viewers to vote for the characters during elections.
Most Original Critical Blurbs: Goes to Buried for incorporating the review excerpts into part of the design.
Laziest Movie Poster Award: Goes to How Do You Know for a design that looks like it took about thirty seconds to put together using a few star photos that just happened to be close by.
Best Seasonal Poster Awards: Go to the various posters for Despicable Me promoting Easter, Mother's Day, and Father's Day as well as the German Christmas poster for Tangled.
Most Secretive Poster Award: Goes to Catfish for its poster that tells us absolutely nothing about the film and insists that we don't let anyone else tell us about it.
Worst Poster Rip-Off: Goes to several foreign posters for The Crazies that just re-used the artwork from one of the posters (and DVD cover) for The Mist.
Most Inappropriate Nose Placement Award: Goes to this international poster of The Karate Kid for obvious reasons.
Finger Amputation Award: Goes to Cyrus for doing a little manipulation with Jonah Hill's right hand.
Most Meaningless Poster Award: Is a tie between the two posters for Extraordinary Measures which tell us absolutely nothing about the movie except who stars in it. (Oddly enough, the second one bears a peculiar resemblance to Rain Man.
Staying Calm Under Pressure Award: Goes to Jonathan Rhys Meyers for appearing completely at ease as he drives a car and aims a gun while his partner launches a rocket from the passenger side window in this poster. This poster also wins a special award for best bilingual tagline with "Two agents. One City. No Merci."
Best Implied Sex Involving Bears Award: A tie between Yogi Bear and Furry Vengeance.
Most Symmetrical Body Parts Award: Goes to Russell Brand in Get Him to the Greek for his mirror-image hands.
Best Head Transplant Award: Goes to Ewan McGregor in Ghost Writer.
Best Mis-Read Tagline: Goes to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I. Every time The IMP looks at these posters he sees an extra space in the first word. Harry arrives and "now here is safe."
Attack of the Clone Tool Award: Goes to Marmaduke for two pair of sunglasses that are just a wee bit too identical.
Afterthought Award: Goes to Chevy Chase in Hot Tub Time Machine and Eva Mendes in The Other Guys for apparently being shoved into the corner of the poster at the last moment.
Yes, You're Still on the Poster Award: Goes to the theatrical poster for The Parking Lot Movie which slightly shrinks the size of the stars who were featured so prominently on the festival poster.
Cross-Dressing Award: Goes to the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I poster for making Alan Rickman's Severus Snape look like a man dressed as a woman and the Percy Jackson and the Olympians poster for making Uma Thurman's Medusa look like a man dressed as a woman.
Best Gratuitous Butt Shot Award: Goes to I Spit on Your Grave and Piranha 3D.
Most Psychotic Expression Award: Goes to John Malkovich in Red. Runner up: Russell Brand in Get Him to the Greek.
Irresponsible Poster Awards: Go to the various "ads" for The Union in Repo-Men that tell you it's all right to abuse your body because you can always get replacement organs from them. Of course you might want to read the small print that talks about them not being responsible for any injuries or fatalities that may occur during organ repossession.
Worst New Genre Award: Goes to A True Story for promoting their film as a "Bromantic Dramedy".
Great Minds Think Alike Award: Goes to the first poster for Saw 3D that had a lot of people commenting on its striking similarity to a Sony Playstation ad from several years ago.
The Vuvuzela Award: Goes to Sex and the City 2, Shrek Forever After, and Toy Story 3 for their international posters trying to cash in on the World Cup craze.
Most Stoned Ensemble Cast Award: Goes to the poster for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Best Poster Rating: Goes to the Australian film Machete Maidens Unleashed which is rated R for "Ridiculous: Contains karate-kickin' midgets, paper mache monsters, and busty babes with blades."
Sex in the UK City Award: Goes to for its none-too-subtle nod to the Sex and the City 2 poster.
and finally...
