2016 MoFies Discussion


I Am Rick Cottontree: The MoFo Quiz Goblin

It ain't over till the fat lady sings
I think Worst Thread and Most Controversial should disappear. Mofies is a moment to reward and thank all the Mofos that make this place better. Giving an award for something bad is just to make people feel bad, and we already have real life for that.
But that's just my opinion.
Top 100 here!

Reviews thread here!

I don't think anyone, even the most sensitive people, would be offended by getting one of those awards (besides, if one gets nominate because of controversy, then he or she is probably someone who doesn't give a sh*t about being embarrassed). They only make the MoFies a bit more fun.

I disagree. It depends on your perspective. I'm very proud of winning Most Controversial twice. I would have liked to have won it this year, but I can totally understand why 90sAce beat me. HOWEVER, I still actually think I'm more controversial than him. I've seen 90sAce actually try to apologize to people like Yoda -- and even change his mind and say he was wrong. I don't do that. 90sAce definitely was seen more often doing controversial stuff than me last year, but I also saw him apologizing, so I think he's weak. But I've been trying to keep my opinions more to myself these days and not all over the internet, so I can see why he won. Anyway -- being controversial can be great. Sometimes controversial people are RIGHT. If this was -- I dunno, a long time ago -- and everyone still believed the Earth was flat, and I went around saying, "NO! The Earth is ROUND" -- I would have won the Most Controversial MoFie that year. But guess what? I was speaking the truth. So controversial people... it's an award you can feel proud of. It's stupid to think it's just a terrible award. That shows how limited and closed minded you truly are. Even horrible people who get banned and then nominated for Most Controversial are just demonstrating another point of view.

And I'm incredibly disappointed to never see any of the so-called "stupid threads I keep making" nominated for Worst Thread. Why don't they ever get nominated? I'd love to know which one was THE WORST I made. How fabulous. I am pleased, though, to see that Destiny's Committee thread won. She should be proud of it. She won an award.

Anyway, I think even the GOOD awards can be bad. I always disagree with the nominees for "Smartest MoFo." Though some of them might show levels of intelligence.... I think there's smarter folks out there. Where's all my fabulous atheists who should be getting into a rage over the fact that God believing Yoda keeps winning Smartest MoFo? He may be smarter than a lot of other folks around here in some areas, but until he accepts that there's no free will, tsk tsk tsk, he's not the Smartest MoFo. To me it's akin to someone who thinks that babies are delivered by a FedEx man.

The whole awards ceremony itself is going to hurt people because a lot of people DON'T get nominated and don't win. So throwing out a couple of "bad" awards won't change much. At least the bad awards can be taken in a good way. You HAVE won an award, afterall. It means you're good at something, even if it's just the best at making a mess. You should be pushing for people to love their flaws, not hide them. "Real life" is already bad enough? Give me a break. Stop acting like this place needs to be a Band-Aid for the horrors we experience "in real life." This IS your real life. Everything you do on this forum is YOU. If you make the worst thread of the year, if you're the most controversial member, that's your life. God's writing it all down in the book, ain't that right, Yoda?

And Rodent -- it's your birthday -- take the damn day off.

Sexy, you should try making legitimately bad threads with a serious face, like your rival does.

So... just keep them as-is then.
I will say, though, that I hate "Most Improved." BUT -- why get rid of it? Someone else might love winning it. Even if I won it, it would be interesting to know why.

And I'd like to see different people win the awards instead of it always being the same person again and again. I found it refreshing that I didn't win Most Controversial again and JayDee wasn't the Best Reviewer again. In fact, for me, this was probably the best MoFies Ceremony yet -- the one we just did. As of right now, I'd be fine not winning or not even being nominated next year if it means brand new people can win awards.

This is my serious face.

I Am Rick Cottontree: The MoFo Quiz Goblin
That post I made in the 2015 ceremony with all those images... it got me thinking there should be placements rather than just nominees and winners.

I put up pictures of bronze, silver and gold trophies.

Might be worth discussing?

I encourage change to keep things fresh around here. To me, doing the MoFies every year, or The Top 100 MoFos, or even all these Countdowns and Hall of Fames.... it becomes a dull routine. You can't keep doing these things for decades. Eventually you have to find new stuff to do. Or else everyone's gonna get bored and pissed off and the whole forum will end in catastrophe. So I SUGGEST -- suggest -- the possibility of NOT even doing another MoFies next year. Let the Godoggo 2.0 of the future resurrect it in 10 years. To be like the Old School MoFos (and me, if I'm STILL around).

I once suggested -- and I think Destiny stole my idea for this and used it for the HOF's -- a COMMITTEE for the MoFies. Where a group of people decided on who should win what, then passed out the awards at a ceremony. No voting, just a committee that looked through things, talked, decided on winners. And made sure that people didn't keep winning the same thing every year.

Nobody likes this idea, but, it's an idea and it's there if you ever want it.

I don't think placements is really going to be worthwhile. Those are more for true competitions - things like track and field, fairs, etc. - rather than awards meant to recognize people's efforts and achievements. Most people don't keep the Mofies in mind when they're posting on the forum. They're not out to win something.

Also several categories had only two nominees this year anyway.

How about a "Make Your Own Award" MoFies?

Everyone (who wants to) could PM Rodent and tell him a category that they wish to win. They could come up with OUTRAGEOUS categories, funny ones, whatever. Then Rodent could make up all of the awards, put their names on them and everything.

Then -- we just have a silly, relaxing afternoon where all of these awards get revealed. Nobody reveals what "award" they made up to anyone else. We just see it all revealed at the show. There can even be pauses -- first we show off what the award is called, then we reveal who "won" it (who came up with the award category for themselves). Rodent could even find presenters. It could all just be for fun. Something to laugh at. Not something to take all seriously with voting and everything. Just something different. And if people want to award themselves with the same category, so what? Let it happen. There could be FIVE Best Movie Reviewers. You know, it could just be something really silly and different. Just sh*t to do, you know? Just to have fun.

On that note, I am A Ray of Sunshine, damn it. You people just don't see it.
Now, see, that's why I think a "Make Your Own" MoFies could be funny. Miss Vicky could award herself with something so NOT like her. It would just be a goofy thing to have fun with.
