We cordially invite you to the 25th anniversary of the movie awards show dedicated to bringing you the worst cinema has to offer: The Smithee Awards. To put this momentous occasion in perspective, here are some of the events that took place the same year Mr. Smithee and The Sultan looked at each other and said “There ought to be an awards show for this.”: Russia held its first free election and the populace voted Boris Yeltsin into office, a dead sea scroll was unveiled, Jeffrey Dahmer got caught snacking, Linux was developed and the internet was born. 1991 was a good year (well, mostly).
Please join us for our gala Silver Anniversary celebration at one of the showings listed below. We will bring the usual 19 categories and fill them up with five clips for each category. All we ask is that you show up and have a good time. And vote. Voting could mean the difference between a clip becoming but a footnote in Smithee history or having that clip move on to Mega-Meta-5 or possibly Ultra-Mega-Meta fame. There’s something to think about – 25 years of Smithees means that we will soon have 5 Mega-Meta winners to pit against each other. This is Smithee history in the making, come be a part of it!
The Smith-ka-teers: Bryan, Greg, Matt, Kevin, Rhana, Jenna, Jeannette and Amy.
