It is officially November 22, 2012, Thanksgiving in the US, and one more item we can be thankful for is that now only one year remains until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters!
With the release of the motion poster earlier this week and filming moving to Hawaii, time is slowly tick tocking away and we are eager to see what this final countdown brings.
It will all begin at midnight, one year from now! Where will you be and what are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments.read more
The Hunger Games may have taken home four awards from the MTV Movie Awards this past weekend, but the fandom has a few other honors to bestow on the film, cast and production team. Perri Nemiroff from Movies.com spearheaded this movement and got the fansites creating our own Hunger Games inspired awards. From Best Facial Hair Performance to Best use of Nightlock and more, these awards are as fun as they are unusual. We’ve included a few of our favorites in this post, but you’ll definitely want to check out the full listing at Movies.com.
Best Use of a Lizard – Theresa of Down With The Capitol
This award goes to Clove for her brilliant use of a lizard for target practice. While sitting around the campfire during a quiet moment in the Games, this District 2 Tribute keeps her skills (and her knives) sharp. This was definitely one of the key moments that showed Clove’s true character, her ruthlessness and desire to win.
Best Intimidating Stare Down – Kait of Victor’s Village
This award goes to the team of Katniss Everdeen and President Snow for staring each other down so hard, they almost made us pee ourselves. Very few people can have a full exchange of emotion in a single glance, but as Snow crowned Katniss victor, they did just that. You knew President Snow was out to get Katniss and you knew she was ready to take him on. We could practically hear the blood pumping through our veins!
Best Use of Nightlock – Sheila of HG Girl on Fire
This award goes to President Snow for his brilliant use of Nightlock. When Seneca Crane was escorted by a peacekeeper to a private room and left with a bowl of Nightlock with the understanding that he is to take it in order to execute himself, it was a mind-blowing moment. Watching Seneca’s look of shock and resignation was the moment that you really got a sense of President Snow’s cruelty and, ironically, his sense of humor.
Best Facial Hair Performance – Hamilton of My Hunger Games
In the history of film, has there ever been an example of a beard pulling off such an inspired performance? Seneca Crane’s beard may just inspire other mustaches, goatees, and whiskers to follow in its steps and enter show business as a star instead of just a background player. From the moment it showed up on Wes Bentley’s face in the Hunger Games trailer, it was obvious a star had been born and it’s time that is given the recognition it deserves!
Check out this week’s Hunger Games Countdown at Movies.com for the rest, including Best Burner Food Toss, Best use of Fire, Best Hallucination Simulation and more.
