The 2021 Mid-Year Random Awards: A Celebration of Bathroom Fights, Sweaters, and Pistachio Eating

July 12, 2021

The Movies, Films and Flix Random Awards are back! Since 2010, we’ve loved handing out random awards because they award moments and movies that typically wouldn’t win anything (we also love randomness). Sit back, relax and enjoy the 2021 mid-year Random Awards.

Best Album Covers Award – The Edgar Wright directed The Sparks Brothers is one of my favorite films of 2021. It also features the best album covers. 

Best Baby Gang Award  – You will love watching Little Noi, Dyan, Pan and Uka engage in some legit shenanigans in Raya and the Last Dragon.

Best Moment Involving a Motorcycle Landing on the Wing of a Plane Award Infinite is an insane film that features a samurai sword wielding Mark Wahlberg using a motorcycle to jump on the wing of a cargo airplane.

Best Tunnel Award – Godzilla vs. Kong features a tunnel (not the Hollow Earth tunnel) that goes from Florida to Hong Kong. It’s insane, and must’ve cost trillions of dollars. 

Best Bathroom Fight Award Nicolas Cage fights an evil animatronic gorilla in Willy’s Wonderland. It’s amazing. 

Best Sedative Bot Fight Award – The Alejandra Aja directed Oxygen features Mélanie Laurent wrestling with a sedative bot that looks like a robot snake (it’s quite scary). 

Best Sweater Award – Once again, The Quiet Place franchise features some glorious sweaters. This time Djimon Hounsou gets to rock a sweet sweater.

Best Bit About Posing Award – Watching Florence Pugh and Scarlett Johansson argue about “superhero posing” is wonderful in Black Widow. 

Best Demián Bichir Hat Award- Chaos Walking is bonkers, but it features a great Bichir hat. 

Best Alien Squish AwardThe Tomorrow War features a glorious alien squish noise. It’s wonderful.

Best Cardigan in a Pool Hall Award – Jason Statham wears a cardigan in a pool hall in Wrath of Man. It’s weird, and awesome.

Best Pistachio Eating Award Without Remorse features Michael B. Jordan eating pistachios for a long time. I couldn’t find a clip. Watch the movie, you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Best Magnets AwardFast 9: The Fast Saga features A LOT of magnet usage. 

David Cross (@ItsMeDavidCross)- Award Wieners Movies Review Podcast – Best Use of the Term “Hunky Boys” AwardPsycho Goreman is an insane film that features a giant murderer talking about hunky boys. It’s very funny.

Adam Hodgins – GoFigure Youtube Show – Best Picture About a Tournament, But Not Actually Featuring a Tournament Award Mortal Kombat has way too much setup, and no tournament. It’s odd.

Aaron Neuwirth (@AaronsPS4) – Out Now With Aaron and Abe Podcast –  Best Drum Solo Award – Stevie Wonder has a wonderful drum solo in Summer of Soul watch it. 

Zanandi (@Zanandi on Twitter) – Best That’s Not What A BREAD SLICER is For Award –  Fear Street Part One: 1994 features a head being sliced into many pieces. It’s gnarly.

Jonny Numb – The Last Knock Podcast (@JohnnyNumb)Most Dynamic Duo Deserving of their Own Franchise Award: Barb & Star (from BARB & STAR GO TO VISTA DEL MAR) are the best, and they need more movies.

Jay Cluitt (@LifevsFilm) – Deep Blue Sea – The Podcast – Best Furby Attack Award The Mitchells vs. the Machines features a glorious moment that involves a gigantic Furby attacking the hero family.

Best Use of a Time Loop to Solve Problems AwardThe Map of Tiny Perfect Things might be the most underappreciated movie of 2021, it needs a bigger audience. Watch it on Amazon Prime.

I Need a Herd of Sheep-Fish AwardLuca features the best sea sheep (AKA fish) of 2021. You will love them. 

Effing Kitty Bracelet AwardNobody is the best action film of 2021, and it proves that you should never steal a kitty bracelet. 

Sign Me Up for the Town Tour Award  – Werewolves Within is the best horror comedy of 2021, and you will love watching Sam Richardson battle werewolves and crazy townsfolk.

Seagull in the Sand Award – Jamie Dornan deserves an Oscar for his singing in Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar.

I Just Want My Mom Award – Watch Plan B on Hulu, it features two very likable teenagers engaging in some fun R-rated antics. 

Best and Most Precise Spoon Placement Award – Paul Walter Hauser is so good in Cruella. How good? He’s so good his spoon placement is inspired. 

Swimming Pool Musical Number for the Ages Award In The Heights features a gigantic musical number that takes place at a pool. It’s wildly impressive and must’ve taken lots of work. 

Most Epic Basement Witches Lair Award The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is home to a beautifully massive villainous lair. You will love it.

Best Kills in a Time Loop Movie (Bryce Mitchell) – The Frank Grillo starring action film Boss Level features some of the cheekiest murders you’ll ever see in a time loop movie.
