As well as this year’s greatest movies, there is always an category for “Most Anticipated Movie” and next year, we have some pretty big movies coming up. The winner for most-anticipated movie was none other than the final story of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises.” The award was accepted by Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (John Blake) – check out the acceptance speech below.
With movies like “The Amazing Spider-Man,” “The Avengers” and more, I truly see “The Dark Knight Rises” as 2012’s biggest movie of them all so it truly deserved that award.
Among the winners that were my favorites were obviously the finished journey of the world of Harry Potter, who won the most awards of them all this year, and Chris Evans. Even though I was hoping Tom Welling would win, Evans deserved it just as much as everyone in the category of Best Superhero.
Overall, it was nice to see an award when not just all the vampire franchises (“Twilight” and “Vampire Diaries,” for example) were getting all the spotlight.
