2018 Snubby Awards: The Winners

Sorry for the two-week break; I got caught up with work last Wednesday/Thursday, and by Friday figured I might as well wait until the Snubbies’ usual mid-week time slot came around. Besides, we’re closer to that other, lesser awards show.

Thanks to everyone for voting; we had a ton of responses and a bunch of close races. Rather than type out every single movie and vote total, I’m just going to link to the Snubby Spreadsheet, which has vote totals for every Snubby Awards from 1968-2018. Instead, I’ll list the winners and any close runners-up. See you next year, unless I get my shit together to post the Tubbies for next year’s Emmys. (Totally blew past the Grammys, but we might try the I’ma Let You Finish Awards one of these years).
