Posted by: Mike on Jan 31st, 2009 Leave a Comment »

The Snobbies are officially under way!  They were launched at 12:01AM EST this morning, and have had great response thus far.  Be sure to cast your vote today!


I’ve been feverishly typing away all morning, making sure all the nominees are entered right, and the voting code is working.  As of now, it seems to be a-okay, but only time will tell.

At 12:01AM, we’ll be opening up the voting for this year’s Snobbies.  This year’s prizes are bigger than ever (thanks to some of our awesome sponsors), and we hope someone wins every last thing!

This year’s prize list:

Grand Prize: Free movies, large popcorn, and large soda for a year. (One movie per week) – Retail Value: $936
First Prize: Sony PlayStation 3 and 6 Blu-ray movies of choice. Retail Value: $580
Second Prize: 16GB Apple iPhone. Service, taxes, and other fees not included. Only the phone. Retail Value: $299
Third Prize: 3 DVDs of your choice. Retail Value: $60

Rules can be read once you start your vote, if you’re curious as to how the whole she-bang works.  Be sure to cast your vote.  Voting closes March 31st, 2009 at 11:59PM EST, so be sure to vote.  In today’s tough economy, who wouldn’t want to go to the movies for free, for a whole year? And have someone buy them popcorn and soda? That’s an unbeatable deal!

If you’ve got any questions, feel free to e-mail us before casting your vote.  info@moviesnobs.net
