The Least Interesting Celebrated 2011 Films

A list of movies that appeared on numerous Oscar prediction lists or critical "Top 10s" that, for whatever reason, most people have no desire to see. Vote up the films you care about the least on the list, and if I've left off a movie you've heard a lot about but don't care if you ever see, enter it in the space at the bottom of the page.

Every fall and winter, when the movie awards season race begins in earnest, you start hearing about all kinds of independent films, foreign films, art house films and even major releases that thus far had flown under the radar. Many of these are films that simply don't open until December or January, but which will have coordinated Oscar campaigns. Others are movies that were hits on the festival circuit, and have thus been picked early as possible award contenders by pundits, bloggers and critics. Still others are just films that built up their own reputation by playing on a few screens, and snuck their way on to some writers' "Best of the Year" lists. Others yet are the result of straight-up marketing campaigns, studios and financiers paying tastemakers and influencers to talk up their films in the hopes of getting some award recognition.

Often, this "buzz" will bring deserving attention on to great movies that may not have otherwise found an audience. 2011's "The Artist" - a foreign-made silent romance - is an unlikely hit, but still scored with Americans after winning some major early awards and generating positive reviews in selected markets.

But other times, this buzz leads to movies no one would normally care to see getting an undue amount of attention come December. This list collects these movies from 2011, the ones you'd never think of actually paying money for, but that you still end up hearing about all the time because they are considered "award-worthy." Bah humbug.
