"The Incredibles" and "Sideways" prove to be the freshest of 2004’s movies, as they take top honors in the 6th Annual Golden Tomato Awards. The scores for Golden Tomato Awards are calculated using each movie’s Tomatometer score and the Bayesian* formula to account for varying number of reviews. When all the numbers are in, "The Incredibles," Pixar Studios’ latest animated movie, is Rottentomatoes.com’s pick for the best reviewed title in the Wide Release category. With a score of 87.77, it bested runner-ups "Spider-Man 2" (85.83) and "Hero" (85.14) for this top honor.

In the Limited Release category (movies distributed in 500 or less theaters), Alexander Payne’s "Sideways" grabbed the top prize. With a score of 86.60, it beat out second place "Before Sunset" (84.00) and third place "Maria Full of Grace" (83.50). "Million Dollar Baby" came in eighth with a score of 81.58.

For the individual genres, "Spider-Man 2" won for Action/Adventure, "The Incredibles" for Animation, "Mean Girls" for Comedies, "Super Size Me" for Documentaries, "Sideways" again for Dramas, "Hero" for Foreign, "Shaun of the Dead" for Horror, "Two Brothers" for Kids/Family, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" for Romance, "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" for Sci-Fi/Fantasy, and "Collateral" for Thriller.
