The votes are in, and "The Departed" is the number one flick of the year according to the User Tomato Awards. Martin Scorsese‘s engrossing crime drama topped such user faves as "Little Miss Sunshine," "Casino Royale," "The Prestige," and "Children of Men."
"The Departed," starring Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Matt Damon, is an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture, but for those in RT land, it’s already number one. User hotpinksky wrote, "This is the best $9 + you will spend this year."
"The results are in… and the RT users love you guys."
Indie fave and fellow Best Picture nominee "Little Miss Sunshine" came in at number two. This tale of a dysfunctional family on the road, starring Greg Kinnear, Steve Carell, and Abigail Breslin, was a surprise hit this summer, and obviously struck a chord with RT users. As user notquitesane wrote, "I absolutely loved, loved, loved this movie."
How ’bout a round of applause for those RT users?
