Rotten Tomatoes has been nominated for a Webby Award for our work in social media in the category of Film and TV – and we want you to help us win (or, at the very least, avoid a Rotten last place).
The Webbys honor “excellence in social media accounts across all platforms” and we’ve been nominated for our social media accounts dedicated to television shows and film. It’s the first year for the category, and we’re honored to be named among nominees including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and the social campaign for Deadpool 2 (we’re coming for you, @VancityReynolds).
The nomination recognizes the work of our social team and the editorial and production teams who support them. They’re the people who show up to work every day to ensure our fans are the first in the world to have the latest Tomatometer scores, Certified Fresh announcements, news, trailers, and more, and to ensure our fans get it all in the most informative, innovative, and entertaining way possible.

Some of the highlights of what you get when you subscribe and interact with Rotten Tomatoes on social media include our exclusive video Tomatometer reveals, pushed out the moment a buzzy movie or TV show gets a score, as well as our beloved “quote video” series, for which we home in on a favorite movie scene to mark the film’s anniversary.
We also go deep, serving RT fans with exclusive interview content, presented in super digestible nuggets – check out this clip of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige talking about Josh Brolin’s Thanos performance – and by using the Tomatometer to produce enlightening infographics, everything from director and actor scorecards to franchise rankings by Tomatometer. We’ve also got your set for all your news needs with our Instagram Daily Ketchup.
And we’ve got you covered for movie and TV-related GIFs – lots of GIFs.

It’s pretty simple. There are two awards given in each category: one is chosen by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, the other is chosen by the fans. The latter is where you come in.
Winners will be announced on April 23, and then honored a few weeks later at a fancy awards dinner in New York hosted by Jenny Slate (Venom, Big Mouth). We would like to attend that dinner – so please, get voting.
