Fan Favorite Movies 2020

Sure, Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland may be racking up all the accolades en route to a potential Best Picture win at the Academy Awards, and yes, Bad Boys for Life may have dominated the box office in 2020, but neither of those movies even cracked the top 10 in our fan poll. And while you will see a few Oscar contenders here, none of them could overtake the powerful fandom of Taylor Swift, who ensured that the documentary about their favorite pop star, Miss Americana, took home the top prize.

The post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure Love and Monsters also had a strong showing, following closely behind Miss Americana, but the rest of the titles, from Pixar’s Soul to the surprise horror hit The Invisible Man to Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn joint Birds of Prey, failed to come anywhere near the top two.

The order below reflects the number of total votes cast for each movie by users in a poll that ran on RT from March 10 to April 13.
