Golden Tomatoes honor praised films

'Ratatouille,' 'Once' take top honors

“Ratatouille” and “Once” warmed the hearts of moviegoers and critics alike – and now, they’ve taken top honors in the ninth annual Golden Tomato Awards.

The Golden Tomato Awards pay tribute to the best-reviewed films of the previous year as determined by the Web site RottenTomatoes.com, which compiles reviews from print, online and broadcast film critics to measure the percentage of favorable critiques.

“Ratatouille,” the animated gem about a rat with unexpected culinary skills, earned a 96 percent ranking on the site’s Tomatometer. The Irish romance “Once,” which won for best limited release film and best musical, scored 98 percent.

“Atonement” scored the Golden Tomato for romance. “The Bourne Ultimatum” won in the action/adventure category, “Juno” was the best comedy and “No Country for Old Men” the best thriller.

“Away From Her” was named best drama, “Sicko” won best documentary and “Grindhouse” was the top horror flick. “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” took a Tomato for science-fiction/fantasy and “Enchanted” won best family film. “The Host” was the top foreign film.

The Moldy Tomato – awarded to the worst-reviewed film of the year – was thrown at “Because I Said So.”
