Rotten Tomatoes™ Announces 2012 Golden Tomato Award Winners; Argo, Directed By Ben Affleck, Wins In Wide Release

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rotten Tomatoes™, the web's leading aggregator of reviews from top movie critics, today announced the recipients of its annual Golden Tomato Awards - honoring the best-reviewed films of 2012 according to critics ( entire list follows). 

The Golden Tomato for the best-reviewed wide release of 2012 is presented to Warner Bros. Pictures' Argo.  According to the Tomatometer, which measures the percentage of positive reviews from Rotten Tomatoes™ critics, Argo received a 96% positive rating based on 253 reviews.  Jafar Panahi's documentary This is Not a Film is presented the Golden Tomato Award for best-reviewed film in limited release.  This is Not a Film received a 99% positive rating based on a total of 146 reviews.

Argo director/ star Ben Affleck will appear with Rotten Tomatoes' Editor-in-Chief Matt Atchity and Senior Editor Grae Drake on a special Golden Tomato Awards edition of SiriusXM's live, call-in Rotten Tomatoes™ Radio show airing today from 6:00 – 7:00 pm ET on SiriusXM Stars Too (channel 104).  

Atchity comments, "For the first time ever, the Golden Tomato celebration extends to the satellite radio airwaves.  Movie fans should tune in to hear a special interview with Ben Affleck as we discuss his critically acclaimed film Argo, the year in Tomatometer scores and which films were fresh or rotten.  We encourage movie lovers everywhere to seek out any of the films on this list that they haven't yet had a chance to watch.  Among them are some great titles that may not be in the spotlight during Oscar season, but won over critics throughout the year."

The Rotten Tomatoes™ Radio Golden Tomato Awards show will be available on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smart phones and other mobile devices, or online at
