The Redbox Movie Awards are awards given annually for the most rented movies in the United States.[1] These awards are organized and presented by Redbox, a subsidiary of Outerwall Inc. The first Redbox Movie Awards were given in 2011.[2]

Nomination, votes and “ceremony”[edit]

Redbox nominates and determines the most popular rental movies of the year by considering two factors:

  1. the annual popularity statistics of rental movies
  2. a special “Redbox Movie Awards poll” that attained, for instance, 30,000 respondents in 2012.[3] The voters were invited with the help of contests organised by Redbox.[4]

Categories[edit]

The Redbox Movie Awards are presented for many achievements (top movie, best actress, best actor etc.). In all genre categories presented, the recipients of the awards are the directors.[5]

Most rented action film[edit]

Most rented comedy film[edit]

Most rented drama[edit]

Most rented horror film[edit]

Most rented family movie[edit]

Criticism[edit]

Critics have asserted that:

  • The Awards honor bad taste.[7][8] For instance, Adam Sandler received a lifetime achievement award in 2012 for being the most rented actor in the history of Redbox.[9]
  • Being the “most rented” means “being the most rented among the customer base of Redbox”: Redbox traditionally targets families with children, and many boxes are located right outside of McDonald's restaurants.[9]
  • Movies that roll out earlier have a bigger chance of winning the award because they have “more time in kiosks to be rented over and over".[10]
  • Movies of those studios that have an agreement with Redbox – and allow their DVDs be rented at the same time as they go on sale – seem to have an advantage compared to the movies of other studios.[10]
