The IMPAwards Winners: The Best & Worst Posters of 2009
by Alex Billington

Every year the IMPAwards movie poster website (the best database for posters) hosts the Internet Movie Poster Awards, their own "best of the year" awards, that have become the most popular awards for movie posters on the web. The "Imp" as he's known has made his picks for 2009's best & worst posters and they're picks as always. What I love about these awards is that they have numerous categories in order to feature a lot of great posters. But the true king this year, the Best Poster of the Year (for 2009), was the beautiful UK poster for Terry Gilliam's Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. Read on to see some of 2009's big winners!
You can find a complete list of winners and nominees right here since there are quite a few more we didn't feature. Other big winners this year include the Antichrist scissor poster which won for Creepiest Poster, Coraline's alphabet poster series won for Best Character Poster Set and The Girlfriend Experience's tagline: "See It With Someone You F**k" won the Best Serious Tagline award. I'm not sure if I can totally agree with the "Imp" this year, but he has chosen some great looking posters, that's for sure. My vote still goes to all of the Kick-Ass posters for just always being awesome! Which posters were your favorite from 2009?
Here's right off my mind : Worst poster for me is "My best friend's girl" http://www.impawards.com/2008/posters/my_best_friends_girl.jpg this makes "My one and only" looks awesome. Let me get back after some considerations.

Is it brave because it says "From the director of Juno"? zing

Overall 2009 film poster design has been a little meh!

I't only early, but i can see this 'Inception' poster getting some recognition for next years awards. http://www.impawards.com/2010/inception_ver2.html Also i agree that 'My best friends girl' poster is terrible. I don't know how that got through marketing

#2 I actually thought Juno was a good movie....but I dont understand why its the bravest poster...I feel Up in the air got a lot of good critique and praise it didnt deserve.
