Biggest, Mostest, and Other Trivia for the 2013 Awards Season

  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug received 12 nominations, making it the most nominated film of the 2013 Cosmique Movie Awards and the third most nominated film in a single year for Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth films. (Return of the King received 26 nominations and The Two Towers received 21, while The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey received 11. The Fellowship of the Ring also received 11 nominations the year it was released, but with three Lifetime Achievement nominations it now has a total of 15 nods.)
