Movie Mom I’d Most Like to Date

Fandango, the nation’s leading moviegoer destination, has unveiled the results of its first annual Fandango Fan Favorite Awards, honoring the year’s most memorable movie achievements.

The results speak to an unusual year at the movies, while honoring winners like John Travolta (“Favorite Drag Performance”), Johnny Depp (“Top Screen Psycho”) and Katherine Heigl (“Movie Mom I’d Most Like to Date”) in a variety of not-quite traditional categories.
