Best Movie 2020

It's no secret that Hollywood was hit hard by the 2020 pandemic. With theaters closed, film production came to a halt and many movies had to look for alternative outlets such as streaming on their sister company channels. The lack of big budget competition paved the way for films shot specifically for streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu to jump into the competition as well, giving our viewers a more diverse set of titles to vote on this year for the Best Film of 2020, casting their ballots for such fare as Dolittle, Love and Monsters, and Mulan.

Netflix lands in the bronze spot this year, netting 14.66% of the vote with their Victorian action adventure, Enola Holmes, starring Millie Bobbie Brown as the younger sister to the famous detective Sherlock -- played here by a mustachioed Henry Cavill -- and the standoffish Mycroft.

Coming in second is Warner Brothers' much anticipated sequel and the latest entry into the DC Extended Universe, Wonder Woman 1984, starring Gal Gadot as the beautiful and powerful Amazon Warrior. The film lassoed 15.52% of all votes cast by our readers.

Racing to a first place finish, however, is a superhero of a different sort -- the azure accelerator from another world, Sonic the Hedgehog, who's apparently so fast he even beat the pandemic to make it into theaters before the Hollywood halts began. While this no doubt gave the film a bit of an edge, there's little denying that  viewer support and Sony's determination to listen to Sonic's fanbase helped make this film grab the top spot, with 18.97% of the ballot box.
