The 11th annual Golden Tomato Awards have been announced, and particularly for the film at the sourest end of the spectrum, the results are pretty squishy.

But first, let us have the positive news.

RottenTomatoes.com, the film-review aggregator that distributes the honors, declared that 'Up,' the Pixar film, captured the Golden Tomato for Best Reviewed Wide Release, with an impressive 98 percent of the site's reviews landing in thumbs-up territory.

Meanwhile, 'The Hurt Locker,' the war-tinged Kathryn Bigelow film that is starting to give 'Up in the Air' serious competition this awards season, won the Golden Tomato for Best Reviewed Limited Release with a 97 percent positive rating. This was an eye-opening category: 'The Hurt Locker,' was followed by 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil,' 'Afghan Star,' 'The Cove,' 'The Beaches of Agnes,' 'In the Loop,' 'An Education,' 'Food, Inc.,' 'Goodbye Solo' and 'Burma VJ.'

Now we come to the most important selection from the stinky-fruit aisle. Down at the bottom of the barrel is the not-so-coveted Moldy Tomato Award, which goes to the worst-reviewed film of 2009. And the loser is: 'Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li,' adapted from the once popular (and perhaps soon to be less popular) video game, with a very craptastic 4 percent fresh rating.
