QUICK TAKES

January 22, 2008|From the Associated Press

"Ratatouille" and "Once" warmed the hearts of moviegoers and critics alike -- and now, they've taken top honors in the ninth annual Golden Tomato Awards.

The Golden Tomato Awards pay tribute to the best-reviewed films of the previous year as determined by the website Rotten Tomatoes.com, which compiles reviews from print, online and broadcast film critics to measure the percentage of favorable critiques.

"Ratatouille," the animated gem about a rat with unexpected culinary skills, earned a 96% ranking on the site's Tomatometer. The Irish romance "Once," which won for best limited release film and best musical, scored 98%.

The Moldy Tomato -- awarded to the worst-reviewed film of the year -- was thrown at "Because I Said So."
