The 14th Annual Kick Ass Awards

It’s a tradition going back to before Everything Action was Everything Action (it was the Kick-Ass Movie Podcast) as we celebrate the best (and worst) of last year with the 14th annual Kick Ass Awards.  Before the Oscars possibly give Joker all their trophies, we have to award categories like Ass Kicker of the Year, the Jason Statham Award for Excellence in Stathaming and, of course, Kick-Ass Movie of the Year.  Read on to see the entire list of winners.
