The review-aggregating website Rotten Tomatoes has performed the ultimate review aggregation of 2019 and determined that the top two films of the year were Avengers: Endgame (the top “wide release”) and Parasite (the top “limited release”). So there is one thing — maybe the only thing — those two films have in common.

The so-called “Golden Tomato Awards” are determined by the site by using the “Tomatometer score for movies and TV shows in a category and rank by Adjusted Score, which uses a weighted formula that accounts for the variation in the number of reviews when comparing the movies or shows.” Other winners for 2019 include Toy Story 4 for best directorial debut and best animated movie, Us as best horror movie, Apollo 11 for best documentary, Watchmen for best new TV show, Fleabag for best returning TV show.

The full list of winners are below. Congrats to them all for their victories, which will ensure no one pelts them with actual rotten tomatoes any time soon.
