Hello! I don't understand why the Spanish "Yoga" awards are listed/acknowledged by IMDB since they appear to be very biased/random and simply ruin filmmakers' awards pages, among the "awarded" acclaimed Oscar-winning/nominated works are: American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Skyfall, The Tree of Life, The Fountain, Frida, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, The Matrix, The Terminator, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, A Beautiful Mind, etc. http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0003647/o...

Hi Jana,

Unfortunately although we understand your position this event is eligible under our event criteria https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/events and is a legitimate awards ceremony that can be compared to the Razzies http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0000558/ and The Stinkers Bad Movie Awards http://www.imdb.com/event/ev0003171/

Regards,
Will

“ IMPORTANT: We realize that there are already many Events listed on IMDb that do not meet this eligibility criteria. We apologize for the inconsistency - the above criteria are a temporary measure until we schedule development work to improve the Event request/creation pipeline and storage/management of the associated Awards data.”

It’s long past time to scrap the crap. The “yoga awards” are an abomination, and should be removed from this platform. Most films winning this so-called “award” don’t even qualify for the award’s own stated intent. To continue to list the award here on IMDb is an insult to the site and to all those associated with it.

Hope it can get deleted over time...Seeing so many great performances/movies listed there is so annoying!

This is Ridiculous! The Yoga Awards are the polar opposite of legitimate. The Yoga Awards are a disgusting insult to the Bio page of IMDB.com. What kind of unqualified, villainous ass would give the 1992 Worst Movie Award to Penny Marshall for 1990's Awakenings; one of Robert De Niro and Robin Williams best performances. Either these Yoga Awards are meant to be taken as the exact opposite of what they say or I woke up in some Bizarro Opposite Moron Universe where it's normal for these absolutely MORONIC Awards to appear on IMDB.com and tarnish its reputation by allowing these insulting, disgusting and insanely inaccurate awards to stain the pages of filmmakers and stars. The Yogas are a vile and loathsome affront to the intellect of anyone who knows the slightest bit about films.
