Announcing the Hulu Award for "Best Family Movie"

And the Hulie goes to....

The Karate Kid!

Even though that clip is from the cartoon, don't be confused-- the winning movie was the actual original movie starring Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, and Elisabeth Shue.

Now, who would have thought that "The Karate Kid" would have been the first piece of content on Hulu to earn two Hulies?

Truth be told, the Family Movie category was a little weak during this first year. Next year, as Hulu broadens its content base, the competition should be much stiffer. That's not to take anything away from The Karate Kid, by the way. Just some of the other movies in the running.

After 20,000 audience votes, the audience favorite was "Jumanji," with a rocking 48% of the vote.

The only other nominee was "Dragonheart."
