The Golden Raspberry Awards - 31st Annual Razzie nominations

As has been shown in recent years, I think the Razzies are getting away from the real spirit of the awards. Instead of sticking with truly awful movies, in a lot of cases they're just nominating movies that are very popular.

http://razzies.com/history/31stNoms.asp
Quote:
2010 was a year when those obnoxious “surcharges” for 3-D glasses boosted movie studios’ bottom lines, while actual attendance dropped once again. It was a year when most of what Hollywood released was either a remake, a “reboot” a “re-imagining”...or an outright rip-off. In other words, it was a banner year for only one of Tinsel Town’s best-known award shows...the one that dis-honors Worst Achievements in Film. Voting members of The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation have sifted through the cinematic rubble of last year and selected nominees for The 31st Annual RAZZIE® Awards, with “winners” set to be announced in ceremonies at Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre at 7:30pm/PST on Saturday, February 26 – the now traditional Night Before the Oscars.

Leading the pack among this year’s RAZZIE® contenders are the third installment of an enormously successful franchise (with a berry opinionated fan-base) and one of 2010’s biggest critical disasters, with 9 nods each. RAZZIE® Repeat Offender M. Night Shyamalan “re-imagined” the faux-anime TV series The Last Airbender into a jumbled, jump-cut mess of a movie that fans of the TV show hated even more than critics did (if that’s even possible!). In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, the film is up for Worst Remake, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble (the entire cast) and a brand-new RAZZIE® category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D. Neck-and-neck with Airbender in the RAZZIE® race (while taking a decidedly bigger bite it at the box office) is last year’s 4th biggest money-maker, Twilight Saga: Eclipse, also with 9 shots at taking home spray-painted gold. All three of the principal characters of Eclipse are individually nominated for their acting, and the entire cast is also up for Worst Screen Ensemble. Rounding out the Worst Picture list are the aptly titled Twilight “parody” Vampires Suck, the bling-obsessed superslick chick flick Sex & The City #2 and the decidedly un-romantic rom-com/revenge fantasy The Bounty Hunter.

Other notable nominees include a trio of long established divas, Cher, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand all vying to be named Worst Supporting Actress, ’tween bong enthusiast Miley Cyrus nominated for Worst Actress, and Jack Black, Gerard Butler and Ashton Kutcher up against Twilight’s Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson for Worst Actor. Links to a complete list of nominees are on the right.

The RAZZIES® were created in 1980 as a logical antidote to Tinsel Town’s annual glut of self-congratulatory awards by John Wilson, author of The Official Razzie Movie Guide and Everything I Know I Learned at the Movies. Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 637 voters in 46 U.S. states and 17 foreign countries. Electronic voting and certification of this year’s Final RAZZIE® Ballots will be handled by Vote-Now.com. The Barnsdall Gallery Theatre is a facility of the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs.

For more info on the awards’ history, please visit the official RAZZIE web site, follow the RAZZIES on Twitter, or tune in to the just-launched RAZZIE® Channel on YouTube.

Nice cheap shot at Stallone, who the Razzies have loved to lambast for years.

Alba doesn't deserve one for The Killer Inside Me. I actually thought she was very good in that.

Stallone deserved it this year.

I was hoping for more variety. There were plenty more stinkers than the four they decided to pick on.

Re: The Golden Raspberry Awards - 31st Annual Razzie nominations

Saw 7 was robbed. I just watched it and it definitely deserves a nomination for Worst Picture. I haven't seen any of the films nominated.

They also dropped the ball by not nominating Harrison Ford for Extraordinary Measures.

Saw 7 was robbed, I agree.

That said, while they stuck with big movies these actually were some of the worst movies of the year. But still a surprisingly boring lineup.

Very predictable, and not at all clever.

Apparently Stallone had something to do with gay porn in 1983.

I'm gonna go pour bleach in my eyes now.

Re: The Golden Raspberry Awards - 31st Annual Razzie nominations

People really don't know what that is? It's a still from Stayin' Alive.

As for these awards, they should have put that Tron thing in every category.

Re: The Golden Raspberry Awards - 31st Annual Razzie nominations

I always get a good laugh at Stallone's cameo (a la Hitchcock) in Stayin' Alive...it perfectly fits his ego:

He should be in line for some sort of lifetime achievement award by now, Copland excepted.

I'm surprised Jonah Hex didn't get nominated for Worst Picture.

Re: The Golden Raspberry Awards - 31st Annual Razzie nominations

Yeah, they make too many nominations based on reputation... they will automatically nominate anyone who is a walking punchline. I mean, you've got Miley, Streisand, Stallone, Schneider, Cher, Liza... Not to say some (or even most) aren't deserving of the dishonor, but it always just feels like a kneejerk reaction - like the Razzie crew starts the process off by saying "What ridiculous celebrities appeared in movies this year?" It's just a lazy formula at this point, ironic because the Razzies typically go after lazy formulaic films.

Stallone did a biopic about Aaron Copland??? Awesome! Did Stallone play Copland or Leonard Bernstein?

Re: The Golden Raspberry Awards - 31st Annual Razzie nominations

Valentine's Day should've been nominated in every category. It was absolutely the worst movie of the year, and one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Are you saying The Bounty Hunter, The Last Airbender, etc. weren't truly awful?

I didn't mind the movie. I thought it was pretty good. She keeps telling me that that's because I never read the books. She hates how they made Jacob act like he's turning into the Hulk.

You mean to say he's supposed to turn into a pussy? Is that what the books do to that character?
