Re: The 29th Annual Razzie Award Nominations

How does Speed Racer qualify for "Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel Nominees"? It doesn't fall into any of those categories. If the category was "TV Adaption", then it could qualify.

Are you looking for logic in the Razzies?

I've only seen 4 of the movies nominated this year, kinda proud of that.

Jessica Alba actually wasn't that bad in The Eye remake....
Ben Kingsley in War Inc? C'mon now....I haven't seen The Wackness yet....
Leelee Sobieski actually wasn't that bad in 88 Minutes....
Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull didn't deserve one either....
I was really let down by it but c'mon it wasn't that bad....

Amazing that the piece of crap that is The Spirit didn't get any Razzie nominations.

Pacino was bad in 88 Minutes, it was like watching a zombie
As for Leelee Sobieski...I would rather listen to her read poetry then watch her performance again.
Indy 4 was that bad and deserves to be nominated

It isn't a show so much as just a short conference-style presentation, possibly with a power point presentation.

You're missing the point of the Razzies. It isn't about what the worst film or worst performance. It is about the mainstream movies that were bad and the famous actors that were in bad movies. Indiana Jones didn't get nominated because it was the worst film of the year, it got nominated because it was a huge disappointment (subjective, of course, but it is a widely held opinion).

^ Not after last year's kick-ass Rambo he doesn't.

Now if he makes a sequel to Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot.... then we have a problem.

Re: The 29th Annual Razzie Award Nominations

i think their hatred of all things Paris is why she "won" for supporting actress in Repo, cause she's actually very tollerable in that movie

At this point they're giving awards to Paris and Uwe because they really can't think of anybody else to give awards to. Kinda like the Oscars but replace those two with Holocaust and movies where at least 2 people cry. Oh, and she was fine in Repo!

He could've been nominated for A Knight's Tale and 10 Things I Hate About You.

As long as he shared the award with Brendan Frasier.

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
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.
