The Razzies

The Razzies were created in 1980 by JOHN WILSON, who mailed out ballots to 757 Golden Raspberry Foundation members in 42 US states and more than a dozen foreign countries. They have their own awards show the night before the Oscars, and those few brave souls who choose to accept their Razzie Award get a gold-spray-painted, golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled Super-8 film reel, with an estimated street value of $4.97.

This Year’s Razzie nominations: Up for worst picture: “Land of the Lost,” “G-I Joe,” “Old Digs,” “All About Steve” and the “Transformers” sequel.
   “All About Steve” is a SANDRA BULLOCK film; she’s also nominated for a Best Actress nomination for her performance in “The Blind Side.” So she could potentially be the first actress to land an Oscar and a Razzie in the same year. Her production company backed both films.
Other bad movies (in no particular order of badness) from this past year: “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” “Jennifer’s Body,” “Observe and Report,” “Couples Retreat,” “Sorority Row,” “The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard,” “The Ugly Truth,” “I Love You Beth Cooper,” “Year One,” “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” “Miss March,” “Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” He’s Just Not That Into You.”
   And how about: “Terminator Salvation,” “The Pink Panther 2,” “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” “Seven Pounds,” (a mortgage payment for Will Smith) and “Old Dogs,” which was Bernie Mac’s last movie.

Razzie Worst Actor nominations:
   –Will Ferrell, “Land of the Lost”
   –Steve Martin, “Pink Panther 2″
   –Eddie Murphy, “Imagine That”
   –John Travolta, “Old Dogs”
   –Jonas Brothers, “Jonas Brothers, a 3-D Concert Experience”
Razzie Worst Actress nominations:
   –Sandra Bullock, “All About Steve”
   –Beyonce, “Obsessed”
   –Miley Cyrus, “Hannah Montana: the Movie”
   –Megan Fox, “Jennifer’s Body” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”
   –Sarah Jessica Parker, “Did You Hear About the Morgans?”
