Forget the Oscars, it’s all about the Razzies! (Just kidding, I’m obsessed with the Oscars)
There are definitely some actors, actresses and films that need to be recognized for their absolute shit-tasticness. All in gooooooood, humbling fun.
This is where the Razzies come in. Awards are handed out for the worst of the worst films made over the past year and the worst performances. It’s genius. With all the pompous attitudes that ooze from Hollywood-types, it’s more than refreshing to see horrible, million dollar choices get what they deserve.
And let’s face it: Making movies that witty 6th graders would scoff at and still getting multi-million dollar salaries totally warrants the fun-poking of the Razzies.
It’s also a chance for stars to show off their humorous and humble sides when it comes to the complete crap some of them make each year. ‘For money’ projects. Please! What a life. I’m pretty sure most of us would make shitty movies too in-between our more serious roles. A cool 10 mil for I Know Who Killed Me 2: Heaven’s Vengeance? Yes please. Where do I sign?
It’s really, really awesome when the stars who receive Razzies for their lesser-acclaimed roles show up and accept them in person. In 2009, Sandra Bullock accepted the Worst Actress Razzie for All About Steve the same year she won the coveted Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side. How cool is that?! She may be the best person in America.
2012 Razzie Nominations
This year, 90s funny guy Adam Sandler has broken a Razzie record, with a staggering 11 nominations for his film abomination Jack and Jill. I’m glad it’s been recognized that movies involving playing more than one character are not okay in any way, shape or form. Do you hear that, Eddie Murphy? STOP IT. Unless it’s Jimmy Fallon, because I could embarrassingly get behind that, only if his Robert Pattinson ‘Bothered‘ skit was involved.
Check out the Razzie noms here! Our fave Alaskan Sarah Palin got a nod too. Woo!!
