Happy Oscar Sunday everyone! As we all wait patiently to see the beautiful ones walk the red carpet and the talented ones receive their statues, yesterday the 34th annual Razzie Awards were announced at a ceremony at IgnitedSpaces in Hollywood.
The Razzies are perhaps the antithesis of the Academy Awards, honouring the worst of the worst in performance and film for the preceding year, and recipients are presented with the prestigious Golden Raspberry statue.
This year’s nominations were dominated by the Adam Sandler flick, Grown Ups 2 with a whopping nine noms, yet astonishingly went home empty-handed. Other nominees included Movie 43, which has the fabulous 4% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the widely criticised After Earth, A Madea Christmas which also earned Tyler Perry a nomination for Worst Actress (he appeared in the film in drag) and Disney’s The Lone Ranger that has also been nominated for an actual Oscar.
Taking out the top honour was Movie 43 that not only received the award for Worst Picture, it also claimed victory for Worst Screenplay and Worst Director. Though, when you have a total of thirteen names in the credits under ‘Director’, and nineteen names listed as ‘Screenwiters’ those categories really should have been renamed “Proof That Too Many Cooks Spoil The Broth”.
Father and son duo Will and Jayden Smith were awarded Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Actor, respectively, for their roles in After Earth as well as receiving Worst Screen Combo.
Below is the full list of winners, though I doubt any of them will be adding this accolade to their resume.
