I'm cynical and sarcastic enough to get behind a tongue-in-cheek "worst of the year" awards presentation, but there's never much amusement to be found in the annual Razzie nominations. Their picks seem to be either A) high-profile "fish in a barrel" nominees, or B) a bunch of movies / movie stars that are bad, sure, but are mainly popular enough to generate some fan-based outrage -- and therefore more attention for the Razzies as a whole.
For example, as goofy as the 'Twilight' films are, they're nowhere near as wretched as, say, 'Jonah Hex,' but "Twilight Razzie" will get 10 times the traffic as "Jonah Hex Razzie." Then they nominate the same flicks 11 times. And yet here we are, sharing their goofy nominations with you anyway. (My own commentary, as a massive expert on terrible films, will follow in italics)
- 'The Bounty Hunter'
- 'The Last Airbender'
- 'Sex and the City 2'
- 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse'
- 'Vampires Suck'
(Fair enough; those are five pretty rotten flicks.)
- Jack Black, 'Gulliver's Travels'
- Gerard Butler, 'The Bounty Hunter'
- Ashton Kutcher, 'Killers' and 'Valentine's Day'
- Taylor Lautner, 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' and 'Valentine's Day'
- Robert Pattinson, 'Remember Me' and 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse'
(That the Razzies happily nominate one actor for multiple roles tells you all you need to know about their legitimacy.)
