2015 Golden Raspberry Awards Announced!

Having just sat through The Golden Globes this past weekend it seems that awards season is in full swing in Hollywood. Actors, writers and directors are getting their dresses and tuxes fitted so they can go to the next big ceremony to get sloppy while getting insulted by the likes of Ricky Gervais. There is one awards show that most celebrities will stay home in their sweat pants, drinking alone for instead of attending; The Golden Raspberry Awards AKA The Razzies! (Props to Sandra Bullock who actually showed her face to receive her Razzie in 2010 for All About Steve. The very next day she received an Academy Award for Best Actress in The Blind Side.)

Is this  what Transformer dung looks like?

Some of us enjoy “bad” B movies made on a shoestring budget and loads of those come out every year for us to hate-watch. However The Razzies celebrate the worst of big budget Hollywood movies that were supposed to be good. These are films that opened nationwide with big name stars, and multimillion dollar publicity campaigns telling us how awesome they are. That’s why it’s great that Transformers: Age Of Extinction has seven nominations. This film had enough plot holes to drive a truck through which then turns into a giant robot.

Any Sex Tape is better than no Sex Tape?

That being said, I’m not sure that I would include Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas which only opened in 400 theaters (a major release like Transformers opens in 3  to 4 thousand theaters). However, by all accounts Saving Christmas was pretty terrible, but at least not Michael Bay terrible; Bay has the honor of having two of his films  nominated for “Worst Picture” – Transformers: Age Of Extinction and Transformers: Now They Are Mutant Turtles. –Seriously I think he used the same footage of buildings falling down in both films.
