The winners of the 33rd annual Golden Raspberry Awards, popularly known as the Razzies, were announced lasts night. The Razzies are “a logical antidote to Tinsel Town’s annual glut of self-congratulations [created] by John Wilson, author of Everything I Know I Learned at the Movies.” As is traditional, the awards were announced one day before the Oscar Awards.
According to the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation,”this year saw yet another Razzie sweep, but this one was incomplete: Although The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 went into the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards race with a near-record 11 nominations (more nods than there were categories) it only managed to ‘win’ seven spray-painted statuettes…. But it still fell short of last year’s unprecedented all-ten-category sweep by Adam Sandler’s Jack & Jill. Sandler wasn’t totally over-looked though: the aging, schlubby comic took the Worst Actor Razzie for the second year in a row, and his film That’s My Boy bested Twilight for Worst Screenplay by a single vote.”
“Nominees and ‘winners’ for 9 of this year’s 10 Razzie categories were determined by ballots e-mailed to 657 Voting Members throughout 47 US states and 19 foreign countries. For the 10th category, ‘Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel’, both nominees and ‘winners’ were decided by conduction a poll at RottenTomatoes.com, in which nearly 70,000 votes were cast.”
