Razzie Nominations Announced, Land of the Lost and Transformers 2 Lead the Pack
Posted 02.01.10 by reelz
We have to wait until tomorrow to hear the Academy Award nominations for 2009. While we await word on the year's best, we can certainly have fun with the year's worst.
Earlier today, the Razzie Awards announced their nominations. For the uninitiated, the Razzies have "celebrated" the most laughable, horrific, and jawdroppingly awful movies and performances each year since 1980. Past "winning" actors include Pauly Shore, Andrew Dice Clay, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone, and The Spice Girls. Past "winning" pictures include Showgirls, Battlefield Earth, Freddy Got Fingered, Gigli, and Catwoman.
This year, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Land of the Lost were singled out for shame, receiving seven nominations a piece. In the running for acting "honors" are The Jonas Brothers, Megan Fox, Miley Cyrus, and Steve Martin, among others.
Interestingly enough, Sandra Bullock may have a chance to win both an Academy Award and a Razzie in the same year, which no one has ever done. She will more than likely get an Oscar nod for The Blind Side, and she is up for a Razzie for All About Steve. For the latter, she's also nominated with Bradley Cooper for Worst Screen Couple. Their competition includes:
Kristen Stewart & EITHER Robert Pattinson OR Taylor Whatz-His-Fang for The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Cue the Team Edward and Team Jacob outrage.
The Razzies also announced their picks for the decade as well, singling out actors and movies that got multiple awards or received large percentages of votes. Choices included Ben Affleck, Eddie Murphy, Mariah Carey, and Paris Hilton.
You can view the entire history of nominees and recipients here. This year's Razzies will be announced on Saturday, March 6, the night before the Oscars.
