A sure sign that spring is nigh… the Razzie nominations are out!

And what a star-studded list of failure this is… it’s the 30th annual Golden Raspberry Awards for the Worst Achievements in Cinema (or, for short, the Razzie Awards).   Nominations are always done the morning before Oscar nominations, and they’re given out the night before the other awards.  Generally, the recipients don’t actually pick them up, although Halle Berry famously picked up her “Catwoman” Worst Actress award, Tom Green picked up his 5-award haul for “Freddy Got Fingered”, and Bill Cosby made Fox pay for 24-karat gold and marble Razzies for “Leonard: Part 6”.

Now those who know me know that I’m not really a movie person… I rarely, if ever, sit through a film in a theatre.  BUT… for someone who works weekends in radio, the Razzies are a godsend… as they’re announced on a Saturday, someone like me can use the results on a Sunday show as both a recap and a backhanded Oscar preview. :)  So yes, I’m a big Razzie fan.

Who’s nominated, you say?  I thought you’d never ask… and it’s below the cut (for WordPress readers)… more details at www.razzies.org.

The nominations are exactly as shown on the Razzie site, complete with their snark and parenthetical comments.  I’m really awaiting the Worst of the Aughts (the last 3 awards). 🙂
