The 24th Annual RAZZIE® Awards

For Immediate Release

GIGLI’s a Really Big Hit
with RAZZIE® Voters!


After setting a new record for worst second weekend fall-off in Hollywood history, 2003’s most critically
reviled film GIGLI now leads the pack among nominations for The 24th Annual Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE®) Awards, dis-honoring 2003’s Worst Achievements in Film. “Winners” (if that’s the right term here!) will be announced in ultra-low-budget ceremonies scheduled for 10:30am/PST Saturday, February 28
at the Four-Points by Sheraton Hotel in Santa Monica, the now traditional 24 hours BEFORE That Other Award Show (a.k.a. “The Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men”).

Competing as 2003’s Worst Picture alongside 9-times-nominated GIGLI are THE CAT-IN-THE-HAT (a.k.a. The Dr. Seuss Mortification Project), that two-hour music video overloaded with guns and T&A CHARLIE’S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE, the delightfully dunderheaded BEACH PARTY throwback FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY and the first-ever Reality-TV Movie, THE REAL CANCUN. Competing in Worst Actor are Ben Affleck for DAREDEVIL, GIGLI and PAYCHECK, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ashton Kutcher (also with three titles each) Justin Guarini for JUSTIN TO KELLY and Mike Meyers for his fur-ball-hocking desecration of CAT-IN-THE-HAT. Alongside front-runner Jennifer Lopez for GIGLI, others vying for Worst Actress will be former Oscar® darling Angelina Jolie (BEYOND BORDERS and LARA CROFT 2) ersatz recording “star” Kelly Clarkson for JUSTIN TO KELLY and two of the three CHARLIE’S ANGELS, Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz. Other familiar names listed among contenders for Tinsel Town’s Tackiest Trophy include former Oscar® winners Al Pacino and Christopher Walken (both nominated as Worst Supporting Actor from GIGLI) previous RAZZIE® “winner” Kelly Preston and Alec Baldwin (both nominated for their supporting roles in CAT-IN-THE-HAT) and, copping a record 30th nomination in just 24 years, Awl-Time RAZZIE® Cham-Peen Sylvester Stallone, playing five roles(!) in SPY KIDS 3-D: GAME OVER. A complete list of nominations is included with this press release.

The 2004 RAZZIE® ceremony will rip-and-tear its way through some 10 Worst categories in under an hour, among them such long-term RAZZIE® traditions as Worst Screen Couple and Worst Remake or Sequel and a brand new one, Worst Excuse for an Actual Movie, designed to dis-honor screen efforts that favor concept over content. Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 578 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 39 U.S. states and 15 foreign countries. The award itself is a handcrafted gold spray-painted golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled reel of Super 8 film, with an estimated street value of $4.89.

The RAZZIES® were created in 1980 by John Wilson, a life-long cynic and Cine-Maniac as well as the author of both EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES and the up-coming Warner book
THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE, scheduled for release to tie-in with next year’s 25th Annual RAZZIE® Awards.
