The article doesn't make it clear -- Who ARE the critics who vote on these "awards"??  If they're the same TV and radio critics who are constantly being quoted in newspaper ads for bad movies week-after-week, then these awards mean absolutely ...NOTHING!!

Response from Head RAZZberry: Here's a LINK to the Main Page of The Broadcast Film Critics' Association WEB SITE...and a DIRECT LINK to the page on their site where a Complete List of Their 200 Voting Members can be found. Quickly perusing the list, it appears that YES, many of their Voting Members ARE the same ones perpetually quoted on print ads for lousy movies, among them Bonnie Churchill, Pete Hammond, Jeanne Wolf and many others whose quotes on a movie ad immediately clue me in that the film being advertised is likely to be a RAZZIE Contender. So you see, they do serve some purpose after all!  

Everything SUX!
