"on our 29th Annual Nominations for Worst Achievements in Film, just announced this morning."

Uh ok... it was announced but... where can we find this nomination list on the website? It's nowhere! Hard to give any feedback if we can't see the nominations...

WOW! Looks like Uwe Boll could sweep this year's Razzies the way Eddie Murphy and Lindsay Lohan did last year's.

My one big disappointment: As awful as "In the Name of the King" is, Boll's "Postal" was actually way worse -- Yet it only got a handful of nominations.

Also, if you gize could add how many nominations each picture received to your info, that would be helpful. It's difficult, the way it's presented right now, to tally up that info if you're interested in it...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: We'll take your request for additional info under advisement and see if it can be added later today. Right now our Web Master is sleeping off a long night creating the materials that auto-posted at 5:30am today...

 

Everything SUX!

Okay, surprises first: "Meet The Spartans" and "Disaster Movie" share a Worst Picture nomination, but "In The Name Of The King" and "Postal" don't? Also, no nods for "High School Musical 3" at all?! Lastly, Eddie Murphy takes full blame for "Meet Dave", and no one else.

Other than that, everything that should have gotten a nod, did get a nod. Worst Supporting Actress is full of talentless blow-up dolls that have no right to be in the business (except Leelee, her agent just sucks at getting her good roles). Seltzerberg and Uwe Boll are all over the place, as they should be, and (much to moviewizguy's dislike) "The Happening" is also multiply-nominated. I can't wait for his latest rant about how it was the most misunderstood movie of 2008 and we don't know what we are doing by giving it so many nods (or wins).

One last thing: I know that giving five actresses one "award" is tempting, but I seriously do think that the entire cast of "The Women" as Worst Actress is a bit much. I know I've hammered this idea here on the forum as much as moviewizguy has tried to hammer us with the thought that "The Happening" was a good movie, but for next year, I think Worst On-Screen Duo should be permently replaced with Worst Ensemble Cast. That covers more ground and then it makes more sense when entire casts are considered worthy of being razzed.

PS: Uwe Boll for Worse Career ... justice is served! He's not getting away from us this time. Now, it's just a matter of me having to choose: Who will to vote for more, Boll or Seltzerberg?

[QUOTE=Michaels]Worst Supporting Actress is full of talentless blow-up dolls that have no right to be in the business (except Leelee, her agent just sucks at getting her good roles). /QUOTE]

While this may or may not be true, LeeLee's outstandingly horrid acting in 88 Minutes springs solely from her own "merits."  No agent, director or other outside influence could possibly have coaxed such a  Golden Turkey performance as LeeLee's was in the last 20 minutes of this film.  It's hard to say she is at all a good actress.  (I only remember her early and almost-equally awful work in Deep Impact.)  Her high school play-like acting in 88M truly was, as I've stated before, a performance for the ages.

Im glad that THE LOVE GURU is present, I think it's the worst garbage done after the Austin Power movies (...) It was flat out stupid and shameless. I hope Kate Hudson wins because she has been doing nothing but crap cheap comedies that give no laughs. And, I hope Jenny McCarthy wins again! I read she said on an interview she is scared of getting another RAZZIE!

Overall your nominations are not bad -- Each of the nominees deserves to be on the list. However I think that the Razzie® Members forgot others that needed to be there! Films like Get Smart, One Missed Call, Shutter, Made of Honor, The Strangers, You Don't Mess with the Zohan, 10.000 B.C, and Mirrors. I mean, those films had to be there!!!

Maybe you should add more nominees. I'm serious, many of these films are worse than The happening, or other nominated ones there...

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: As I try to explain every year around this time, even we cannot dis-honor EVERY bad film that comes along. Every one of the titles you mentioned above did at least have a Forum discussion as a possible RAZZIE contender -- but in the end, none made the "final five" in any category. So while we agreee with you that the films you listed did suck, apparently our Voting Members didn't feel they sucked enough to wind up being actual nominees...

As glad I am that The Happening is nominated for Worst Picture, I am still disappointed that Prom Night
and Made of Honor managed to get by without a single nod. Prom Night had a premise that could have
been a creepy time at the movies, but by the time I left the theater, my gut was sore from laughing so
hard. As for Made of Honor, if it weren't for its two leads, this would be in the same league as The Hottie
and the Nottie. Its premise is made of one hundred percent, recycled cliches, particularly for My Best
Friend's Wedding. And while they aren't quite as awful to replace the five Worst Picture Noms, I think
they could have at least fit them in the Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, replacing Indy 4 and
the Day the Earth Blowed Up Real Good.

It's finally nice to see the two Seltzerturd movies be nominated for worst picture collectively, after having them go scott free in the last two years. They're essentially the same movie, filled with crappy cultural references that have little to do with the film's plot.

I'm glad the Razzies did not go after Sly or Tom Cruise this year. I was worried that they would hog up space in the Worst Actor and Picture categories, when there were many more deserving films out there.

One nomination from this year I kinda question is Indy 4's nomination for Worst Sequel. Sure it had some ridiculous plot lines and stunts, but I thought it was not as big of a disappointment as Quantam of Solace was compared to Casino Royale.
Seltzerberg is back?

OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!

Somebody explain to me how Cameron Diaz made the Worst Actress cut (the script was the worst thing about What Happens in Vegas, NOT her!), when Eva Longoria Parker and her stupid spray-tan was CLEARLY the worst thing in the megadud Over Her Dead Body; in fact, ELP was worse than ANY of the nominess, including Paris! Also, I second Michael's comment about adding a Worst Ensemble category, rather than cramming 4-5 actresses in one nomination spot year after year...

That's an okay list of nominations.  You were able to avoid punches from the internet bloggers, but your snubbing of 10,000 B.C., Saw V, and High School Musical 3 among others will leave some people questioning your judgment.  However, you did get some respect with Sylvester Stallone being absent from the final ballot (a lot of people were annoyed when they saw him on the preliminary ballot).  Your grip on The Day the Earth Stood Still and Speed Racer loosened despite traces of those films being on the ballot.  Uwe Boll, Mike Myers, and Seltzerberg should be in for a beating when the awards take place in about a month.

I am however, disappointed with your counterparts at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.  Everyone's pissed seeing that The Dark Knight isn't nominated for Best Picture.  I'm kinda surprised that Sally Hawkins didn't get nominated for Best Actress and Bruce Springsteen's "The Wrestler" didn't get nominated for Best Song.  They lost respect while you guys did not.

Well, the "judgement" was the voting of over 600 members, not HeadRazz himself. Sure, stuff like "Saw 5" and "High School Musical 3" got away from us, but I think it is a fair exchange in order to have better shots at Seltzerberg and Uwe Boll. I also agree it good Stallone got off, since is kinda two-faced for us to say Seltzerberg are beating a dead horse with a stick, and yet we are still razzing the Sly Guy, to which he couldn't care less.

And back to my comment with Leelee, I guess I'm seeing her as if she's part of the old elementary school test of "okay, students, which of the following doesn't belong" ... to which the answer is "the only woman on the Worst Supporting Actress list who didn't become famous for posing nude in Playboy or appearing in homemade porn". Sure, Leelee was good in that TV movie "Joan of Arc", but she has gone down hill since then with movies like "Joy Ride", "The Glass House", and of course, "The Wicker Man" (although it's impossible to single her out in that movie, because everyone in it sucked). It's just as shame she's listed along side that list of talentless attention whores.

Oh, and yes, the Oscars dropped the ball BIG TIME. Where the hell did "The Reader" come from?! No "Wall-E" for Best Picture or Sally Hawkins for Best Actress? And don't get me started on "Dark Knight" not being up for Best Picture, Director, or Screenplay. But "Titantic" got 11 awards ... go figure! I guess they don't want high TV ratings. Here's a Yahoo article about it.

Gee, I thought the Oscars were supposed to be about quality, not ratings. Oh, and The Dark Knight received 8 nominations, a fact that most of the Dark Knight fanboys seemed to have missed.

 

As for the Razzies, Tom Cruise was truly horrible in Valkyrie, worse than Al Pacino and Mark Wahlberg.

Ben Kingsly for The Wackness? He was amazing in that movie not too mention that, The Wackness was a f**king amazing movie. We all know Ben was awful in The Love Guru and War Inc., but he was amazing in that movie. Should have left that movie out of that nomination.
