Have you thought of doing a one time award for the worst movie ever made?


RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: That sounds like a possible idea for our next "significant" anniversary -- Mayhaps our 35th Annual Awards. I will keep it in mind.

You may also be interested to know that we did something similar at our 25th ceremonies a few years ago, awarding RAZZIES for Worst Comedy, Worst Drama and Worst Musical of Our First 25 Years. Here's a http://www.razzies.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=354&PN=1 - to check out the nominees and "winners" for those Awards (you'll need to scroll down quite a waze to find them, but they're there)...

I saw elsewhere on this Forum that Lindsay Lohan, playing "twins" in I Know Who Killed Me, was eligible for TWO Worst Actress nominations for 2007. Is that true?? 


Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, since she played a scene with herself at the film's end, Lohan was also be eligible for a Worst Screen Couple nomination for I KNOW WHO -- Thus making her a "triple threat" for the one movie. But since he played THREE characters in NORBIT, and was eligible for individual nominations for each of the three parts (plus Screen Couple for any combination of 2 characters) Lindsay had to cede the record for most RAZZIE® nominations in a single year to fellow 2007 nominee Eddie Murphy...

Isn't Magicopolis the place you held the Razzies the year Tom Green showed up -- and wouldn't get off the stage??

Hopefully, that bodes well for Lindsay Lohan (as if there's any question she will "win" Worst Actress) maybe showing up to accept her well-deserved DIShonor. Who nose -- She might even show up SOBER!

Tom Green got his Razzies for Freddy Got Fingered at The Abra-Cadabra Theatre on March 23rd, 2002. Maybe they changed the name since then??

Response from Head RAZZberry: Actually, it is the same place we held The 22nd Annual RAZZIES® when Tom Green showed up.The Abra-Cadabra Theatre is the name of the stage facitlity inside of Magicopolis, where we'll be holding our "winners" announcements. We use the name "Magicolpolis" since that's what's on the marquee facing the street...

Christmas in Wonderland didn't get a single Razzie nomination. Truly tragic.

Actually, much like Farce of the Penguins, this movie falls victim to Razzie Award rules. Christmas In Wonderland was not released in the U.S., and in fact, the only country where it did get a wide theatrical release was Russia! It managed to take in a little over half a million dollars. As close as I can determine, it was scheduled to open in 5 U.S. cities in November, but didn't actually open in any of them.  It appears that it's headed for DVD release in the U.S., probably sometime in the next few months.

If I'm not mistaken, a film has to be released in theaters in at least 3 major U.S. cities (usually L.A., New York and Chicago) prior to the end of the year in order to be Oscar eligible and the Razzies follow the same standard...Mr. Wilson can correct me on this point if I am in error. Sadly, this disqualifies the two utterly deserving 2007 films listed above.

Since most of the studios are more likely to release their real "dogs" early in the year and their "Oscar Baiters" late, it's fairly easy and inexpensive to see most of the nominated films. But, I dare say that the majority of our members probably don't see all of the nominated films or performances. However, this board can serve as an excellent source, and by participating regularly you can get a pretty good feel for who knows their stuff and who is just around blowing smoke. So, by all means, join us -- and batter Ole Tom all you want.

Right here on the forums, the very first one listed is called "essential Razzie info." By clicking on that one, you'll find another discussion link that will provide you with the necessary information. I believe there is also a link on the main page. In any event, the process is pretty easy and entirely painless...apart from coughing up the dues.

These are the offers I am interested in:

    • Add up to 25 NAMES of friends, co-workers, etc. to The RAZZIE Membership/Mailing List, PLUS: Acknowledgment in the RAZZIE Program (or Guaranteed Anonymity, if desired).
  • http://www.aitsafe.com/cf/add.cfm?userid=3693284&product=Lifetime%20Membership&price=500.00&return=razzies.com&hash=8bd56bbdadb332a0eec4d88422f95eba - LIFETIME Membership – $500.00
    • Add 55 NAMES of friends, co-workers, etc. to The RAZZIE Membership/Mailing List, Acknowledgment in the RAZZIE Program(or Guaranteed Anonymity, if desired)
  • Would that mean that if I find another 25 / 55 people "who share my taste" then I would have something like 25/55 votes? I must admit that this is VERY tempting...  

    RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: The one proviso being that, if you submitted multiple ballots, they would need to be either e-mailed from individual e-addresses and/or "snail mailed" with a verifiable return address on each envelope. A few years back, we were forced to refund someone's $500 Lifetime Membership fee when they tried a blatant ballot-stuffing scam in an apparent attempt to "win" a Vegas betting pool regarding the RAZZIES®...

    There are two ballots that go out each year. The first ballot has a rather lengthy list of nominees in each category, and you'll vote for a few in each category. You will then send that preliminary ballot back to Head Razz

    From that vote, Head Razz will compile the top 5 in each category, and a ballot with those names, the final ballot, will be sent out. You will only vote for one candidate in each category, and the top vote receipient is the Razzie winner.

    Head Razz is better qualified to answer the final question, but you'll likely be required to provide a name and address for the person you want to ballot to go to. I suppose that in theory, you might be able to persuade those people to vote for whom you wish, but I wouldn't count on that.

    RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Saturnwatcher got the basics right -- Each year, current RAZZIE® Members get to vote on two ballots. The first is a Nominating Ballot, listing a dozen or so likely choices in each of our catgegories. On this ballot, Members are asked to vote for no more than five in each category (and are allowed to write-in choices they feel we've overlooked).  From those results, our actual nominations are determined. The second, Final Ballot, then goes out several weeks before our ceremonies to determine who the final "winners" are.

    I should also mention that this year's Nominating Ballot has already been "snail mailed" to our current foreign Members, and has a return deadline of JANUARY 10, 2009. 

    On your question of the additional Memberships that the $250 and $500 Member levels entitle you to: To protect the integrity of our process, you would need to be able to prove that each of those ballots was cast by an individual other than yourself and was thus a valid, tabulatable vote. The last thing we want to do is reenact Florida's 2000 Presidential debacle...

    I apologise for probably being such a blowhard. But I talked to several online friends and they suggested strongly against this move of mine. They think that I would be discovered by $cientology and be fair gamed. They told me not to buy any votes.
    I am sorry, HeadRazz. It's not that I grudge you the money. Certainly not. Besides, Tommy Gurl deserves much more than a Razzie and I am among the first to speak it out. However, my friends say it's too dangerous. They say that I take the risk of being discovered.
    I still hope that all of you Razzie Heads have a great Christmas. I hope you enjoy giving your votes and have your fun without me this time. Maybe next year, when my membership would be less conspicious, I will join the great heaven of Razzie judges. Until then...
    Big hugs.

    To the best of my knowledge, Scientologists don't spend a lot of time reviewing the membership roles of the Razzies, so I'd guess your membership isn't going to draw a lot of attention.

    Second, if the Scientologists had hit squads out there tracking down their most vocal detractors, I'd have to be pretty high on their hit list, both from my comments here and in numerous public forums. To date, I haven't noticed that I'm being stalked by religious fanatics of any flavor. So I wouldn't worry much about joining us.

    When I feel like blasting someone or something in public, George W. Bush, Peewee Herman, Republicans in general and Scientology are all well peppered targets.

    I am worried about the international money transfer. You know, saturnwatcher, the clams would really like to know who I am. Why, I have my personal $cieno trolls on imdb. And look at my entrances on the Valqueerie forum and on Tommy Gurl. I mean, I have been practicing this for some time now.
    I believe that the moment Tommy Gurl gets nominated for Valqueerie they will be all over this board. What are your estimations on this? What has been your experience?

    Damn! Would I love to vote for "the eye patch movie" for Worst Picture and Darth Twinky von Stauffenberg as Worst Actor!

    We've blasted Cruise regularly on this board, and I've taken numerous potshots at Scientology here and elsewhere. To date, there has been no significant defense effort from members of the church or fans of Tommyboy. 

    Stallone's fanbase tends to be much quicker to attempt to jump to his defense, but of course, it is difficult to advance much of an argument when one is limited to monosyllabic postings. Personally, I'd love to get some Scientologists on this board attempting to defend their weird beliefs...not that they are all that much more preposterous than those of most of the more traditional faiths, but they make some claims that are scientifically testable, which could provide for some amusing exchanges.

    I guess in the end, voters agreed with saturnwatcher that giving "Disaster Movie" any attention would result in the movie making more money and then more "Movie Movies" would come out as a result of it. Win or lose, I don't think it will stop Seltzerberg either way. Expect at least one or two more of their "spoofs" before studios finally get a clue to stop giving them money.

    I think what we saw with this year's vote is a reflection of the fact that the membership of the Razzies extends well beyond the opinions reflected on this board. My concerns were expressed, but in reality, I don't think anyone expects much out of movies like Disaster Movie et al. The simple fact that they tend to be released in relatively dead box-office periods reflects that. On the other hand, The Love Guru was an early summer release that should have pulled big numbers and bombed incredibly. From that standpoint, the vote makes some sense. In this particular case, I salute the membership for what really represents a surprising but rational choice.

    1) I looked on their IMDB pages, and they don't have anything listed as "Currently in Production" and don't have anything slated to be released beyond DM. So there is a chance that that WAS the nail in their coffin.

    2) The Love Guru was a bad movie. Disaster Movie was an insult.
    I think you're overestimating the studios when you say that DM was released in a dry period, I'm pretty sure they made Meet the Spartans, and cranked out another Movie as fast as they could and then released it. I highly doubt that when it comes to those, there is any sort of planning going on. Now, to some extent that proves your point, but I think that they've come to expect that they're going to at least triple their investment when they release a Seltzerberg, which is to say that they think they can put it out and make money any time of the year, no matter the conditions. That whatever crap they put out, idiots will pay to see. That's the way I see them working. And that is why I contend that DM, (I never saw MtS, but a friend of mine who is much more lenient in his criticism just told me yesterday that he watched it for some reason and it was Hell on Earth) is not a bad movie, but an insult.
    Surely there are a lot of people who vote in the Razzies, but this really seems like a "Dewey defeats Truman" kind of moment. The forum SHOULD be some sort of indication of what people are thinking out there.

    I agree with you on all points that "DM" was an insult and the embodyment of all things wrong with Hollywood, as it mass produces crap and tries to sell it for a quick buck to anyone stupid enough to take the bait. But no one fell for it this time. As many critics and reviewers said, there was barely anyone in the threaters and those who did attend were text messaging throughout the movie, not paying attention to it.

    This year's Razzies were a rollercoaster of surprises, from "Rambo 4" and "High School 3" not even making the final voting ballot, to "DM" and "The Happening" coming out unharmed. I'm sure everyone had their "favorite" choices of who would win what, but in the end, it was the tally of votes that mattered, and those votes were all for Mike Myers and Paris Hilton. Who knows, maybe they will team up for "Austin Powers 4" and become known as Myton or Hilers.

    BUT, let us recall that it was BOTH DM and MtS that were nominated, and MtS still made money. In the end, I suppose it comes down to people being disappointed with Mike Myers, as you've said, and I with them for not realizing the greater threat to society.

    RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: In a word...no. The voting membership of The Academy of Motion Picture Farts and Scientologists is more than 8 times the size of ours, and even in their case, I think choosing from among 10 contenders will dilute the vote, and it's meaning.

    Our members will, however, get to vote for five additional titles up for our special Worst Picture of the Decade RAZZIE®...

    I'm only half devastated. 2009 was bad enough without Uwe Boll and Seltzerberg, but 2010, save for June, won't be that bad a year for films. That is, if you look at it from the vantage point of January. Around the end of May, a lot of unscheduled 2010 films will have concrete release dates, and we won't need Blackout.

    The problem is that he has nothing to say.  What argument has he made? What statement has he made worthy of response? He is certainly entitled to his opinion, and if his opinion is that the Razzies are a joke and run by a bunch of crack addicts (or something to that effect...I'm not going to bother to go back and look it up) he is only ranting from a position of ignorance not worthy of attention. In my profession, we have a saying that is now somewhat over a decade old: "So many idiots, so few comets."

    My post was a general remark with regard to so called "trolls" who periodically (especially around this time of year) pop onto our board, unleash a few insults then disappear. The overall intent of the post was not to address this one individual specifically, but rather to point out the fruitlessness of encouraging these types by addressing their remarks. It only grants them a degree of self-satisfaction. I'm not calling him/her an idiot specifically (although if the shoe fits, wear it), I am placing this individual in a general class and, I hope, permitting you to realize that there is nothing to be gained from engaging them.

    Well, "Avatar" got a little Oscar boost when it won major awards at the Golden Globes. Now "Hurt Locker" got a boost from winning a whole lot of British Oscars. 10 Best Picture movies, yet only two of them matter. Oh Oscars, your flawed logic amuses us so!  

    RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: In terms of what I personally think ought to be rewarded as the year's "best" in movies, I am foolishly hoping The Academy voters are wise enough not to just give Kathryn Bigelow Best Director so they can cross "giving the award to a woman" off their PC/To DO List, but that they're wise enough to give HURT LOCKER several other statuettes as well (like Screenplay, Editing, Actor and PICTURE).

    But what I'm hearing is that, while Bigelow is all but a "lock" for the Director Oscar, the over-whelming popularity of AVATAR (and the Academy's blatant desire to pander to popular tastes this year) means that Cameron's box office behemoth is the likelier winner for The Big One. That would mean, of the last ten year's worth of supposed "Best Pictures," I've actually thought Oscar got it right maybe 2-3 times (among them last year's choice of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE)...

    Yeah, if either one of those two flicks ended up as nods for Best Picture (or "Bayformers 2" for that matter), than you know it's just for the popular vote. As for Bigelow, I do hope she wins, not because it will be a first for a woman, but because she earned it.

    I don't think they would deserve it. According to that movie, California would tip upwards and sink into the ocean in the same fashion as the Titantic did. I'm sure, saturnwatcher would point that out as well.

    That's a plot hole,which is related to writing and directing.It has nothing to do on how good the effects were.At least a nom. in the "Sound" categories would been enough,but instead they gave it to your "enemy" http://www.razzies.com/forum/transformers-revenge-of-the-fallen_forum363.html - TRANSFORMERS 2 .

    "Bayformers 2" isn't winning that award. Chances are "Avatar" is taking home everything it's up for in the special effects department.

    I wouldn't mind terribly if Avatar manages to take the special effects awards, but if it takes Best Picture, AMPAS might as well merge with the People's Choice Awards forthwith and just admit that the entire thing is a sham.
