As The Creator of the RAZZIES®, I realize that sometimes the most deserving nominees AREN'T our "winners" (I seriously thought Adam Sandler's demonically unfunny LITTLE NICKY sucked way worse than BATTLEFIELD EARTH) and sometimes something that deserves a good RAZZing doesn't even get nominated (NATURAL BORN KILLERS, for example).

If you agree that we don't alwaze make The Best Choices (or should that be WORST choices?) let us hear your feedback. We can't go back and change our history, but this is a topic we get lots of e-mails on every year. So, FIRE AWAY!!

A college professor RAZZIE® Member sent us this comment via e-mail: " I hated the fact that From FROM JUSTIN 2 KELLY beat XANADU as Worst Musical of Our First 25 Years (at The 25th RAZZIES® last February)!  UNFAIR!  I guess not enough RAZZIE® voters appreciated the timelessness of XANADU's blithering dialogue, out-of step  choreography, or& nbsp;misguided direction.  The director of Xanadu needed Xanax to realize the roller skating thing just wouldn't work; alas, the substance only came on the market the year the film was released and therefore was unavailable during Bolivia Neutron Bomb's slide to shame!  "

I didn't like the Razzies' choices for 2004 - Here's what I would have chosen: 

Worst Supporting Actress - Sharon Stone / CATWOMAN -- 

why award Britney Spears for an appearance in a documentary??  

 

Worst Supporting Actor

Arnold Schwarzenegger - AROUND THE WORLD in 80 DAZE  

 

Worst Actor:  

Brad Pitt - TROY  

 

Also, for 1996:  

Worst Supporting Actor

(tie) Burt Reynolds - STRIPTEASE &

Marlon Brando - ISLAND of DR. MOREAU

Interesting -- Your 1996 note ALMOST came true: When we tallied the Final Ballots that year, Reynolds and Brando were in a dead heat for Worst Supporting Actor. As Head RAZZberry, I alwaze cast my ballot LAST...and I thought Marlon deserved the RAZZing SO much more than Burt (Since Burt had already "won" Worst Actor a year or two earlier for COP AND A HALF-WIT). And Reynolds DID "win" our 1996 Award for Worst Screen Couple w/Demi Moore for STRIPTEASE.

Just a Berry Special Peak Behind the RAZZ-Berry Curtain you can ONLY get here!

Though how Brad Pitt got away w/out a Worst Actor nod for TROY, I'll NEVER understand!!

The unwatchable NORTH losing to the campy COLOR OF NIGHT

Halle Berry winning Worst Actress. It was the most notorious performance but Berry is actually talented, unlike Hilary Duff and the Olsen Twins...

Shelley Duval being nominated for THE SHINING??? She should have gotten an Oscar® nomination as Best Actress...

Shelley Duvall an OSCAR® nomination? For playing Olive Oyl in a Haunted House?????

If you read Stephen King's novel, you know what a colorless,timid film adaptation THE SHINING was. I have two words about what they left out (for those who DID read the book): Topiary Animals!

Yeah, I second loor.vic. 2004 was a weak year

I like George Bush "winning" Worst Actor  for his unconvincing performance as a president, but Rumsfeld and Spears was overkill.

Also, I was heartbroken to see Nick Nolte's name left off the ballot for his scene devouring performance in THE HULK. He should have won! Instead the winner was "Been There, Done That" Stallone. Is anyone still surprised when he gives a bad performance?

Two replies: Yes, Nick Nolte SHOULD have been a Worst Supporting Actor nominee for HULK, but he didn't get enough votes in the nominating process to make the final five.

And, lest you forget, in SPY KIDS 3-D, Awl-Time RAZZIE® Cham-Peen Sylvester Stallone gave not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE Horrible Performances, as a Mad Scientist, a Hippie, an aging Nazi, a Goofy TV Reporter and "The Toymaker." I actually toyed with the idea of listing each character separately, just to see if Stallone alone could fill the entire Supporting Actor category! Even for His Awfulness, Duh SLY-ster, it was a Berry Impressive Under Achievement  !!

I'm still kinda cheesed that ROLLERBALL didn't even receive a Worst Picture nomination for the 2003 awards. (I voted for it on my ballot!)

And although the sequel was nominated for Worst Pic this year, I'm still amazed that the original BABY GENIUSES didn't receive a single nomination at the 2000 awards.

If I think of anything else, I'll post it again here soon.

Stallone in SPY KIDS 3-D did give the funniest bad performance of all time!!. 2003 was a tough year for Worst Supporting Actor : Al Pacino in GIGLI, Christopher Walken in GIGLI, too.

 And Schwarzenegger did the most ridiculous performance of his career (the hair, the faces, the whole role as Prince Hapi!) in AROUND THE WORLD in 80 DAZE. Arnold deserved the RAZZIE®!!.

STOP OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT!! deserved the Worst Picture Award in 1992. I liked SHINING THROUGH, but hated Melanie Griffith's performance...

Dustin Hoffman deserved to be nominated as Worst Actor for ISHTAR (1987) and also for Worst in Screen Couple: Warren Beatty & Dustin Hoffman or Isabella Rosellini. And ISHTAR should've won the award for Worst Picture of 1987.

 

MOMMIE DEARESTwas funny, Faye Dunaway gave a decent performance, ENDLESS LOVE (1981) was much much worse.

 

Nicole Kidman, Bette Midler and Glenn Close, not nominated for their performances in the 2004 remake of  THE STEPFORD WIVES??. Why not??.

Please nominate this year: Michael Keaton in WHITE NOISE (and also for HERBIE: FULLY LOADED)!

Please people, nominate Russell Crowe for CINDERELLA MAN! Or at least nominate that screechy-lemon faced Renee Zelleger. I know this an unpopular view, but I thought the movie was so cliched and the performances were SO calculated. Maybe a RAZZIE® on his shelf will stop these ignorant journalist from calling Crowe the "greatest living actor"!

And since this will never happen, at least vote for Ass-ton Kutcher for GUESS WHO and A THING CALLED LOVE...

                                                                                                                            What you got wrong in 2004...WORST PICTURE: "Christmas With the Kranks" and "Van Helsing" INSTEAD of "Surviving Christmas" and "White Chicks"...WORST DIRECTOR: Spike Lee (She Hate Me) INSTEAD of K.I. Wayans...WORST ACTOR: Jimmy Fallon (Taxi) and Ashton Kutcher (The Butterfly Effect) INSTEAD of Pres. Bush and Ben Stiller...WORST ACTRESS: Brittany Murphy (Little Black Book) and Meg Ryan (Against the Ropes) INSTEAD of Angelina Jolie and The Wayans Brothers/Sistas...WORST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Kevin Pollak (The Whole Ten Yards) and Richard Roxburg (Van Helsing) INSTEAD of Don Rumsfeld and Lambert Wilson...WORST SUPPORTING ACTRESS (You REALLY F'd up here): Only Sharon (Face of) Stone belonged here (and should've "won", too), to be joined by Ann-Margret (Taxi), Farrah Fawcett (The Cookout), Louise Lasser (National Lampoon's Gold Diggers), and Julia "smug beyond belief" Roberts (Ocean's Twelve).

So are we to infer from your Member Name StinkersRule that you are a fan of "That OTHER Bad Movie Award"...Or a Karl Rove type, moling, lurking and leaking in The Official RAZZIE® Forum with Some Nefarious Purpose??

Just Curious...and Just Kidding (mostly!!)...

Headberry, in the razzie book, it mentions the Golden Turkey awards as the "Other" bad movie award. Do you know where I could find info on the past nominees, I've been looking all over the net, and haven't found anything. Thanks.

The Golden Turkey Awards, originated in a series of books by brothers Harry and Michael Medved, have never to my knowledge been a regularly scheduled annual event. I think they were affiliated with one of the "supermarket tabloids" for a year or two in the mid-90s (THE STAR?) but have apparently not been given on a regular/yearly basis since. My entry in OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE regarding THE SPECIALIST mentions that Rod Steiger deservedly "won" their 1994 Worst Supporting Actor award for his Ricky-Ricardo-on-acid performance in that film.

Here is a LINK to Amazon.com for used copies of the Medveds' book, THE GOLDEN TURKEY AWARDS:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/039950463X/ref%3Dpd%5 Fsl%5Fov%5Fovlegacy-1%5Fdetail-book%5F621007%5F1/104-4568877 -4591141

And a LINK for their follow-up, SON OF THE GOLDEN TURKEY AWARDS:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0394743415/qid =1123569805/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-4568877-4591141?v=glance&a mp;a mp;a mp;a mp;s=books

The Medveds (one or both) also worked on THE FIFTY WORST FILMS OF ALL TIME:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0446381195/qid =1123569948/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-4568877-4591141?v=glance&a mp;a mp;a mp;a mp;s=books

...and THE HOLLYWOOD HALL OF SHAME: THE MOST EXPESNIVE FLOPS in MOVIE HISTORY:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0399510605/qid =1123569982/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/104-4568877-4591141?v=glance&a mp;a mp;a mp;a mp;s=books

I have all of these books in my personal library, and recommend them as amusing reading on the subject of Epically Awful Cinema.

Hope this info proves helpful!
