Well, okay, not that last one. . . . Clown
Yeah, that last one shouldn't even count as a horror movie, just a comedy that featured horror movie icons for some reason. Talk about phoning it in!

Being inferior to the original movie. A rule with sequels, they should at least try to top the original, ie. "Godfather Part 2", "Aliens", "X-Men 2", "Dark Knight", etc.

Right but they are rarely memorably bad, often just mediocre. There just one of many that gets lost in the crowd, and will be forgotten by the end of the year. These films are released but not remembered by the general public (if you were to ask them about this movie 5 years from now). Most of them have no stayingpower. Why'll films with an awfull reputation like Bolero, Showgirls, Leonard part 6, Howard The Duck and Battlefield Earth wil be remembered as examples of the worst films ever made. I believe a Razzie-winner shouldn't be a film that is forgotten because it lives in the shadow of it's much better predecessor.

I hope that my message came across well. I know that the above text is kind of messy. English isn't my native language (as you may have guessed).

Vits, I think that there is a big chance that both honours will go to "Airbender" this year.
I will probably be voting for Vampires Suck because i consider it the worst picture made this year. That and The Last Airbender has become some sort of guilty pleasure-movie of mine (don't judge me)

You know what?Your're right.They shouldn't be separated,because then voters will say "I'm voting for that original movie for "Worst Picture" because even though I hated that remake/sequel the most it will be awarded anyway

Probably because the main prize (Worst Picture) rarely goes to a remake or sequels.

In it's entire 30-year run it just went to 4 sequels (Rambo 2, Star Trek 5, Basic Instinct 2, Transformers 2), 1 remake (Wild Wild West) and 1 spin-off (Catwoman). Correct me if i am wrong but it seems that original screenplays and book adaptations have a better track record there.

So? That would mean more sequels,remakes and rip-offs will get nominated. Maybe that will teach Hollywood.

Really no point, there have been so many this year, all three categories would be bloated. Shrinking the category down to five choices as it is is a hard enough task.

Is there still a chance of separating "Remake","Sequel" and "Rip-Off" into 3?

Oh! Didn't notice...  

Is there still a chance of separating "Remake","Sequel" and "Rip-Off" into 3?Because I can tell "Horror Movie" won't happen with so many good horror movies this year.

While 2010 was full of bad rom-coms, it was also THE year that Hollywood was banking almost entirely on making money through gimmicks like adding 3-D surcharges or having a cast of 10 to 20 known celebrities. And the Razzies love sticking it to Hollywood for their cheap attempts to make money while trying to fix an open wound with a tiny band-aid.

Welcome,Vheid.

I'm confused.Most votes have gone to "Worst Romantic Comedy".Yet,in most of the other poll forums it has been sort of established that "Worst 3D Movie" and "Worst Ensemble" are a sure thing.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Scroll up and check the current results -- Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D has now pulled ahead of the Worst Excuse for a Rom/Com -- and Worst Screen Ensemble was never on any of our Forum polls, though it may end up being combined with Screen Couple into a single more-than-one-obnoxious-performer category...

Too bad. I was kind of fond of that idea.  

Just signed in for full membership, PayPal said that the transaction will be completed within 4-6 workdays.  

So if I become a member next week, am I in time to recieve this years nomination ballot? Or are those already sent out?
