The only suggestion I would make is that I really think the Razzies are going to have to add a category for animated films. There were enough qualifying films made this year to nominate 5 films for an Oscar, where in years past there were usually only 3 nominees. More and more of them are being made, and it naturally follows that a lot of them are going to be bad. We do discuss some of the worthy efforts here, but when nomination time rolls around, they usually get swamped by films that are more widely seen.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Problem is, there are almost never enough really RAZZIE® worthy contenders for Worst Animated Film to have any genuine competition or suspense as to what the nominees and/or "winners" might be. Sure, there may be 5 possible choices in any given year, but to make any category interesting, there really ought to be 10 or more possible contenders...

I'll suggest this category one last time, and then drop the subject: How about replacing Worst Screen Couple with Worst Ensemble Cast? It just covers more ground when the entire cast of a movie f***s up on an epic scale...  
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

Well, the Academy expanded their awards, why not us?
 
Might take a look at seperating sequels from remakes & ripoffs & TV adaptations?

I would love it if the Razzies would add a category for overrated films. As much fun as it can be to rip on obviously trashy features, I personally find it much more satisfying when undeserving films that are held in high regard get knocked off of their pedestals. I'm talking about movies like Babel, which get Best Picture nominations because of their subject matter and self-importance. These types admittedly aren't the "worst" films of the year, but it's refreshing to see them called out for what they are. A category like this could have been used to handle films such as Natural Born Killers (a film HeadRazz has expressed distate for himself on these forums) while still awarding the very worst in cinema.

My suggestion would be "Worst 'I'm Still Alive' Appearance of the Year." This would go to the actor or actress who's career has been on ice for decades, but some casting director out of sentiment or the need to find an old person who will work cheap, decides to cast them in a movie. The overwhelming reaction from the audience is, "Wow, he/she is still alive?"

Oh, and I think we need to bring back "Worst New Star." It seems like every week some no-talent himbo or bimbo is crowned the "next big thing"

And I agree with whomever mentioned a Worst Accent award...that would be a good one! Hollywood stars are so bad at accents.

I have some new categories here, too. Now, another Razzie for worst PR and worst off-screen couple would be Tommy Gurl and Shill Smith.

How about a Razzie for the worst nose job or the worst collagen lips or fake boobs? Or something like a category like "worst plastic surgery of the year, the Miss Michael Razzie?

I have another, very morbid idea that could indeed be considered tasteless: Now, one of these three
- Amy Winehouse
- Hohan
- NitBrit
deserves an award for self-destruction.
I mean, since NitBrit is the mother of the year, she can't be a winner. But Amy Winehouse who seems talented could do with one.
As for Hohan? Well, I guess her mother deserves the "White Oprah" of the year Razzie...

Oh, yes, HeadRAZZ, I am here with you and you have me for that. In fact that is a strong contender this year. Along with the worst film idea to push $cientology down Germany's throat by playing a "local hero". Just a sidenote, that Germany moved over to ban the yachtclub. I mean, how about a Razzie for the worst PR-move?

BTW: My favorite "twosome" for this category is now Tom Cruise and...Scientology!!!



I must say that I find the idea of the most aneroxic actress in a movie very appealing ( I even have a winner: Notalent Porkman). I like that. On the counterpart one would need something like the worst body-builder in a movie.

For all NitBrit lovers I have a special suggestion: How about the Mother-Of-The-Year-Razzie?

It could've been worse; they could've had the Chameleon in SPIDER-MAN 3. His power is great (the ability to copy any person's features), but he's a total dumb-ass. In his first crime, he tried to steal a two-part missile defense plan. He disguised himslef as Spider-Man to do it (NOTE: At this point Spider-Man was hated). He, also arranged for Spidey and the cops to be there, and guess what happened? Also, he was defeated by both Mary Jane and Aunt May. That, and he tried to pull a Larry Craig on Spidey.

Spidey 3 is unquestionably a mess. You know a film is in serious trouble in Spiderman's most impressive save in the whole film came at the very end, when he prevented Kirsten Dunst from belting out a second song.

I say we should have a "MILF Award" for hot moms. Especially since Naomi Watts and Jaime Pressly are new mothers. 

Response from Head RAZZberry: As offensive as the term "MILF" may be to many, the overall intent of such an award would arguably be flattery -- Something the have never been (and never will be) into...

Another career achievement award nominee...

How about Victor Mature???

(the quote comes from Wikipedia)

Mature was under no illusions about his acting prowess and was more modest about it than he perhaps deserved. Once, after being rejected for membership in a country club because he was an actor, he cracked, "I'm not an actor—and I've got 67 films to prove it!"

I have an idea for a new category.  How about handing out the GOLDEN COOKIE CUTTER RAZZIE AWARD?  This would be a special award given out to the most unoriginal movie that is NOT a remake or sequel, but might as well be.  In other words, a studio takes another movie's plot and slaps its own title on it.  Remember, Disney's the Wild was a cheap knock off of Madagascar.

Michael Jackson It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed
'cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight
You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
But all the while you hear the creature creeping up behind
You're out of time
'cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside of killer, thriller tonight
Night creatures call
And the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escaping the jaws of the alien this time
They're open wide
This is the end of your life
They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together
All through the night I'll save you from the terror on the screen
I'll make you see
That this is thriller, thriller night
'cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller
Thriller here tonight
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'all's neighbourhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of Hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzy ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the Thriller

None of the villains were as good as Willem Dafoe's Goblin, or Alfred Molina's Doc Ock. Spider-man cried like a little girl more than a hero should. Mary Jane was as annoying as ever, yeah, this was easily the worst of the trilogy.
