Golden Raspberry Award anyone?

Posted by elegant On February - 10 - 2015

Imagine an award that rewards a bad movie of the year. That is exactly what the Golden Raspberry Awards or commonly called Razzies is all about. It recognizes worst movies of the year. Founded in 1980, the annual Razzies are held in Los Angeles usually a day before the Academy Awards. The award which is about the size of a raspberry that sits on a super 8mm film and spray painted with gold color. The first award ceremony was held on March 31, 1981 in the living room of the founder John J. B. Wilson and will hold its 35th ceremony on February 21, 2015.

The 2015 Golden Raspberry Award nominees include Transformers: Age of Extinction, Saving Christmas by Kirk Cameron, and The Legend of Hercules. In addition to the Worst Picture, the Razzies are also awarded for the Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Supporting Actress, Worst Screen Combo, Worst Screenplay, Worst Director and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. From time to time other awards such as Worst Career Award were also given. Some of the criticism of the award includes that members of the selection committee are not required to watch any of the nominations and anyone can join the Golden Raspberry Foundation.
