The Oscars are done. The Blitz is over. All the films that I'm going to see for any of these purposes I've seen. There's just one last thing to do to officially wrap up 2021 in cinema, and that's to acknowledge the absolute bottom of the barrel. Please welcome, Billie Eilish! Just kidding. I'd never … Continue reading Just One More Thing… – 42nd Annual Razzies!
Tomorrow's the big day when the Academy finally makes their announcement for this year's Oscar nominations. But as happens every year, the Golden Raspberry Awards get to go on "Oscar Eve" as the Academy's self-described "ugly cousin," highlighting the absolute worst Hollywood had to offer in the previous year. For the third year running, I … Continue reading The Bruce Willis Show – 42nd Razzie Nominations!
Tomorrow night is Oscar Night, where the ostensible best in film will be celebrated with the industry's highest honor. However, as is tradition, on the eve of the ceremony, the world recognizes the absolute bottom of the barrel with the Golden Raspberry Awards! For the second straight year, I paid for a membership so I … Continue reading Absolute Poop – 41st Razzie Awards!
Tomorrow, we begin the annual celebration of the best of the best (or at least the best FYC campaigns). But as is tradition, on the eve of the Oscars Spotlight, it's time to take a dubious moment to "honor" the absolute worst of the worst with the Golden Raspberry Awards. In a year where everything … Continue reading The Suckiest Bunch of Sucks That Ever Sucked – 41st Razzie Nominations!
In the midst of all the rigmarole surrounding COVID-19 (I feel like I should be pronouncing it "co-VIDE" since it's short for "COrona VIrus Disease, but that would open up a whole other can of "gif/jif" worms), there's still one piece of cinematic business to deal with for 2019, even though it's literally the first … Continue reading The Cat-aclysm – 40th Razzie Awards Announced!
Normally, the Razzie nominations come out the day before the Oscars do, and are awarded the night before the Academy hands out their hardware. However, because of the accelerated AMPAS schedule, the Razzies, which are more of a fun gag than anything else, decided not to go along with the crowd, instead holding off the … Continue reading It’s a Cat-Tastrophe – 40th Annual Golden Raspberry Nominees Announced!
The Oscar nominations were announced today, and I'm chomping at the bit for my annual blitz. But strangely, one set of nominees has been missing from this year's awards cycle, that of the Golden Raspberries, or Razzies, "celebrating" the year's worst achievements in film with a spray-painted statue worth just under $5. Normally, the Razzie … Continue reading Back Row Thoughts: I Bought a Razzie Vote!
The Oscars are tomorrow night, and as promised, I'll get to my official predictions later this evening. But before I do, there are a few more undercard awards to hand out, which may or may not inform the results. But those are for another post coming later. Here we're only concerned about the worst of … Continue reading It Can Always Be Worse – 39th Razzie Awards Announced!
