The Razzies Are Here At Last! And Not A Moment To Soon! And The Front Runner Is….Burlesque!!

Well it’s that time of year again, and It’s a sigh of relief to find that the shortlist of nominees for the 2011 Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced! For those a little less knowledgeable the Razzies are an anti-Oscar’s show of sorts, which celebrates the years worst films. And It looks like I’m not the only one that hated every dreaded second of Twilight : Eclipse and Sex And The City 2!


However, don’t get to excited because the full list of nominees are a little way of  and won’t be released until January 24. Thanks to the LA Times we have a the short list of nominees, and to be honest there’s no surprises amongst them — I mean Twilight is just asking for it…

Anyway, on to the nominees – leading the pack of rag-tag failures is Christina Aguliera‘s last-years bomb Burlesque, having already received a whopping five notches on the preliminary ballot. With several (soul-crushing) slightes against its name with nominations including Worst Screenplay, Worst Director, Worst Supporting Actor for Cam Gigandet, Worst Supporting Actress for both Kristen Bell and Cher and Worst Actress for Aguilera. Hmmm they might be on to something there…

Other actors potentially up for the panwagon of worst actor include Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Emily Blunt, George Lopez and Angelina Jolie, who ironically could be nominated for ‘The Tourist,’ in spite of her Golden Globe nomination for the same role. Which seems a bit odd, don’t you think?

Although (to there delight) Burlesque is not eligebable for worst picture, leaving it with it’s last a scrap of dignity — titles that are however up for the dishouners are;

Also this year ther Razzies have added a 3D section in honor of the 3D fad – which has spawned mostly crappy films…in 3D dimentions – that has hit the movie community the last year or so. This category has become neccasery because when movies added 3D in their name to justify a higher-priced ticket. A masterfull plan by the movie man! Nominees look to include Piranha 3D, Resident Evil: Afterlife, The Nutcracker in 3D and most likely even The Last Airbender and the box office success Clash of the Titans.

So that’s it from me for the moment, I will be on holiday for the coming week or so — and when I return the full list of nominees should be released. So catch ya later, and I hope to be getting back in the swing of things soon!
