First awarded in 1980 as a counterpart to the Oscars, the Golden Raspberry (or Razzie) Awards recognize the bad and the ugly in motion picture “achievements”.
Big winners for 2010 were “Sex & the City 2″ (worst actress shared by Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon; worst cast – the four aforementioned stars and everyone else; worst sequel), Ashton Kutcher (worst actor for not one but two films: “Valentine’s Day” and “Killers”) and “The Last Airbender” (M. Night Shyamalan’s loathed anime TV series adaptation – Mr. Night Shyamalan has successfully graduated from Oscar nominations to Razzie wins).
In the past, winners such as actress Halle Berry (”Catwoman”) and director Paul Verhoeven (”Showgirls”) embraced their wins, being consummate good sports. And in Verhoeven’s case, I would argue that “Showgirls” was a rather misunderstood cheesy satire and not an all-out execrable failure.
