Razzie Nominations Announced; TRANSFORMERS and LAND OF THE LOST Tie with Seven Noms Each

     February 1, 2010


I don’t have much love for the Razzie Awards.  It’s not because I disagree with their choices as much as I find their choices predictable and safe.  Instead, they just phone it in with movies most people agree are terrible and then we move along with our day.  No controversy, no creativity, no reason to care.  Well, I don’t care.  Some people do just as some people think Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Land of the Lost are genuinely good movies even though they each scored seven Razzie nominations.

Other “worsts” include Old Dogs, All About Steve and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.  Acting nominations are even more non-sensical as they seem to pick actors in bad movies rather than bad performances.  Did people walk out of Bride Wars thinking Candice Bergen was one of the worst parts of that movie?  Was Will Ferrell one of the worst actors of the year because of Land of the Lost?  No, but this way you don’t have to actually watch movies and make an argument for these things.

Check out a full list of the nominees after the jump plus the nominees for Worsts of the Decade.  The losers will be announced on March 6th.
