On the other side of “the best” lurks “the worst,” which also deserves its day in the sun! 

Co-Founded by John Wilson and Mo Murphy, the Razzies began with an Oscar® Night ceremony so small it was actually staged in a living room alcove, a parody of that evening’s televised event. The Golden Raspberry (Razzie®) Awards have since grown into what E! On-Line recently called "the foremost authority on all things that suck on the big screen." Annually presenting Dis-Honors for Worst Achievements in Film since 1980 in categories ranging from the obvious (Worst Picture, Actor and Actress) to the obtuse (Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple) The Razzies® today receive television, radio and newspaper coverage around the world.

The yearly bestowing of Tinsel Town's Tackiest Trophy, is regularly covered by all three major worldwide news-wire services (AP, UPI and Reuters) CNN, major market TV network affiliates across the U.S. and on nationwide ABC, CBS, NBC and NPR network radio news. They also receive print coverage in Huffington Post, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter and People-on-Line Magazines. It has been estimated that the worldwide audience annually exposed to information about The Razzies® is approaching Two Billion People  - let's just say people know bad.

Contenders for the Razzies are selected by nearly 1,000 Voting Members including film professionals, critics and entertainment journalists and average movie-goers in 48 U.S. states and two dozen foreign countries. The criteria for choosing nominees include box office grosses (what did it cost/how much was lost) Rotten Tomatoes' Tomato-Meter Scores and the film-makers' history with the Razzie Awards.

Stay tuned as the Razzies expand beyond movies to satirize all-things-bad.

In other words, we know those who can, should do better.  Until then –
Razzies happen!
