A BRIEF HISTORY of THE RAZZIE® AWARDS:

 

Starting with an Oscar Night ceremony so small it was actually staged in a living room alcove, 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 Remake or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple) The RAZZIES® today receive television, radio and newspaper coverage around the world. Their yearly bestowing of Tinsel Town's Tackiest Trophies is regularly covered by all three major worldwide newswire services (AP, UPI and Reuters) CNN, major market TV network affiliates across the U.S. and on nationwide ABC, NBC and CBS Network Radio news. They also receive print coverage in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, Premiere and People-on-Line Magazines. It has been estimated that the worldwide audience annually exposed to information about The RAZZIES® is about One Billion People.

 

Founded by Lifelong Cine-Maniac and Cynic John Wilson, author of both 1995's EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES and the 2005 Warner Books release THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE (Listing 100 of The Berry Funniest Bad Movies Ever Made), the RAZZIES® are a light-hearted parody of award shows in general (and The Oscars in particular). The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation's well-aimed Darts of Derision have always been directed at Hollywood's High Profile Humiliations (rather than at the easier target of low-budget/drive-in fare). Worst Picture Dis-Honorees to date have included such Big Budget B.O. Bombs as HOWARD THE DUCK, HUDSON HAWK and CATWOMAN, as well as such Certified Camp Classics as MOMMIE DEAREST, SHOWGIRLS and BATTLEFIELD EARTH. "Winners" of RAZZIE® Awards for what they would argue was acting range from such Highly Regarded But Project-Misguided stars as Bill Cosb®y, Kevin Costner, Roberto Benigni and Laurence Olivier to such Top Name But Talent-Challenged performers as Madonna, Burt Reynolds, Prince, Brooke Shields, Bo Derek, RAZZIE® Poster Child Pia Zadora and All-Time RAZZIE® Champion (with an Impressive 10 wins -- And a Staggering 30 Nominations...to date!) Sylvester Stallone.

 

Poised to Prick The Movie Industry's Pomp for as long as Hollywood keeps on making High-Profile Howlers, The RAZZIES® are now looking forward to their 26th Annual Ceremonies in March, 2006 -- And to pursuing a development deal for finally getting one of the world's funniest awards shows broadcast.

Me Against the Music

Britney: Do as I say, not as I do?

by Gary Susman

           

2002 Worst Actress RAZZIE® “Winner" Britney Spears acknowledges that her skin-baring, Madonna-smooching ways may not make her the best role model, but she says some of her contemporaries are even worse.

 

''Why? Why are they mad at me?'' she says to Newsweek, in reference to angry moms like Maryland First Lady Kendal Ehrlich, who recently said in a speech she'd shoot the singer if she could. (She has since apologized for the remark.) ''Why are they not going at Christina Aguilera? Have they seen what she has on?'' She says she knows it sounds bratty for her to complain, ''but Beyoncé dresses provocatively. Why don't they say something about her? What is too sexy to them? My family, we walked around the house naked, we really did. By the time I was 13, my dad was like, 'Uh, Britney, it's time to start covering yourself up.' I'm very free like that.''

 

Still, she says, she's going to tone down the sexuality for a while, even though she has a new album to promote, ''In the Zone,'' and has been appearing on covers of magazines like Esquire wearing very little. ''I did feel kind of weird after those photos,'' she says of the Esquire shoot. ''I learned my lesson and you won't see me like that for a while. I'm kinda over it myself. Not that it's dirty or tacky, but it is really revealing and I wouldn't want my kid, at 21, to be dressing like that.''

 

She's also avoiding relationships, despite rumors (which she denies) that she's dating a married member of her backup dance troupe. She blames her ex, Justin Timberlake, for his televised revelation that he took her virginity. ''Justin said it on 'Barbara Walters,''' she says. ''The world knew after he frickin' told them all. What am I supposed to say, 'No, I didn't'? Can you say I'm a little bitter with men? Just a little.'' She adds, ''There was a time when I was like, 'OK, I'm over men. They're mean.' For like six months, not a single thing happened. Not like they weren't drawn to me, but there wasn't a single real attraction. I'm like, 'What's happening? I know I'm not a lesbian.''' Still, she tells Newsweek: ''My personal life is no one's business.'' Thanks for clearing that up.

Will Studios' Ban on Oscar Voters' DVDs Mean RAZZIE Screeners Instead??



by Head RAZZberry JOHN WILSON



In a controversial decision, the MPAA has announced that in its efforts to prevent movie piracy, it has negotiated an agreement among all the major Hollywood studios to ban the dissemination of "screener" tapes and DVDs of this year's expected Oscar contenders.

While so-called "Academy Screeners" are covered by this new arrangement, it was unclear at press time whether or not screeners of likely RAZZIE contenders might also be covered. In the past, G.R.A.F. voters have had to rely on pay-per-view showings and/or local video store rentals to determine whether Madonna or J. Lo ranked as The Year's Worst Actress. But with studios prohibited from sending tapes and DVDs to AMPAS members, it is now possible that, to maintain any Awards momentum they can, studios might turn instead to sending out screeners of such likely Worst Picture nominees as FREDDY vs. JASON, LARA CROFT: CRADLE OF LIFE, and, of course, GIGLI.  Since the new MPAA ban does not apply to titles already on video at the time award voters are determining nominees and winners, it will not affect such Rushed-to-Video titles as DADDY DAY CARE, CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE and the other big RAZZIE Title of 2003, FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY.

To clarify his Foundation's take on the matter, RAZZIE Founder John Wilson declared: "We welcome the kind of pandering, vote-buying tactics that have always personified the REAL awards shows. So far, the only perk of being a RAZZIE Member has been knowing that we dishonored only the MOST deserving. If we start getting wined-and-dined by Tinsel Town big shots, it's suddenly a whole new ballgame. We of course welcome any tools the studios can provide in helping our members determine which of 2003's bumper crop of crappy movies actually is The Very Worst."

MPAA President and spokesman Jack Valenti, who like most of Hollywood's biggest names, refuses to even acknowledge the existence of the RAZZIE Awards, did not return calls for comment.

Over-exposed, media-phobic 2003 Worst Actress front-runner Jennifer Lopez was also not available to discuss the decision's possible impact on her award chances. Likely Worst Actress co-nominee Kelly Clarkson, who has reached the 14 minute point in her 15 minutes of fame, was also unwilling to speak on record.

It's Splitsville for "Bennifer": Sources Close to 2003's  Most Over-Publicized Couple Report a Break-Up


2003 RAZZIE front-runners for Worst Screen Couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, who just days ago were planning their weekend wedding, have split up, sources close to the couple tell PEOPLE. The break-up comes in the wake of their decision Wednesday to postpone their Sunday wedding in Montecito, Calif., before as many as 400 guests. The couple blamed the delay on excessive media attention surrounding the event, but reports persisted that Affleck was having second thoughts about the nuptials. A PEOPLE source says it was Affleck who initiated the split.


While it was unclear whether the separation was permanent, Lopez was "devastated," according to one friend. The star was in tears, sources said, on Wednesday as she called guests telling them of the wedding's postponement. Lopez, accompanied by friends and a bodyguard, went for a very public jog and swim -- at one point changing into a bathing suit behind a phalanx of towel-bearing guards -- Saturday afternoon along Miami's South Beach, not far from her 11-bedroom house in Miami Beach, where she flew solo on Friday from Los Angeles. Affleck was believed to still be in Los Angeles, though some reports had him heading to Las Vegas for Saturday night's Shane Mosely-Oscar De La Hoya fight.

The split caps a tumultuous summer for the couple, whose romance became public in July 2002 just days after she divorced Cris Judd. They have endured brutal reviews for their performances in the film "GIGLI," which appears poised to sweep next spring's 24th Annual RAZZIE Awards. While tabloid reports have accused Affleck of misbehaving with strippers during a late-night visit to a Vancouver nightclub (reports he vehemently denied) Lopez publicly stuck by her fiancee (" for me, it wasn't an issue," she told W Magazine), and plans continued apace for their wedding -- his first, her third.

Ken Sunshine, Affleck's spokesman, said he had no knowledge of a split. Lopez' spokesman Dan Klores said he believed the couple was still together, but had not spoken to Lopez in several days. Both spokes-persons declined to comment on the couple's possibly being reunited as RAZZIE contenders when 2003's Worst Achievements in Film nominations are unveiled next January 26.

During their time together, the pair -- who met on the set of the godawful "GIGLI" -- generated worldwide attention, costarring in a sexy music video for her song "Jenny from the Block" and purchasing each other obnoxiously extravagant gifts, including a Rolls-Royce, a Harry Winston bracelet of white and yellow diamonds and 6.1 carat pink diamond solitaire Affleck gave Lopez as an engagement ring. Nevertheless, they thought of themselves as working-class kids -- she from the Bronx, he from Boston -- who shared similar values. As a teetotaler, Lopez was also seen as healthy for Affleck, who is a recovering alcoholic.

The couple will be together again: on screen in their second costarring vehicle, " Jersey Girl," which is set for release next year, and probably among those nominated for RAZZIES as 2003's Berry Worst.

What One French Kiss Can Lead To...

2002 Worst Actress RAZZIE Co-Winners  Britney Spears and Madonna

have recorded a new duet: “Me Against the Music,'' the first single from Spears' new album

by Gary Susman



 

TOGETHER AGAIN: Spears and Madonna go mouth-to-mouth once more


Guess Britney Spears just can't get enough of her 2003 Worst Actress RAZZIE co-winner Madonna. Following up on their much-hyped French Kiss at The MTV Video Awards, they'll be putting their mouths together again when they sing a duet of Spears' new song, ''Me Against the Music,'' the first single from her forthcoming album, which finally has a title, ''Get in the Zone,'' Spears' label, Jive Records, announced Tuesday.

Fans who saw Spears' performance at the NFL season kickoff special two weeks ago, as well as the handful who saw her unannounced striptease performance over the weekend in Las Vegas, have already heard Spears' solo version of the tune. Cowritten by Spears and produced by RedZone, ''Me Against the Music'' will ship to radio on Sept. 30 and see its video debut on MTV's ''Making the Video'' on Oct. 13.

Other collaborators on the album, seven of whose 13 songs Spears cowrote, will include such songwriters and producers as Moby (''Early Mornin'''), Bloodshy & Avant (''Showdown''), Guy Sigsworth (''Everytime''), and R. Kelly (''Outrageous'').


It's not clear whether some other recent tracks Spears has recorded, including ''The Answer'' (with P. Diddy) and "Shadow'' (with The Matrix), will also appear on the new disc. ''Get in the Zone'' is being released a week ahead of schedule, on Nov. 18. Given Britney and Madonna’s RAZZIE track records, we’re betting that  the single’s title “Me Against the Music” means the music’s GOTTA lose in the end!

I'm Not a Girl...Nor a Woman?

Britney Spears' new songs channel sexual frustration. She tells Rolling Stone

that her new album may be full of sex because her dating life isn't

by Gary Susman



 
'OUTRAGEOUS' FORTUNE

Spears sings a sexed-up R. Kelly song


To hear her tell it, the only action 2003 Worst Actress RAZZIE co-winner Britney Spears has gotten lately is from her Worst Actress co-winner Madonna. The newly sexed-up singer appears topless on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, but inside the magazine, she suggests that her current love life is a snore, and that she's been sublimating her libido into her work. ''I think this record is where I'm at right now in my life. It's sensual, it's sexual,'' she told the magazine, then laughed. ''I'm probably writing about that subconsciously because I don't have that right now.''

One song on her forthcoming album is by the typically sexually assertive R. Kelly; it's called ''Outrageous'' and has the singer whispering about ''my sex drive.'' The album includes such lyrics as, ''Oh, it's so hot, and I need some air/And, boy, don't stop, 'cause I'm halfway there,'' and ''Would you undo my zipper, please?'' and ''I find myself flirting with the verge of obscene.''

Still, Spears insists her new display of sexuality is done tastefully. ''I'm not gonna come out on this record and show my crotch or anything,'' she says. ''That's not me. I would never do anything like that. It's all in the way you do stuff, all in the way you carry things. The music is most important to me.'' Even that notorious French kiss with Madonna at last month's MTV Video Music Awards was actually marked by restraint, Rolling Stone reports; in rehearsal, Madonna also planned to give Britney a playful slap on the ass.

Madonna: Bedtime Stories of a DIFFERENT Kind?


By Paul Majendie


LONDON (Reuters) - Harry Potter taught kids around the world the joy of reading. Now 9-time RAZZIE "winner" Madonna is going global in the thriving kids' book business with a publishing first: The pop superstar's first children's book -- "The English Roses" -- is being published simultaneously in more than 100 countries and 30 languages.

State-of-the-art technology has sent language barriers tumbling so printing plants around the world can spring into action in every tongue from French to Faroese. "This is a publishing first with regard to numbers of languages and territories," said Nicholas Callaway, President of the New York-based Callaway Editions, the originating publisher, who has coordinated the global release. "We have languages as varied as Chinese and Czech, Thai and Turkish, Hebrew and Hungarian," he told Reuters. Internet advances have shrunk the globe. "This would not have been technically possible 18 months ago. We send so many digital files through the Internet," Callaway added.

More than one million copies are hitting bookstores around the world at once, backed by a marketing blitz that takes Madonna from London to Paris, then on to the Oprah Winfrey talk show in the United States.

  Critics may carp at the spotlight focusing on Madonna, a self-described genius at both spotting and setting pop and fashion trends. Helen Fraser, managing director of Penguin Books who will be publishing the book in Britain, concedes that cynics will grumble about hype as the 45-year-old mother of two bursts into print after years as a raunchy pop icon and failed movie star. Her only previous book was the graphically illustrated coffee table S&M tome, SEX. "Whenever somebody as famous as Madonna does something, cynics will use the "H" word," she told Reuters. Fraser apparently was referring to "hype" and not "whore," -- which actually starts with a "w."

  Fraser insists that the book -- the first of five written by Madonna for kids -- will "appeal to people from eight to 80, not just dirty old men like her SEX book!"

CALIFORNIA’S RAZZIE® WORTHY RECALL RACE

by John Wilson

(Founder and Head RAZZberry of The RAZZIE Awards)

   You know there’s a screw loose somewhere in California’s political process when the current gubernatorial recall campaign (a.k.a. the biggest three-ring political circus since Barnum and Bailey) features three contenders for the state’s highest office whose past credentials include being RAZZIE Award nominees.

 

   Among those adding their names to what could end up being a 35-page recall ballot this fall are 1989 Worst Supporting Actress contender Angelyne and 1981 Worst Actor and Worst New Star nominee Gary Coleman.

 

   A 45 year-old “pin-up” girl who buys billboard ads all over L.A. touting her “talents,” Angelyne is actually one step down from the current cliché of “famous for being famous.” If she’s known at all outside RAZZIE circles, she could be called “semi-famous for being a wee-bit famous” – An ersatz Zsa Zsa Gabor, with even LESS talent than Gabor’s got. She has, however, got the best slightly off-color slogan of all the candidates filing so far: “California’s had enough Gray and Brown, now it’s time for pink!” If this election is destined to become a joke, it might as well become one with obvious surgical enhancements, in keeping with California’s image as The Plastic Surgery Capitol of the World.

 

   Also throwing his newsboy hat in the ring is former child star Coleman, who’s been mostly out of the limelight since the sit-com DIFF’RENT STROKES was cancelled in 1986. In 1999, he declared himself bankrupt, then told US Magazine that he was a 30-year-old virgin. Which led to him working as a security guard at a mini mall. Which led to his being accused of beating up a fan who came to the mini-mall to get his autograph. Which led to his appearing in an E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY about the tragedy that was his own life. Which led to his recent appearance on the cable “reality” show STAR DATES, trying to get a date with a “non-celebrity” (who hopefully hadn’t seen his 1999 virginity declaration).

 

   Only in as politically competitive a state as California could such sterling credentials as Angelyne’s and Coleman’s have gone un-rewarded by an informed electorate for so long. But topping the list of showbiz wannabes who now wanna be governor is multiply-RAZZIE-nominated  “actor” Arnold Schwarzenegger. Best known for playing hired assassins, vigilantes, murderous robots and the title role of CONAN THE BAVARIAN, “Ah-nuld” may actually have a chance at winning the governorship. Everyone in America (let alone California) had better be ready to get good-and-tired of wince-inducing wordplays on “Hasta la vista, baby,” “I’ll be back!” and “Total Recall.” And if he wins, he may be the first California governor ever to require English subtitles at all his press conferences.

 

   But anyone who enjoys a juicy supermarket read probably can’t wait to see what the tabloids dig up on THE LAST ACTION ZERO. One of the foremost reasons Schwarzenegger was said to be leaning against running was this very subject: How will Maria Shriver (who IS, after all, a Kennedy…kinda sorta) deal with seeing digitally enhanced photos of her hubby in the arms of everyone and anyone THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER (or better yet, THE GLOBE!) can think to pair him with? And, most importantly of all, will The Uber-nator accept when THE GLOBE’s prime political pundit Bat Boy offers him his endorsement, in exchange for Arnold confessing that he’s fathered a child with an alien?

 

  But pictorials revealing both his pectorals and his many reputed peccadilloes may not be The Terminator’s biggest drawback as a candidate. One of the longest running gags of the RAZZIES’ first 23 years has been the question of which is the bigger embarrassment: Being nominated for a RAZZIE…or not even “winning” one? I’m already wondering what happens when the media realize that, although nominated a record seven times, Arnold has never even been able to win a RAZZIE. This guy is supposed to be the savior of the Golden State GOP, yet he can’t even manage to win a Golden Raspberry Award after seven shots at one?

 

   So maybe everything will end up okay after all. Or maybe California’s term-limit laws will have to be what do in THE TERMINATOR. And maybe the RAZZIES should consider expanding its categories to include the committee that wrote California’s eminently Razz-able recall laws in the first place!

Critics Toss Bricks at Ben & Jen's Movie

STEPHEN M. SILVERMAN


Get out the Razzies!. The reviews are out, and nobody seems to have a kind word for "Gigli." Just in case you haven't heard, "Gigli," which isn't pronounced the way it looks (but, rather, "Jee-lee"), is a romantic gangster comedy starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, who met on the set and began their storied romance.

But, apparently, what happened offscreen is better than what the stars and their director, Martin Brest ("Beverly Hills Cop," "Meet Joe Black"), left behind.

"'Gigli' is a disaster," declares New York's Daily News, which awards the movie one star (out of four) and tosses the "crude black comedy" on the same funeral pyre as such all-time turkeys as "Ishtar," "Howard the Duck" and "Battlefield Earth."

Reuters, reporting that the flick is being called a low point in movie history -- in the annals of Madonna's "Swept Away" and Mariah Carey's "Glitter" -- singles out one of the movie's more embarrassing moments, a love scene in which Lopez reportedly spreads her legs and informs Affleck, "It's turkey time. Gobble, gobble."

"The 'Gigli' is Up," reported Wednesday's New York Post, which added: "Ben-Jen bomb was made for walking."

The Los Angeles Times, though adhering to the informal industry rule that movies shouldn't be reviewed until the day they open, has tracked the movie's path to disaster, including reputed clashes at a preview screening between director Brest and the head of the studio, Revolution chief Joe Roth, over the finale of the film and its overall pace.

Even though the beach-blanket movie "From Justin to Kelly," based on FOX's "American Idol," grossed only $5 million at the box office when it quickly came and went a few weeks ago, the "Stinker of the Summer" label has been permanently affixed to "Gigli."

The movie opened to derisive reviews and disappointing business this weekend, bringing in only $3.8 million and landing at No. 7 on the Friday-Sunday Top 10 list, according to studio estimates. Actually, "derisive" and "disappointing" are kind adjectives, considering the reaction to the picture, in which Affleck plays a small-time mobster and Lopez plays a midriff-baring lesbian crook.

So low was the turnout for the picture that The New York Times headlined its story: "J.Lo and Affleck Finally Get Some Privacy." The Times reports that the film is not likely to recoup its $54 million cost, and the next Ben-Jen vehicle, "Jersey Girl," has seen its release date pushed back from later this year to the beginning of next year. Analysts credit the move as a means to distance "Jersey Girl" from "Gigli."

Assessing the disaster, Tom Sherak, a principal at the film's producer, Revolution Studios, tells Reuters: "We couldn't separate the movie from their real lives. You don't look at them as actors in this movie. You look at them as Jen and Ben." And critics just didn't like looking at them, at least not in this vehicle, written and directed by Martin Brest ("Meet Joe Black").

A "hopelessly misconceived exercise in celebrity self-worship," wailed The Times, while The Washington Post called it "enervated, torpid, slack, dreary and, oh yes, nasty, brutish and long." Still, the trade paper Variety was kind, saying "Gigli" was "a silly but enjoyably written and performed romantic comedy."  Well, SOMEONE had to like it!

All That RAZZ!

Ogle The 23rd RAZZIES on Video,

Double-Billed w/Berry Funny

Bad Movie Classic ‘THE OSCAR’

 

See Our Snazziest Ever Opening Number!

See Madonna & Britney Duke It Out for 2002's WORST!

 PLUS See a Rarely-Shown Sleazy 1966 Hollywood

Howl-Fest About That OTHER Award Show!

 

 War may have broken out three days BEFORE this year’s RAZZIE Awards, but the ceremony itself was a Battle Royal between two Top Pop-Divas-Who-Can’t Act: Madonna and Britney Spears.  Starting off with a rip-rousing Opening Number (“Velma” Kelie McIver performing a Fosse-esque version of “All That RAZZ!” accompanied by Golden RAZZberry Dancers Chip Dornell and Glenn Simon) the show then ripped-and-tore its way through 11 RAZZIE Categories in under  57 minutes. And at 7pm on Saturday, July 12th at Razzie HQ, you can join us for a Laugh-Filled Living Room Drive-In Double Feature of The 23rd Annual RAZZIE Awards on video, paired with One of the Movies That People Who LOVE Bad Movies Love Best: Stephen Boyd, Elke Sommer, Jill St. John, Tony Bennett(!) and An All-Has-Been Cast in THE OSCAR.

 

  Although no “winners” showed up for this year’s RAZZ-Fest, one of the biggest laughs came when one of Madonna’s “wins” WAS Accepted in Absentia by a Cardboard Effigy of Our Female Cham-peen. Other Hi-Lites of The 23rd RAZZIES include Our Cast’s Loose-Lipped “Dubbing” of a clip from Worst Picture Nominee PINOCCHIO, Mr. Dornell and Mr. Simon teaming to trash our 3 Worst Song contenders with Totally Twitter-Pated Terpsichory, and a SURPRISE result when the envelope for Worst Actress was opened (NOTE: If you wish to be surprised on July 12th, DON’T read the List of “Winners” on Page Two of this Newsletter!).

 

  Our SECOND Feature on July 12th is a Howl-a-Minute Classic about Hedonism in Hollywood that’s SO Wonderfully Bad that it’s almost NEVER screened anywhere anymore: THE OSCAR. Starring the late Stephen Boyd as a “Best Actor” Oscar nominee (giving a performance that would’ve GUARANTEED him  OUR Top Actor Award!) it opens with Boyd attending a cheezily-staged FAKE 1960s Oscar-Cast (complete with Bob Hope and Five Bogus “Best Actor” Nominees!). As “Frankie Fain” sweats out the ceremony, his Ex-Best Friend “Hymie Kelly” (!!) recalls Every Rotten Thing Frankie Ever Did to reach the top of “that glass mountain called success.” Complete with universally hammy acting, striptease routines, knife-fights, fist fights, bullfights and bullshit galore, THE OSCAR also features Ernest Borgnine, Edie Adams, Milton Berle,  Joseph Cotten and Peter Lawford in supporting roles plus Edith Head, Merle Oberon, Nancy Sinatra and Frank Sinatra as “themselves” in cameo appearances.

The WORST Kind of G-O-S-S-I-P!!

 

WHICH WOULD BRING HIS CAREER TOTAL to 33 NOMINATIONS!  In the soon-to-be-unleashed SPY KIDS 3-D, Our Awl-Time Male Cham-Peen Sylvester Stallone will get a chance to break his current tie with Madonna (each have “won” RAZZIES 9 times!). He takes another stab at comedy (oh-oh!) and plays FOUR ROLES: A Mad Scientist, a Hippie, A Dictator...and a Nerdy TV Reporter (See Photo Above). Since we’ve always been willing to stretch the rules where Duh Sly Guy is concerned, maybe this year he deserves FOUR Worst Supporting Actor nods??

 

MAYBE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS THE ‘SOME-DUNCE’ FILM FESTIVAL?? Reports from last Winter’s Sundance Film Festival had 2002 Worst Actress co-“winner” Britney Spears utterly pissing off 1993 Worst Actor nominee and Sundance founder Robert (INDECENT PROPOSAL) Redford by attending a screening with several Giggly Gal Pals. Britney and Her Bimbo Posse chatted on cell phones throughout -- And then loudly walked out before the movie was over. “If looks could kill!” said One Hollywood Insider who was there...

 

IF YOU CAN’T STAND THE HEAT -- GET OUT of THE MOVIES! “Access Hollywood” interviewed our OTHER 2002 Worst Actress co-“winner” shortly after our 23rd RAZZIE Awards were held -- And they actually asked her to respond to SWEPT AWAY’s 5-Award “sweep.” Poor little Madonna declared she was “deeply hurt!”...but would gladly work with her RAZZIE “winning” director/hubby Guy Ritchie again “in a heartbeat.” Our only question to The Immaterial Mom: Who on EARTH would even consider financing THAT collaboration again?!?!

'South Park' Team knocks on wood at Paramount
Parker, Stone, Brady prep 'Thunderbirds'-inspired film
 
By
MICHAEL FLEMING

The team behind "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut" has regrouped at Paramount Pictures for "Team America." "We will be sophisticated and employ all modern technology," said producer Scott Rudin. "We have gone well beyond the paper cutouts used in the last movie. Here, the entire cast will be made of wood!"

As in puppets.

Written by "Park" scribes Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Pam Brady and directed by Parker, R-rated comedy "Team America" is a send-up of what they feel is an increasingly brainless action genre. Stone and Rudin will produce.

The inspiration for the cast is the British series "Thunderbirds," also the inspiration for a Universal-Working Title feature now in production.

"Our cast will be deliberately made of wood, but that will only be taking to the extreme what is evident in many Hollywood movies right now," said Stone. "I hate all these new Hollywood films that are CGI-driven. Trey and I loved the 'Thunderbirds' series because of the artistry of the marionettes. It's amazing that a studio would make a movie out of it and take out the only thing that was good about the series."

The plot will involve the prototypical action hero, who's drafted to help Team America thwart the world's evil forces. The movie idea was the byproduct of an even more daring movie idea the team came up with."What we wanted was to do a send-up of these super important huge action movies that Jerry Bruckheimer makes," Stone said. "It started when we got snuck a script of 'The Day After Tomorrow,' the Roland Emmerich movie about how global warming causes an ice age in two days. It's the kind of script where you know it's going to make hundreds of millions of dollars, which makes it the greatest dumb script ever.

"We planned to secretly shoot that movie with puppets, word for word, and release it on the same day. We thought that would have been hilarious, but our lawyer convinced us we wouldn't get it released."

Cast splinters

That sparked the marionette action genre, which, said Parker, provides more opportunities for comedy. Fatalities are funny, they say, when the victims are made of wood. Expect much of the cast to get splintered in the high action. "We hate those actors who take themselves so seriously and think they are a productive and important part of society," Parker said. "The subtle joke here is that all actors are puppets. This will probably piss off everyone in town, and might well be our swan song."

The duo will shoot the movie when they take a break from the next cycle of the "South Park" series. The film will cost in the vicinity of the "South Park" film, which cost $20 million and grossed $60 million.

Beach Blanket Stinko

Don't go in the water with Kelly and Justin




American Awful: Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini should be ashamed.

FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY. With Justin Guarini, Kelly Clarkson. Directed by Robert Iscove. 95 mins. Rated PG: Mild language, sensuality.


The Simon Cowell in me wants to say to last year's "American Idol" winner Kelly Clarkson and runner-up Justin Guarini that their performances in the spring-break movie "From Justin to Kelly" are just awful.

Dreadful. Possibly the worst pro acting debuts I've ever seen.

But that distracts from the film itself, which is more than awful, more than dreadful, and easily the worst beach movie ever made.

Yep, worse than "Beach Blanket Bingo," worse than "Sizzle Beach, USA," and way worse than the recent reality bust "The Real Cancun," which at least had titillation value.

Squeaky-clean shenanigans

Despite its PG rating, "From Justin to Kelly" is the Good Ship Lollipop of wanton youth movies: It's modest, drug-free and as chaste as a church outing. This is the spring-break film college kids will be sending their parents for Christmas, with a little note:

"See, nothing happens."

On the first day of their vacation in Fort Lauderdale - in the middle of the first of several jaw-droppingly bad musical numbers staged on the sand: Redheaded beanpole Justin and bottom-heavy Kelly spot each other and spend the rest of the movie being kept apart by her devious girlfriend Alexa (Katherine Bailess).

Occasionally, they stop and lip-sync, sometimes to lyrics that are actually appropriate, though you wouldn't know it if the sound was turned down. Neither Justin nor Kelly has an inkling how to feign emotion.

The songs, by the way, are generic pop ick, the lifeblood of "American Idol" itself.

To answer the big question, Justin and Kelly do kiss eventually, but it's not the kind of kiss that would lead to anything lasting, or even spring-breakish. It's awful.
Dreadful. Maybe the worst I've ever seen.

A Green Giant and a Beach Blanket Bummer

By Howard Rosenberg

American Idiots

It's inspiring to see the big screen embrace those who achieved their biggest fame on little old television. Ang Lee's "Hulk" and "From Justin to Kelly" both arrived in theaters Friday.

According to most accounts, the latter is scarier than the former.

"Hulk" is moviedom's version of a comic-book green giant who became "The Incredible Hulk" on CBS from 1979 to 1982, with average-sized Bill Bixby ballooning into panoramic Lou Ferrigno whenever he got teed off.

Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini are those singing "American Idol" kids, a pair of new-millennium icons whose quickie stardom on Fox gave "clean cut" a questionable name and led to this instant movie meant to capitalize on their popularity with the young crowd, before they flame out. It's being sold in ads promising "the musical event of the summer!"

Which tells you something about this summer.

To say nothing of the dumb-and-dumber descent of the television era that generated these two beach balls who make Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello look like movie-musical Titans.

"Everyone knows we did it in six weeks," Clarkson told Fox News Channel on Friday, sounding almost giddy beside Guarini, whom she edged out in last year's "American Idol" competition. She disagreed that it was a bad omen when the movie was withheld from critics so they couldn't write about it prior to its release.

"We didn't to it for the critics," she said of their movie. "We did it for the fans."
If trailers for a beachfront production number are an indication, she means fans of camp.

Of course, it gets only worse. Hoping to expand the audience-friendly creative void of "American Idol" into a whopper franchise pinpointing all younger age groups (Guarini is 23, Clarkson 21), Fox earlier this month spun off "American Juniors," pitting still-younger performers, and their parents, against each other. And, yikes, its ratings were also impressive.

What follows on this assembly line of look-alikes? "American Infant," with participants wowing the judges, viewers and host Ryan Seacrest by dirtying diapers to pop music? Or perhaps "American Fetus," if Fox can work out the ultrasound.

 

Theater Owners Force Fox to Reconsider JUSTIN TO KELLY's Fast DVD Date
Theatre owners balked at booking the made-to-make-a-quick-buck 20th Century Fox movie FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY -- Not after seeing how awful the film is, but after seeing red upon learning that Fox planned to release it on DVD just six weeks after it ran in theaters, the Wall Street Journal recently reported. The movie, scheduled for release on June 20, stars Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini, the talent-free winner and runner-up respectively in the first season of AMERICAN IDOL. According to the newspaper, theater owners were concerned that studios may decide to use a similar strategy with other films in order to boost DVD sales. Noting that the average "window" from theatrical release to DVD release is about five months, the Journal indicated that theater owners were terrified that if moviegoers became aware that the DVD would be released in only a short time, they would skip the in-theater experience. Fox execs, in a lame defense of their decision, claimed that the quickly produced movie was an attempt to exploit the popularity of the series while it is still fresh in the minds of audiences -- as was the quick release of the DVD. But after some of the country's largest exhibitors threatened to refuse bookings of the film on the grounds that even moviegoers dumb enough to consider seeing the film might still be smart enough to simply wait six weeks for the video to appear, 20th Century Fox decided to postpone the DVD release until September. Which means FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY will still be on DVD in time to be screened by RAZZIE Members before Nominating Ballots for The 24th Annual RAZZIES are due next Spring...

 
 

MADONNA to PEOPLE Magazine: “Dress like Britney and Think Like Me!”

 

SWEPT AWAY, the couple's critically panned film, was pulled from theaters only three weeks after its release. "Everybody wants to know, 'God, weren't you really bummed out by the reaction?' Yes, I was," she says. "But did it affect my relationship with my husband? No. If our relationship couldn't have handled the failure of that movie, what would have been the basis of it?" Besides, she says they had fun filming it. "Contrary to what people think," she says, "I take direction very well."

 

 "I symbolize the American dream, someone who came from nothing and then supposedly had everything. But did I? Is the American dream everything? I think the answer is no. There's more." Not only that, but the former Material Girl — whose personal fortune is estimated at more than $300 million — says she has changed her tune. "Don't get me wrong. It's fabulous I have these beautiful homes and paintings," she says. "But the most important thing in life is love. I know it sounds corny, but everybody knows it's true."

           

For now, Madonna is looking ahead, hoping to make another movie — "There's a completely original musical I want to do, a bit of an extravaganza" — and trying not to scrutinize herself too closely. "At one point I only cared about clothes and boys and french fries," she says. "I've grown. I've discovered things I had no idea of when I was in my 20s." Among them: the value of inner peace — and the fact that fashion trendsetting is best left to those with more youthful Blonde Ambition. "I don't want people to dress like me anymore," she says. "Now I want them to think like me. Dress like Britney Spears and think like me, and everything will be fine."

EXCERPTED* FROM: AIN'T IT COOL NEWS
by "Mean Mr. Mustard"

Tonight I was one of the lucky few to see a test screening of a film that is so bad, so God awful, and so painful to sit through that I seriously think it's flat out unreleasable. The film…GIGLI. Yes, the film with J. LoBen, and a retard (forgive me if I'm not being Mr. Sensitive while I vent out my frustrations).  It doesn't matter what this film is called, or how many more title changes it will likely go through before it's finally released, it still an unreleasable PIECE OF SHIT!  And to prove my point, I did some research on the film's release date, and for some reason, it keeps getting pushed back. It was originally scheduled for November, 2002, then December, 2002, then it moved to May 9th, 2003, then to July 11th, 2003, now it's scheduled for August 1st, 2003.

And the dialog! Tough Love has some of the most truly God-awful dialog ever heard on screen. Ricki has a 5 minute monolog about "my pussy" which is even more degrading and embarrassing than Liz Berkley's "I am not whore…" speech in SHOWGIRLS. I'm actually surprised that J. Lo didn't take a stand and say to director Martin Brest… "You don't really expect me to say those lines, do you?" unless that scene was improved by J. Lo, in which case, the editor should have taken a stand…"You don't really expect to leave in that scene, do you?"  I can go on and on about the script, but I think you get the idea.

And the acting. Folks, if we fast forward to the end of 2003, then there is no doubt in my mind that Ben and J. Lo will walk away with RAZZIES for their performances (and this POS has to be a front runner for Worst Picture). Ben plays Gigli with a tough guy NY  Chazz Palminteri dialect that goes in and out and in and out. To call his performance inconsistent would be an understatement. J. Lo on the other hand is the exact opposite. Every word, phrase, and line out of her mouth, whether it's coming on to Gigli, comforting the retard, standing up to Al Pacino, or that really embarrassing "pussy" monolog is said in the exact same low pitched smokey monotone. Clint Eastwood could get away with this style because his face and eyes say everything his voice doesn't but J. Lo, WHAT IN THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?

RAZZIES 'Swept Away' by Madonna Movie

 

By DAVID GERMAIN

.c The Associated Press

 

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie swept away the competition at the Razzies, an annual spoof of the Academy Awards singling out the worst achievements in film.

 

``Swept Away,'' the island-romance bomb that starred Madonna and was written and directed by Ritchie, took five Razzie Awards on Saturday, among them worst picture of 2002.

 

Madonna tied for worst actress with fellow pop queen Britney Spears, who made her starring debut in ``Crossroads,'' another worst-picture contender.

 

Ritchie was chosen worst director, while ``Swept Away'' earned Madonna a second award for worst screen couple with co-star Adriano Giannini. A remake of an acclaimed Italian film about a rich snob stranded with a hunky sailor, Madonna's ``Swept Away'' also received the trophy for worst remake or sequel.

 

Madonna was named worst supporting actress for her brief cameo as a fencing instructor in the James Bond flick ``Die Another Day,'' for which she also sang the theme song.

 

``She's not even in the movie for two minutes, but she's so awful in that one scene, that for the whole rest of the movie, you cannot forget that your eyes and ears have been assaulted with the stupidity of her appearance,'' said Razzies founder John Wilson.

 

Madonna's latest Razzies bring her career total to nine, tying her with Sylvester Stallone for most awards ever. Three years ago, the Razzies also chose Stallone and Madonna as worst actor and actress of the 20th century.

 

Other Razzie 2002 ``winners'' chosen by about 500 members of the Golden Raspberry Foundation:

 

Worst actor: Roberto Benigni, ``Pinocchio.''

 

Worst supporting actor: Hayden Christensen, ``Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones.''

 

Worst screenplay: George Lucas and Jonathan Hales, ``Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones.''

 

Worst original song: ``I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman,'' ``Crossroads.''

 

Most flatulent teen-targeted movie: ``Jackass: The Movie.''

 

Ritchie and Madonna were the first husband-wife Razzie recipients since John and Bo Derek, who were named worst director and actress for 1984's ``Bolero'' and 1990's ``Ghosts Can't Do It.''

 

Razzies founder Wilson said he always votes last and cast the ballot that tied Madonna and Spears for worst actress, though he would not say which he voted for.

 

``They are equally wretched,'' Wilson said. ``They admire each other, and they can have each other.''

Madonna Film Sweeps RAZZIE Awards

 

By Christopher Michaud

 

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Maybe they should just rename these awards "the Madonnas."

 

Madonna and director-husband Guy Ritchie "Swept Away" the competition with their widely reviled box office bomb of the same name at the 23rd annual Razzie awards on Saturday which "honor" the worst of the worst in Hollywood.

 

The Razzies are traditionally awarded a day before the Oscars, Hollywood's highest honors which are set for Sunday.

 

"Swept Away," a remake of Italian director Lina Wertmuller's 1974 classic about a bourgeois woman shipwrecked in the Mediterranean with her yacht's communist cook, swept the Razzies with nods for worst film, worst performance by an actress, worst remake, worst screen couple (Madonna and co-star Adriano Giannini) and worst director Ritchie.

 

The first cinematic collaboration between the aging pop star and the British director also suffered the ignominious distinction of being the Razzie's lowest-grossing worst film ever, having "earned" a whopping $598,645 in box office receipts, the Razzies award givers said.

 

Actually Madonna, who can now boast a collection of five worst actress Razzies in her curio cabinet -- not to mention having been crowned worst actress of the century -- had to share the honor this year with fellow pop star Britney Spears.

 

For her screen debut Spears chose "Crossroads," in which as critics noted she dug deep into her creative vault to transform every fiber of her being into her character of ... an aspiring pop star.

 

"Crossroads" opens with Spears' character dancing in her underwear to Madonna's "Open Your Heart to Me." So now they have another bond.

 

WORST ORIGINAL SONG

 

Spears also grabbed the worst original song honors for "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman" from the film.

 

"Swept Away"'s five "wins" tied the mark for most Razzies set by such unforgettable movie train wrecks as "Mommie Dearest," "The Post Man," "Wild Wild West" and "Freddy Got Fingered."

 

Seemingly on a roll, Razzie voters also saw fit to bestow its worst supporting actress award on Madonna for her fleeting cameo in the James Bond flick "Die Another Day."

 

The Razzies, formally administered by the non-profit Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, did not reserve its brickbats for pop stars who think they're actresses, of course.

 

Italian actor/director and past Oscar winner Roberto Benigni ("Life is Beautiful") apparently gave new meaning to the term wooden acting with his poorly dubbed folly "Pinocchio," which apparently even children didn't want to see during its abortive Christmas release.

 

Even Hollywood superpower George Lucas and his "Star Wars" cash cow franchise did not escape unscathed. His "disappointing fifth entry from a galaxy far, far too long," as the Razzie folks put it, "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones," snagged Razzies for Hayden Christensen as worst supporting actor and worst screenplay for Lucas himself.

 

Winners were determined by ballots mailed to 563 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 39 U.S. states and a dozen other countries.

 

The award itself is a handcrafted, golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled reel of Super 8 film. Spray-painted gold, it is said to have an estimated street value of $4.89.

 

But that, of course, doesn't account for eBay.

The 23rd Annual

RAZZIE® AWARDS

Dis-Honoring Worst Achievements in Film for 2002

 

CONTACT: HeadBerry@razzies.com

  

For Immediate Release

It’s Madonna! It’s Britney! It’s -- BOTH??

Pop Divas TIE at 23rd RAZZIE Awards

 

   RAZZIE voters apparently found it impossible to decide if Britney Spears in her screen debut CROSSROADS or Madonna in the screen debacle SWEPT AWAY was worse – So the final results came up a TIE for Worst Actress in The 23rd Annual Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE) Awards, diss-honoring 2002’s Worst Achievements in Film. “Winners” (if that’s the right term here!) were announced in ultra-low-budget ceremonies at the Four-Points by Sheraton Hotel in Santa Monica, held at 11am/PST Saturday, March 22. To point up their being a counterpoint to The Oscars, The RAZZIES are traditionally presented 24 hours BEFORE That Other Award Show (a.k.a. “The Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men”).

 

   The 2003 RAZZIE ceremony commenced with “Velma” Kelie McIver performing the glitzy Opening Number “All That RAZZ!” (a parody of guess-what-tune from Oscar Best Picture nominee CHICAGO) then ripped-and-tore its way through 11 categories in about an hour. Besides the tie for Worst Actress, many of this year’s other RAZZIE races were also close…

 

   But in the end, the film that swept was the first joint effort from Mr. and Mrs. Madonna, SWEPT AWAY. The Immaterial Mom’s Box Office Blow-Fest became the first film ever to “win” BOTH the Worst Picture and Worst Remake statuettes, as well as being the lowest-grossing Worst Picture in RAZZIE history with a tiny $598,645 in ticket sales. SWEPT also copped spray-painted gold for Worst Screen Couple (Madonna and co-star Adriano Giannini) and Worst Director, “Mr. Madonna” (a.k.a. Guy Ritchie). It’s five “wins” tie SWEPT AWAY with MOMMIE DEAREST, THE POST MAN, WILD WILD WEST and FREDDY GOT FINGERED in the RAZZIE All-Time Worst derby. Worst Actress “co-winner” and Madonna-Wannabe Britney’s less-than-auspicious “acting” debut CROSSROADS was the runner-up. It’s Worst “Original” Song “win” for Spears’ whiney new anthem, “I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” brought that film’s RAZZIE total to 2. Former Best Actor Oscar winner Roberto Benigni, in a wooden-headed (and horribly-dubbed) remake of PINOCCHIO, barely nosed out Steven Seagal as 2002’s Worst Actor. And George Lucas’ disappointing 5th entry from a galaxy far, far too long, STAR WARS EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES crashed to Earth with both Worst Supporting Actor (Hayden Christensen) and Worst Screenplay RAZZIES. Lucas himself and co-conspirator Jonathan Hales shared the Screenplay diss-honor. A complete list of 23rd Annual RAZZIE® “winners” is included with this press release.

 

   “Winners” were determined by mailing ballots to 563 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 39 U.S. states and a dozen foreign countries. The award itself is a handcrafted golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled reel of Super 8 film, spray-painted gold. It has an estimated street value of $4.89.  The RAZZIES were created in 1980 by John Wilson, a life-long cynic and Cine-Maniac as well as the author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES.

In his 50 years on Planet Hollywood, John Wilson has seen more than 4000 movies, many of them in his capacity as the Founder and Head RAZZberry of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation and creator of The RAZZIE Awards.

Wilson is also the author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES, a collection of 100 of cinema's silliest cliches, published by General Publishing Group in 1995. He has just completed the manuscript for the up-coming Warner Book THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE MOVIE GUIDE, Enjoying The Best of Hollywood's Worst, which lists 100 of the funniest, most entertainingly awful movies ever made, and is scheduled for publication in January, 2005 to tie in with The Gala 25th Annual RAZZIE Award nominations.

A graduate of UCLA's prestigious Movie/Television Studies Program, Wilson's background includes over 25 years as a producer, copywriter and creative consultant for many of Hollywood’s biggest TV and movie companies.  In 1990 he won the Hollywood Reporter's Key Art Award for comedy trailers.  He has created hundreds of major movie campaigns, including those for the first three STAR WARS films, three of the four SUPERMAN movies, such classic Disney reissues as PINOCCHIO, LADY AND THE TRAMP and the animated versions of both THE JUNGLE BOOK and 101 DALMATIANS and, in a bit of RAZZIE serendipity, the trailer and TV spots for Pia Zadora in Harold Robbins’ THE LONELY LADY. He has also worked on projects for PBS, The Playboy Channel, CBS-TV's Fall Preview print ads, a three-minute retrospective look at MGM/UA's renowned video library and The Electronic Press Kit for The 67th Annual Academy Awards.

For Immediate Release

 

RAZZIE Voters ‘SWEPT AWAY’

by Madonna, Murphy, Britney, Benigni – And ‘STAR WARS’

 

   Big budget box office bombs, big name embarrassments and one of 2002’s biggest box office hits are featured among nominations for The 23rd Annual Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE) Awards, dis-honoring the year’s Worst Achievements in Film. “Winners” (if that’s the right term here!) will be announced in ultra-low-budget ceremonies scheduled for 11am/PST Saturday, March 22 at the Four-Points Sheraton Hotel in Santa Monica, the now traditional 24 hours BEFORE That Other Award Show, a.k.a. “The Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men”…

   Competing as 2002’s Worst Picture are Eddie Murphy’s THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH (which cost over $85 million and grossed under $5 million), the first joint effort from Mr. and Mrs. Madonna SWEPT AWAY, Madonna- Wannabe Britney Spears’ less-than-auspicious screen debut CROSSROADS, former Oscar® winner Roberto Benigni’s wooden-headed (and horribly-dubbed) remake of PINOCCHIO, and George Lucas’ disappointing 5th entry from a galaxy far, far too long, STAR WARS EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES. Joining Murphy and Benigni in Worst Actor are Adriano Giannini for SWEPT AWAY, Steven Seagal in HALF PAST DEAD and 1999 Worst Actor “Winner” Adam Sandler with two titles, ADAM SANDLER’S 8 CRAZY NIGHTS and his wretched remake of MR. DEEDS. Alongside Britney and Madonna vying for Worst Actress will be former Oscar® darlings Angelina Jolie (LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT) and Winona Ryder (MR. DEEDS) as well as RAZZIE Repeat Offender Jennifer Lopez (ENOUGH and MAID IN MANHATTAN). Lopez was also a Worst Actress nominee with 2 titles last year, but lost out to Mariah Carey in GLITTER. Madonna, with 4 previous Worst Actress “wins” and 4 nominations this year alone, plus a Worst Actress of the Century award, is now the undisputed Female RAZZIE Champion. Other familiar names listed among contenders for Tinsel Town’s Tackiest Trophy include former Female RAZZIE Champion Bo Derek (MASTER OF DISGUISE) 2001’s biggest RAZZIE “winner” Tom Green (STEALING HARVARD) and Oscar® winners Robin Williams (DEATH TO SMOOCHY) and Christopher Walken (THE COUNTRY BEARS). A complete list of nominations is included with this press release.

   The 2003 RAZZIE ceremony will commence with a glitzy Opening Number (“All That RAZZ!” a parody of guess-what-tune from likely Oscar® contender CHICAGO) and then rip-and-tear its way through some 11 categories in under an hour. Among this year’s categories are such long-term RAZZIE traditions as Worst Screen Couple and Worst Remake or Sequel and a brand new one, Most Flatulent Teen-Targeted Movie, designed to dis-honor the often moronic movies Hollywood is forever aiming at the acne-and-braces set. Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 537 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 38 U.S. states and a dozen foreign countries. The award itself is a handcrafted golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled reel of Super 8 film, spray-painted gold. It has an estimated street value of $4.89.

  The RAZZIES were created in 1980 by John Wilson, a life-long cynic and Cine-Maniac as well as the author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES.

7pm Saturday, Feb. 1st @ Razzie HQ

Get ‘SWEPT AWAY’ at RAZZIE Prevue Nite XXII

 

Will Madonna’s Cinematic Shipwreck Be Our Main Feature?

Will Roberto Benigni Climb Atop the Seats??

Will EVERY Member in Attendance Win a Door Prize???

To Find Out, Plan to Attend!

 

  The Main Feature we figure Every RAZZIE Member hopes we’ll have for Prevue Nite isn’t due to be released on DVD until February 11 (The day AFTER this year’s nominations are announced -- Talk about Terrible Timing!). But we’ve seen SWEPT AWAY and the 97% of American film critics who royally ripped this wretched Madonna remake of the 1974 Lina Wertmuller classic aren’t wrong. It looks like The Immaterial Gal may finally get herself a Worst Picture Trophy to go with the four Worst Actress RAZZIES she’s already “won,” so we’ve called in Every Favor We’ve Ever Been Owed in Tinseltown, to get our hands on an Advance Screener of this Atrocious Stinker for Prevue Nite.  And since we ARE Persona Non RAZZa in Hollywood, MAYBE we’ll actually have a DVD of SWEPT AWAY by 7pm Saturday, February 1st at RAZZIE HQ.

   If we DON’T get our hands on SWEPT AWAY, our Back-Up is Madonna’s hilariously pretentious appearance on “Larry King Live” promoting Her Biggest Megaton B.O. Bomb Ever (the night before it opened to a whopping $367 per theatre).  See Larry King himself Go All Gushy over what a “wonderful” film our Worst Actress of the 20th Century “winner”  and her Awl-Time Awful Auteur of a Husband made (Maybe King attended the screening without his glasses or hearing aid?). See The Doyen of the Drowned World Tour explain “why” she and husband Guy (Can Any Marriage Survive This Debacle ?) Ritchie wanted to do this remake in the first place. And see why ‘SWEPT AWAY’ was so crucified by critics that Madonna’s agent bemoaned the reviews as “a public hanging.”

  Also on the bill for Prevue Nite: Worst Actor shoo-in  Eddie Murphy in at least ONE of his Triumvirate of Terrible Films from 2002: The un-funny SHOWTIME, the un-necessary remake of I SPY and/or the in-defensible $85 million bomb THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH (which grossed Less Than $5 million -- OUCH!); Britney Spears (whose Worst Actress Front-Runner status Madonna seems to have usurped) in the Treacly Teen Road(kill) Drama CROSSROADS; Worst Actor, Worst Actress and Worst Screen Couple contenders Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu in the Terribly Titled BALLISTIC: ECKS vs. SEVER; SCOOBY DOO, MR. DEEDS, JASON X --And Lots MORE...and LOTS Worse!

  As an Added Shill to Getcha There, we’ve got Our Best Ever DOOR PRIZES, including as Grand Prize a 3' Bouquet Made Entirely of Movie Treats.

EDITORIAL:

Is 2002's Worst Picture ‘PINOCCHIO’ By a Nose??

 

  Sometimes it takes a while for our Worst New Star Contenders to achieve The Full Flower of Their Awfulness: In the case of Roberto Benigni, 1993 Worst New Star nominee for his English language debut in SON OF THE PINK PANTHER, it took ten years.

  In that decade, Italy’s Answer to Jerry Lewis actually won an Academy Award as Best Actor for the emotionally overwhelming (and critically over-rated) LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL. He also saw that film go on to gross nearly $200 million worldwide. As a result, La Bozo d’Talia found himself in that rare place only hit-makers find themselves: He was given the chance to make His Dream Project, with The Biggest Budget in Italian Film History.

  And what did The Man Who Mounted the Seats at the 1999 Academy Awards make with the $45 million?? The film Benigni was originally to have done under the direction of Italy’s Master Movie Maker Federico Fellini: An Italian version of that most famous of Italian folk tales, PINOCCHIO. But Fellini bought the olive farm before the project was realized, and Benigni went ahead without him. And Fellini, even with CASANOVA, never got the kind of reviews the hideously dubbed American release of Benigni’s PINOCCHIO has gotten. “A movie so bad,” declared The New York Times, “that it instantly enters the pantheon of wreckage that includes BATTLEFIELD EARTH and SHOW-GIRLS!” “Wooden-headed, self-serving and lifeless!” chimed The L.A. Times. “There’s something off-putting about a 50-year-old man cavorting around in a clown suit impersonating a capricious brat,” avowed VARIETY. And People On-Line even went so far as to open their piece with: “RAZZIE Board, are you listening? Just when it seemed as though SWEPT AWAY and PLUTO NASH had a lock on next Spring’s Golden Raspberry Awards, along comes the Christmas turkey PINOCCHIO.”

  So is the film as bad as 100%(!) of the critics culled on RottenTomatoes.com say it is? If it hasn’t been pulled already by your local Theatre Manager as a Public Service, you can still see for yourself. Or you can just take OUR word for it -- Benigni’s PINOCCHIO deserves to be our first ever foreign-made Worst Picture nominee...

 

 

The Worst Kind of

GOSSIP!

 

LINA LETS MADONNA HAVE IT! However nasty American reviews of SWEPT AWAY may have been, perhaps the most hurtful comment of all came from the director of the 1974 original version, Lina Wertmuller. Quoted in The Washington Post, La Lina declared: "Why? Why? I don't understand why the picture is so awful. Why did Madonna and her husband let it out? It's very crazy. They saw the picture. So why open like that? This is terrible!"

 

“MOTHER OF GOD, IS THIS THE END OF LITTLE ROCKY?”  It hadda happen sooner or later: Awl-Time RAZZIE Cham-Peen Sylvester Stallone has finally made a movie So Awful It Went Direct-to-Video. Your local Blockbuster should have at least ONE rental copy of the just released D-TOX. Formerly titled ICU, EYE SEE YOU and IM AUGE DER ANGST in Germany (one of the few places it was theatrically released) it was directed by Jim Gillespie, whose previous claim-to-fame was I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, and co-stars 1981 Worst Actor nominee Kris Kristofferson. Just so you don’t go gettin’ too sorry for Duh Sly Guy, it’s also one of those three films he made for Universal...For $20 million apiece!

 

“MOTHER OF GOD, IS THIS THE END OF LITTLE RAZZIE??” Our one-year development deal with Nash Entertainment, to try and finally get The RAZZIES broadcast, expired last November. During that year, we had what seemed like good pitch meetings with Comedy Central and AMC, and a Very Weird Meeting at E! TV (they totally didn’t get it -- And kept asking where Joan Rivers would be put on the Red Carpet for Stars’ Arrivals!). But it turns out the TV industry is just as afraid of us as the movie industry is -- Not one network followed up without expressing fear of “pissing off” their Major Movie Studio sponsors.

Hey, we told you we’re Persona Non-RAZZa in Hollywood! Bottom Line: We’re now seeking another backer...

RAZZIES®

Dis-Honoring Worst Achievements in Film for 1999, The 1990’s and The 20th Century

‘WILD WILD WEST’ STAR ATTENDS AS

RAZZIES® ANNOUNCE WORST IN FILM ‘WINNERS’

FOR 1999, THE 90’s – AND THE CENTURY!

 

  Celebrating two decades as Tinseltown’s Tackiest Anti-Awards Show, The Golden Raspberry Award Foun-dation chose The Traditional Day BEFORE That Other Award Show to unveil “winners” of its 20th Annual RAZZIE® Awards, Dis-Honoring Worst Achievements in Film. For 1999, The 1990’s and The 20th Century.

 

  To the surprise of no one unfortunate enough to have seen it, the Most-RAZZed movie of 1999 turned out to be WILD WILD WEST. A wretched remake of the mid-60’s TV hit as a behemothly over-budget, special-effects-laden box office bomb, WEST “won” five RAZZIES, including not only Worst Picture of The Year but also Worst Director (“Berry” Sonnenfeld), Worst Screenplay, Worst Song (for its rap-style title tune) and Worst Screen Couple for co-stars Kevin Kline and Will Smith, who Roger Ebert said had “so little screen chemistry they seem to be acting in front of rear screen projections of each other!” Three of WEST’s Dis-Honors were accepted by the star of the original TV series, Robert Conrad. Other 1999 RAZZIES went to: Adam Sandler, Worst Actor as an amazingly idiotic adoptive father in BIG DADDY; Heather Donahue, Worst Actress, playing the increasingly irksome director of a doomed documentary in BLAIR WITCH PROJECT; Computer-created creature and Internet Whipping Boy Jar-Jar Binks of STAR WARS: EPISODE I as Worst Supporting Actor; And tank-topped “nuclear physicist” Denise Richards of THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH, Worst Supporting Actress. Special RAZZIES were also awarded to Pauly Shore as The Worst New Star of The 1990’s, SHOWGIRLS as the decade’s Worst Picture and Perpetual RAZZIE Targets Sylvester Stallone and Madonna as Worst Actor and Actress of The ENTIRE 20th Century. .

 

  RAZZIE nominations and “winners” were determined by mailing ballots to more than 465 G.R.A.F. members (film fans, film journalists and film professionals) in 34 US states and eight foreign countries.  The RAZZIES were founded in 1980 by John Wilson, a UCLA Film School graduate and author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES. The actual RAZZIE Award, a gold-spray-painted plastic raspberry atop a mangled Super 8 film reel, now has an inflation-adjusted estimated street value of about $4.27.

 

  For more information on The GRAF, their awards and/or their history, please visit the web RAZZIE website, one of the more heavily trafficked humorous destinations in cyberspace. Recently up-dated and revised, it is now operated by Tianna Thomas of Hitsites, Inc. To arrange an interview with Wilson, or get additional information Straight from The Head RAZZberry, please contact the E-mail address atop this release.

Tom Green's 'FREDDY' Gets Fingered
5 Times at 22nd Annual RAZZIE Awards



While the Hoity-Toity of Hollywood are holding their breath awaiting next Sunday's 74th Annual Academy Awards, the Hoi Polloi of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation have already picked Tinsel Town's Top Turkeys in The 22nd Annual RAZZIE Awards. And the big "Winner" (If That's The Right Word) is MTV Host Tom Green and his widely reviled "shock comedy" FREDDY GOT FINGERED. The film, slammed by CNN as "the worst movie ever released by a major studio in Hollywood history," won a total of 5 gold-spray-painted $4.79 trophies, including Worst Picture. Four Awards went to Green himself, expected to be the first onscreen talent in The Annual Derby of Dis-Honor's 22 year history to attend and accept his Awards in person. Green was cited as 2001's Worst Actor, Worst Director, co-author (with Derek Harvie) of the year's Worst Screenplay and as Worst Screen Couple (Green and "Any Animal He Abuses"). "Winners" were announced the now-traditional 24 hours Before That OTHER Award Show, in ceremonies at The Abracadabra Theatre at MAGICOPOLIS, 1418 Fourth Street in Santa Monica. Complete with a Tacky Opening Number ("Hooray for What's No Good!") Tuxedoed Presenters, Envelopes and Clips of nominated films The RAZZIES are a lighthearted parody of Show Biz Award Shows in General (and The Oscars in particular).
The Foundation Members' choice for Worst Actress likely surprised no one: Mariah Carey in her screen debut, the stillborn/STAR IS BORN knockoff, GLITTER. Carey copped a whopping 60% of all votes cast in a field of five nominees. The balance of the RAZZIES went to one of 2001's Biggest Movie Disappointments, the monkey-brained Tim Burton version of PLANET OF THE APES. The film not only took Worst Remake or Sequel, it also won BOTH Supporting Awards: Original APES star Charlton Heston (also named for his work in CATS & DOGS and TOWN AND COUNTRY) was Worst Supporting Actor and former swimsuit model Estella Warren swam her way to Worst Supporting Actress as both The Human Love Interest in APES and the Character Equivalent of a Hood Ornament in Sylvester Stallone's formulaic Formula One drama DRIVEN. A complete list of "Winners" is attached.

Results were determined by sending ballots to more than 520 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 38 U.S. states and 10 foreign countries. The Foundation currently has a development deal with Nash Entertainment, which is now pitching next year's 23rd Annual RAZZIES for possible broadcast.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Tom Green Agrees to Get 'FINGERED' In Person at This Saturday’s 22nd Annual RAZZIE Awards

 While the Hoity-Toity of Hollywood are holding their breath awaiting this Sunday’s 74th Annual Academy Awards, the Hoi Polloi of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation have been holding their noses, picking Tinsel Town’s Top Turkeys for The 22nd Annual RAZZIE Awards. “Winners” of this Annual Derby of Dis-Honor will be announced this Saturday, March 23 at 11:30am/PST in ceremonies at The Abracadabra Theatre at MAGICOPOLIS, 1418 Fourth Street in Santa Monica. Complete with a Tacky Opening Number (“Hooray for What’s No Good!”) Tuxedoed Presenters, Envelopes, Clips of nominated films-- and the likelihood that at least one potential “Winner” WILL attend -- The RAZZIES are a light-hearted parody of Show Biz Awards in General (and The Oscars in particular).

 The likely attendee is the star, co-author and director of this year’s Most-Nominated RAZZIE title, FREDDY GOT FINGERED, Tom Green. His film was slammed by CNN as “the worst movie ever released by a major studio in Hollywood history.” Just prior to press time, Green announced that if he or his film won any statuettes, he would be the first on-screen talent in RAZZIE history ever to show up at the ceremonies and accept in person. As Worst Picture, FREDDY’s co-nominees include: The latest Sylvester Stallone vehicle to crash-and-burn at the Box Office, DRIVEN; Mariah Carey’s stillborn STAR IS BORN knock-off GLITTER; Disney’s dizzyingly expensive, numbingly overlong WWII epic PEARL HARBOR; And Kevin Costner in a blood-spattered tale of Elvis impersonators robbing a Vegas casino, 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND. Green’s four nominations for FREDDY (Worst Actor, Worst Screenplay, Worst Director and Worst Screen Couple with “Any Animal He Abuses”) tie the all-time record. But All-Time RAZZIE Cham-Peen Stallone ALSO has four nominations this year (Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Screen Couple with Burt Reynolds and Worst Picture as one of the producers of DRIVEN) and now has a Career Total of 29 Nominations and 9 “Wins” in 22 years.

  Others vying for Hollywood’s Most Heinous Hunk o’ Gold include: Ben Affleck (PEARL HARBOR) three-time past “Winner” Costner (GRACELAND) Keanu Reeves (HARDBALL and SWEET NOVEMBER) and last year’s Big “Winner” John Travolta (DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE and SWORDFISH) alongside Green for Worst Actor. Penelope Cruz (BLOW, CAPTAIN CORELLI’S MANDOLIN and VANILLA SKY) Angelina Jolie (LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER and ORIGINAL SIN) Jennifer Lopez (ANGEL EYES and THE WEDDING PLANNER) and Charlize Theron (SWEET NOVEMBER) are contending with Mariah the Pariah for Worst Actress. A complete list of nominees in all nine RAZZIE Categories is included with this release.

  “Winners” are determined by sending ballots to more than 520 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 38 U.S. states and 10 foreign countries. The Foundation currently has a development deal with Nash Entertainment, which is now pitching next year’s 23rd Annual RAZZIES for possible broadcast.

The San Diego Union-Tribune / Friday, February 15, 2002 HOLLYWOOD VINE NORMA MEYER RUEFUL RAZZ-BERRIES: JUST A NIGHT OF FUN...UNLESS YOU WIN February 15, 2002/ARTESIA – It's hard to stomach food and watch rot, but the RAZZIE comrades snack on raspberry yogurt bars, raspberry spritzer cookies and chocolate raspberry decaf as they give the raspberry to movies in the Head RAZZberry's modest living room. This is headquarters of the Anti-Oscars. And these are the berry people who mega-monied, swell-headed Hollywood would like to turn into pulp. It's the ever-vicious preview night, just hours before nominating ballots are due for the world-renowned 22nd annual Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE) Awards. On the eve of the Academy Awards, Tinseltown's tackiest trophy – a $4.29 gold, spray-painted plastic raspberry atop a mangled, Super-8 film reel on a Lipton raspberry iced-tea jar lid – will "dis-honor" pics and performances that reek, and which any dolt who saw them wonders how they got made. "Yo!" the 20 gathered RAZZIE critics yell, mocking the cavemanlike all-time RAZZIE champ, Sylvester Stallone. They snipe at snippets of Worst Picture candidate "Driven," which Head RAZZberry John Wilson, clad in gold T-shirt and raspberry-colored sweat pants, refers to as "Drivel." Meanwhile, Wilson's 6-year-old son offers raffle tickets for door prizes that include raspberry jam. It's mortifying enough that the $150 million "Pearl Harbor" (six noms here, including Worst Picture and Worst Actor hopeful Ben Affleck) and ingenue Penelope Cruz (Worst Actress contender for "Blow," "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" and "Vanilla Sky") are clobbered, but there's insult added to injury. The 500-member voting RAZZIE foundation (which is 400 more bodies than the Golden Globes judging panel) is open to anyone paying $25 dues, and it boasts lots of show-biz folks, including screenwriters, publicists, art directors and actors. Wilson, 47, writes and produces trailers and on-air promos for films. FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR Says a Hollywood set electrician: "You can smell it when you work on it." He means the stinkaroos. The potential "losers" for Worst Picture – announced this week the traditional 24-hour damper before the ego-tripping Oscar nods – are: "Driven" ("Stallone's latest vehicle to run out of gas at the box office," according to Wilson), "Freddy Got Fingered" ("execrable, excrement-encrusted 'comedy' from idiot non-savant Tom Green"), "Glitter" ("Mariah Carey in laughably lip-sunk screen debut"), "Pearl Harbor" ("the year's biggest-grossing, longest ... box-office bomb"), and "3,000 Miles to Graceland" ("repeat offender Kevin Costner in a tale of gun-toting, casino-robbing Elvis impersonators"). "Sorry, Mr. Stallone is not going to comment on the awards, and he will not be attending the event," his rep icily tells a reporter. This is her return phone call because her first reaction – when told the fab news that "Driven" nabbed seven noms, including Sly's four for Picture (including Worst Producer), Supporting Actor, Screenplay and Screen Couple with Burt Reynolds – was stone, cold silence. "I'm not going to comment on it," snaps a mouthpiece for Worst Actress shoo-in Carey. Her "Glitter" cleavage is up for Worst Screen Couple. At least the "idiot non-savant" has one funny bone. "I am very proud and honored to be nominated for these awards," gushes Green, whose "Freddy" fiasco led with eight noms, including Worst Actor. "I've never won an award before. I hope there is an actual trophy because I've already dusted off my mantel. I guess dreams can come true." Wilson, who founded the RAZZIES during a yawner Oscarcast with friends, only has one trophy on hand since the turkeys don't show. The only winner to ever appear – and who took home the prototype Golden Raspberry after a standing ovation – was a good-natured Paul Verhoeven, Worst Director for 1995's "Showgirls." Robert Conrad, star of the 1960s TV series "The Wild Wild West," so loathed the 1999 movie version of the same name with Will Smith that he attended so he could publicly rip the all-around RAZZIE fav. Occasionally, nominees get confused. Two bodybuilding brothers who starred in "The Barbarians" were overhead shouting in the lobby of a Hollywood hotel before the 1988 ceremony: "What? This means we suck?" They didn't win, but stormed the stage anyway to give an acceptance speech. "The audience threw popcorn," Wilson recalls. Green won't say if he'll show for the cream-of-the-crud awards March 23 at a Santa Monica theater. And fat chance that other don't-wannabes for Worst Actor – Affleck, Costner, Keanu Reeves ("Hardball," "Sweet November") and John Travolta ("Domestic Disturbance," "Swordfish") – or Worst Actress – Carey, Cruz, Angelina Jolie ("Lara Croft: Tomb Raider," "Original Sin"), Jennifer Lopez ("Angel Eyes," "The Wedding Planner") and Charlize Theron ("Sweet November") – will say thanks, I tanked. As usual, though, there'll be clips of clunkers and an Oscar-like musical number, this year to the tune "Hooray for Hollywood." Only it'll be "Hooray for What's No Good." "The RAZZIES aren't meant as a slap in the face," a chuckling Wilson says. "It's a banana peel on the floor." ©2002, Union-Tribune Publishing Company

2001's Berry Biggest B.O. Bombs ‘FINGERED’ in

Tinsel Town’s Top Turkey Trot: The 22nd RAZZIES

Who will win this year’s Worst Picture race? Sylvester Stallone’s latest vehicle to run out of gas at the box office, DRIVEN (a.k.a. DRIVEL)? The execrable, excrement-encrusted “comedy” from Idiot NON-Savant Tom Green, FREDDY GOT FINGERED? Mariah Carey in a screen debut that lip-sank first in theatres and now on video, GLITTER? The year’s biggest-grossing, longest  (and most butt-numbing) box office bomb, PEARL HARBOR? Or RAZZIE Repeat Offender Kevin Costner in a tale of gun-toting, casino robbing Elvis impersonators, 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND? This year’s race for the Spray-Painted RAZZIE Gold was wide open, as Nominations for Tinsel Town’s Tackiest Trophies were unveiled the now-traditional 24 hours BEFORE Nominations for That OTHER Award. “Winners” of The 22nd Annual RAZZIE Awards will be announced in ceremonies set for 11:30am, Saturday, March 23 at The Abracadabra Theatre at 1418 Fourth Street in Santa Monica, adjacent to that same day’s 17th Annual Independent Spirit Awards.

  In addition to their Worst Picture nominations, DRIVEN and FREDDY also got multiple nods for their two knuckle-headed “stars,” both of whom have a record-tying FOUR nominations apiece: Green was FINGERED for Worst Actor, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay (with Derek Harvie) and for Worst Screen Couple as “Tom Green and Any Animal He Abuses.” Stallone, the all-time RAZZIE Champion who won a Worst Actor of The Century trophy in 2000, finds himself nominated in 2001 for Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen “Couple” (with co-star and co-nominee Burt Reynolds) and for Worst Picture as one of the producers of DRIVEN. This brings The Less-Than-Sly-Guy’s career RAZZIE total to 29 nominations in 22 years. He has “won” 9 times.

  Others vying for Tinsel Town’s Top Turkey Trophy include: Ben Affleck (PEARL HARBOR) three-time “winner” Costner (GRACELAND) Keanu Reeves (HARDBALL and SWEET NOVEMBER) and last year’s “winner” John Travolta (DOMESTIC DISTURBANCE and SWORDFISH) alongside Green in Worst Actor. Penelope Cruz (BLOW, CAPTAIN CORELLI’S MANDOLIN and VANILLA SKY) Angelina Jolie (LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER and ORIGINAL SIN) Jennifer Lopez (ANGEL EYES and THE WEDDING PLANNER) and Charlize Theron (SWEET NOVEMBER) are contending with Carey for Worst Actress -- But with votes on 93.3% of all Nominating Ballots, it looks like Mariah’s the True Pariah of the Pack. A complete list of nominees in all nine RAZZIE Categories is included with this release.

  Nominees were determined by sending ballots to more than 500 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 39 U.S. states and 10 foreign countries. The Foundation recently entered into a development deal with Nash Entertainment to produce a televised award show for next year's 23rd Annual RAZZIES and they are currently seeking a broadcast partner. Created in 1980 by John Wilson, author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES, The RAZZIES are a parody of Award Shows in general and the Academy Awards in particular. The award itself, designed by Wilson, is a plastic, golf-ball sized raspberry atop a mangled Super-8 film reel, mounted on a base made from the lid of a Lipton Raspberry Iced Tea jar and spray-painted gold -- It has a current estimated Street Value of about $4.29.

PREVUE NITE 2002 Set to ‘GLITTER’

with God-Awful ‘FREDDY’ ‘PEARL’

Mariah, and Other Screen Pariahs

See Carey’s Laughably Lip-Sunk Screen Debut

Along with Lotsa Snips, Clips and Critical Rips

When it opened to Almost No Business on September 21, 2001, we thought: “Well, it IS the first movie to come out after Sept. 11.” When it won the NBC/TODAY SHOW poll as 2001's Biggest Showbiz Blunder (With 50% of the vote!) we thought: “No way 79,500 people even saw it!” When it rang up 56 out of 59 reviews as slams on Our 2nd Favorite Web-Site ROTTEN TOMATOES, we were impressed. When it peeked at #66 on the IMDB’s All Time 100 Worst List, we were intrigued. Then we saw it. Now we’re offering it as The Main Feature at this year’s RAZZIE Preview Nite...

It is, of course, Madonna-Played-at-Alvin-and-The-Chipmunks-Speed Pop Singer Mariah Carey in Her First Feature Film, GLITTER. It’s Listed ALL OVER the enclosed Nominating Ballot, in part because it earned such Critical ACK-o-lades as “the dorkiest movie of the year!” (Internet Site I-FILM); “a dim bulb of a movie” (USA Today); and “We’re talking a lock on the RAZZIES here!” (Greenwich Village Gazette). In its defense, we admit GLITTER is Shorter than PEARL HARBOR (By About a Week!) Less Decrepit than TOWN & COUNTRY (Though Every Bit as Old Hat!) Less Offensive than FREDDY GOT FINGERED (Though Just About as Dumb!) and has More Frequent Laughs than DRIVEN (Though Both are Star-Ego-Driven!). But GLITTER is Ripe for Ripping-Apart by the RAZZIE Members Who Show Up at Prevue Nite: Wall-to-wall with Hokey Movie Cliche’s and Begging-to-Be-Retorted Set-Up Lines (“Have you thought seriously about acting?”) it was whomped-on by Entertainment Weakly as “a smelly STAR IS BORN campfest” and got their “A” Rating as “a cult comedy.” Sounds PERFECT, doesn’t it!?!

And we won’t be ignoring The Other 57 Contenders. In addition to Kitty GLITTER, we’ll also show Embarrassing Moments, Vicious Reviews and World Class Bad Acting from such 2001 Turkeys as: DRIVEN (Written by Stallone and featuring Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Couple hopefuls Sylvester and Burt Reynolds); 2001’s Most Butt-Numbing Three-Way/Three Hour WWII “Romance” PEARL HARBOR (With a Surprise Ending Any 3 Year-Old Could Predict); Repeat Offenders Kevin Costner and Kurt Russell as Casino-Robbing Elvis Impersonators in 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND (with Worst Supporting Actress Shoo-In Courtney Cox as The Woman Who Somehow Out-Foxes Them); Idiot NON-Savant Tom Green in FREDDY GOT FINGERED (So Many Moments to Choose: The Bloody Deer Carcass? The 18" Horse Penis?? The Elephant Ejaculating on Rip Torn???); Plus MONKEYBONE, PLANET OF THE APES and MORE...Some Even WORSE! Of course, we’ll also be offering “Dinner” and “Door Prizes”!

To Attend Prevue Nite Please RSVP to

HeadBerry@razzies.com

And We'll See You (and All The RAZZIE GLITTER-atti) February 2nd!!

 

The WORST Kind of GOSSIP!

THAT’LL PUT HIM AHEAD of MADONNA and KEVIN BY ABOUT TWO-TO-ONE.. If all three Sylvester Stallone films now slated for release in 2002 actually ARE released, Duh Sly Guy’s Career Total for RAZZIE Nomination could reach a staggering 30. Among the titles: EYE SEE YOU (which has been In The Can for many months now) co-starring Fellow Former RAZZIE Nominees Kris Kristofferson (HEAVEN’S GATE) and Tom Berenger (SLIVER) in a tale of murder at a Police Rehab center. DOLAN’S CADILLAC is based on a Stephen King story and co-stars Kevin Bacon. And AVENGING ANGELO finds Our Poster Dude as a Mafia bodyguard out to solve (and avenge?) The Death of a Don, played by The Late Anthony Quinn. If Ol’ Tony gives as a good a performance in this as he did in GHOSTS CAN’T DO IT a decade ago, he could score his second (and first posthumous!) Worst Supporting Actor nod...

MAYBE THEY SHOULD RE-TITLE IT ‘BATTLEFIELD GARTH’?? We were just wondering What Ever Happened to the Highly-Touted Screen Debut of Country Singer Garth Brooks in the guise of Punk Rocker Chris Gaines. THE LAMB was originally announced nearly FOUR YEARS ago, and was to be launched by a TV Special (which aired in 1999) and a Pre-Release Soundtrack Album of “Punk Rock” Songs by Brooks (that either disappeared or was never released). It’s STILL listed as being “In Pre-Production”...

AND YOU THOUGHT 2001 SUCKED!! Looking ahead to Possible Contenders for The 23rd Annual RAZZIES, among the Lip-Smackingly Lousy-Sounding Films set for 2002 release are: 3 time RAZZIE Nominee Catherine Zeta-Jones dancing(!) and singing(!) in the Long-Delayed Screen Version of Kander-and-Ebb’s CHICAGO (Where’s Marni Nixon when you really need her?); MEN IN BLACK 2, re-uniting the RAZZIE “Winning” Star (Will Smith) and Director (Barry Sonenfeld) of 1999's WILD WILD WASTE; A Live-Action Remake of SCOOBY-DOO (Remember THE ADVENTURES of ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE??); Bubble-Headed Bubblegum Rock Star Britney Spears following in Madonna and Mariah Carey’s footsteps with her screen debut CROSSROADS; STAR WARS: EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES (which had BETTER kill off 1999 Worst Supporting Actor Jar-Jar Binks in the fist five minutes!) -- Judging by the Purple Dialogue in its Current Trailer, looks to be a Definite Worst Screenplay Contender; and Paul Schrader (HARDCORE) directing Greg Kinnear as the late HOGAN’S HEROES star and Kinky Bad Boy Bob Crane in AUTO FOCUS (which could do for Motel Lamps what MOMMIE DEAREST did for Wire Hangers).

And You Thought The WORST Was Behind Us!!

Volume XXI/Issue #1             Official Newsletter of The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation Fall 2001

7pm Saturday, Nov. 17th @ Razzie HQ

You’re Invited to Go ‘Beyond’ ‘3000 MILES’
and See The 21st Annual RAZZIES on Video!

‘BATTLEFIELD DEARTH’ Sweeps, Kevin Costner Will Give You The Creeps and ‘BVD’ Features X-Rated Peeps!

What’s even scarier than seeing 157 Osama Bin Ladens Trick-or-Treating on Halloween? How about seeing 3-Time Worst Actor “Winner” Kevin Costner sporting Elvis Sideburns, a 357 Magnum and a Sequined Polyester Jumpsuit in 2001 Worst Picture Front-Runner 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND?

That’s our Main Feature at this Fall’s RAZZIE Member Screening, triple-billed with the video of Our Shortest-Ever Award Ceremony -- The 21st Annual RAZZIES, in which John Travolta’s BATTLEFIELD DEARTH (to the surprise of no one who attended Preview Night last Spring!) swept 7 Categories to tie with SHOWGIRLZ as Our All-Time Worst. And as a Special Bonus we’ll also be showing That Hard-to-Find, X-Rated All-Time RAZZIE Classic, BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. If we haven’t scared you off yet, this event is set for 7pm on Saturday, November 17 at Razzie Headquarters.

A Pared-Down, All-Expenses-Spared Version of Our Annual Tinsel Town Turkey Trot, The 21st RAZZIES feature Veteran Voice-Over Maven Bill Jones as Master of Cere-Moan-ies and a Cast of Less-Than-Half-a-Dozen (Dan Campbell, Chip Dornell, Kelie McIver, Micki Sackler and Head RAZZberry John Wilson) Rip-Roaring Their Way Through 9 Categories of 2000's Worst Achievements in Film in Barely Half-an-Hour....
After a Brief Break for Eats and Door Prizes (including a VHS Tape of The 21st RAZZIES and a Collectible ‘3 Stooges’ Key Chain) we’ll be showing BOTH The Bare-Assed, Bald-Facedly Hilarious BVD and the film Box Office Magazine called “a catastrophic debacle of the highest order!” From the Same Production Company as BATTLEFIELD (and Stallone’s DRIVEN!) 3000 MILES TO GRACELAND features “King” Costner and Previous RAZZIE Nominees Kurt (The Jerk) Russell and Christian (The Smirk) Slater plus Courtney (Whatta Piece of Work) Cox in a Blood-Soaked, Brainless Immorality Tale about a Gang of Elvis Impersonators who rob a Vegas casino. With an attitude toward women and violence that makes Oliver Stone’s NATURAL BORN KILLERS seem like “Little House on The Prairie,” GRACELAND was called “JAILHOUSE CROCK” by The Philadelphia Inquirer and USA Today said it, “Nearly matches the Lisa-Marie/Michael Jackson marriage for weirdness!” As for BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, It’s EVERY-THING You’ve Always Heard It Is -- AND MORE!

To Attend This Titillating Triple Feature, Please RSVP to HeadBerry@razzies.com
And We’ll See You (In Sideburns & Sequins?) November 17th!

The WORST Kind of GOSSIP!

SO, IS GOING ‘MAIN STREAM’ BERRY GOOD...OR BERRY BAD? Since last Spring’s 21st Annual Awards, The RAZZIES have been the subject of several Hi-Profile, Main Stream References. The week after That Other Awards, AOL used our nominees to poll more than 271,000 people for Worst Picture. The “winner”? BATTLEFIELD DEARTH (of course!). Then, in their review of Duh Sly-Ster’s DRIVEN, USA Today declared: “With so much rich competition already, it's tough to handicap which release will win the Razzie award for Worst Movie of 2001...but Driven is certainly a contender.”

IS THAT A WIRE HANGER IN YER POCKET, OR ARE YA JUST GLADTA SEE ME? Filming is completed in Ohio on THE CALLING, about real-life 1960's Faith-Healer-cum-Televangelist Leroy Jenkins. Why do we care? Jenkins’ devotees included Elvis Presley, Liberace and Mae West. And West will be played by...MOMMIE DEAREST Herself, Faye Dunaway!

AH-NOLD’S CHANCES FER HIZ 8th WORST ACTOR NOMINASHIN GIT BLOWED UP REAL GOOD... As a result of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Tinsel Town is putting off release of several big budget action-oriented titles. Films now on Perma-Hold include Ah-nold Schwarzenegger’s latest, in which he avenges the death of his family from... a terrorist attack on a skyscraper! Too bad, since even in As Big a Year for Bad Movies as 2001, COLLATERAL DAMAGE sounds like it Coulda Been a Contenduh...

THINK OF THESE TIMES AS ‘JERRY’S SKIDS’ If you follow the hate-mongering rhetoric of Televangelist Jerry Falwell, blame for the recent terrorist bombings belongs on the shoulders of “feminists, lesbians, gays” (and anyone else not following his strict “Christian” tenets). You may also recall a few years ago, Falwell claimed that Purple, Purse-Toting Tele-Tubby Tinky-Winky was recruiting kids to “go gay.” Following Fallwell’s Form of “Logic” the target of American bombings should have been...Tele-Tubby Island! (Just think - Dipsy, La-La, Po and All Those Itty-Bitty Bunnies coulda been...Collateral Damage!)

BATTLEFIELD DEARTH (with 7 Awards, Tied with SHOWGIRLZ)


 

 

It's Official: ‘BATTLEFIELD EARTH’ Is Tied With
‘SHOWGIRLS’ as RAZZIES’ All-Time WORST!

 When a movie sweeps Tinsel Town’s Tackiest Trophy Derby, should it be considered a “Winning” Streak or a LOSING Streak? That’s just one of the questions the makers of the Big Budget Sci Fi Fiasco BATTLEFIELD EARTH will be asking themselves once they hear what “Won” at The 21st Annual Golden Raspberry (‘RAZZIE’) Awards.  Their film, based on a best-selling novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and starring an unrecognizable John Travolta as a Rasta-Haired, Yellow-Toothed, Cackling Psychotic Alien, took home spray-painted gold trophies in seven of the nine categories Dis-Honored in ceremonies held the traditional Day BEFORE the 73rd Annual Academy Awards® at the Radisson-Huntley Hotel’s Garden Room in Santa Monica, California.

 Among the $2.49 statuettes claimed by BATTLEFIELD were: Travolta as Worst Actor, his wife Kelly Preston (as a six-foot-tongued alien secretary!) for Worst Supporting Actress, his co-star Barry Pepper as Worst Supporting Actor (in the role Travolta had wanted to play when he first started pitching the project nearly 20 years ago), Roger Christian for Worst Director, Worst Screenplay (Corey Mandell and J.D. Shapiro, based on Hubbard’s Novel) Worst Screen Couple (“Travolta and Anyone Sharing the Screen with Him!”) and, of course, Worst Picture.  EARTH’s seven statuettes pull it into a dead-even tie with All-Time RAZZIE Champion SHOWGIRLS (Which won Worst Picture of the Decade at last year’s 20th Annual RAZZIE Awards).

The only two awards NOT given to BATTLEFIELD were in categories where it wasn’t even nominated: Worst Actress of 2000 went to last year’s Worst Actress of the Century “Winner” Madonna as a Single Mom fighting for custody of her child in The Ham-Fisted Melodramatic Ham-Fest THE NEXT BEST THING. Worst Remake or Sequel was BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH, TOO, which grossed less than $30 million as the follow-up to last year’s $140+ million-grosser THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

 “Winners” were determined by mailing ballots to some 535 GRAF Members throughout 35 U.S. states and a dozen foreign countries.  The actual award, a golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled Super 8 film reel spray-painted gold, was designed by RAZZIE Founder John Wilson, a graduate of the UCLA Motion Picture/TV Department and author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES. As was the case 96.7% of the time in the previous 20 years, actual “Winners” were NOT expected to attend or make overlong thank you speeches…

Polling a whopping 93.5% of all nominating ballots cast, the High Profile Sci-Fi Fiasco BATTLEFIELD EARTH looks like it could unseat 1995's Lascivious Lap-Dancing Laugh Riot SHOWGIRLS as the All-Time RAZZIE Champion. With nine categories being Dis-Honored this year, EARTH took a total of eight nominations. They include it's co-producer and star John Travolta for Worst Actor, his wife Kelly Preston as Worst Supporting Actress and both Forest Whitaker and Barry Pepper for Worst Supporting Actor, as well as nods for Worst Direction (Roger Christian) Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Couple (John Travolta and ANYONE Sharing the Screen with Him). The Big Budget B.O. Bomb easily out-polled its rivals for Worst Picture (BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2, THE FLINTSTONES IN VIVA ROCK VEGAS, LITTLE NICKY and THE NEXT BEST THING) each of which got five nominations or less.

Joining five time RAZZIE nominee Travolta in the Worst Actor category are 1998 RAZZIE Winner Leonardo DiCaprio for THE BEACH; 1999's Worst Actor Winner Adam Sandler as the Swivel-Headed Spawn of Satan in LITTLE NICKY; Clone-Man the Bavarian Ah-nold Schwarzenegger for THE 6th DAY; and last year's Worst Actor of the Century Winner Sylvester Stallone, garnering his 25th RAZZIE nomination to date (this time for the wretched remake GET CARTER). The Worst Actress choices are ALL Repeat Offenders: Last year's Worst Actress of the Century, Madonna, as an Insipid Single Mom in THE NEXT BEST THING; Two-Time RAZZIE Winner Melanie Griffith, cast against type as a Spoiled Movie Star Making a Bad Movie in CECIL B. DEMENTED; 1990 nominee Bette Midler, managing to make schlock novelist Jacqueline Susann seem even more grating than she actually was in ISN'T SHE GREAT; Two Time Winner Demi Moore as A Woman Leading a Doubly Dull Double Life in PASSION OF MIND; and fifth time RAZZIE nominee Kim Basinger for both the OMEN Knock-Off BLESS THE CHILD and the OUT OF AFRICA Knock-Off I DREAMED OF AFRICA.

Among the other films vying for a hand-made, spray-painted gold trophy (with an estimated street value of $4.27) are 2000's Two Biggest Box Office Hits, DR. SEUSS'S HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS and MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2. They are competing with one another for Worst Remake or Sequel, while GRINCH has a Worst Screenplay nomination and M:I 2 polled a nod for Tom Cruise' Main Squeeze in the film, Thandie Newton as Worst Supporting Actress. Newton's competition includes Patricia Arquette in LITTLE NICKY, Joan Collins in VIVA ROCK VEGAS, Rene Russo for ADVENTURES OF ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE and Mrs. Travolta. The three non-BATTLEFIELD EARTH Worst Supporting Actor nominees are Stephen Baldwin in VIVA ROCK VEGAS, Keanu Reeves in THE WATCHER and, getting a separate nomination for his portrayal of the main character's CLONE, Ah-nold Schwarzenegger (AGAIN!). Austria's Most Awful Actor is also nominated (with Himself!) as Worst Screen Couple, where hell be trying to out-gun Any Two Actors from BLAIR WITCH 2, Richard Gere and the 22-years-younger Winona Ryder for AUTUMN IN NEW YORK, Madonna and Either Benjamin Bratt or Rupert Everett in NEXT BEST THING and Travolta and Anyone from BATTLEFIELD.

Winners of this years Least Coveted Cinema Trophies will be announced at a press conference scheduled for 11am Saturday, March 24 (the now traditional 24 hours BEFORE That Other Movie Award Show). Nominees were determined by ballots sent to 503 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 35 U.S. states and 10 foreign countries.

Whatta Travoltin’ Development…7pm Saturday, Feb. 3rd @ RAZZIE HQ 
Preview Nite 2001: It’s A ‘BATTLEFIELD’ with No Dearth of RAZZIE Contenders 
See Clips, Snips and Caustic Critics’ Quips on LITTLE NICKY, THE NEXT BEST THING, M:I-2… and LOTS More of 2000’s BERRY Worst! 



Variety called it “The SHOWGIRLS of sci-fi shoot-‘em-ups.” The New York Times said it “may well be the Worst Movie of the NEW Century!” TIME toe-tagged it “the worst movie in living memory.” And The Toronto Star said “we are now spared the sleepless nights of wondering which gobbler will dominate the RAZZIE Awards for Worst Turkey of the Year!” They’re talking, of course, about The One Movie of 2000 that EVERYONE agrees Stunk to High Hubbard: BATTLEFIELD EARTH, Our Main Feature for Preview Nite XXI, at RAZZIE HQ on Saturday, February 3rd at 7pm. 

A Perfect Example of how Religious Zealotry and Superstar Ego do NOT Make for Good Movie-Making, BATTLEFIELD is a miss-fire of Jaw-Dropping Dimensions. In fact, Variety got it wrong: It’s not the SHOWGIRLS of sci-fi shoot-‘em-ups, it’s the INCHON of the genre! Co-produced by its star John Travolta and based on a novel by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard, EARTH is set on our planet a thousand years hence, when a Super Intelligent Race called Psychlos have enslaved mankind. How Super Intelligent are they? They seem never to have grasped the concept of bathing, brushing their teeth or combing their hair. They speak in dialogue and accents that sound like Dudley Doo-Right’s Nemesis Snidely Whiplash– Without ANY of His Subtlety. And to prove that Humans Are Inferior, they give one of them access to the very knowledge and weaponry needed to overthrow the Psychlos. Sounds like maybe they’re no more Super Intelligent than the Dumb Schnooks who sank some $85 million into producing this GODZILLA-sized Turkey. Shot in Oddly Askew Camera Angles, Slathered with a Sliminess about its Props and Characters that Makes One’s Flesh Crawl and Ploddingly Plotted to boot, BATTLEFIELD seems likely to get at least one Nomination in every category where it’s listed on this year’s RAZZIE Nominating Ballot. 

And, as the ballot makes clear, 2000 had No Shortage of Berry Bad Movies. We’ll also be tossing in tid-bits from: Worst Actress of The Century Madonna Proving Even-Gay-Guys-Can’t-Resist-Me-If-They’re-Drunk-Enough in The Year’s Most Fatuous Family “Drama” THE NEXT BEST THING; 1999 Worst Actor “Winner” Adam Sandler in and as (and Largely-to-Blame-for-It’s-Being-So-Lame) LITTLE NICKY; Potential Worst Actress Repeat Offender Bette Milder, Somehow Managing to Make Valley of the Dolls Author Jacqueline Susann seem Even MORE Obnoxious Than She Really Was in ISN’T SHE GRATING; 1997 Best Supporting Actress Oscar® Winner (And Perennial RAZZIE Also-Ran) Kim Basinger Strip-Mining Meryl Streep Territory in I DREAMED OF AFRICA; Worst Supporting Actress Hopeful Joan Collins playing what Entertainment Weakly called a “T. Rex in DYNASTY Drag” in The Stone Age Sequel That Isn’t. Even It’s RAZZIE Winning Precursor’s Equal THE FLINTSTONES IN VIVA ROCK VEGAS; 1998 Worst Screen Couple “Winner” Leonardo (Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful!) DiCaprio playing A Bored Adventurer Seeking Some Sun on THE BEACH; Worst Screen Couple Contenders Tom (Whatta Namazing Rubber Mask!) Cruise and Thandie (This Year’s Denise Richards) Newton in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 2… 

And More…And Worse…Way, WAY Worse! Attendees get to Hand Deliver Their Nominating Ballots (and Alter Them After Seeing Some of This Dreck!) For More Information About This Event, Inquire To: HeadBerry@razzies.com

We’ll Provide The Corn Dogs and Door Prizes… You Provide The Laughs!! 

_____________________________________________________________________ 

The Worst Kind of GOSSIP! 

DOES THIS MEAN SHE’LL NEVER ACT AGAIN??? (NOT THAT EVER DID!) According to an article in PEOPLE Magazine (in the “Where Are They Now” section) Our Former Poster Child Pia Zadora has settled for Life Out of the Limelight. Posing for a photo with mouth agape in front of an Andy Warhol Triptych of her face (bought and paid for by billionaire ex-husband Meshulam Riklis) The Hapless Home Body and Mother of Three said, “I don’t miss show business at all – I’ve been there and done that!” Including one Grammy nomination, one Golden Globe Award, Six RAZZIE Noms…and Four RAZZIE “Wins”! 

YO! WHO BUT HE COULD PLAY ‘WHO’…?? A recent Internet item says the producers of a long-delayed DR. WHO movie have chosen their leading man: None other than Our Awl-Time Cham-Peen and Worst Actor of The Century “Winner” Sylvester Stallone (who’s up for a potential 25thRAZZIE Nomination this year for GET CARTER). Dat Rocky Dude apparently beat out fellow RAZZIE “Winner” Tom Selleck, among others. The film may shootin England later this year…But won’t that mean DuhSly Wun will have to learn a new language?!? 

A HOLLYWOOD EXPOSE’ OF THE LITERAL KIND? Now that his Oddball Novel-Cum-Roman-a-Clef American Rhapsody has sold 125,000 copies, RAZZIE Worst Screenplay Namesake Joe Eszterhas says he’s ready to write about “the reality, the myth, the laughter and the tears, the stars and the bit players” of  Tinsel Town. Promising “the truest book about Hollywood ever written,” That Screen-Writin’ Schmoe says it’ll be “a loving book and a not-so-loving book…” It’s set to be in bookstores in time for next year’s Oscar/RAZZIE Season… 

AS ‘MOMMIE’ DEAREST HERSELF ONCE SAID: “I WANT ALL THOSE BUSHES OUT OF THE ROSE GARDEN!!” Among the Very Few “Celebrities” President-Select George W. (“When-The-Supremes-Stopped-The-Counting-I-Claimed-I-Won!”) Bush could find to attend his Inaugural Balls and Bashes were RAZZIE Perennials and Past “Winners” like Ah-nold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Wayne Newton, Tom Selleck and The Only One There Who MIGHT Be Dimmer Than The Prez-to-Be: RAZZIE Queen Bo Derek.

Living Room Drive-In's Back! Featuring The 20th RAZZIES on Video w/a Sexy(?) 100 YEARS/100 STINKERS Finalist

See Good Ol' Bob Conrad Accept 3 Berry Statuettes for ‘WILD WILD WEST' and Just Plain OLD Mae West Looking Sadly Statuesque in ‘SEXTETTE'

If you were there, you  know. If you weren't, high-tail it on over here to see it. Even though we DO say it Every Year, this year's RAZZIE Ceremonies Really  WERE Our BEST Ever! And at 7pm on Saturday, Dec. 2nd at Razzie HQ, you can join us for a Living Room Drive-In Double Feature of The 20th Annual RAZZIE Awards on video plus Septuagenarian Mae West still trying her best to be "sexy" in one of our strangest 100 YEARS/100 STINKERS contenders: SEXTETTE. 

Wall-to-wall with guffaws, classic clips and cutting critics' quips, our 20th ceremony whizzes through 13 categories in less than 85 minutes. Featuring Special Awards for The Worst Actor and Actress of The Century (as
well as Worst Picture and Worst New Star of The 90's) it is The Quintessential Celebration of Two Decades of Deliriously Awful Drek. Yet The True Highlight ISN'T The Special Awards -- It's a Very Special Guest Star Accepting In Person on behalf of Woeful Worst Picture "Winner" WILD WILD WEST.

Just as Ye Olde Head RAZZberry was heading off to our first cast rehearsal last March, the phone rang. "This is Bob," said the caller, "Bob Conrad. I'd LOVE to accept The RAZZIES if WILD WILD WEST wins any..." Well, ya coulda knocked us over with a feather! Of course, we said "YES!" And we couldn't have found a Better Bitter Banterer if we'd cast it ourselves. Funny, Self-Deprecating and Superbly Snide, Conrad's three speeches are all howlers. In fact, they actually topped director Paul Verhoeven's 1996 acceptance for SHOWGIRLZ (a clip of which is also in the show). All-in-all a true Evening to Remember, and one no RAZZIE Member Will Ever Forget. And it was all beautifully captured for us on video by Mike Medlock...  Speaking of Unforgettable, our 2nd feature with The 20th RAZZIE Awards will be The Only Movie Musical Featuring Varicose Cleavage: 178-year-old Mae West  letched after by Alice Cooper, Ringo Starr, Tony Curtis, Timothy Dalton, Regis Philbin(!) and 1987 RAZZIE "Winner" Dom deLuise in The Incredibly UN-Sexy SEXTETTE.  A finalist in our 100 YEARS/100 STINKERS Poll, it's also listed in Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide as a "BOMB"and in The Worst Movies of All Time as a Megaton Bomb.   

Variety called it "Cruel and unnecessary...An embarrassing attempt at camp from the lady who invented the word!" Suffice it to say You Haven't Seen BAD ‘till You've Seen Mae in a Frighteningly Revealing Negligee Geriatrically Gyrating and Lip-Synching to "Love Will Keep Us Together" while "seducing" her sixth husband (thus the title SEXTETTE - - Get it!?!?).

To attend this Mae-Mentous Event (and get a shot at Berry Cool Door Prizes,
including a VHS copy of The 20th RAZZIES!)
Please RSVP to
HeadBerry@razzies.com--Then Come On Up and See Us Some Time!
(7pm Saturday Deember 2nd, That Is!)


The WORST Kind of GOSSIP!

BOTTOMS UP! In an apparent attempt to prevent film-makers from shooting his Current Girth in anything but Close-Ups, 1996 Worst Supporting Actor "Winner" Marlon Brando reportedly showed up on the set of his new film THE SCORE naked from the waist down! Just think -  soon you may be able to Surf The Net for The Scariest Out-Takes EVER! 

KEVIN'S CAREER...HAS LEFT THE BUILDING! High on our Can't Wait-to-RAZZ-It List of Up-Coming Releases is 3-Time Worst Actor "Winner" Kevin Costner  in 3,000 MILES TO GRACELAND. The Notoriously NOT Funny Actor plays...an Elvis Impersonator! Maybe 1983 Worst Supporting Actor  Jim Nabors could dub King Kev-ster's singing voice!?!? 

JUST DUST YOURSELF OFF AND GET BACK IN THE (RAZZIE) RACE... After  being off-screen since ALAN SMITHEE bombed in early ‘98, Awl-Time RAZZIE Cham-Peen (And Worst Actor of The Century "Winner") ?Sylvester Stallone was set to have 2 contenders released in 2000. GET CARTER, a remake of a 1971 Michael Caine thriller (with Caine in a too-cute cameo!) has already come and gone. But his other finished film (originally titled D-TOX) has been retitled EYE SEE YOU (A play on ICU). From the director of I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, it's apparently SO Good it was recently "pushed back" from this fall to early 2001. And Yo Mama's Boy is now filming DRIVEN (formerly titled FORMULA ONE) in which a Wheelchair-Bound Stuh-Llone plays a Race Driver paralyzed in an accident who now manages Fellow Aging Wonder Boy (and Worst Actor "Winner") Burt Reynolds. With a screenplay by Sly Hiz-Self and co-starring Gina (SHOWGIRLZ) Gershon, it's being directed by Renny (FORD FAIRLANE) Harlin. Sounds like BANG THE DRUM SLOWLY crossed with...STROKER ACE!

    For Immediate Release

    RAZZIES® ANNOUNCE WORST IN FILM 
    NOMINEES FOR 1999, THE 90's - AND 
    THE CENTURY!

      

    Some of Hollywood's biggest money winners of 1999 were also the biggest losers 
    in the eyes of the Razzies, as the Golden Raspberry Awards Foundation announced
     its nominees for the Razzie Awards, dis-honoring the Worst Films of 1999.

    Three of the biggest money-makers of the year, Adam Sandler's "Big Daddy", The 
    Ultra-Low Budget thriller "The Blair Witch Project" and George Lucas' pointless 
    prequel, "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace", received nods for Worst Picture 
    of the Year, while box-office bomb "Wild Wild West" and the un-haunting "The Haunting" rounded out the list. "Wild Wild West" and "Star Wars Episode I" received eight nominations each, including nods for Kevin Kline (as Worst Actor, Supporting Actress, AND Worst Screen Couple), George Lucas (as Worst Director and Screenwriter), and the computer-animated character Jar-Jar Binks (as Worst Supporting Actor and Worst New Star).

    Other notable nominees included Salma Hayek for her supporting roles in "Dogma" and 
    "Wild Wild West", Kevin Costner for his leading roles in "Message in a Bottle" and "For 
    Love of the Game", Catherine Zeta-Jones for her roles in "Entrapment" and "The Haunting", and newcomer Heather Donahue for her unscripted ramblings in "The Blair Witch Project".

    Celebrating two decades as Tinseltown's Tackiest Anti-Awards Show, The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation traditionally announces its nominees for its Razzie(r) Awards 24 hours before "that other awards show". This year, in addition to its normal categories (Worst 
    Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Screen Couple, etc.) the Razzies will include four Special Awards, dis-honoring the Worst Picture and Worst New Star of The Decade, and in "The Ultimate Dis-Honor", Worst Actor and Actress of The Century.

    Among the Worst Films of the Decade are: "An Alan Smithee Film: Burn, Hollywood, Burn!", "Hudson Hawk", Kevin Costner's "The Postman", "Striptease" and "Showgirls". Worst Actor of the Century nominees include Kevin Costner, The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, William Shatner, Pauly Shore and All-Time Razzie Champion Sylvester Stallone, while Worst 
    Actress of The Century nominees include Elizabeth Berkley, Bo Derek, Madonna, Brooke Shields and Pia Zadora.

    A complete list of nominees in all 12 Razzie categories is included with this press release.

    "Winners" of the Razzie Awards (though in this case, that may not be the word!) will be announced in a tongue-in-cheek ceremony scheduled for 8pm/PST on Saturday, 
    March 25th in The Academy Room of the fabled Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel - 24 hours 
    before "That Other Award Show".

    Nominations were determined by mailing ballots to more than 450 G.R.A.F. members 
    (film fans, film journalists and film professionals) in 34 US states and eight foreign 
    countries. The actual Razzie Award, a gold-spray-painted plastic raspberry atop a 
    mangled Super 8 film reel, now has an inflation-adjusted estimated street value of about $4.27.

    The public is invited to vote for the Worst Films of the Century for the upcoming 
    "100 Films, 100 Stinkers" poll, to be announced later this year. The ballot is available exclusively on our web site at http://www.razzies.com.

    The Razzies were founded in 1980 by John Wilson, a UCLA Film School graduate and 
    author of "Everything I Know I Learned At The Movies".

    Razzies.com is one of the more heavily trafficked humorous destinations on the internet, 
    and was created and produced by Dave Kalin and DK Digital Media.

    To arrange an interview with Wilson, or get additional information Straight from The 
    Head RAZZberry, please contact HeadBerry@razzies.com.

    For Immediate Release

    RAZZIES® ANNOUNCE WORST IN 
    FILM NOMINEES FOR 1999, 
    THE 90's - AND THE CENTURY!

      

    Celebrating two decades as Tinseltown's Tackiest Anti-Awards Show, The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation has chosen Valentine's Day to announce nominees for its Gala 20th 
    Annual RAZZIE® Awards, Dis-Honoring Worst Achievements in Film. This year, in 
    addition to the now familiar categories (Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Screen Couple, etc.) The RAZZIES will include four Special Awards: Worst Picture and Worst New Star of The Decade and, in The Ultimate Dis-Honor, Worst Actor and Actress of The Century. "Winners" (though in this case, that may not be the word!) will be announced in a tongue-in-cheek ceremony scheduled for 8pm/PST on Saturday, March 25th in 
    The Academy Room of the fabled Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel - The now-traditional 24 hours BEFORE That Other Award Show…

    Among the Potential RAZZ-ees are: Kevin Costner, The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, William Shatner, Pauly Shore and All-Time RAZZIE Cham-Peen Sylvester Stallone as 
    Worst Actor of The Century and Elizabeth Berkley, Bo Derek, Madonna, 
    Brooke Shields and Pia Zadora as Worst Actress of The Century. Worst Picture of 
    The Decade choices include past Worst Picture of The Year "Winners" AN ALAN 
    SMITHEE FILM: BURN, HOLLYWOOD, BURN! HUDSON HAWK, THE POSTMAN, 
    STRIPTEASE and (of course!) SHOWGIRLS. For 1999, the most-nominated titles 
    include Worst Picture contenders WILD WILD WEST and THE HAUNTING plus three 
    of The Year's Biggest Money-Makers: Adam Sandler's BIG DADDY, The Ultra-Low Budget "Thriller" BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and George Lucas' Pointless Prequel, STAR WARS: 
    EPISODE I. A complete list of nominees in all 12 RAZZIE categories is included with 
    this press release.

    Nominations were determined by mailing ballots to more than 450 G.R.A.F. members 
    (film fans, film journalists and film professionals) in 34 US states and eight foreign 
    countries. The RAZZIES were founded in 1980 by John Wilson, a UCLA Film School 
    graduate and author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES. The actual RAZZIE Award, a gold-spray-painted plastic raspberry atop a mangled Super 8 film 
    reel, now has an inflation-adjusted estimated street value of about $4.27.

    The public is invited to vote for the Worst Films of the Century in our official "100 Films, 
    100 Stinkers" poll, available exclusively on our web site at . Razzies.com is one of the more heavily trafficked humorous destinations on the internet, 
    and was created and produced by Dave Kalin and DK Digital Media.

    Starting with an Oscar Night ceremony so small it was actually staged in a living room alcove, The Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE) Awards have 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 Remake or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple) The RAZZIES today receive television, radio and newspaper coverage around the world. Their yearly bestowing of Tinsel Town's Tackiest Trophies is regularly covered by all three major worldwide wire services (AP, UPI and Reuters) CNN, major market TV network affiliates across the U.S. and on nationwide ABC, NBC and CBS Network Radio news. They also receive print coverage in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, Premiere and People-on-Line Magazines. It has been estimated that the worldwide audience annually exposed to information about The RAZZIES is about One Billion People.

    Founded by Lifelong Cine-Maniac and Cynic John Wilson, author of both EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES and the just-published Warner Book THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE MOVIE GUIDE Enjoying The Best of Hollywood's WORST (Listing 100 of The Berry Funniest Bad Movies Ever Made), the RAZZIES are a light-hearted parody of award shows in general (and The Oscars in particular). The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation's well-aimed Darts of Derision have always been directed at Hollywood's High Profile Humiliations (rather than at the easier target of low-budget/drive-in fare). Worst Picture Dis-Honorees to date have included such Big Budget B.O. Bombs as HOWARD THE DUCK, HUDSON HAWK and CATWOMAN, as well as such Certified Camp Classics as MOMMIE DEAREST, SHOWGIRLS and BATTLEFIELD EARTH. "Winners" of RAZZIE Awards for what they would argue was acting range from such Highly Regarded But Project-Misguided stars as Halle Berry, Bill Cosby, Kevin Costner, Roberto Benigni and Laurence Olivier to such Top Name But Talent-Challenged performers as Madonna, Burt Reynolds, Prince, Brooke Shields, Bo Derek, RAZZIE Poster Child Pia Zadora and All-Time RAZZIE Champion (with an Impressive 10 "wins" -- And a Staggering 30 Nominations...to date!) Sylvester Stallone.

    Poised to Prick The Movie Industry's Pomp for as long as Hollywood keeps on making High-Profile Howlers, The RAZZIES are now entering their Second Quarter Century of Cremating Cinematic Crap -- And look forward to pursuing a development deal for finally getting one of the world's funniest awards shows broadcast.



    WORST ACTOR
    FROM SYLVESTER STALLONE TO LAURENCE OLIVIER...

    The RAZZIE's Worst Actor "Winners" haven't all been No Talent Ham-olas like Stallone -- Among them are several surprises, including Bill Cosby (LEONARD PART 6) and three-time RAZZee Kevin Costner (ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF DWEEBS, WYATT EARP and THE POSTMAN). This category covers The Worst Actors -- Big Movie Stars Who Can't Act, (like Burt Reynolds) Great Actors in Lousy Roles (like Olivier in INCHON!) and "Instant Stars" from The World of Pop Music Who Should Be Legally Barred from The Screen (like Neil Diamond in THE JAZZ SINGER and Prince in Any Movie He's Ever Made). From "Stars" Everyone Loves to Hate (like Andrew Dice Clay and Tom Green) to Actors So Bad Everyone's Already Forgotten Them (i.e. Klinton Spilsbury - ?!?!) The RAZZIES' have Dis-Honored some of The Silver Screen's Silliest Career Mistakes and Most Epically Embarrassing Performances...

    WORST ACTRESS
    BO, PIA, BROOKE, MADONNA and MOMMIE DEAREST

    The Lamest Dames in The Cinema Firmament Take Their Lumps here, covering more than Two Decades of Distaff Dis-Honors in a Category Dominated by "Repeat Offenders". Whether they Just Don't Pick Good Scripts, They're Gluttons for a Good RAZZing or They Truly Aren't Capable of Anything Better, Five Women have So Overshadowed This Category Their Annual Inclusion Should by Now Be Automatic: Faye (MOMMIE DEAREST) Dunaway, Muddle-Headed Model Brooke Shields, Immaterial Mom Madonna, The Woman Who Rates "Looks: 10, IQ... 10" Bo Derek and RAZZIE Poster Child Pia Zadora. Other "Winners" include Those Whose Only "Honors" have been RAZZIES (Scream Queen Linda Blair, SHOWGIRLS' Elizabeth Berkley and Mariah Carey in GLITTER) as well as Oscar Favorites Liza Minnelli and Sharon Stone...


    WORST PICTURE
    A DUCK NAMED HOWARD, A PLACE CALLED "INCHON" and WHY 'FREDDY' GOT FINGERED

    Like The Cinematic Sludge The RAZZIES exist to Dis-Honor, "Winners" of Worst Picture Run
    The Gamut of Truly Tacky Tinsel Town Output. In Their First Twenty-Two Years, The RAZZIES have consistently Let Rip Their Biggest Berries at Undeniable Under-Achievers, including Classic Misfires like HOWARD THE DUCK, WILD WILD WEST, FREDDY GOT FINGERED, SWEPT AWAY and CAN'T STOP THE MUSIC, and Bad Movies with Blood Lines Traceable to Reverend Moon (INCHON!) Bruce Willis (HUDSON HAWK and COLOR OF NIGHT) and John Derek's Inexplicable Need to Make Us All Voyeurs of His Vacuous Wife (GHOSTS CAN'T DO IT). But not every Worst Picture was also a Box Office Failure -- Boffo B.O. Bad Flicks that "Won" include COCKTAIL, RAMBO II and INDECENT PROPOSAL....

    OH, THAT BOY IS SUCH A CUT-UP! At the wrap party for her new film QUILLS, TITANIC Tootsie Kate Winslet decided she’d had just about enough of a party-crasher who showed up dressed as Dennis The Menace and, even when asked nicely, wouldn’t leave. As The Man in The Iron Dennis Mask was being unceremoniously ousted, he was un-masked – And turned out to be none other than 1998 Worst Screen Couple RAZZIE "Winner" (and Kate’s TITANIC co-star) Leonardo DiCaprio

     

    SO, HOW BAD WERE THE RATINGS?!?! She virtually disappeared from the face of The Earth after winning both Worst Supporting Actress and Worst New Star of 1990 (setting a record with 67% of all votes cast in a field of five con-tenders!). But now she’s back…as a potential Worst Supporting Actress choice for 1999 (playing one of Queen Armadillo’s handmaidens in STAR WARS, EPISODE I) and as A Punchline for Industry Jokes! Fox Broadcasting’s Doug Herzog recently characterized FBC’s less-than-stellar Fall Season with: "We had a bad fall – Not like Sofia Coppola in GODFATHER III bad, but like really bad!"

     

    ALL PAM, ALL THE TIME. OR IS THAT…ALL SPAM, ALL THE TIME?!?! Speaking of Worst New Star "Winners"(and Worst New Star of The Decade possibilities) That BARB WIRE Bimbo Pamela Anderson Lee just announced a 24-hour-a-day Internet TV channel, exclusively devoted to "original shows" about her activities. It’ll be called "WWW.PAMTV.COM". No word yet, though, on whether it’ll also feature her "hit" Home Videos...

    CONTACT: John Wilson / G.R.A.F. Website: E-Mail: HeadBerry@razzies.com For Immediate Release RAZZIES® ANNOUNCE WORST IN FILM NOMINEES FOR 1999, THE 90's - AND THE CENTURY! Celebrating two decades as Tinseltown's Tackiest Anti-Awards Show, The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation has chosen Valentine's Day to announce nominees for its Gala 20th Annual RAZZIE® Awards, Dis-Honoring Worst Achievements in Film.

    This year, in addition to the now familiar categories (Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Screen Couple, etc.) The RAZZIES will include four Special Awards: Worst Picture and Worst New Star of The Decade and, in The Ultimate Dis-Honor, Worst Actor and Actress of The Century. "Winners" (though in this case, that may not be the word!) will be announced in a tongue-in-cheek ceremony scheduled for 8pm/PST on Saturday, March 25th in The Academy Room of the fabled Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel - The now-traditional 24 hours BEFORE That Other Award Show…

    Among the Potential RAZZ-ees are: Kevin Costner, The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, William Shatner, Pauly Shore and All-Time RAZZIE Cham-Peen Sylvester Stallone as Worst Actor of The Century and Elizabeth Berkley, Bo Derek, Madonna, Brooke Shields and Pia Zadora as Worst Actress of The Century. Worst Picture of The Decade choices include past Worst Picture of The Year "Winners" AN ALAN SMITHEE FILM: BURN, HOLLYWOOD, BURN! HUDSON HAWK, THE POSTMAN, STRIPTEASE and (of course!) SHOWGIRLS. For 1999, the most-nominated titles include Worst Picture contenders WILD WILD WEST and THE HAUNTING plus three of The Year's Biggest Money-Makers: Adam Sandler's BIG DADDY, The Ultra-Low Budget "Thriller" BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and George Lucas' Pointless Prequel, STAR WARS: EPISODE I. A complete list of nominees in all 12 RAZZIE categories is included with this press release.

    Nominations were determined by mailing ballots to more than 450 G.R.A.F. members (film fans, film journalists and film professionals) in 34 US states and eight foreign countries. The RAZZIES were founded in 1980 by John Wilson, a UCLA Film School graduate and author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES. The actual RAZZIE Award, a gold-spray-painted plastic raspberry atop a mangled Super 8 film reel, now has an inflation-adjusted estimated street value of about $4.27.

    The public is invited to vote for the Worst Films of the Century in our official "100 Films, 100 Stinkers" poll, available exclusively on our web site at . Razzies.com is one of the more heavily trafficked humorous destinations on the internet, and was created and produced by Dave Kalin and DK Digital Media.

    To arrange an interview with Wilson, or get additional information Straight from The Head RAZZberry, please contact HeadBerry@razzies.com.
