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.
