See Good Ol' Bob Conrad Accept 3 Berry Statuettes for ‘WILD
WILD WEST' and Just Plain OLD Mae West Looking Sadly Statuesque
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.
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
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.
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.
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!?!?).
attend this Mae-Mentous Event (and get a shot at Berry
Cool Door Prizes,
including a VHS copy of The 20th RAZZIES!) Please RSVP

(7pm Saturday Deember 2nd, That Is!)
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!
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!?!?
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!
