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!?!?).

including a VHS copy of The 20th RAZZIES!)

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!
