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.
