You may also notice that certain categories
are "missing" from our 1999 Nominating Ballot: Worst
New Star, Worst Remake or Sequel and Worst
"Original" Song of The Year. These
"missing" categories were dropped (for this year only)
and replaced with the Special Awards. But rest assured, they
will be dealt with in the course of our show!
Set for 8pm/PST on Saturday, March 25th
in The Academy Room of The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, The
Gala 20th Annual RAZZIE Awards will feature (in
addition to the Special Awards) Retrospective Clips of both
"Winners" and Ceremonies Past, Dramatic Readings of
Classic RAZZIE Lyrics and MORE. They promise to be A
Night You’ll Long Remember…Whether you’re attending as a
RAZZIE Member …or a Potential RAZZIE Recipient!
The WORST Kind of GOSSIP!
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
No word yet, though, on whether it’ll also feature her
"hit" Home Videos...
