LAST night saw the 30th Golden Raspberry “Razzies” Award ceremony in Hollywood to honour the very worst films of 2009.
“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” scooped three awards for: Worst Picture, Worst Director (Michael Bay) and Worst Screenplay (Ehren Kruger, Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman).
“All About Steve” limped away with two awards for: Worst Actress (Sandra Bullock) and Worst Screen Couple (Sandra Bullock & Bradley Cooper).
“Land of the Lost” won: Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” won Sienna Miller: Worst Supporting Actress. “Hannah Montana: The Movie” won: Worst Supporting Actor (Billy Ray Cyrus). All three Jonas Brothers won: Worst Actor for their “3D Concert Experience”.
Special awards were handed out to the worst of the past decade in what has been an incredible 10 years for cinema goers.
Eddie Murphy won: Worst Actor of the Decade for his films: “The Adventures of Pluto Nash”, “I Spy”, “Imagine That”, “Meet Dave”, “Norbit” and “Showtime”.
Paris Hilton won: Worst Actress of the Decade for: “The Hottie and the Nottie”, “House of Wax” and “Repo! The Genetic Opera”.
And finally, the Worst Picture of the Decade award went to the truly awful “Battlefield Earth”. When it was released in 2000, critics universally panned it, calling it one of the very worst films ever made, as you can see from this mock “Entertainment Weekly” poster.
Anyway, enough with the preliminaries and on with the main event. It’s the Oscars tonight, and I’ll have a full run down of all the major winners for you.
