And The Razzie Goes To….
It’s Oscars Sunday out in Hollywood, so you already know what that means: The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation announced the Dis-Honor Roll for last year’s Worst in Film at a ceremony at Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre this weekend!
Pregnant starlet Jessica Alba, Ashton Kutcher, and the ladies of Sex and the City 2 were among the night’s big winners — Er…perhaps we should say losers!? — at Saturday’s ceremony. But the night’s biggest Razzies went to The Last Airbender.
M. Night Shyamalan’s fantasy action film was declared the “winner” of five Razzie Awards, including Worst Picture and Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3D. (Tough break…) The movie earned nearly $320 million at the international box office when it opened last summer, but was almost universally panned by film critics. The Worst Supporting Actor trophy went to the action film’s co-star Jackson Rathbone.
Ashton Kutcher scored the Worst Actor title after turning in chuckleworthy performances in Killers and Valentine’s Day, while Jessica Alba nabbed the Worst Supporting Actress Razzie for her work in The Killer Inside Me, Little Fockers, Machete, and Valentine’s Day. The four principle stars of Sex and the City 2 — Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis — were collectively named Worst Actress at this year’s Razzies. The film also won the plastic prizes for Worst Screen Couple/Worst Screen Ensemble, and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel.
The winners were determined by ballots lodged by 657 voters in the United States and 17 foreign countries.
