Today is the big day when Hollywood throws its biggest party of the year in order to honor the best of the best in film … but before we get to that, let’s turn our attention to the 30th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards which were handed out last night here in Los Angeles, to honor the worst of the worst in film. As you may know, Sandra Bullock is nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards for her work in The Blind Side but she was also nominated (and won!) for Worst Actress at this year’s Razzie Awards for her work on All About Steve. Sandy was a total sport and made an appearance at the Razzie Awards ceremony last night to collect her award in grand style. Here, along with some deets from last night’s Razzies ceremony, are photos of Sandra Bollock collecting her award as well as a photo of writer J.D. Shapiro collecting his “lifetime achievement” award, Worst Film of the Decade, for his work on Battlefield Earth;
Sandra Bullock was crowned top of the flops at the 30th Razzie Awards here Saturday, the annual eve-of-Oscars spoof which pays homage to the very worst of Hollywood. Bullock — who could complete an unprecedented double on Sunday if she wins a best actress Oscar for her performance in “The Blind Side” — delighted guests at Los Angeles’s Barnsdall Theater by appearing to collect her award. The 45-year-old also handed out DVD copies of her offending performance in the box office flop “All About Steve” to guests. “I’ll show up again next year if you promise to watch the movie and really consider if it was the worst performance of the year,” said Bullock after receiving her “Razzie,” a plastic gold spray painted raspberry. “And if it isn’t, I’ll give back the Razzie,” added Bullock, revealing that she had cut out of a charity dinner with Hollywood powerbroker and producer Jeffrey Katzenberg to attend the awards. “Now I’ve got to get back to that event, because you know, it’s Jeffrey Katzenberg and he can basically prevent me from ever working again,” Bullock quipped. Bullock also picked up a Razzie for worst screen couple in partnership with “All About Steve” co-star Bradley Cooper. It was the first time a worst actress recipient had appeared in person to collect their Razzie since 2005, when Halle Berry walked off with the award for her performance in “Catwoman.” Elsewhere Saturday, the Razzies were spread across several films although the big winner was “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” ridiculed as “overlong, over-loud and underwhelming.” The film earned a worst director Razzie for Michael Bay as well as worst screenplay and worst picture. Worst actor was awarded to Disney boy band the Jonas Brothers for their performance in “Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience.” Worst supporting actor Razzies went to Billy Ray Cyrus for his part in “Hannah Montana: The Movie” and Sienna Miller for her part in the action film “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.” To mark the 30th edition of the Razzies, first held in 1980, organizers also revealed their worst under-achievers of the past decade. John Travolta’s much-lampooned Scientology-based sci-fi flick “Battlefield Earth” was crowned worst picture of the decade, while Eddie Murphy was named worst actor for a string of duds which included “Norbit” and “Meet Dave.” Socialite Paris Hilton was named worst actress for her box office flops “The Hottie and the Nottie,” “House of Wax,” and “Repo: The Genetic Opera.”
OMG … I love the Razzies!! What a fun way to “honor” the crappy films that many of us were tricked into seeing last year. While we may not be able to get our money back after we inadvertently see a stinker of a film, at least we can (at the very least) look forward to the Razzie Awards for some consolation. As usual, the Razzie Awards got the winners/losers right this year … I’m in full support of this year’s show. Much love and props goes out to Sandra Bullock and J.D. Shapiro for showing up to collect their awards … we all know their movies sucked, it’s nice to know that they acknowledge that fact as well. Congrats goes out to all the “winners”!!
