Last month we learned which of the most horrible films of the horrible films of 2010 were nominated for Golden Raspberry Awards and today we learn which films walked away as the worst of the worst. As you may know, the Golden Raspberry Awards — or, Razzies — are handed out in a special ceremony on the night before the Academy Awards as a way to honor … er … single out the worst of the worst in film. This year, the film that took home the most Razzies was the M. Night Shyamalan crapfest known as The Last Airbender. The runner up, nabbed the second highest number of Razzies, was the horribly disappointing (and kinda offensive) Sex and the City 2.
The night before the Academy Awards presents Oscars to the best achievement in films, the 31st annual Razzie Awards celebrated the “Berry Worst Achievement in Film” for 2010. The big “winner” — so to speak — at the satirical ceremony presented by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation on Saturday evening at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre was M. Night Shyamalan’s critically skewered 3-D fantasy film, “The Last Airbender.” The film took home Razzies for worst picture, worst director, worst screenplay, worst supporting actor for Jackson Rathbone, who also won for “Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” and the new Razzie category, worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D. The evening’s other major loser was “Sex and the City 2,” which took home worst actress for all four of its stars — Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon — worst sequel and worst screen ensemble honors. Worst actor went to Ashton Kutcher for two films — “Killers” and “Valentine’s Day” — and worst supporting actress went to Jessica Alba for four films — “The Killer Inside Me,” “Little Fockers,” “Machete” and “Valentine’s Day.”
In my mind, all of the nominees this year are worthy of Razzies. 2010 was a particularly bad year for horrible films. I can’t even get over how offensive, in hindsight, Sex and the City 2 was for me. I love the series so much and really adore the first film … the sequel was just SO bad in almost every respect. It may not have been the absolute worst film of the year … but it was bad enough to be singled out and I’m glad the Razzies did just that. I didn’t even bother to waste my time with The Last Airbender but from the true fans of the animated series that I heard from, M. Night’s live action version of the story and characters was a steaming pile of turds. I am not surprised that it was honored as the worst film of the worst films. In just a few hours, the best of the best film performances will be honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences … but it’s nice to pause, at least for a little while, to recognize the terrible films that offended our eyes and sensibilities ;) Click HERE for a full list of this year’s Razzie Awards winners.
