Razzie Awards Winners!

Summary

Every year, the Golden Raspberry Awards, better known simply as The Razzies, set out to (dis)honor the very worst in cinema. And this year, one film rose above all others: Adam Sandler's cross-dressing comedy Jack & Jill swept every single category. Check out the complete list of "awards" below, and for more information about the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, click here. Back to Article

You know, I feel kind of bad for Mr. Sandler.

I feel Bad for Al Pacino!! This guy is a 9 time Oscar nominee and then he goes on to star in crap like this? Sad!!

I can just picture if Al Pacino won and he actually accepted his award in person, and gave an incredibly funny speech kinda like when Sandra Bullock won her Razzie for All About Steve

yea, i dont feel bad for Mr. Sandler one bit. He makes millions from the idiots who actually shell out the dough for his movies and continue to do so. Exploiting idiots everywhere...you know the ones i'm talking about? The ones who's favorite movie of all time is probably Grown Ups.

I feel badly too, but I think his response to this would be a chuckle and something along the lines of "Sorry, I missed the razzies because I was too busy swimming in a pile of money." So you can't feel too badly.

If anything it's the American public's fault. He starred in films like Spanglish and Punch Drunk Love and no one went to see them. Audiences got what they wanted: stupid, pg-13 comedies

Because the raspberries make much more effort to cater to the tastes of angry fanboys than the Oscars do. If u think this was all the worst movies or performances you must not follow movies that closely.

How did I miss your comment before? Perfect summation. Most of their picks cater to "coolness" and satisfying the fanboy masses. It's unfortunate, as I'd really love to see the worst of the worst skewered. The razzies have now jumped the shark - ironic, as that's something they'd mock.

You're right, I'm too busy wasting my life watching decent movies that the academy was too close-minded to consider when I could've been watching shit like you.

I had heard that despite how awful Jack and Jill was, Al Pacino was surprisingly good in it.

Yeah!! Jack and Jill was awful, but Mr. Pacino really shouldn't be on that list.

Pacino needs to be on this list for appearing in a Sandler/Dugan film.

I agree, but his performance wasn't bad. Now, if they had a "Slumming Icon" category, then a resounding yes.

Yeah, a Slumming Icon category would be good.

I think he may have done it for the same reason Orson Welles did some of his commercials: to finance his own films. I know Al Pacino does some surprisingly independent films like 'Salome'. Maybe he was trying to replicate DeNiro and Hoffman. Who knows.

It was actually for Worst Actress. And the gender of the character is more important than that of the actor/actress.

Based on what I heard, I completely agree with this entire list. BLBTBAS and Jack And Jill are equally deserving of "winning" this. Thank goodness Seth Rogen missed the cut, heard he was on the pre-nomination list...

Aw Man Al Pacino, what happen to you man??? This guy starred in so many masterpieces and then goes on to star in an Adam Sandler cross dressing movie? That is sad maybe he really needed the money. Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star was a given, that or Jack and Jill will definitively win. Honestly, the new Transformers film wasn't that bad in my opinion (definitely an improvement from its predecessor), probably doesn't deserve a nomination for worst picture ( I saw worse like Season of the Witch).
Everything else seems just right though, looks like the Razzies really know how to do their job right (unlike another famous movie awards ceremony I know).

Feb 25 - 10:11 PM

I voted for Season of the Witch for Worst Picture on my nominations ballot. The thing is, if a film is REALLY bad, hatred will only get it so far in the nominations if not enough people have seen it.

And if by part 3 you don't know what you're getting into, well shame on you. Nominating a tranny movie is easy. I'd rather see something more polarizing on the list, like Tree of Life. Has a razzie nom ever matched an Oscar nom in the same year?

Feb 26 - 11:45 AM

Vicente Torres

Yes. Amy Irving was nominated for an Oscar and a Razzie for YENTL, which was also nominated for Best and Worst Music Score. And ARMAGEDDON was nominated for Best and Worst Song for I DON'T WANNA MISS A THING. There are more I can't remember.

Feb 26 - 01:03 PM

Helge Beck

Speaking of polarizing: For all it is and isn't, I liked Transformers 3 enough to place it in my newly established blu-ray collection right between Vanishing Point and... The Tree Of Life. As soon as you take "the masses" into account, Transformers 3 is just as polarizing a choice as the latter.

Hopefully, next year's Razzie. I don't think Act of Valor is qualified becuase it's already out and you're right, it does stink.

If any film released on February 24, 2012 gets a RAZZIE nomination, it's going to be "Gone" starring Amanda Seyfried.

Didn't see Act of Valor, but isn't it 2012 and besides I think the people aren't even actors. So give it a break. Jack and Jill deserves the shit it's getting because its got real actors in it.

It's a relieving to, for once, not have someone come in and blast us for "hating soldiers" or some bogus nonsense just because that movie sucked ass. Sorry, just because a movie stars Navy SEALS doesn't mean I need to blindly kiss it's ass! There's a reason why movies have actors- they can ACT (well...most of the time, anyway.)

I like the Razzies but my biggest problem is they don't seem to take themselves seriously - I know thats the joke but after so many years that joke has worn very thin. I think they could use a re-haul of their awards and maybe even structure themselves closer to the Oscars. I mean Adam Sandler and Martin Lawrence for worst actress? I get that since they are playing women in the movies they are trying to be clever by nominating them but its been done to death. If they just did it properly they really might become a properly respected awards show. Most of the awards seem to be cluttered like nominating one actor/actress for multiple films, why not just one? I think the joke of showing everyone how cool they are by nominating the worst movies needs to be freshened up and maybe by doing it all formal and almost pretending to take it very seriously they could start a new joke with a fresher punch line. I'm curious as to who wins and most of the nominees seem about right but it needs to be reined in a bit I think.

This post is a joke. Nobody cares who wins or loses these things. Its just a way to rip on bad movies. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Feb 26 - 01:10 AM

Brad H.

Brad Hadfield

No, I concur with the post. The razzies have an opportunity to really highlight the worst that Hollywood offers, yet they're squandering the opportunity by being cute or jumping on hate bandwagons. I mean, breaking dawn is on worst film, but not, say, human centipede 2? And on the twilight topic, Kristen Stewart as worst actress? Did they see the movie? She actually was very good. Not the lip-biting teen she's been in the others. So, it's obvious they're now catering to perceived coolness.

Feb 26 - 11:34 AM

It's interesting that they nominated Kristen Stewart for worst actress as even the critics who gave the film bad reviews praised her performance. Similarly Al Pacino was basically the only positive thing critics had to say about Jack and Jill.

HUMAN CENTIPEDE 2 was all over the ballots. It was lucky to not get any nominations.

Feb 26 - 01:08 PM

For as long as I've been keeping track of the Razzies! And in order for a movie to qualify for a "Razzie" must have big name actors and a huge budget, so in my opinion "The Human Centipede 2" doesn't qualify since they're hundreds of other 'low budget' horror films that can also make it to the same category as well! That's why films such as "Battlefield Earth" and "Catwoman" make the list since they're labelled as big budget movies with big name, high paying actors

Feb 27 - 12:43 PM

Digs in Twilight have long been pathetic, yes.

Because honestly, 35% one of the 5 worst movies on the year? Ugh.

Mar 2 - 01:54 AM

Dominic Fucinari

Dominic Fucinari

That problem started around 2010 with Twilight Saga: Eclipse. My latest hypothesis as to why it was nominated for Worst Picture of '010 was: For some reason, the head of the RAZZIES thought the awards and web forum weren't getting enough attention. To draw people in, he needed to spread Twilight: Eclipse all over the nominating ballots. Problem is, he accidentally went overboard and put it on the list for Worst Picture.

I told John Wilson (founder of the Razzies) the same thing, but he doesn't care if the awards are taken seriously or not.
