The Other Motion Picture Awards

About a month ago, Americans were star-struck watching who would win the Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Actor, etc.  Now, some of us are waiting to hear the winners of the Golden Raspberry Award!

The Razzies are in their thirty-second year of presenting “dis-honors for the worst achievements in film.”  On April 1, awards will be given in categories such as: Worst Picture, Worst Actress and Actor, and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel.  In the history of the Razzies, only two actors have personally accepted their awards – Halle Berry for Catwoman and Sandra Bullock for All About Steve.

This year the frontrunner for Worst Picture is Adam Sandler’s Jack & Jill.  In addition, the cast of Jack & Jill are in line for Worst Actor, Worst Actress (both Adam Sandler), Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Supporting Actress.  Will it be a sweep?

You can see the full list of this year’s Razzie nominees on their official site.  If there’s any you missed, check the library catalog or ask a librarian – we own most of the titles.  For a great comparison, we also have a majority of this and past years’ Oscar winners available.  Again, just check the catalog or ask a librarian.

We’d love to hear your opinion about the best and worst movies and actors!  Are your choices Oscars or Razzies?
