The 2011 Razzie Awards Nominees

The 2011 Razzie Awards nominees were announced today. I won’t waste any time. Let’s just get into them. This is the first I’m seeing of them, as I type them, so I’m really excited to see how close they match with my Unforgivables:

Worst Picture

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

Jack and Jill

New Year’s Eve

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

I don’t understand the Transformers hatred, but I’ve come to expect it. Otherwise, I understand most of those. Why New Year’s Eve instead of Just Go With It, I don’t know, but I think we all know which film is gonna… twin this award.

Oh, I’m fucking hilarious.

Worst Actor

Russell Brand, Arthur

Nicolas Cage, Drive Angry, Season of the Witch and Trespass

Taylor Lautner, Abduction and Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Adam Sandler, Jack and Jill and Just Go With It

Nick Swardson, Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

No surprise there at all. Again, don’t understand the Cage thing, but whatever. Brand deserves this simply because of what they did to the original with that sequel. Sandler wins this cold.

Worst Actress

Martin Lawrence, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son

Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin: The Undefeated

Sarah Jessica Parker, I Don’t Know How She Does It and New Year’s Eve

Adam Sandler, Jack and Jill

Kristen Stewart, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

I’d say take Sarah Jessica here, but I’m not the best judge of horse flesh. I hope Sandler wins this. I want to see him win as many awards as possible.

Worst Supporting Actor

Patrick Dempsey, Transformers: Dark of the Moon

James Franco, Your Highness

Ken Jeong, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, The Hangover: Part 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Zookeeper

Al Pacino, Jack and Jill

Nick Swardson, Jack and Jill and Just Go With It

I’ve a feeling they’re gonna vote Pacino here just because they can. Swardson deserves it so much more. This is kinda like when Pacino was nominated for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in the same year and needed to win one, only — the opposite of that. Swardson was awful all around this year.

Worst Supporting Actress

Katie Holmes, Jack and Jill

Brandon T. Jackson, Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son

Nicole Kidman, Just Go With It

David Spade, Jack and Jill

The Underwear Model (aka Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Remember in the Unforgivables when I said that movie was grounds for Nicole Kidman to give back that Oscar?

 Worst Director

Michael Bay, Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Tom Brady, Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

Bill Condon, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Dennis Dugan, Jack and Jill and Just Go With It

Garry Marshall, New Year’s Eve

 Holy shit, Dennis Dugan earned this thing twice over. I thought they had separate directors. Oh my god that’s awful.

 Worst Screen Ensemble

The Cast of Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

The Cast of Jack and Jill

The Cast of New Year’s Eve

The Cast of Transformers: Dark of the Moon

The Cast of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

I feel like they might go ensemble here and give it to New Year’s Eve or Twilight, but honestly, I’m rooting for the sweep all the way. This is awesome. What’s the opposite of “Artist”?

Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel

Arthur

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

The Hangover Part 2

Jack and Jill

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

I like how they count The Hangover as “both a sequel and a remake!” That’s funny. Honestly, Arthur should win here, but I’m still rooting for the sweep.

Worst Screen Couple

Nicolas Cage & Anyone Sharing the Screen with Him, Drive Angry, Season of the Witch and Trespass

Shia LaBeouf & The Underwear Model (aka Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Adam Sandler & EITHER Jennifer Aniston OR Brooklyn Decker, Just Go With It

Adam Sandler & EITHER Katie Holmes, Al Pacino OR Adam Sandler, Jack and Jill

Kristen Stewart & EITHER Taylor Lautner OR Robert Pattinson, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Tough category, considering all the permutations. But clearly it has to be Sandler and Sandler. I know they love voting for sweeps when the year is right. And the year is most definitely right.

Worst Screenplay

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star, by Adam Sandler, Allen Covert and Nick Swardson

Jack and Jill, by Steve Koren and Adam Sandler (story by Ben Zook)

New Year’s Eve, by Katherine Fugate

Transformers: Dark of the Moon, by Ehren Kruger

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, by Melissa Rosenberg

Oh what a shitty year for Sandler. Give him as many awards as humanly possible.

– – – – – – – – – –

I love the Razzies. Even though they have some questionable biases, generally they’re all right in knowing what the shitty stuff is. That was fun. Hopefully I’ll remember to update when the actual awards are handed out. They’re on April Fools’ Day. Maybe the joke is that they won’t actually hand them out.
