We’re used to the Razzie Awards taking place just before the Oscars paying tribute to the worst movies of the past 12 months but the organisers this year have moved the coveted award ceremony to April Fools’ Day, April 1st.
Previous winners include Sandra Bullock for the truly 2010 dreadful movie, All About Steve which co-starred Bradley Cooper and 2004 winner Halle Berry who won the award for Catwoman. In the year Bullock won, she also won the Oscar for Best Actress for he Blind Side which made it all rather amusing! Maximum respect had to go to both actresses who both turned up at the Razzie awards to pay tribute to the tripe they’d created! I’ve placed YouTube clips below with the acceptance speeches.Love Berry’s speech who mocks her own speech that she gave at the 2002 Oscars when she won Best Actress for Monster’s Ball.
According to organisers, the awards has moved to April to give the voting members more time “to see the drek they will eventually nominate”.
“John Wilson and Mo Murphy, co-owners of the Razzies, saw a unique opportunity to do something they’ve wanted to do since their awards were created in 1980: emphasise [its] comedic intent by unveiling the “winners” of Tinsel Town’s Tackiest Trophy on April Fools’ Day.”
The nominees will be announced on Oscar Eve, 25th February. Adam Sandler is tipped to win loads this year for his latest contributions in Just Go With It, Bucky Larson and Jack and Jill.
