If it's crap ... We'll tell you
The 31st Annual Golden Raspberry Awards (aka "The Razzies") are back again with their list of film "winners" in a number of categories. The Razzies - Hollywood's id to the Oscar's super-ego - focuses solely on the very worst the movie industry has to offer each year. Created in 1980 as a parody of typical, self-congratulatory award shows, the off-kilter award ceremony was held Saturday night in Hollywood.
M. Night Shaymalan's "The Last Airbender" - the butchered 3D "reimagining" of the popular US animated series - took home the most "wins" for the evening. With it's jumbled plot, poor casting, and it's inability to even pronounce the main character's name right, the film took home the dishonor of being voted the "Worst Picture 2010" as well as picking up "Worst Director", "Worst Screenplay", and "Worst Supporting Actor" for Jackson Rathbone (who was dually mentioned for his role Airbender and in 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse'). It even won in a brand new category for 2011 - "Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D". Called a "cinematic wet fart", the film left the audience hoping that yes, with any luck it actually would be the Last Airbender.
The only other film to come close to Airbender's "winning" streak was the horrifying "Sex and the City 2" - which, by most accounts, was a cautionary tale about a group of mummies in the desert trying to suck the life out of any man within reach. It netted a four-way tie for "Worst Actress" between Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon, as well as "Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble" for the entire cast, and finally "Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel" (which was a combined category for 2010).
Ashton Kutcher nabbed "Worst Actor" for his roles in "Killers" and "Valentine's Day", and Jessica Alba easily walked away with "Worst Supporting Actress" for her roles in "The Killer Inside Me", "Little Fockers", "Machete", and "Valentine's Day" (basically every single film she made in 2010).
