2016 golden raspberry awards

There’s a list in Hollywood you don’t want to make, and that’s the nominees’ list for the Golden Raspberry Awards. Nicknamed the Razzies, they’re everything the Oscars® are not.

Awarding actors, directors and movies that have been deemed the worst of the past year, this is no-holds barred retribution for those hours of bad movie going you’ll never get back. Started in 1980 by John J. B. Wilson, the Razzies have included winners (or should that be losers) such as Oscar® recipients Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry and Kevin Costner.

To soften the blow of pinpointing the horror Hollywood churned out, the Raspberry Redeemer Award was introduced last year. Awarded to an artist who has received a Razzie, or multiple nominations, but redeemed their career, its first recipient was Ben Affleck. In 2004 he won a Razzie for Worst Actor for subjecting us to Gigli, Daredevil and Paycheck. In the last few years he’s redeemed himself with movies such as Argo and Gone Girl.

The Razzie ceremony takes place the night before the Oscars®, hammering home the fact that some people in Hollywood just didn’t bring their A-game in the past year. It’s all in the name of good fun, and many celebrities have even attended the event and accepted their award.
