This year, the Razzies will announce their dishonorable nominees on Oscars’ eve, February 25th, 2012. Because we hate waiting, we went ahead and put together our list of who we think the nominees will be. Bear in mind, the Razzies take terrible films very seriously and their nominees are determined by more than 725 film professionals, film journalists and film fans from around the U.S. and 15 foreign countries. And I’m just one man. One man who really hated Joe Wright‘s Hanna.
That said, I don’t envy the Razzie committee. There was just so much sh*t in theaters in 2011. And though I hate Hanna with a fiery passion, I just couldn’t fit it into the categories where it really deserved to be publicly gutted. Here’s my stab at who I think will be in contention for the Razzies’ gold when the winners are announced on April Fools Day. We’ll see how close I was come February 25th.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part One
The Green Lantern
Jack & Jill
Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star
Just Go With It
Should the above films be nominated for Worst Picture, it’s going to be a tough race. Though I’d say the frontrunners are all in the Happy Madison camp. I could see Jack & Jill sweeping the entire ceremony, but Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star isn’t to be discounted either. The porn parody received a 0% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes as well as 0% laughter from audiences.
Though all of the ladies above were exceptionally terrible in these roles, Jack & Jill needs to be made an example of. We can’t just allow movies this bad to keep happening. We need to send a message to all of the Tyler Perrys and Big Mommas and whatever Rob Schneider is cooking up next.
