& the Losers Are (Razzies 2008)

On 25 January I did a post on the nominees for this year's Razzie Awards. The Razzie's are given to the year's worst & are announced 1 day before the Oscars. Well, they announced this year's winners last night. This year saw several new records set. This is the 1st time a single picture won 8 awards (I Know Who Killed Me), Eddie Murphy won 3 awards for his various roles in Norbit. & Lindsay Lohan won 3 for her various roles in I Know Who Killed Me. & while it wasn't the 1st time there was a tie for worst actress, this was the 1st time an actress tied with herself, & for 2 roles in the same movie to boot.


There was only 1 award that didn't go to Norbit or I Know Who Killed Me. & that 1 had a connection to Eddie Murphy. The Worst Sequel or Prequel award went to Daddy Day Camp, a sequel to Murphy's Daddy Day Care.


Anyhow, here are the complete list of the worst of the worst 2007:

I don't know if "Congratulations!" or "For Shame!" is the more appropriate thing to say to this years winners (losers). But what is really sad, this year's Razzies are much more interesting than this years Oscars. & that really says something about the sad state of Hollywood. & given this year's batch of movies it looks like the competition will be even rougher for the 29th Annual Awards.
