The Golden Raspberry Awards used to be an antidote to the Hollywood awards season. Now? They're part of the problem...
It's traditional that on the eve of the Oscars, the annual Golden Raspberry Awards take place. These have been going for a long time now, and the theory behind them is sound. If you're going to have awards ceremony after awards ceremony praising movies to the hilt, shouldn't you have one that highlights the dross that Hollywood has to offer too? In the words of The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation's website, the awards are designed to "prick the movie industry's pomp".
In principal, who's not on board with that? There's hardly a shortage of pomp to prick, and those movies you sit through where you get the sense that nobody cares should be named and shamed.
