With all the hoopla about the big Sunday night movie award show, many of you might not have gotten the list of the big winners from Saturday night’s big movie awards show. I’m talking about the 34th Annual Razzie Awards. They were started in 1980 by John Wilson to celebrate the movie year’s worst achievements. The hour-long ceremony was held this past Saturday evening down the street from the site of Sunday’s big show. Without further ado, here’s the nominees and winners for the 2013 film year:
Worst Remake, Rip-off, Or Sequel:
- Jim Batts
12 Years A Slave is your 2014 Best Picture according to the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts, and Sciences, but the real winner is Movie 43. The ensemble sketch comedy film starring everyone from Hugh Jackman and Kate Winslet to Naomi Watts and Halle Berry was a commercial and critical disaster and pretty unfunny to boot. But, it can now enter the annals of movie history as one of the worst of all time. Movie 43 was up against stiff competition that also included After Earth, Grown Ups 2, »

Awards season comes to a head tonight as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents the winners of the Academy Awards, and - as is traditional - yesterday saw the very worst of cinematic achievement celebrated with the 34th annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
While Adam Sandler dominated the nominations (as usual) with Grown Ups 2, the Razzie favourite went away empty handed for a change as the ensemble comedy Movie 43 and M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi After Earth picked up three gongs apiece, with Movie 43 claiming Worst Picture, Worst Director(s) and Worst Screenplay and Jaden Smith and Will Smith named Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo.
Check out the full list of nominees here, with the "winners" highlighted in red....

You know, the Oscars weren’t the only major awards to be handed out this past weekend! On Saturday, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards were announced in a ceremony at IgnitedSpaces in Hollywood. While the Academy Awards celebrate the very best that Hollywood has to offer, these make a point of highlighting the worst.
While many expected Grown Ups 2 to walk away with the majority of the prestigious Golden Raspberry statues, it was in fact the even worse Movie 43 which would end up the big winner (or should that be loser?) of the night.
Will Smith and his son Jaden would end up taking away prizes for both “Worst Actor” and “Worst Supporting Actor”, a sharp contrast to eight years ago when both were praised for their performances in The Pursuit of Happyness. Many of his fans still right believe that the older Smith has an Oscar in his future, »

After Earth and Movie 43 might have earned the titles of "Worst" movies of the year . thanks to receiving "honors" at the Razzies on Saturday evening . but the big "story" (I.ll stop with the quotation marks, I promise) is the complete shutout of Adam Sandler.s atrocious Grown Ups 2 at the event. Wait, does that mean that Sandler.s sequel is actually good? Let.s not get carried away, though EW.com does note that Sandler.s sequel, directed by Dennis Dugan, avoided picking up any Razzies despite racking up the most nominations across the entire field. How does a film Dominate the nominations, then lay a goose egg on "wins?" Shoot, more quotation marks. It.s hard not to use them when talking about the Razzies! Anyway, the winners on the evening at the 34th annual Razzie Awards were: Worst Picture Movie 43 Worst Actor Jaden Smith »
The results are in, the envelopes have been opened, and the "winners" of the 34th Razzie Awards have been unveiled in ceremonies held at Hollywood's coolest new venue - just down the street from Sunday night's Oscars - IgnitedSpaces. The hour long show handed out at least one statuette to four of the five Worst Picture nominees, but Adam Sandler and his unfunny follow up Grown Ups 2 went home empty-handed.
Taking three of the top awards was the star-studded, snicker-free sketch comedy Movie 43, which "won" for Worst Screenplay (written by at least 19 people), Worst Director ("credited" to 13 people), and Worst Picture. Tying with 43, and also "winning" 3 gold spray-painted trophies, was the Will Smith and Jaden Smith sci-fi fiasco After Earth. Dad Will Smith took Worst Supporting Actor, son Jaden Smith was named Worst Lead Actor, and the combination of father & son, described in the ceremony as being "stranded »
While this weekend's biggest awards show is obviously the Oscars, there's another award ceremony that is often just as contentious (and usually way more fun): the Razzies, which have "honored," for the past 34 years, the very worst cinema has to offer. Amazingly, Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups 2" didn't take home the top prize. Instead, that honor went to "Movie 43," a movie that was a collection of astoundingly unfunny sketches featuring some surprisingly huge ...

It's game day. The Academy Awards ceremony obviously takes place this evening and so, like clockwork, the ignominious folks that run the Razzie Awards have unveiled their list for the worst movies of the year. The biggest story this year is that the Razzie committee failed to award Adam Sandler anything. Odd, given how much the organization seems to loathe Sandler's many comedies. And oh yes, “Grown Ups 2” was nominated in several worst categories, but the Razzies saw fit to declare many other films as far more egregious in failure. Taking three of the top prizes at The 34th Annual Razzie Awards was the star-studded sketch comedy “Movie 43,” helmed by 13 different directors (among them Brett Ratner, The Farrelly Brothers, James Gunn and several actors like Elizabeth Banks) and 19 different screenwriters. A collection of comedy vignettes that neither critics nor audiences found largely funny, and the Razzies agreed, “gifting »

M Night Shyamalan's After Earth picks up awards for worst actor, worst supporting actor, and worst screen combo
Big-budget sci-fi flop After Earth and ensemble comedy Movie 43 led the Razzie awards on Saturday, while annual favourite Adam Sandler went home empty-handed at the ceremony that mauls Hollywood's worst films and performances of the year.
After Earth, starring Will Smith and his teenage son Jaden, picked up three gold spray-painted raspberry accolades: Jaden Smith for worst actor, Will Smith for worst supporting actor and worst screen combo for the father-son stars.
Relativity Media's Movie 43, which features 16 off-beat comedy sketches with stars including Halle Berry, Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman, won worst picture, worst screenplay for its 19 screenwriters, »
Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2013. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Movie 43," beating out such films as "After Earth," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger" and "A Madea Christmas." The movie also won for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. The theme of this year's Razzies focused on the Smith family, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor and Will Smith winning for Worst Supporting Actor for "After Earth." The father-son team also won in the Worst Screen Combo category. The only good news is that Adam Sandler and his "Grown Ups 2" went some how ignored, despite dominating the awards show for two straight years. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (in red) below. Worst Picture: * Movie 43 * After Earth »

In what apparently qualifies as good news for Adam Sandler, the comic actor is no longer the favored target at the Razzie Awards. The 34th annual “celebration” of the worst in cinema took place on Saturday night, in its traditional slot the night before the Oscars, with Sandler and his film “Grown Ups 2” being completely shut out despite going into the show with a field-leading eight nominations. Instead of loving to hate Sandler, Razzie voters loved to hate Will Smith’s “After Earth” and the misbegotten anthology film “Movie 43,” each of which “won” a trio of “awards” designed to single. »

You may be busy plating your charcuterie or putting gold frosting on sugar cookies in preparation for a loaded Oscar bash, but don’t forget that there’s another major movie awards show going down in Hollywood this weekend.
On March 1, the winners of the 34th annual Razzie Awards were announced in a ceremony at IgnitedSpaces in Hollywood. Honoring the worst films of the year with a prestigious Golden Raspberry statue, the annual awards call out the year’s biggest stars to “Own Their Bad,” which occasionally happens when folks like Sandra Bullock actually show up at the ceremony to »

Take Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Kristen Bell, Gerard Butler, Anna Faris, Kate Winslet and some other high-wattage marquee names, put them together in one episodic comedy, and what do you get? The worst movie of 2013, according the 750 voting members of the Golden Raspberry Foundation, which on Oscar eve Saturday handed out the 34th annual Razzie Awards - three of them to Movie 43. Matching that benchmark was the sci-fi adventure After Earth and its stars, the father-and-son team of Will Smith and Jaden Smith - who, it was said at the ceremony, were left "stranded on Planet Nepotism." Also in the mix: Kim Kardashian, »

The Spirit Awards wrapped this afternoon, a casual-atmosphere and frequently moving celebration of independent filmmaking. In some cases, the winners foreshadow Sunday’s, but in many other instances, the Spirits honored some terrific work that was absent from Oscar’s roster.
On Sunday, the Academy Awards will mark the official close of 2013 film awards. So before that final love fest, let’s pause for a moment and recognize great work by some people who were Not given enough recognition this year.
For example, Stephen Frears. Few people could have maintained the comedy-tragedy balancing act in “Philomena” like he did, and nobody could have done it better. So why didn’t the director get more attention? Maybe because it was a strong year, and maybe because there’s an indefinable buzz that attaches to some work, but not others.
So for all of you who were not nominated for an Oscar, »

The motion picture academy may have a notoriously short memory, but Razzie Award voters reached back more than a year to decide their Worst Picture. "Movie 43," released Jan. 25, 2013, was the winner of that dubious achievement, as well as Worst Director (for 13 credited filmmakers including Elizabeth Banks, Brett Ratner, and Peter Farrelly) and Worst Screenplay (19 writers were "honored" for their unfortunate contributions). Click here for the complete list of winners. "Movie 43" was a strong contender as soon as it was released to scathing reviews (18 on MetaCritic, 4% freshness on Rotten Tomatoes) and poor box office (less than $30 million worldwide), but it seemed to be overshadowed last summer by the higher profile critical flops "After Earth," "The Lone Ranger," and "Grown Ups 2," which were all ahead of "Movie 43" in our racetrack odds. Despite losing Worst Picture, "After Earth" m »
This weekend we're all going to learn which movie the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences believes is the Best Picture of 2013. But for every truly great movie like 12 Years a Slave and Gravity, Hollywood churns out about 50 truly wretched films like A Good Day to Die Hard and Grown Ups 2.
Readers' Poll: The 25 Greatest Movies of the 1980s
Now we have a question for you: What was the single worst movie you saw in the past year? Did The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug bore you to tears? »
Glamour! Elegance! The sweet smell of self-congratulation! None will be present at the 34th annual Razzie Awards, a proudly low-budget event dedicated to dishonoring the previous year’s worst movies. (Actually, make that “no-budget”; have you seen the Razzies’ website? It looks like a Geocities page from 1996.)
There are several strong contenders in this year’s Razzies race, from father-and-son team Will and Jaden Smith to perennial “winner” Adam Sandler and Golden Raspberry Award Foundation favorite Sylvester Stallone, who snagged a record-breaking 31st nomination for his work in three 2013 films. (Note: It is not hard to become a member of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. »
