Trivia (5)

Founder & Head RAZZberry of The Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE) Awards, the famous annual awards which work as a counterpoint to the Oscars by dis-honoring the worst of everything in Hollywood.
Although Battlefield Earth (2000) "won" the 2001 Razzie Award for Worst Picture (as well as several others), Wilson himself actually thought that fellow Worst Picture nominee Little Nicky (2000) was a far worse film and was actually his personal choice for the award.
Always chooses to cast his votes last (for both nominations and final ballots) at the Razzies.
His father was Drew Wilson
In his capacity as a copywriter/producer for Fox Movie Channel, he created on-air promos for more than 850 Fox film titles in less than two-and-a-half years.

Personal Quotes (1)

I like to think of the Razzie Awards as not so much a slap in the face to Hollywood but a banana peel on the floor.
