The 2019 Golden Raspberry Awards were announced right before the stroke of midnight on Friday night, February 22. These 39th annual awards, “honoring” the worst achievements in film, were decided by more than 1,000 eligible voting members across all 50 states and two dozen foreign countries, while the Razzie Redeemer Award was chosen by registered users right here at Gold Derby. So who were the big winners — or losers, if you will? Watch the complete Razzies announcement video above, and scroll down to see the complete list of nominees and winners below.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have teamed up on comedy projects before, including “Talladega Nights” (2006) and “Step Brothers” (2008), but their December 25 release “Holmes and Watson” turned out to be coal in moviegoers’ Christmas stockings. The comic take on Arthur Conan Doyle‘s “Sherlock Holmes” stories scored a lowly 24 on MetaCritic, so it’s not too surprising that it was the Razzies

‘Under The Bridge’: David Ajala To Star In CBS Drama Pilot From Rina Mimoun
Nightflyers star David Ajala is set as a lead of Under the Bridge, from Mistresses executive producer Rina Mimoun and Jerry Bruckheimer TV.

In Under the Bridge, penned by Mimoun, when a scandal rocks the medical practice she runs with her husband and their friends, a surgeon rises to the occasion and takes the lead in trying to mend both the practice and her own marriage.

Ajala, who fielded multiple offers this pilot season, will play Dan, a gorgeous, dry and somewhat broken man who “works hard for everything, except sex. That comes easily.” Back in the day, he hoped that Kate would wind up with him, but she married his best friend, Michael (Tbd), instead. When Dan votes to separate Michael from their medical practice, Michael considers it a personal betrayal. Only Dan knows the real reason: that in order to protect his best friend, he must be willing to sacrifice their relationship.

Toby Emmerich on Warners Bros.' 'Crazy Rich' Year: "We All Feel Like We've Turned a Corner Now"

Toby Emmerich on Warners Bros.' 'Crazy Rich' Year:
One year after Toby Emmerich ascended to chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group and consolidated his power, his team's 2018 slate of films has gone a long way in restoring the studio to stability. The success follows a difficult era with big misses like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), Jupiter Ascending (2015) and Pan (2015) punctuated by a win here and there, such as 2017's Wonder Woman, It and Dunkirk (Emmerich was president and chief content officer at the time after jumping from New Line to Warners in late 2016).

On Jan. 19, Emmerich, 55, will be feted with the ...

Aquaman Critic Reactions Arrive, What Did They Think?

The first wave of Aquaman critical reactions have washed ashore. Previously, a few scattered fan reactions were found on Twitter, but now a ton of critics have shared their thoughts on social media. So how did it go? There's hardly a bad review in the bunch, with some calling this even better than Wonder Woman, and a few others going even a step further. Fandango's Erik Davis had this to say.

"#Aquaman is the most ambitious DC movie to date, a big, sprawling visual spectacle that is gorgeous, crazy, stuffed with terrific action, and a lot of fun to watch. James Wan, in my opinion, is the true star, he elevates the material, makes it entertaining and conquers it."

Consistently, there is a ton of praise for director James Wan, who seems to have crafted a sprawling and satisfying entry in the DC movie universe. Originally, Wan was just

Eddie Redmayne on his Razzie-winning Jupiter Ascending role

In the same year that Eddie Redmayne received the Academy Award for his turn as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, the British actor was also stinking up the screen as the villain Balem Abrasax in the Wachowskis’ box office turkey Jupiter Ascending.

Now, during an interview with GQ (via Av Club) to promote his new film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, he’s acknowledged his Jupiter Ascending role was worthy of its Razzie Award-winning “success”, as well as offering up an explanation for his whispery performance:

“I won a prize for it for the worst performance of the year. So, yeah, it was a pretty bad performance by all accounts,” said Redmayne. “In Jupiter Ascending, my character had had his larynx ripped out by this wolf man, and so I made the slightly bold choice, which I thought was right, of talking like this for the whole film.

Eddie Redmayne Is Aware People Hate His Acting, Especially ‘Jupiter Ascending’

Eddie Redmayne Is Aware People Hate His Acting, Especially ‘Jupiter Ascending’
Eddie Redmayne, back in theaters around the world this weekend with “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” knows he is not everyone’s cup of acting tea. The Oscar winner recently spoke to GQ for a career retrospective interview and got honest about how the public has received him as an actor over the years.

“We have this spread in England for toast called Marmite,” Redmayne said. “And the ad slogan is ‘You either like it or you hate it.’ And I’ve always thought of myself as a bit of a Marmite actor. People either enjoy what I do or loathe what I do.”

No performance of Redmayne’s has been more “love-it-or-hate-it” than his villainous turn as Balem Abrasax in “Jupiter Ascending,” directed by the Wachowski siblings. Playing a galaxy-conquering emperor, Redmayne delivered a gloriously over-the-top villain that inspired both takedowns of his campy work and grand celebrations

Watch: Eddie Redmayne Finally Explains That Weird ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Voice

When Eddie Redmayne was in the running for an Oscar for his performance in Theory of Everything, some wondered if his chances would be hindered by his performance in another movie that came out just as Oscar voting was underway: Jupiter Ascending. The original sci-fi film from The Wachowskis was an ambitious, bold epic that showcased a very ambitious, very bold performance from Redmayne as Balem Abrasax, an emperor who controls the wealthiest business empire in the known universe. Redmayne’s performance as Abrasax is out there, complete with a voice that modulates between a whisper and a scream …

‘Jupiter Ascending’ Takes Flight as New Ballet Production

With its gloriously over-the-top dialogue and otherworldly visuals, the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending certainly earned its moniker of “space opera.” What looks to be the filmmaking duo’s final feature (at least for the time being) is getting a second life on the stage, but rather than in opera form, it’s been adapted as a new ballet.

Designed and choreographed by Pacific Northwest Ballet company dancer Kyle Davis, the production is titled A Dark and Lonely Space, and was specifically inspired by Michael Giacchino’s score. “The Wachowskis have epic ideas and characters who traverse large landscapes and seek all kinds of adventures that aren’t really bound to the linear world,” Giacchino said. “The idea of having Kyle Davis choreograph dance pieces to the movements that were inspired by their work is another way to explore those grand themes. It’s gratifying to have the music take on another art form.

After finishing “The Matrix” trilogy, films like “Speed Racer,” “Cloud Atlas,” and “Jupiter Ascending,” while finding cult audiences over the years, never connected with general audiences.

With No Film Projects in Development, The Wachowski's Are Closing Down Their Production Offices

The Wachowski sibling filmmaking team that brought us The Matrix, Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas, Jupiter Ascending, and Sense 8 have hit some hard times. With no projects currently in development, they are shutting their production offices and selling off the building.

The Wachowski’s have operated out of these 21,500-square-foot-office building for over a decade and now they are asking for around $5 million, which is said to be "way below" what they invested in it.

Lana Wachowski’s wife Karin Wachowski said their “dream space” is closing because no new productions are scheduled. The last project produced by was Netflix’s Sense 8 series.

The filmmakers were developing several other projects but obviously they couldn’t get any of them off the ground. They were working on an Iraq War found footage film called Cobalt Neural 9 as well as modern-day take on Robin Hood. There was also a reboot of The Matrix in development,

The Wachowskis Are Closing Chicago Production Office As They Have No Projects Currently in Development

Lana and Lilly Wachowski are closing their Chicago production office and putting the space up for sale, Crain’s Chicago Business reports. The sibling filmmakers have operated out of the facility, located in the Ravenswood Avenue building, for more than a decade. The production office has been home to Wachowski projects such as “Speed Racer” (2008), “Cloud Atlas” (2012), “Jupiter Ascending” (2015), and the Netflix series “Sense8” (2015-18).

“Lilly and I have always tried to build family wherever we worked, and for years this building has been that family’s home,” Lana Wachowski said in a statement to Chicago Business.

The Wachowski siblings have operated out of the building since 2007. While the directors often shoot their projects in and around Berlin, they bought the Chicago offices to have a space for writing, pre-production, and post-production. Karin Wachowski, Lana’s wife, said the reason for closing the office is because the filmmakers have no

Pacific Northwest Ballet will premiere a new work with music by film composer Michael Giacchino on Nov. 2 at Seattle Opera House’s McCaw Hall.

Designed and choreographed by Pnb company dancer Kyle Davis, “A Dark and Lonely Space” will feature symphony orchestra, soprano soloist and chorus, a spokeswoman said.

Giacchino, an Oscar winner for “Up” and an Emmy winner for “Lost,” said the ballet will feature five dramatic movements drawn from his music for The Wachowskis’ 2015 space opera “Jupiter Ascending.”
