34th Annual ‘Razzie Awards’ Winners!

‘Movie 43’ ’won’ three awards for Worst Screenplay, Worst Director and Worst Picture, while ‘After Earth’ also took home three awards.
Movie 43 won three awards for Worst Screenplay, Worst Director and Worst Picture, while After Earth also took home three awards.

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 on Planet Nepotism", took the award for Worst Screen Combo.

Rounding out the names read when the envelopes were torn were: Tyler Perry (in drag) as Worst Actress for his 8th time playing the cross-dressing character in Tyler Perry's a Madea Christmas; Kim Kardashian in Tyler Perry's Temptation as Worst Supporting Actress; and the year's biggest box office bomb, a $250 million "reboot" of The Lone Ranger (on which Disney took a $200 million tax write off) which was chosen as Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel.

For eight of this year's 9 Razzie categories, nominees and "winners" were determined by seeking online votes from about 800 G.R.A.F. Members in 47 U.S. states and 15 foreign countries. The nominees and eventual "winner" for the 9th category, Worst Screen Combo, were determined by votes from over 80,000 users at the popular movie review website RottenTomatoes.com.

The Razzies were created in 1980 as a logical antidote to Tinsel Town's annual glut of self- congratulatory awards by John Wilson, author of The Official Razzie Movie Guide and Everything I Know I Learned at the Movies.

    @2movieguys -- He was pretty bad. Albeit, so was Adam Sandler. I don't think his 'performance' in "Grown Ups 2" would qualify as acting.

    @Brizzy -- Agreed. Scary Movie and Grown Ups 2 were A LOT worse than The Lone Ranger.

    @mr-k: I had torrented Movie 43 months ago, and forgotten about it till a couple of days ago. I could only get through about half the film before I stopped it, and deleted it from my computer.

    I can agree with the winners, because if there was one film worse than The Lone Ranger it would be Movie 43 which I unfortunately watched just recently.
