I love the Golden Raspberry Awards, or Razzies as they’re more commonly known. Highlighting the very worst in cinematic fare they offer a chance at a star-studded evening for even the poorest filmmakers.

Of course it’s usually some big names that have released some duds that are the target of these awards, and this year is no exception. Leading the lowly is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, a catastrophic mess of a movie that single-handedly undoes all the good that the first did for Michael Bay’s career. Sharing the limelight on 7 nominations is Land of the Lost, a deeply unfunny Will Ferrell starrer that cost $100 million and made back less than half of that. G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Twilight Saga: New Moon were also nominated in a host of categories including Worst Movie and Worst Script.

As 2009 marked the end of the noughties there are also some special categories this yea for Worst Movie, Actor and Actress of the Decade. Unsurprisingly Paris Hilton, Eddie Murphy and Battlefield Earth are strong contenders.

Worth watching is Sandra Bullock for Worst Actress in All About Steve, as she is hotly tipped for Oscar glory for The Blind Side. It would be quite the feat if she nabbed both honours.
