It’s that time of year again. The time when actors and actresses are honored for all the hard work they piled together in the 12 months leading up to one moment of pay off and a tiny little statue. We’re speaking, of course, about the Razzie Awards. These are the awards given out on the eve of Oscar night to those actors, actresses, and fimlmmakers who have produced some of the worst film projects to hit theaters in the past year.
Many remember last year’s big Worst Actress winner being Sandra Bullock, who went on the very next night to win an Oscar for a role in a completely different film. This year’s potentials could have the same luck, but we doubt it. Here’s the shortlist of actors from LA Times.
Among movies and actors shortlisted for the Razzies are Jessica Alba, who is eligible for worst supporting actress for four films (“The Killer Inside Me,” “Little Fockers,” “Machete” and “Valentine’s Day”), and Emily Blunt, eligible in the same category for her work in “The Wolfman” and “Gulliver’s Travels.”
George Lopez is a contender for worst supporting actor for his performances in “Marmaduke,” “The Spy Next Door” and “Valentine’s Day.” Mickey Rourke has been singled out in the same category for “The Expendables” and “Iron Man 2.”
None of these are very shocking, and neither are the films potentially up for Worst Film. Movies like The Bounty Hunter, Clash of the Titans, The Expendables, Grown Ups, Jonah Hex, Killers, The Last Airbender, Little Fockers, Sex and the City 2, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Yogi Bear all make that list, with a brand new category for worst 3D film of the year.
The full list of nominations is set to roll out on January 24th, but there is plenty of time between now and then to throw your vote in at the Razzie Official Forum. Until Oscar’s Eve, we’ll be watching!
