Before award season comes to an unofficial end tonight with the Oscars, another Hollywood tradition took place devoid of stars, fancy dresses or even stars. It’s the guilty pleasure known as the Razzies.
“The Last Airbender” took home the Razzie for Worst Picture on it’s way to leading Saturday’s Razzies with a total of five awards including worst director and worst screenplay for M. Night Shyamalan. Praise for film was non-existent from the show’s founder John Wilson. “He’s managed to take a cartoon property and make it even less lifelike by making it with real actors, ” said Wilson. “Most people who like the show, and this would include my 14-year-old son, hated the movie. It made no sense whatsoever.”
The mockery of the Academy Awards which takes place the night before the Oscars celebrates Hollywood’s most skewered cinematic uh…achievements. This year was no different as nominees once again lacked the courage of last year’s winner Sandra Bullock in showing up to accept the award.
Rounding out the top honors: Ashton Kutcher was voted as worst actor for not only “Killers”, but also “Valentine’s Day”. Jessica Alba cleaned house for worst actress in four 2010 films including “The Killer Inside Me”, “Little Fockers”, “Machete” and Valentine’s Day.”
So what about Worst Actress, you may ask? Well, that honor went to the stars of “Sex and the City 2″. I’m assuming Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon’s invites were lost in the mail. Wilson wasn’t short in explaining why they deserved the prize.
“It was released in the middle of a period of American history when everyone’s scrounging not to lose their homes, and these women are riding around in Rolls-Royces, buying expensive shoes and just throwing money around like they’re drunk, ” said Wilson.
