My Picks for the Razzies

The nominations for the 2008 Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced.
(h/t screenrant).

A lot of people are making Oscar predictions. For now, I'm going to stick with predicting the Razzies.

Worst Picture: The Love Guru (just based on the trailers I saw).

Worst Actor: Larry the Cable Guy (for Witless Protection). I think Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy will split the vote for once-respected-comic-actor-known-for-playing-multiple-roles-who-is-now-scraping-the-bottom-of-the-barrel, leaving the he-only-ever-plays-one-character vote in the lead.

Worst Actress: Paris Hilton (for the Hottie and the Nottie). Because no one can resist ridiculing Paris Hilton.

Worst Supporting Actor: Pierce Brosnan (for Mama Mia!). He never should have tried to sing.

Worst Supporting Actress: Kim Kardashian (for Disaster Movie). Unless Paris Hilton somehow doesn't "win" Worst Actress, in which case she will get this consolation Razzie (for Repo: the Genetic Opera).

Worst Screen Couple: Eddie Murphy IN Eddie Murphy (in Meet Dave). Because he must be stopped before he makes any more of these crappy multiple-roles movies.

Worse Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel: The Day the Earth Blowed Up Real Good. Because Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will have to compete with Star Wars: Clone Wars for the stop-George-Lucas-before-he-destroys-another-cherished-memory-of-my-youth vote.

Worst Director: M. Night Shyamalan (for The Happening). Because Uwe Boll (who made three crappy movies that were released in 2008) is being recognized with a special Razzie, this one should go to Shyamalan, who was once a respected director and still has delusions of greatness.

Worst Screenplay: Mike Myers & Graham Gordy (for The Love Guru).

Worst Career Achievement (Special Category): Uwe Boll ("Germany's answer to Ed Wood"). Because he's the only one nominated.

Excellent choices.

The Oscars are nothing more than an exercise in self-congratualtions anyway.

I'm troubled that Shyamalan still has delusions of adequacy. Some people need a good editor. MK is one of them.
