I don’t usually like to cover the Razzies, because I’m kind of opposed to them in spirit. There are a thousand terrible movies that come out every year, and even limiting it to just major-release films, there’s no way the Razzie voters saw even half of them, which means the awards basically come down to what’s most popular to hate, and there’s something vaguely icky and Seltzer-Friedbergian about that to me. That said, they did choose The Last Airbender as the year’s worst movie, and I have a hard time imagining anything worse (and I saw Big Momma’s House 3 last week).
“Winners” were determined by mailing ballots to 637 voters in 46 U.S. states and 17 foreign countries. Electronic voting and certification of this year’s Final RAZZIE® Ballot was handled by Vote-Now.com.
Like I said, there’s no real rhyme or reason, it’s just a People’s Choice Awards in reverse.
Worst Picture Winner 2010
The Last Airbender
Worst Actor Winner 2010
Ashton Kutcher (Killers and Valentine’s Day)
I’m sure both of those movies are terrible and I wouldn’t mind seeing Ashton Kutcher get kicked in the nuts by a donkey, but was he really the worst actor? The answer of course is no, Paul Walker had a movie out last year.
Worst Actress Winner 2010
Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis & Cynthia Nixon (Sex and the City 2)
Worst Supporting Actor Winner 2010
Jackson Rathbone (The Last Airbender and Twilight Saga: Eclipse)
Jackson Rathbone might be a terrible actor, but it’s hard to tell. DeNiro would look like an idiot too if he had to wear outfits like these:

Jessica Alba (The Killer Inside Me, Little Fockers, Machete and Valentine’s Day)
Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D (Special Category for 2010!) Winner 2010

Ooh, they should make up more categories. Maybe they can award Manny Most Indian Poophead of a director.

Sex and the City 2 [via ComingSoon]
Yeah yeah, we get it, you don’t like Sex and the City 2. Sorry, I don’t really disagree with any of the choices, it’s just that I’d much rather read Lindy lay into Sex and the City 2 on the grounds of it being two hours of gay men playing with giant barbie dolls than discuss the finer points of some dork’s pseudo-scientific chain email poll where he plugs his crappy books above the results. I award the Razzies the Golden Mouthfart of Dismissive Wankyness.
