2010 Razzie nominations

One of the least anticipated awards shows in Hollywood, (especially by those who've been nominated) the Razzie Awards have been dishonoring the very worst to come out of Hollywood since 1980.

This year, nominees were announced on the morning of January 24, 2011. Coming up, the the awards ceremony will be held on the traditional night before the Oscars — on Saturday, February 26, 2011.

According to the official Razzie Awards web site, nominees are determined by more than 725 film professionals, film journalists and film fans from around the U.S. and 15 foreign countries.

2011 Razzie nominees

This year, major brickbats go to 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse', 'The Last Airbender', 'The Bounty Hunter', 'Sex & The City 2', and 'Vampires Suck' with singular notices for performances utterly devoid of quality.

Worst Actor nods went to Ashton Kutcher for both 'Killers' and 'Valentine's Day'; Gerard Butler for 'The Bounty Hunter', Jack Black for 'Gulliver's Travels', Robert Pattinson for 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' and 'Remember Me'; and Taylor Lautner for 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse'.

Worst Actress nods went to Jennifer Aniston for 'The Bounty Hunter'; Miley Cyrus for 'The Last Song'; The Four "Gal Pals" for 'Sex & The City 2'; Megan Fox for 'Jonah Hex'; and Kristen Stewart for 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse'.

A new category for 2011 features the ever-so-trendy Worst Eye-Gouging Use of 3D including 'Cats & Dogs 2: Revenge Of Kitty Galore', 'Clash of the Titans', 'The Last Airbender' 'Nutcracker 3D' and 'Saw 3D'.

As usual, the Razzies suffered obsessive-compulsive disorder in nominating the same handful of movies over and over again in several categories. However, other likely contenders that didn't make the list this year included The Tooth Fairy, starring The Rock ("you can't handle the tooth") in a performance more painful than root canal — followed by another Jennifer Lopez stinker in The Back-Up Plan. And let's not forget the epic failure that was Furry Vengeance which may well have ended the careers of everyone involved including star actor Brendan Frazer.

Other likely nominees this year the Razzie missed? They included Dinner for Schmucks, MacGruber, and Marmaduke.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
