40th Razzies announcement feature

razzie award

While the Academy Awards recognizes the best in film-making achievements every year, the Golden Raspberry Awards (aka the Razzies) does just the opposite. Not every movie can be a home run and every once in a while a movie is just straight-up bad. A lot of the time we quickly forget those films and move on, but the Razzies think the bad films deserve just as much recognition as the outstanding ones.
