2011 Razzies Reveal The Worst of The Worst

The night before the Oscars, celebrating the best in cinema, are handed out, a ceremony of a very different kind is taking place in Hollywood. For the past 31 years, the Razzie Awards have been dishonoring the worst movies made the previous year. The annual event took place this year at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre. Sounds eleganza extravaganza, doesn’t it?

Coming out on top, or should I say bottom, was the much reviled “The Last Airbender“. The fantasy 3D flick took home five Razzies including Worst Picture and one for its director, M. Night Shyamalan. Whatever happened to him? He was so good with “The Sixth Sense”. Placing a close second for overall crapiness, was “Sex and the City 2“. The critically-panned sequel sashayed away with 3 awards including one for the entire cast.

Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba and the ladies of SATC took home a Razzie each for their acting violations. I love Jessica Alba, but her nomination and win were justified, considering all the awful movies she was in last year, including “Little Fockers” and “Machete”. Unlike in previous years, none of the celebrities honored, showed up to accept their Razzie in person.

Last year Sandra Bullock showed up on the Saturday to pick up her Razzie, then won an Oscar the following night. Other celebs who’ve embraced the satirical ceremony and shown up in person were Halle Berry (Catwoman), Bill Cosby (Leonard 6) and Ben Affleck (Gigli, Daredevil, Paycheck”.
