Wow...what a field. I know I shouldn't be, but I really can't believe that Hollywood churned out this much crap in one calendar year. Any one of these movies could sweep and it would work.

You know, I know that Dukes of Hazzard was a crime against God and man, but Jessica Simpson + Daisy Dukes = second-best thing ever. (behind Catherine Bach back in the day, of course). Other than that, they pretty much nailed it.

I can. Especially considering that Hollywood will churn out enough crap in just the first two months of this year to stockpile enough nominees for *next* year's Razzies.

Picks some other time.

Hey, The Rock kicked ass in Doom!

Other than that, yep, crappy year for movies.

Halle Berry took a year off, but I'm sure the increased prominence she demanded for X3 will ensure a swift and sure victory for her next year.

You know what would make the Razzies fun? If they were just something some dude came up with on his website. However, fully grown adults actually putting together an awards show for what they deem crap is just a waste of time and money.

I'm just happy they didn't use the Razzies as a forum for their political beliefs this year. Britney Spears and George W. Bush as worst actors in Fahrenheit 911? Come on.

I'm no big fan of Tom Cruise, but nominating a Razzie to a multiple Oscar nominated actor just seems to come off as nothing but more Tom & Katie bashing rather than actually awarding him for bad acting. I think he did a decent job in "War Of The Worlds."

How bad was this year? This year saw a remake of an American cinematic classic redone as a zany comedy with Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac which *wasn't* nominated for Worst Remake/Sequel and the movies they came up with were all actually worse.

He was pathetic in War of the Worlds. I could not even for a minute buy him as a blue collar divrced deadbeat dad. Of course since he IS TOM CRUISE, he is able to walk out into the blood soaked land looking for his daughter, watch her get adbucted by tripods, have the presence of mind to find some hand grenades, then PURPOSELY get abducted by same said tripod, get almost swallowed by said tripod, be lucky enough to have other people in the basket pull him out as he is being swallowed, and have the presence of mind to pull the pins and blow up said tripod, fall, I don't know, 50+ feet to the ground, AND LIVE (as does his daughter), escape furhter tripods and return his daughter to Boston to be with her mom and new dad. What a hero.

They took a great premise and shit on it. This movie was a complete waste of my time. Only in his pathetic acting was I able to find some humor.

No, it's the Razzies that are pathetic. They're a desperate cry for attention, made obvious by their ignoring better/worse candidates in favor of newsworthy ones. Come on, "Jessica Simpson & her Daisy Dukes" as worst couple? That's just idiotic. I dislike the woman as much as anyone but that's just trying too hard to be cute.

Meh. It's no more annoying and pathetic than Blackwell's worst dressed list or Simon Cowell's catty kvetching on Amer'n Idol every week. Pop Culture needs this self-mockery as an innoculation against its own lethal earnestness and self-importance.
