2012 Razzie Awards – Nominees and Picks

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 12:15 am

The 2012 Razzie Awards were announced the day before the Oscars, and the actual event will be held on April Fool’s Day. Honoring the worst movies of the previous year, this ceremony marks the 32nd time that Hollywood has officially been called on the carpet for unleashing slipshod goods for the consumption of the general public.

The first Razzies took place in the living room alcove of creator John J.B. Wilson in 1981, with inaugural “winners” ranging from Neil Diamond and Brooke Shields to Can’t Stop the Music. The ceremony has continued to grow with the passage of time, and the voting body now numbers over 600 (including those in 17 foreign countries). If you ever decide you want to be part of the fun, you can become a voter by making a cash donation. For more information, check out the official Razzie Awards website.

If you’re wondering who’s the favorite to win, look no further than Adam Sandler and his pitiful 2011 offering Jack and Jill. But Sandler didn’t stop there. No, his Happy Madison Productions cranked out three movies that critics considered among the worst of the year. All are nominated in some capacity, giving Sandler the dubious distinction of the most nominations ever (11) by a single individual. This more than doubles the old record held by Eddie Murphy.

In case you need a reminder…

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s take a look at all the nominees on this year’s ballot. I’ve also thrown in my predictions in bold, and you’re encouraged to make your own picks in our comments section.
