Razzies 2008

The Razzies are an annual mirror to the Oscars in that they are the awards for the worst films of the year. This year’s nominees certainly deserve to be a part of the ceremony.

No Razzie award year would be complete without a film by Uwe Boll, the director of such video game adaptations as Alone In the Dark, Bloodrayne and House of the Dead. This year he directed both Postal and In the Name of the King. Not exactly masterpieces.

Leading the nominations this year is the Mike Myers vehicle The Love Guru, with seven nods, including one for worst picture along with In the Name of the King, The Hottie and the Nottie, The Happening and Disaster Movie and Meet the Spartans, which are nominated together (as it says on the official Razzie Awards website “Two Movies-One Badly Beaten Dead Horse of a Concept!”)

In this particularly weak movie year, it was certainly hard to pick the worst of the worst, but the Razzies is one awards program that always seems to get it right. The official ceremony will be held on February 21st, one night before the Oscars.
