30th Razzie nominations including worst of the decade

Razzie.jpgThe annual Golden Raspberry awards have been announced, otherwise known as the Razzies, and I think this year it's clear they just aren't leaping on the popular, or rather non-popular, choices, for there are some big films in there.

I can't say I've seen all the films, but I definitely agree with a lot of the choices, see if you do.

I do find it surprising that Land of the Lost (Filmstalker review) is in the running for Worst Picture, there were far worse than that in the last year, and I'm sure some will be annoyed at the appearance of a couple of titles, I mean Transformers and G.I. Joe?

Well what did you think of that list? I have to say there are some really deserving names in there, but I think there'll be a little controversy over some of them. Who would you vote for and who would you save?

Next, as everyone is doing, the Razzies have tackled the past decade, and here we see some truly terrifying films and performances:

Worst Picture of the Decade
Battlefield Earth (2000)
Nominated for 10 Razzies / "Winner" of 8

I know what my choices are here, this is clear, Battlefield Earth, Eddie Murphy, and Paris Hilton. Surely?

Come on, you have to have some thoughts and disagreements. Is anyone going to fight for Transformers and G.I. Joe?
